So, I play World of Warcraft and ever since last Tuesday I've been getting some problems with my computer. First it disconnected me 3 times from the internet whilst playing WoW, then later that day the screen went black and obviously froze, I had to manually restart the computer, this happened about 4-5 more times. The next day I unsintalled and tried reinstalling WoW, thinking that might make things better, it didn't, I still got freezing errors, sometimes it'd just show the picture frozen or it would completely turn off my monitor.
anyway, I took it to geeksquad, I have warranty on it, and they diagnosed it, they said the problem was my bios, had to pay for all that yadda yadda yadda, I came home thinking everything was fine and what happens? not even an hour of playing and it freezes up on me twice, at first i had too many addons installed, so I disabled all of them, didn't matter, joined a dungeon group, screen froze, and...happened 3 more times, I highly doubt it's my computer, but I'm not so sure now, anyway, I was wearing my headset during 2 of these freezes, and now I notice a noise, it's probably the WoW sound that got distorted by the freeze, but I don't know, any ideas? Oh and right now I've been on WoW for the past hour or two and it hasn't frozen up on me, I don't know if it's because I added -opengl or what. maybe lowering my settings? Not sure, anyway, anything I can do to help come up with a solution?
