SO for the last couple of weeks I have an issue with my computer freezing. I noticed my computer first freezing when I upgraded my case to a Antec 1200 case. I thought that this was possibly a psu issue so I went out and bought a $110 BFG 650 watt psu. However the issue continues. Every once in a while my computer will freeze while in my Vista hdd and same issue in my Xp hdd. So what is the deal? I have four hdd's connected ( 2 sata and 2 pata) my computer specs are:

Amd 6000+x2, 3 gig dd2 dual channel ram, 8800 gts, 650 watt psu, and antec 1200 case. My CPU doesn't seem to be over heating the only thing I can think of is that the cpu is twigging out? and I don't think four hdd's would cause the power issue?

2 places to check (in both OS's)
- Event Viewer Look for events in the System and the Application log files around the time of the freeze
- Task Manager...Processes tab Ensure you've selected the option to show processes from all users. Also, in the View menu, select, Select columns and place a checkmark in the I/O Reads and the I/O Other colums. Drag the borders of Task Manager out so you can view all the columns. Then wait for the freeze and see what image name is taking up the most CPU, Memory or I/O Reads or Other.

Thanks for your reply usasma what I ended up going was went to Fry's where I purchased a $100 warranty when I bought my original cpu and mobo and they replaced it with a AMD Phenom Tri-Core 2.3 ghz (overclocked to 2.56ghz) and a ASUS M3n-HT Deluxe mobo ( I love the mobo has AM3 capability) I am going to upgrade the processor soon. I haven't had any issues with freezing yet and the computer is running quite well now, like it had always haha.
