Hy there,

i recently bought a new PC and i have a big problem with it ...

My Specs are :

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4
Kingmax 1 Gb DDR2 800mhz
Palit daytona 7900GS 256mb 256 bites
WD 250 GB SATA 2 HDD 16 mb Buffer
Creative Audigy SE
Logitech Z-5500 Digital

when i enter demanding applications or games ( ex. Black & White 2 , Overlord, Flatout 2, etc ) my PC just freezes up or the BSOD appears ... ( blue screen ) and the PC needs a reset after that :blink:

Sometimes even when i'm not doing anything demanding in the WINDOWS Xp SP2 the PC does the same thing :help:(( please help .. i Really need it :help:(

Also here is my health Check error from HD Tune ... i Don't know what it means ...
Thanks :whistling:

Someone more experienced, correct me if i'm wrong, but, in my experience, failing a test in HD Tune, usually indicates a terrible problem in your hard disk.
Is your computer still under warranty?

SMART Status is not the be all and end all of the condition of a hard drive, its nothing more than a best guess. On occasion it can be a false alarm.

In any case the attribute being flagged up is the Spin-Up Time - the avverage time of spindle spin up (from zero RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) to fully operational). Active SMART shows the raw value of this attribute in milliseconds or seconds.

If the machine is under warranty, then use it. Take it back and explain the scenario.
