Screen freezes in middle of games? :/ - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Alright, had this issues occuring in my sigrig about a month back and it is a possible culprit.

do you have another HDD or a nice large fash drive? ( can install windows onto a flashdrive with appropriate formatting for temporary if need be )

my hdd was actually causing my system to not even post.

physical disk drives are getting pretty cheap too so no real cause for alarm.

also in my case, i was able to purchase a new PCB for the failed drive for $8. This got my old drive back up and running so i could get all my por.... files off of it.

No I don't. There was an issue with this drive (the hdd was one of the parts I salvaged from my old PC) where the drive wouldn't even boot properly. It would bsod right when it would show the windows splashscreen. The remedy (I thought..) was just wiping the drive with the windows installation disk.

Due to this, I'm hoping its just a hard drive failure that's gradually destroying the drive. After I'm awake enough to drive I'll drop by bestbuy and grab a new hdd and see how that goes I guess.

It sounds to me that this is going to work out well. My dead drive was 80GB, so that kind of helps you know its been around for a while.

Okay..

So I've bought a new hard drive, and I'm still freezing...

This time around, I've had the task manager up, so I can see the CPU performance. I thought maybe I was freezing when it hit 100%, and that there was something wrong with the cpu, but in the two times i've froze in the last hour and a half, I've been below 62% CPU Usage.

I'm really getting discouraged over here, just went out and bought the HDD thinking it would remedy the problem, and to no avail. If anyone has any idea what's wrong, please don't hesitate to ask a question or anything.. I'm running low on hope now :/

If nobody knows any solution, can I get a point into a direction of somewhere or site that would?

Thank you.
