LordFett Posted July 26, 2006 Share Posted July 26, 2006 I am running a homebrew PC on an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe mobo with an AMD 2700+ 2.17GHz CPU. Whenever I play WoW for more then about 10 minutes (sometimes I can make it about 20) or try and convert a .tivo file to a .mpeg or my daughter plays any of her games it locks up. I have to turn the power supply off then restart it.I am running WinXP (SP1, I don't have SP2 yet because I want to get this problem worked out before I register). The system started with 2x512k RAM, fearing this was the problem I removed one same problem. Removed the other, same thing. Took a 1gb stick from my other PC that works seamlessly same problem. The fan on my Vid card died so I thought it might be this as well. So I took out this card (MegaSpeed nVidia AGP) and replaced it with an older ATI PCI card, same problem.I've checked my event log and nothing is showing up there.Could an overheating CPU be causing this? I'm thinking about picking up a new CPU but socket As aren't few and far between these days. Any help would be great.http://lordfett.com/files/DxDiag.txtThis is a link to my dxdiag. It is a bit old, I can run a newer one tonight if it will help any.Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
