Right guys, been having a problem with my system for some time now. And now I finally think I have got to the bottom of it.
System tends to freeze when system is under load. Too many usb devices attached or too many programs running. Read my other post regarding it http://www.computerforums.org/showth...ult&highlight=
What I have done so far:
Checked motherboard with an identical model - no fault
ram - no fault
psu - no fault
processor - no fault
ide leads - no faults
so now that leaves two things - psu lead and hdd. I highly doubt the psu lead is at fault, so really were looking at the hdd. One thing I found really odd was that the hdd was more stable with extra cooling, however the hdd is within manufacturers temperature spec.
So what do I do now? I have many important connection and gds programs running on this system and I cannot afford to reformat. Is it possible to clone the hdd and have the cloned hdd replace the original?
