Machine hangs after a little beep
show user profile  GirishDJoshi
My other machine which is a amd 64bit dual core some 4 year old gfx card has started to hang now and then. Specially when I load Lightroom on it or Deepa plays games from bigfish.

I am facing this problem since 2 months or so.

Have tried,

changing the ram, hdd, cleaning everything, increasing the ram as well.

win 7 and 1 gb ram

For eg. I export 10 pics from LR, there is very small beep and the machine hangs.

If a certain component heats up, I am not able to detect it. Which software can I use to detect that. The last one I used showed all components to heating up to the max level. :/

Thanks in advance.

Look in the error log mate. It should tell you what the system beep was.

Right-click on COMPUTER in the start menu and choose Manage / Event viewer / System. Look for X ERROR entries.

are all fans active ?

if so you'll have to start swapping out stuff to see what is causing it
i'd start by replacing the rams (they are no longer that expensive)
also check your hdrives for errors
do this untill the crashing stops
i'm affraid it's the only way to be sure

Have you ruled out a software conflict? Try running a clean windows install and see if you have problems.

Possibly look at the errors that lead up to the crash/restart not just the very last one.. Probably a lot of technical crap for the most part but there might be something useful in there. I wouldn`t go throwing away cash on new ram at this point :/

Thanks guys.

- I have got a new hdd . .fresh installation of of win 7
- swapped couple of stuff to check the problem.
- I added in 2 gb ram to the existing ram, but haven't actually swapped it. I will do that and get back
to you.

Haven't understood much of the errors :P and their explanations.


Thanks.

Back in town.

Definitely not ram. I changed the ram and put in a new one. Still the same. As I said it happens only when I use LR and some games that Deepa plays.

LR majorly. When I access pictures, export them. After 1-2 pics it hangs.

Very seldom it has happened while I surf or work on some documents in word, etc.

The error window from above doesn't show any thing near about the time when the pc was restarted.

Could be either PSU or VideoCard by elimination - there are a range of free tools for stress testing both video card and video ram, might be worth running a couple of those..

If you can reproduce the problem might also be worth monitoring temps in some way ( again )..

The beep is usually a system monitor beep, which tells you that something is overheating and it is forcing itself off to prevent damage. If the beep is coming from the motherboard, it's probably the CPU, if it's coming from the video card, it's probably the GPU. Try removing the heatsink, cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol (not the drinking kind) and reapplying some new thermal paste (spread a very thin layer across the heatsink where it contacts the processor). I'm assuming the beep isn't coming from your speakers, right?
