Let me start out with my specs
MB: ASUS P5N32-E SLI
CPU: Pentium E6600
RAM: Corsair XMS2 6400 2x1GB
PSU: Tagan TG800-U25
I've been having a weird pc freeze as of late.
It all started with this blue screen:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.
After this it all went downhill:
I got this screen a couple of times afterwards, and also other stuff seemed to stop working. Mainly my keyboard and mouse. But as you read further this might not be the case because what i saw was maybe just the last image stored in my pc being displayed on screen, so that's why it seemed the keyboard+mouse didn't work any more.
Because after this happening a few times, keyboard+mouse crap out and the blue screens, my pc would start to hang at weird places. In the middle of my MB intro video, at the end (when it says press del to enter bios), sometimes there is no image displayed at all on my monitor, but the system has power. It hangs in the BIOS if i get there, keyboard 'stops' working. I also get a system boot disk failure (whether my HD's are connected or not) if i get passed the MB intro.
Each time i also have to really cut out the power, hold 'on' button for 4 secs, or just flick the switch at the back.
I have tested if my RAM sticks don't work, but the problems don't seem to differ.
As for testing PSU/CPU/MB i have not a clue how...
Does any1 have any insight into what might be the problem here?
thx in advance
