I just custom built a brand new power gaming rig. When I play WoW, it randomly locks up everything. Everything freezes, even the sound. I can't move the mouse, nothing responds on the keyboard. When this happens, I have to manually reboot the PC. There is no blue screen, no error messages. I am only running WoW and Vent. Below are my specs

Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit
Intel Core 2Duo E6750 @2.66 GHz Driver Version:6.0.6000.16386
Two NVidia GeForce 8800 GTS - (SLI Not Enabled) Driver Version:7.5.11.6369
4.0 GB RAM
DirectX 10
Running at constant 86F or 30C

All other drivers for everything else is up to date. Any help or ideas?

Hi Trippan86, welcome to Geeks to Go!

I'm actually not extremely knowledgable in SLI, but I don't think you can use two graphics cards at the same time unless they are in SLI mode?

Try taking one out just to test anyway, it's possible one of them may be faulty.

Cheers :)

EDIT: First, though, have you applied that latest patches from the WoW website?

No not yet. I wanted to follow the step by step process from Blizzard first which i'm almost done going through to see if that works. So far no luck. If I make to to the end of their list with out fixing it then I will start taking out hardware. I'm really thinking it is a driver though as there really is no specific anything for Vista. Vista seems to be causing a ton of issues according to the research I have done.
