    Hello guys,
    I need some serious Help please. I have been building a lot of PC's before and never had this prob.
    Here it goes. A brandnew machine freezes constantly after about 3 or 4 minutes. It's not overheating. I checked.
    I ran it with winxp , same prob.
    Win 2000 pro, same prob. CMOS is all default.
    Please take a look at my Belarc report. Please, if anyone can help, I 'd appreciate it.

    I am intriqued as to how your hard drive is quoted at 40Gb, and yet your report shows approx 2 gig used for the OS and yet you only have 18gig left. It sounds as if your drive is configured wrongly which may explain why your machine is hanging

    Yea that's true. Remember
    1. Latest BIOS
    2. Latest Drivers
    3. Latest Firmware
    4. Always run a virus scanner
    5. Keep your pc's health up to par
    6. Ensure you have non-faulty POS hardware
    7. Make sure your Power Supply is powerful enough
    8. Test your memory for errors with Memtest86 available here.

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    i would go into the bios hardware monitor monitor and check voltages. stay there and see if it freezes. if so, try reinserting the memory stick. if a no go, try another memory slot. if still a no go, do as suggested and test the memory with memtest86.
