Wierd problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently tried to switch my computer to a different case. After getting all the parts out, I remembered that I had micro ATX and the computer I was transferring to was ATX. So I turned around and put all the parts back into my old case. After all this I screwed up by putting the wrong power supply into my computer. I didn't realize this of course until my fifth try on starting up my computer.

Anyway, I put the right power supply in and started up my computer. I play WoW (World of Warcraft) and was pretty stressed after all this (spent at least 8 hours transferring parts and replacing etc.) and started up WoW. I noticed that WoW was taking an abnormally long time to load, and after 10min I started pulling out my hair with worry. The screen would either go black or just freeze. I can press the windows key, and the task bar will reappear, or unfreeze (depending on what happened). I can also right click on WoW and choose to close it, but the "Program isn't responding" error will pop up and WoW won't close. The only way I can get out of this is by restarting my computer.

So then I reinstalled WoW, and it was fine until I had to install the patches. Once I got to patch 1.12 (the most recent large patch), the computer froze again. I also noticed that the computer would freeze if I tried to start up Rise of Legends or try to join a game of BF2142.

I have run virus scans, bug doctor, AVG, defragged, and scandisked.

When I defragged the first time, WoW started up and I was able to play it. But whenever I would install a new game the computer would go back to hell.

So now I am stuck, defragging does not help, nothing helps, and I cannot play the games I want to play.

A friend told me you guys are very good at figuring out problems and I'm hoping you guys can figure out mine!

#1 Micro ATX motherboards will fit in regular ATX cases.

#2 By the sound of your problem... I think your motherboard is shot.

Really? I can play UT2K4 and F.E.A.R combat fine, and I'm writing this using the computer, it's just those games that cause it to freeze.

Well When doing such a dramatic hardware change such as Motherboard you generally have to reinstall Windows. This is because of driver and registry conflicts...Did you reinstall Windows ?

No, I didn't reinstall windows. However, I didn't *change* much. All I added was a DVD Drive (which I previously didn't have). To put it simply, I disassembled and reassembled my computer (with the intention of giving it new scenery, not for kicks). I did not take the CPU from the motherboard, and I was uber careful not to fry any of the parts.

My best bet would be to reinsert the graphics card. I doubt it would work though.

Some of your RAM could also have been zapped, since the games you mentioned uses quite alot of RAM compared to F.E.A.R. and UT2K4
