3 Bad things are happening to my computer...
1. My computer is rebooting (COLD with no shut down sequence) at random.
2. It will be just fine then BAM! My network connection icon flutters on and off and on and off again like the wings of a ladybug...
3. When #2 happens- I loose controll of my whole system it gets so laggy. I can make it stop trying to automatically connect to the internet, but that doesn't stop the network connection from thinking im unplugging it every 2 seconds.
If I were to answer my own post 3rd person I'd say "Your computer is probably overheating" for number 1. I dont think its that because I'm using watercooling and I'm actually underclocking my CPU because I have too with this cheap motherboard.
THen its your cheap motherboard- Well it could be, but its hard to tell, since it IS random. Its a PC chips motherboard and I can't get it to recognize my duron 1800. The FSB on this thing won't go up to or past 133 Megahertz. Is this chip supposed to be 133 by default? If so why would underclocking it at 120 or 100 be soo bad?
2 and 3 I have no Idea what is going on other than that I'm pretty [bleep] shure its not my ISP making this happen.
NOTE: my system seems to be 99% clean of viruses and spyware. I say 99% becouse I still have a few ? mark programs that seem to find their way to my 'start' up list. They are unchecked of course. Registry Mechanic says 0 errors, Registry fix says 0 errors. Spyware doctor says nothings wrong. Avast says my system is clean. I had to quaranteen a file called Up2dat5.exe using the program 'System Task Manager,' since non of the other programs could get rid of it.
Please give me some Ideas- people!!!!!
