  1. Hello all,

    Have a problem with my PC, have had it for about a year now. Works great minus the "freezing" or locking up i get while watching videos or playing video games on it. This problem only seems to occur while im watching a you tube video or playing my favorite game WOW. The PC will freeze or lock up and i have nothing else to do but restart it, sometimes its good for days while other times it happens repeatedly.

    Ive ran memory tests on the ram, and have tested the video memory of my graphics card as well, checked the hardrive, updated and fixed video drivers as well. After all that effort i got it to work again but alas after 30mins or so of running i got a blue screen crash then to a black screen. I restarted the PC only to find this error message:

    couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) as well as

    NTLDR: couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)

    After all the testing i did i thought i had it but to no avail. Looking for any tips or help to get my PC to keep from locking up or freezing on me.

    Have a 3.0ghz Intel core 2 duo processor
    8800 xfx gpu
    4gb ram
    500 hard drive

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
