random lockups :(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
my pc keeps locking up in windows for no reason that i can detect. the weird thing is, they seem to come at random, no real sign, and will happen 2 minutes after bootup or 6 hours after one. the other thing i have noticed is that it is more likely to lock up if i simply leave my pc sit and idle than if i were to do something such as play music or browse the web! im so confused! i have my pc back at stock settings and everything and it still locks up randomly. it seems as if i run a registry cleaner, it becomes more stable for a couple hours, then just starts up its crashing spree again. im gonna hurry up and post this now incase it happens again.

anybody ever have this problem? is my only choice to format windows.. again?

thanks.

How are your temperatures and voltages? Anything unusual? Might be your PSU acting up (not surprisingly, since it's an Ultra)
