I cleaned the room in the basement yesterday... it was some hardcore cleaning and I also vacuumed up my computer (outside and inside to rid the dust). However, after everything was plugged in, I found that it would freeze after an amount of time (not just normal, but safe mode also... kind of).
Here's my rig:
DFI Lanparty SLi-dr Motherboard
4 gigs of OCZ ram (3200... or something)
AMD x2 4400 (2.2ghz)
2 Hard drives, each 150 Gb
nVidia Geforce 7800GTX
... can't remember the audio card..
I'm running Windows XP Professional... I think it's SP1.
My computer worked fine before I cleaned it... I'm worried that vacuuming the inside might have damaged the hardware but I'm not sure. I inspected it and I don't see any damage to the motherboard, gpu, ram, etc... I'm at a loss on this one.
When I boot into safemode it lists all the system processes or... something like that. At the end (it stalls a little, or it's just "loading") it ends up rebooting and asks the same question (choose what mode you want to boot in...:)
I forgot to add that it freezes after an amount of TIME (not just after you boot into the desktop).
If I leave the computer at the log-in screen, it could still freeze there. Or, I could quickly type in my password and log-in, and it would freeze a few seconds after I login, normally while startup applications are loading (I don't have that many).
