  1. Hello, names Shawn trying to figure out whats wrong with my pc.

    p4vm800 as-rock mother board
    2.8 prescott proc.
    geforce 7300gt
    dynex 450 watt psu
    Kingston 1024mb ram
    7200rpm maxtor 80gb hd
    onboard lan

    Basically, my old computer went up and i decided to build a new one that was in my price range. I got it setup and i started having alot of hanging problems but they went away after the first day. It performed beautifully until tonight,(exactly 7 days later) i downloaded Prince of Persia from direct2drive and got an "I/O error corrupt installation" error.

    Minutes later my computer started acting strange. It would hang for 30-40seconds and give me 5 seconds where i can control it. After about a half a dozen restarts i decided to check bios to see if it was an overheating issue. Motherboard was steady at 32 degrees celcius, processor was at 47 degrees.

    I was out of options so i reformatted and its running as expected again, however i know im not out of the woods. Event viewer is showed and is currently showing no errors.

    I'm a student at ksu we have to have the most up to date windows updates, run mcafee, and cisco clean access agent. Other then that i can't think of anything im leaving out. exam week is coming up and any tips, help, or input is much appreciated.

    If the freezing or hanging starts again, try installing another stronger power supply
