My Rig is Freezing a lot..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I did 3 things to my sig rig recently.

1. installed vista ultimate

2. installed a Coolermaster 500, 500W PSU

3. installed a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

now when im running my rig for a while it seems to just freeze. Not just slow down or become mildly unresponsive it just stops with no warning.

I only switched from a 525 W light little PSU to the 500W coolermaster.. there's almost no way I could have a underpowered PSU now right?

I also saw that when it stops working the HDD light goes solid, I think that maybe the disk may be damaged ill be running chkdsk in a few min.

maybe something is wrong with compatibility of vista but I don't think so.. most of the parts seem to work ok and asrock makes a lot of stuff with vista in mind..

any other recommendations?

Also I know this may not belong here but there's a few problems so I thought i'd put it here...

Try swapping out easy parts, like a hard drive with XP already on it, PSU, video card, or lookup new drivers for your chipset, video card, etc

Run memtest on it to make sure your RAM isn't faulty at all.
