Ok, here's the deal. Running all the newest updates for windows, but my issue goes back to about 2 years ago... My compy shuts off. Well, not exactly, it freezes with the monitor stuck on a black screen, not off, but black. Any sounds that were going on at the moment of shut down get put on a constant repeat until rebooted. My lcd screen on my case says that the hardrive is no longer spinning. What i have is Athlon xp 1900, 120gb hd, 80gb hd, 756mb ram, GeForce 6800 GT, and 500w power supply. I know it's old and will be replaced next week, but still I wouldn't mind having it work right. I upgraded the Powersupply from 350w to 500w thinking it was the video card not getting enough juice. No difference. I added the 80gb HD and ran with that alone for a while and still nothing different. I don't know what to do with this bastard... My monitor says it's at H: 48.6KHz V: 60.3Hz. Refresh rate is 60hz. Resolution is 1024x768. The only time this happens is when I play games. Nothing else. And it only happens during World of Warcraft, Warcraft 3's, Tron 2.0, and if I recall Halflife 2*but not certain*. ANY tips would be great. Like I said, I'm cpu short of a new compy so this is just the back up. Athlon 64 3700, DFI Lan Party MB, 1 gb ram, 2 80gb hd's, and another 6800 gt.
