New Build - Windows Freezing Shortly After Loading

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just built my new system (below) and it was running fine for a week--a bit warm, but fine. Just today (actually right as I was trying to post here) the following began happening: Mouse pointer would start to get jerky, then the "busy" cursor would start to appear, and shortly after Windows becomes totally non-responsive and requires a hard reboot via the reset button. This now happens consistently within a few minutes of Windows loading.

Prior to this morning, I could go through 5 passes of IBT without a hitch (other than relatively high temps) and had played about 15 hours of The Witcher 2 on high settings. Now I can't even load my home page . Does anyone have any idea what is going on (I suspect my SSD, but only because I can't think of anything else it might be)?

System is:

Lian Li PC-V354
Asus P8P67-M Pro
i5 2500k @3.3ghz
Noctua NH-U9B SE Cooler
8 MB ripjaws ram @1600mghz
MSI GTX 570 twin Frozr III
Intel 510 120GB SSD
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HD
Corsair HX 850W
Asus DVD Player
Windows Home Premium 64 Bit

Thanks for any help...I'm about to throw my rig out the freaking window!

Installed windows and all drivers on my "storage" drive (the Spinpoint F3) and so far no problems. My SSD install still freezes within one to two minutes after windows has loaded and I do anything (and after about 15 seconds of virus scanning). I ran a full virus scan on the Spinpoint install just to see and it finished without a problem.

Should I consider this fairly good proof that my problems are related to my SSD? If so, is there anything I should try before I RMA it?

Also, am I even posting this in the right forum?

Thanks!

Is this thing on? *taps microphone*

Reinstalled windows on my SSD drive and now it's running fine too. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have caused the problems posted above...???
