    well, I'll have to see how i get it( partially that what determines what i get), probably ask a friend to get it from uk or the states, coz here, the prices are about the same.... and i dont think i'll be getting warranty that easily here..... :(

    Sounds like some issue with gfx card or the VGA/DVI cable from the card to monitor...

    Re: Building a new computer system and not sure where to start? Click Here! (9/4/09)

    Hi,

    I orginaly got help on page 2 of this thread and so far my system listed below with asus m3n72-d is working good. But since I went to windows 7 64 bit home edition it tends to freeze up from time to time for short times.

    I am thinking that if I go from 4gigs of memory to 8 that might help fix this situation. Am I going in the right direction? If so could you help me pick out some decent memory for this mother board that wont break the bank.

    thanks

    hey man, sorry i couldnt reply to this before.... 4 gigs should be sufficient for just about everything.... it sounds like a software issue....

    did you install windows 7 directly from the disk or did you upgrade? i recommend reformatting and getting everything setup before buying new RAM...

    also, id download the motherboard drivers from the Asus website for win 7 as they may be newer than the ones loaded onto the disk....

    if you need anything else, just post back

    Turned out to be my hard drive, it was dieing and I have since replaced it. Since then everything is running smooth as silk. I did add a hard drive fan cooler for the new Hard drive and the old one showed signs that it was running to hot.
