First of all, I would like to intoduce myself here, as this is my first post. I am a 16 year old male from Pittsburgh, PA, US. My biggest intrests in life are gaming, and hardware, so I love places like this :cheesy:. Anyway, there is one problem that has been a source of irritation for me for a long time.
Whenever I am playing a game (Halo, Warcraft III, and EQ2 seem to be the games that cause it most), at any random time, the computer will enter a hard freeze. The image on te screen will freeze, and the strange thing is, as soon as it starts to freeze, I hear some static and screeching sounds from my headphones, and it continues until I reboot via the reset button. I have good coolers on my cpu and gpu, so heat is always around 45C, so it is not a problem. Here is my current config:
Mobo: ASUS A7V8X-X
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2 gig w/ ASUS StarIce cooler
GPU: NVIDIA Gefore 6600 w/ Thermaltake Extereme Giant III cooler
RAM: 2 gigs, DDR
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS Gamer
