I am having the weirdest problem EVER. The first time i boot my computer every day it freezes. No cntl/alt/dlt, no nothing. just insta freeze. Computer is still running i just cant access it. I am no wiz but I did build this computer a while ago and think it might be windows related but not sure.
I have a gigabyte 7vkmp mobo, 1G ddr mem, athlon 1.2 G cpu, fx5200 vid card and a modem card. I have upgraded all drivers for vid card, even changed vid card. I have changed mobo, hard drive, cpu, upgraded/downgraded ram. Still having vid freezes. I have repaired/reinstalled WIN 2000 ( have full retail copy ). I have changed out power supplies twice.
I guess i am at my wits end. I am thinking of throwing my computer in my fish tank.
First i might try to wipe drive my second hard drive and do a complete fresh install to include upgraded drivers for Mobo and FX 5200.
When i changed out my cpu to a new 1.2 G thunderbird from my old 1.4 Athlon it seemed to go away for a while but no go. I do have freezes during games every once in a while also, but usually after the first freeze of the day, i re-boot, everything runs fine.
any help would be God like at this point. I REALLY hate re-installing everything yet again if its not gonna help.
Thanks In Advance
