My computer is slow to open applications. Explorer, quicken, defrag, avg, scanners etc. When in explorer on the internet I get " Sorry but explorer must close" or looking at you \tube or other video site I get flash 10ocx errors.

Sporadically, the unit freezes. the lights are on the front, but no display, the fans are not running. Have to push and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then restart it.

Sometimes, When I click on a program, or icon, or button the Pc while shutdown.

Recently I had to replace the power supply.

Any ideas

Thanks for the material. Nothing is jumping out at me, but I am going through it.

Question: Some of the voltages are off. I think it may be a problem. I am using Speedfan to see them.

Core:1.68
3.3 is 3.2v
5 is 4.92
12 is 11.61
-12 is .88
-5 is 1.94v
+5vsb is 5.46
vbat is 2.90

Is that right on the -5 and -12

My powersupply wnet out a few weeks back. Repplaced it with a coolmax 600w

Thanks

I've never (13 years) ever checked the voltages of any system I've owned.

If the motherboard appears to be doing the job...I can live with that.

I don't overclock...

If I wanted to check such, I would just go right to the BIOS and not trust any installed utility. I remember the Motherboard Monitor days, where the data that came forth depended upon the motherboard, what was in the MM databank, whether sensors were properly working, etc.
