I just upgraded my Motherboard, CPU, RAM and HD and within 5 minutes of starting up my system locks.
I am wondering if it could be the wireless card causing a conflict, but I had the card installed with my old build with Vista 32 prior and never had an issue...however it is a new MB so maybe that could be the issue?
MB: Asus M4N78 PRO (Socket AM2+)
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 Black Edition 7750 (2.7 Ghz)
RAM: OCZ Vista Upgrade Edition Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
Hard Drive: Seagate Barricuda 500 GB SATA
Video Card: XFX GeForce 256 MB
Sound Card: OnBoard Sound
CD-ROM: HP DVD Writer (IDE, not SATA)
Wireless: Belkin F5D8001 Wireless card (N1) - http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage...oduct_Id=273535
Power Supply: Ultra SLI 500 Watt
OS: Windows Vista 32 Bit (tried 64 bit with same problems)
I am certain it is hardware related, but I wonder if it could be:
1. CPU overheating (unlikely, I have a CPU heatsink plus 3 fans blowing hot air out)
2. Wireless N1 Card (Locks up EVERYTIME while trying to connect to the internet via wireless)
