Screen lockups

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?dGhlcGNkb2N0b3I=?=, Sep 5, 2005.

  1. I have a persistent problem with the screen freezing necessitating a reboot.
    It can happen randomly when I'm doing anything, but most obvious when I try
    and start games/ applications. These just hang. I have run out of ideas what
    it could be. I have reformatted hard drive 3 times to try and fix this, but
    problem occurs with only OS, motherboard Nvidia nforce 4 drivers and graphics
    drivers installed. I've updated all drivers, graphics, motherboard as well
    as Bios. I've replaced the power supply and hard drive is also new. CPU is
    not overheating. Could it be a flacky electical connection in the case, or
    faulty optical mouse?
    Does anyone have any ideas/ suggestions to help? This is driving me crazy!

    AMD 64 3200 Venice
    K8N Neo4 F MoBo
    Gecube ATi X800XL 256 video
    2 X Corsair 512 RAM
    450 watt power supply
    Win XP SP2

  3. Thanks...should read headers more carefully. Thought it was for 64bit
    processor.
