i just turn on the computer and it freeze up, check all connections inside and reconnect everything. i check the capacitors and their is no dis-colorization i try to reset the CMOS and it start to run again and enter to windows after a few hours, it hang's up, the motherboard is not overheated and even try to replace the power supply unit and it seems to do the trick but after a few days the freeze thing is back again...
|>> Re: cpu freeze during power up
First you check the capacitor of your motherboard. You can use a cd bootdisk from your hardrive manufacturer or create one by downloading the file and burning a cd. It will find and format your hardrive when other programs don't. Check your hardrive cables carefully to be sure one isn't loose. If your drive still won't complete a format, then it probably is bad and needs replacing. Also try your ram one stick at a time in case one is bad. And your ram frequency is independent of your cpu; check your board specs on it's website. It may work fine with 333 ram. If your ram is high latency (cheap no name quality) then I would suspect this is the problem. Any name brand ram (crucial, micron, corsair, samsung, kingston) should work fine.
