new pc build keeps freezing up
Posted on 2006-04-03
I have built a pc
AMD 3400 retail boxed with own fan
400 watt psu
Windows 2000 pro
When i plug the pc in and turn it on, it connects to the network share, internet etc etc
it seems to function without error
But it just freezes up.
From what I have been told from a cold start it can last 25 minutes
but generally it lasts about 3 minutes
I'm guessing this is heat related, but I am using the heatsink and fan that came with the CPU in the retail box
and the amd 2800 machine I did last week works a treat ....
can anyone help
