In the last two weeks I've posted a few threads dealing with some specific issues. First my hard drives were too hot. Then it seemed my processor was overheating. I had a fan blowing on the hdd's until my new cooling units showed up, they are now installed the fans are all cleaned out and everything SHOULD be great. It doesn't seem that way however. Shortly after installing everything I started playing Oblivion, completed a couple of quests, saved and everything froze. Rebooted played a few more and it froze again. This time however the monitor seemed to shut down, but the system still seemed like it was working. By that I mean the monitor was off (amber LED on most, mine has a flashing green LED) but I could still hear the game from the speakers. The only thing I could do was power off. I went to bed but tried it again tonight and still get weirdness. First time I played I got really bad blocky video, that looked like a checker board. 2nd time I got the freeze and monitor shutdown thing. The hdd coolers are working and very well, my cpu doesn't seem like its having any problems. Could it be my semi new video card? I just got it in November. Is there any way to test that out or does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks once again!
