My computer has begun freezing radomly in recent days, with the computer screen looking more like a kaliedoscope. The motherboard was professionally replaced about 45 days ago after an electrical storm. Being that the display goes awry upon freezing, I updated the driver for my video card so it is current. The only thing I see is that in the event view...the same error keeps appearing..."The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load; ftsata2".
Also, the computer will enter sleep mode and cannot get out of it. I have to manually turn off the computer to get it back on.
Lastly, when I turn the computer back on after a hard kill, I sometimes get a loud fan and nothing else, which is how the motherboard episode started 45 days ago. I then kill the power at the power supply, wait 20 seconds, and turn it back on and things seem normal...with the exception of the random, yet constant freezing. Sorry for the long winded post, but I am trying to give as much background as possible. I am running on Windows XP SP3. A thank you to anyone who can help!
