alright well first off... one weird thing is.. when u first turn on the computer it almost seems like it has trouble posting. Sometimes it will start... no beep and turn off. So i turn it back on.. some times it posts sometimes it dies.. this can go on 3,4,5 times before it posts... after it posts its fine. Another problem is i get random crashes all the freaking time.. im pretty sure its not video becuase its given me no indication that it is. But it seems to be when ever it tries to play sounds.. not certin sounds.. but just sounds.. I contacted creative because when it crashed a few times it would say emu10k1m.sys was causeing the error, and thats a sound driver.. the woman said well just update ur sound drivers.. well i did.. and suprise didnt work. Now when it restarts the error just says " driver related ". Ive checked my event log to see if i can gain any information from that and there are a few things i noticed such as i looked for repeated errors and i kept getting an IPSEC error. I figured that was not the problem and to look elsewhere. The only things i havnt done just becase im a lazy bum is update the bios beucase the bios i had was relitivly new and didnt think that would help.. i havnt reset the cmos or tried new memory. If u think that may help then ill look into it. Well any suggests would help. thanks alot
