I'm also not a techy person, so all the very detailed things hardware wise, I would appreciate to put in more simple terms :/
I've been experiencing some really bad freezes randomly whether I'm on my desktop, surfing the web, doing homework, or playing games but I'm not sure what it is. I had a new video card put in about a month ago and everything worked great for about 4 days, then the freezes started. I thought it was the card but I was told the card isn't the issue. I've been told it could be hardware not compatible with each other, memory issues, power supply problems, motherboard issues, etc.
I'm also reading a bunch of different things that it could be but I just want to know exactly what I could do that can pinpoint what the issue is. The rig was given to me 2 years ago after my father passed away, so I'm not def. what's all in it. It's a built up tower, with a Skorpio shell on it.
I've ran tests and nothing is showing any issues.
The video card checks out, the power supply is a Corsair CX600 and was bought less than 6 months ago, I have 4 GB of memory but not sure how to take them out to see if it's 1 of the sticks or both even at all and I don't want to make anymore issues just ripping them out and messing up something. As far as the MoBo, I'm not sure what it is.
That's about everything I can crack off atm. Not too sure what else to do than to ask other professionals. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys
