Computer Freezing Problem
Hey, I hope one of you can help me
ECS K7S5A Motherboard
Enermax 400w PSU
640mb Ram (512 AzenRam, 128 Infineon Ram)
ATI Radeon 7200 64mb Sdr
Onboard Sound and LAN
56K Diamond Supra Modem
My computer keeps freezing, the mouse can still move around, but I can't click anything...
Sometimes my screen goes black...
I dunno what it is, I got all the latest drivers for everything, except for my AGP port. If I install AGP drivers my Radeon won't work. That's why I just re-installed my OS today, I thought that since the latest AGP drivers came out, the problem would be fixed. I was wrong.
All I have installed right now, is MSN Messenger, Internet Explorer 6, my scanner software, and Norton System Works 2001
(only virus protection enabled, crash guard not used since it doesn't help)
I thought it was a problem with my software, since I had 18gb worth of software on it. Now I have 18 free GB and still the same problem.
My computer also freezes alot more with MSN Messenger, every single time I use it, it freezes (some times after 30secs, sometimes after 5 min) I tried re-installing it before and after re-installing my OS and same results.
Also, while installing my scanner software (HP ScanJet 5300C) it froze, but I rebooted and it installed fine.
Any theroy's? my system and CPU temp are at 30°C and 40°C, respectively.
P.S. I dunno if this helps, but I play the online game
Half-Life: Counter-Strike with no problems at all, no freezing. It demands a lot of my video card as I get 99fps max.
