My issue - We put this system together around mid december of 06 and had been running pretty good until the end of January or so. The damned thing wont let you shut it down. You have to hold the power button in. I had to turn the screen save mode off because when trying to click the icon to show the desktop, it would just freeze.
I have a limited knowledge and with that limited knowledge I swapped hard drives to an older model of what I displayed above and reformatted it, updated all drivers and window patches etc. I am having the same exact problem and now my daughter is w/o a computer
Although no one has any proof that it is a MB issue, people keep saying that is what it is. I have had one other person say it is a windows issue with one of the updates probably got corrupted???
I have no idea. I bought all of the hardware off of New Egg and all is retail. I like sex, need to get my wifes system back up to full specs. Thanks!
