hello. I have a very annoying problem with my OS. My computer freezes within minutes of turning on the computer. It usually happens whenever I attempt to web browse or install something. Within seconds after attempting to do anything, the computer locks up and I am forced to manually turn off the computer. I reset my CMOS, switched PSU (currently i have a 420 watt), ran memtest86 on my ram (no problems found), and reformatted my computer. I can not think of any possible solutions to this problem. Also, it cannot be an overheating issue... the comp freezes while the case is open or closed.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
