Have a rather annoying problem.
- Windows 7 x86
- Intel Quad Core Processor
- nVidia 9800GT
- 1TB Seagate HDD (brand new)
Right so when I turn on the computer. It'll load up fine, no problems, log in to my account and desktop loads fine. I might be able to run Firefox to browse the web. However within 3-4 minutes of Windows starting, it will freeze and I can only move the mouse, however clicking anything is useless, even dragging the mouse on the desktop doesn't work. Task Manager doesn't open either on Ctrl+Alt+Del, even on a Non-USB keyboard. The mouse is movable for 4-5 minutes before I get a Bluescreen of death and system restart.
On restart, BIOS hangs on "Memory runs at dual channel interleaved", and doesn't seem to detect the HDD. After 30 seconds it'll flash and give me a SYSTEM BOOT FAILURE PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I actually got out the system disk and popped it in, pressed Enter and it gave me the same message.
If I turn off the computer and leave it off for 10 minutes. I can boot successfully again, HDD detected, boot up to Windows again, log in, but the system freezes again. It did the same yesterday, however took longer to crash, so I did a Full system scan with Avast which turned up no viruses, trojans or infected files.
Honestly I really don't have any idea what it could be.
If any more info is needed, please ask I'll reply ASAP.
