  1. Im having trouble with my newly built computer freezing at random points during my startup and if it does boot up all the way it always freezes on the "Shutting Down" screen. Im running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and have reinstalled it two times.
    Here is what I currently have in it:

    AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
    ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI
    G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
    WD 1TB HDD
    500W Power supply

    Sounds like there could be an issue with your BIOS... either needs to be flashed to a newer version to fully support the X6 processor or the settings just need to be tweaked. Make sure your memory is running in accordance to factory spec and that your voltages for both CPU and RAM is within acceptable range.
