Weell, I built this computer for a friend, and after some problems with jumpers and stuff being recognized, I gave it to him, thinking it'd be perfectly fine. Then, I get news that his games are freezing on him for no particular reason, we thought it might have been overheating or something, so I told him to open up the case, put a fan there to cool it off a bit. We tried it, the temp lowered a few degrees, but things still froze on us. We thought it might be drivers, we switched those around a bit, and it still won't work. Then maybe it was Directx, but the diagnostics turned up nothing funny. We tried playing a DVD, and that, too, froze up on us after a few minutes.
The games might run for a few minutes, but then it freezes, forcing a
manual reboot. This is confusing and frustrating me...
Its an AMD XP 1800+, 2700 DDR Crucial Ram, Audigy, Gainward Golden Sample Ti4200 128mb and its the Gigabyte GA-7rvxp.
I'm running out of ideas as to how to fix this proble, any help is appreciated!
