|My computer is doing only audio-visual work which consists of playing MPEG2 files (long ones) out to a video projector. |
Problem is that the computer sometimes eezes during a session. Most times this is after about an hour. The vision locks on the last moving frame and the sound goes dih-dih-dih-dih-dih-dih-dih-dih- -ad infinitum.
The computer does not respond to any keyboard input and sometimes won't reboot - it well and truly "hangs".
Sometimes the only way to reboot is to power off the unit on the rear power switch and then back on.
After disabling the on-board soundchip and installing a separate sound card about 3 weeks ago it seemed to behave but now has started doing it again.
The video card is a Nvidea Ge Force 7300GT-TDH with 256mB DDR2 memory.
Processor is an AMD Triple-Core Phenom at 3.1gHz.
Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-M770-DS3.
Memory 2gB 800ns DDR2
Power supply 450W
Running XP-Pro SP3. Using Media Player Classic for replays.
No other programs are running nor is there a internet connection on this computer although it is on a LAN with two other comps.
Can anyone suggest what can be done to gaurantee freeze-free operation.
More info can be supplied if needed.
