I've recently built my first computer system and when it works, it works great. It's supposed to be for light gaming until I can afford a decent graphics card. I've run into a few problems however. - random BSODs while performing some task - game will randomly crash to desktop I had the following problems prior to reinstalling Windows. I am not sure if they have gone away with the reinstall: - graphical glitch while watching youtube, computer will freeze and restart. - installers of any sort will fail to complete. They will encounter some error and crash. - Windows Update will successfully download software, but will run into some error while installing (I had the hunch that with every update I ran, the more frequent system errors occurred) - graphical glitch in game accompanied by audio glitch. Eventual game crash. - many random BSODs I have checked to see that all cords and extensions are firmly in place. I have updated graphics and motherboard components using the cd that came with it as well as from the manufacturer's website. I have run a test on the harddrive. I have run memtest for 10 hours. I have reinstalled windows twice. Anyone able to deduce what the issue is for me? Specs: OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Motherboard: ECS A960M-M2 CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3000 RAM: Patriot Memory DDR3 (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz Hard Drive: IDE 250GB PSU: Rosewill 500W ATX12V Other Notable Details: - Prior to buying, I confirmed that the ram I wanted to use was compatible with the motherboard. The cpu as well. However, I read something about the cpu I'm using preferring 1333 MHz RAM? - I am using an HDMI cable to channel video and audio to an HDTV serving as a monitor. Quality is great, but I read on forums that the HDMI connection might be a problem?
