Strange I"m not sure why it is, I'm starting to get nervous that if it keeps happening it will damage my system. I'll either be using Wow.exe program or Ventrilo most of the time when it happens, but its happened without using them as well. When all of a sudden my whole system freezes upCant move mouse
Cant hit any key to bring up task manager
cant escape out of the current situation.
Only option is to reset the unit.

When I do so, and while my bios are loading I get a warning saying to "re-setting Frequency or Voltage to CMOS and Memory" whatever that means, I went into my bios, I didn't see anything for frequency to check, but I did put the voltages up (all were in the green) to see if that would help, but still have the issue, what should I be checking for?


Ran AVG and Mal-ware Bites in Safe Mode, and found nothing.

Sounds like you are experiencing a common problem known to most computer users.

Its time to inspect the internal workings of your computer for dust accumulation.

I suggest you check all cooling fans and any heat sinks for dust built up inside the computer.

Overheating is a common reason for system freeze ups, things get to hot and shut down or seize up.

Please check this situation out before attempting any further fixes.

Kind regards.

To add a little. Is it correct you run SLI? (nForce 750i SLI) Crates lots of heat. I didn't notice what power supply you have. If you are using SLI you will need the proper power supply. IMHO using a quality power supply that has lots more than required works best.
