|ok, I'll try and be as clear as I can.|
Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 3.2 ghz
Ram: (brand new) 16 Gb corsair 1600mhz ddr3
Hard drive: (<6months old) WD caviar black, 500 Gb, can link if needed)
Motherboard: (Brand new) asus m4a89 GDT Pro/usb3
Graphics: ATI radeon HD 6600 1gb (<6months old)
on-board graphics disabled via asus-provided 'jumper' chip.
Power supply: 550 watt LSP Ultra
The Problem: (before and after replacing the motherboard, and ram,)
Computer freezes up/stutters permanently until reboot, then works fine until shut down then reboot... time to time anyway.
I believe it all started when i upgraded from Catalyst control center 11.11 to 11.12, and it all went to hell, i recorded it...
I thought it was the motherboard, so i told asus and they sent me a new one, reinstalled the OS and same s--- is happening. I downloaded 'furmark' tool and it did a gpu test of my graphics card at 99% and it passed with flying colors. so i highly doubt its my graphics card... I used a volt meter on my PSU and every lead is putting out the correct voltage and the computer is plugged in to a battery backup unit that regulates the input voltage to the PSU as well and that is working just fine, i have plenty of cooling in the case, and nothing is over heating.
I have norton 360, and have run registry cleanup, disk check, defrag, and man full system scans with up-to-date definitions, I have monitors on the ram, graphics and cpu temps, and they are all fine. sometimes when the system freezes like in the video it doesnt clock the processors at all, and just makes that wierd sound and refuses to respond normally.... I'm at my whit's end.
