PC freezes and only sometimes POSTs

  1. Hi.

    My PC sometimes POST's and boots and other times it doesn't. And when it does get to desktop the computer freezes.

    The PC is a new build (3 weeks old) and for the past 2 weeks, the computer has only worked when restarted quite a few times.

    And it's gotten worse over the past week where sometimes it POSTS and sometimes it doesn't and after lots of restarts it reaches the desktop and then freezes.

    I also sometimes get the BSOD which says "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval", and having googled this it really hasn't enlightened any further to what I already think it might be.

    Please help.


    Here are my computer specs:

    CPU: i7 920 @ stock speed
    Motherboard: XFX X58i
    GPU: XFX ATI 4890
    Memory: some generic Micron, 3x1gb, here it is: MT8JTF12864AZ-1G1
    PSU: Corsair 650w
