I already posted about this problem when it was in it's infancy asking for help, but I feel now that it would be easier to just start another topic rather than revising the symptoms on the old thread. I don't think this is breaking any rules, but if so, please let me know.
Okay, so I recently built my new computer (sig rig), and I seem to be having some troubles. Sometimes the computer will randomly "freeze", with no response to mouse or keystrokes for any amount of time, the only way to resolve it is it manually reset the system (power button). I used to think that it was processor related because it did this when under load, but now I have noticed that it does it randomly while in windows (word processing, internet surfing, etc). I do know, however, that it will freeze 100% of the time when I run Prime 95.
I have updated drivers and the bios, and the temps are alright (~27*c). I have called intel (for kicks) as well, and after 45 minutes on hold I was told "I have looked at the specs and your motherboard and processor appear to be compatible, so you shouldn't be having this problem, is there anything else I can help you with" Also, this has not been overclocked yet because the problem presented itself before I had a chance, and I don't want to oc an unstable system. Tonight I think I am going to take everything out, reseat all of my components and wipe my harddrives and reinstall the os, as a last resort. But if that doesn't work, I don't know what else I can do.
You can imagine how infinately frustrating this might be, so if anyone has any information as to what I could do to try to fix it or where to go for help if this is the wrong place, I would be more than grateful.
