I decided to save some money and gain some knowledge by building my first ever PC. After successfully completing it and turning it on it worked fine for a couple of months but now I have a problem.
At first, my audio gets choppy and slow, almost instantly, my video lags, then my keyboard and mouse stop responding, then my PC goes into total lockdown and freezes, and I usually have to hit the power button and wait 30 mins because if I hit the reset button it boots up and shortly does the same thing.
This happens usually while I'm playing video games and even when I'm simply watching a YouTube video. I'm a little worried that everytime this happens I'm damaging my pc it has happened around 50+ times around a couple months.
Here are my specs:
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
AMD FX-8150 21 °C
8.00 GB Dual-Channel Ballistix DDR3 @ 800MHz (9-9-9-24)
BIOSTAR Group TA970XE (CPU 1) 26 °C
DELL ST2220L (1920x1080 60Hz)
HP vs17 (1920x1080 60Hz)
1024MB GeForce GTX 550 Ti (EVGA) 44 °C
466GB Seagate ST500LM012 HN-M500MBB ATA Device (SATA) 30 °C
186GB Seagate ST3200827AS ATA Device (SATA) 34 °C
1.00GB NULL (NULL)
TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-222BB ATA Device
ASUS Xonar DS Audio Device
Diablotek EVO Mid-Tower ATX
Hopefully someone can help. Thanks.
