Ten seconds lock ups.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Having some trouble. My computer keeps locking up for about ten seconds or so and then I get a error tone. mad.gif Been going on for about a month or so. Happens whether I'm in a game or not. I could be just web surfing and bang, mouse stops and I have to wait the ten seconds and then the error tone.

Any thoughts on this will be much appreciated.
Thanks

Are you getting a long beep? several short beeps? try re-seating your ram and cpu (use fresh paste). If still happening try one ram stick at a time in different slots.

When the freezing occurs, do you hear any type of Clicking from the system when it starts being responsive again?

Went and updated my bio's and am on day three without a lock up. Just did a update at the beginning of the year but they had two more since then. Asus easy bio update rocks.
