So I have just built a new rig(see sig) and am having major trouble with it.
I am having problems with the computer locking up. It does it at random times, and nothing really triggers it(as far as I can tell).
When I started trying to get windows installed the cd drive would spin up as if it was gong to read the disk but then just stop. I finally got it to work by opening and closing the drive just before pressing any key to boot from cd. Then when I finally got in to the installation process it was so slow. I installing tried from both a flash drive and dvd, so I don't think the dvd drive is the culprit. Now Windows hangs at random times. So I can't tell weather this is a hardware issue or what. Anyone else having these kind of problems?
also I was running my ram in the 1st and 3rd slots but in cpuz it would tell me it was running in single channel mode, and when I changed it to the first and second slots it said dual channel. I was under the impression that you always install ram in every other slot, but that's neither here nor there, because the problem exists both ways.
Another bit of info. If I am lucky enough to get into windows without it hanging, I try to run prime95 and it hangs instantly after I start the test(no overclocks or anything).
