Computer beeps and then freezes

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Heey,

About a year back i bought a few new parts for my Computer (Dell Dimension 5100) The parts I bought were :
- Zalman PSU (600 W) and
- GeForce 9800 Gt 1024 MB videocard

I installed them into my computer and everything was fine updated the software and latest drivers.. No problem at all.

Then about 3-4 months back my computer just started freezing in the middle of a game. Everytime I'd click the mouse the computer would beep 2 seconds later. (No apperent pattern beeps seemingly related to mouse clicking).

Anyway I tried reformated (if that's the correct term) my whole computer setting everything back to normal standards (the standards you had when you got the computer). Yet the freezing still happend. (Standard Dell 5100 Dimension).

I got a new Motherboard and the guy threw in a new CPU and everything seemed fine I got it back a week later. However I wanted to play games again and so I did.. and yet again after about 20-30 minutes it froze again, bleeping as I clicked. (beeping when i clicked like it wanted to preform the action but couldn't)

The problem seems to be getting worse because now it starts freezing at random periods (seemingly more frequent) even when i'm only surfing the net.

(TEMPS ARE FINE)

Specs:
Motherboard old: Dell Dimension 5100
Current Motherboard: Asus P5K
CPU Type: DualCore Intel Pentium E2180, 2000 MHz (10 x 200)
PSU: Zalman ZM -600 - Hp
Videocard: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (1024 MB)
Soundcard: Creative EMU10K2 Audigy Audio Processor
Soundcard: Realtek ALC883 @ Intel 82801IB ICH9 - High Definition Audio Controller [A-2]
Hard Drive: Maxtor 6L160M0 (160 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA)
Optische Station PHILIPS DVD+-RW DVD8701 (DVD+R9:8x, DVD+RW:16x/8x, DVD-RW:16x/6x, DVD-ROM:16x, CD:48x/32x/48x DVD+RW/DVD-RW)
OS: Windows xp

Help is much appreciated!
Sincerely,

Mitch Hoogstraten

EDIT NEW INFORMATION!!
Alright I have some new information on the case! It just hanged again but now I decided to let it hang for a while and then I got a "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH" saying:

Nv4_disp (Meaning Nvidia_display probably)
That it was in an infinite loop and it was starting it's physically memory dump.
It also said it is often the result of a "non-proper working device" or that drivers aren't installed right.


NEW INFORMATION:

new important information my computer just went to the freezing beeping state again and i opened the taskmanager checked the 2nd page "Processes" and saw my CPU-usage was shooting up from like the regular 5-10% all the way upto 80% with 2 programs using that much (JAVA and Firefox). I first closed off Firefox CPU-useage went back to normal and about half a minute later the computer went back into the freezing state so i re-opened task manager (took like 5 minutes to open xD) and closed off JAVA now it hasn't froze in 5 minutes.

Hope this information helps because it seems like a vital clue to me

ADVANCE STARTUP OPTIONS (including safe mode) WINDOWS 7

You can perform Startup Repair to resolve most startup issues. Restart your computer tapping on the F8 key until you reach the Advanced Boot Options menu and select Startup Repair. If that does not work, reboot the computer to the Advanced Boot Options menu again and this time select Disable automatic restart at system failure, restart the computer and report the full error message received. Let us know if this helps.

or
EVENT VIEWER

How to get to your event viewer, Start> type in "event" and select the event viewer from the list.

Post the BSOD's if any with the first set of numbers

Also clean all the card edges and be sure no dust is in the slots either.

Heey the Startup Repair didn't worked tried it a couple of times, as for the "Disable automatic restart at system failure" I'll have a go at that now.

As for the BSOD I haven't had it for a while because it only eventually shows up once I keep it on for a longer period of time or if I spam click

*EDIT*
By the way i went to task manager right-clicked the tasks that were hogging all my CPU and changed their affinity to CPU 0 instead of CPU 0 and CPU 1 and now its only hogging upto a maximum of 50% which doesn't make it hang atm

It went as followed:

I bought a new graphics card Nvidia POV 9800 Gt
and a new Power supply Zalman ZM 600W

correctly mounted them in did everything the way i was suppose to, installed all the driver's updates and as far as I can remember that's when the problems started I then cleaned the entire system, also tried deleting old drivers reinstalling new ones but the problem persisted.

Then due some error in a USB port my motherboard died (Irrelevant for this problem). Got a new motherboard but it still had the problem, then it went away for like 2-3months and it's been back for a while again

Here's the BSOD



A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.
Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates

nv4_disp
Beginning dumb of physical memory.

what chipset you using? the fualt my lay with the chipset, dodgy drivers, or getting very hot. try running a gpu intensive application with your onboard graphics and see if it blue screens then that might be your issue, try repasting your chipset.

Don't know too much about computers but I don't think it's my chipset, thanks for the suggestion though :]
