Please help, getting crashes
Hey guys, I can really use some help from you guys that know what your doing..
I have been recently getting these random crashes when I use heavy processing programs such as games, or multitasking, etc.. I never had this before, ever.. I would run games while doing homework and listening to mp3's and my computer would hold up NP.. Now, i dunno what the problem is.. and when I do crash its not a blue screen or a automatic restart like ram flushes usually do, it just stalls, if im playing a song the song will stall in that same spot, cant move mouse, cant alt.ctrl.del, nothing.. I am forced to restart my computer, and when I try to start it up again right away ti doesnt even do a ram count boot! I would have to wait 10 minutes for it to boot..
So i kind of figured this would be an overheating problem, I check my ram chips, checked my agp/pci chips, everything was screwed in correctly and tightly, my fan is working fine, have 2 fans, 2 of em on mobo 1 on vid card.. both are working correctly..
out of desperation I even put my computer closer to my window to see if it would overheat that quickly, lol..
Can anyone please help me? I woudl really appreciate it..
By the way, my specs are: 1.5ghz amd 1800+, 512 ddr ram, gf4 ti 4400 128 mb, running on a winxp build 2600 os..
