For the love of god please?!?
Ok, I have looked everywhere but have had no luck in figuring this out. I put together an all new computer, p4 3Ghz, Ic7-G, 2 g's Ram, Radeon 9800 Pro 256, Audigy 2, Xp pro, all the latest drivers and bios. I do also have 6 hard drives four hooked to onboard SATA. I have had all these components working fine together before.
Now what happens is every 30 seconds or so the systems hangs for just 2-3 seconds. I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and looked at the performance tab and watched it for a bit. What I saw was a Cpu usage spike every 30 seconds going up to between 30-70% which somehow hung the whole system for that 2-3 seconds.
Also, another wierd thing that is going on is when I have a window open and scroll the mouse wheel quickly back and forth the systems then hangs for several seconds and I get a long tone from the computer.
I tried to reinstall windows, and all other hardware and software to no avail.
Please any ideas?, I would most appreciate any help.
