Hi, I've been having a problem where the computer will just lock up and freeze, it usually will happen during a ipod sync, but has also happened while converting video, and even when just web browsing. Also, when playing a video, the audio gets really choppy, but thje video plays fine.
I originally posted in the malware section, thinking it was a malware problem, but the moderator determined that it wasn't a malware issue, and suggested I try the hardware forums.
I ran Everest to check CPU and GPU temps, and they were in the normal range. I thought it might be the ram, but when I took the ram out of my other computer (which runs fine), and put it in this computer, the audio remained choppy, I didn't leave it in any longer to check for freezes. BTW, I'm running windows XP, SP3, a Biostar P4M80-M4 motherboard, with 2 gigs corsair XMS DDR 400. Thanks.
