those 2 are the only games i play so far.
-------------------------------------------------------
the specs of the power supply:

AC input : 115vac 7.0a 50/60hz 230vac 3.5a 50/60hz
+3.3v +5v +12v -5v -12v +5vsb

AC output : 28a 34a 14a .5a .8a 2a
450W max

the switch thing near the fan, it was on 115v instead of 230v.
---------------------------------------------------------

how do i work the memory test. i downloaded the iso file but i'm not sure where to put it =\\


gosh i'm such a noob T.T

no, www.lavalys.com go here and download everest home edition. and go to sensor section..just look around and you'll find it. and tell us your cpu temperatures.

and whoa wait...you changed the switch from 115 to 230? its supposed to be 115 in america, 230 is for europe.

To get memtest to work do the following.

1. Downloads memtest from here. You wan the one labeled " Download - Memtest86 v3.2 ISO image (zip)"

2. Unzip the file, and burn the ISO using your favorite ISO burning program. (see steps a1-a9 if you don't know how to do this.

3.Put the disk into the CD drive and reboot the computer.

4. Either the CD will run or you may need to set your bios to boot from the CD drive before windows. (If you have to change the bios the setting can usually be found in the "Boot" section or the "Advanced BIOS Features" section)

5. After your computer boots off of the CD memtest will start running all of its test in sequence. (You may want to run just test 8 first as this is the one that most often errors in my option.)



A. If you don't have a ISO burning program or don’t know how to use one. Here are instructions for doing it with deepburner a free CD burning utility.

1a. Downloads DeepBurner from here. you want the file labeled "DeepBurner Free 1.7".

2a. Install the program by running the file and following the instructions in the program.

3a. Go to where you put the memtest file and extract the ISO from the zip file.

4a. Insert a blank CD into the drive.

5a. Start Deepburner and select "Burn ISO image" from the list.

6a. It may at this point test the drives writing speeds, if so wait until it's finished.

7a. In the window it loaded click on the button labeled "..." in the image file section on the window.

8a. Open the folder where you extracted the ISO, select the ISO and click on "Open".

9a. Now click on the "Burn ISO" button and wait for the disk to finish burning.

Welcome to the forums Young. Ok first thing I see is your PSU. If eckostar is the name of the PSU that the repair place gave you please for the love of god and all that is sacred in OCing replace it. I had a 450 watt eckostar that came with my case when I bought it. I wish i had a camera to show you pics of what it looks like now. Needless to say that the rails meaning the +12v,-12v, +5v and -5v are nowhere near stable enough to run a mid end much less high end rig. The 3.3v rail im not sure how stable it is. I never even got to overclock my rig before the PSU burnt and I mean burnt like toast. So then I went with a enermax 420 watt PSU and things have been grand ever since. Im not saying that your PSU will fry like mine did but I really wouldn't leave it to chance. Then I would call the repair shop that put the PSU in and give them a very thorough talking to about using inferior products and gouging the price by hiking up the hourly rate of the tech. Hope that helps partner. I would also advice finding a different PSU and just seeing. Also these people on here taught me everything I know about building comps so if you need to replace parts in your comp there are many people who could even show you pics of how to install hardware so save yourself some money and look here for help with installing new hardware. That $90 dollars just for installing a PSU could have gone to getting a better PSU to hold you over till you get one you want.

Wow, I have the same problem, chingu...

And I as well have a 2.8 GHz P4, and mine also freezes often when I play counter strike, as well as freezing when I do nothing. I figured it was some problem that was specific to my PC, but maybe there is a bug in something we have... idk

Another thing, when you reboot your PC, does it power on, but nothing happens? no BIOS booting, no windows, and you have to unplug it completely and plug it back in to reset it and then it will usually boot up? Because that is what happens to me sometimes in addition to the freezing.

It doesn't happen overly often, but it does happen occasionally.

ok so. i ran the memory test( thanks to TDA ) and nothing happened. I did not have any fail. i had 5 in pass.

ok so..

it's not because of memory..

then i'm guessing that the solution has come one step closer.

what should i try to do next? somebody got on idea?
=)

this formus OWNS! overclock.net all the way (then comes newegg.com haha cuz it's so cheap there!)

I have a computer with very similar specs to yours. I also had the same problem with my computer regualarly freezing. After taking my computer back to my manufacturer they told me that the CPU had been overheating and was faulty.
I was issued with a new one by intel and the problem no longer exists.

My advice
Sent it back too your manufacturer so they can send the CPU to intel.
