Rink Posted February 2, 2013 Share Posted February 2, 2013 Hi, I have recently assembled a new rig and I'm having a slight issue with the build. Upon installing new OS no problems occurred, however when I finally got onto my desktop and opened regular folders such as My Computer / Documents the machine started to act weird. It took me about a minute to just open my computer, when I tried to open the folder multiple times it froze completely saying that explorer.exe has stopped responding. When I tried to do anything at that point the machine locked up completely, I was not able to move my cursor and caps lock / num lock keys were not lighting up on the keyboard when pressed. I ran memtest for 3-4 hours with no problems, the strange issue is the fact that whenever I stick my RAM module to another slot on the motherboard, the BIOS gets corrupted and I am forced to go through the recovery process. Sometimes upon pressing the reset button, the system is not able to find my hard drive prompting me to insert appropriate boot device. If I shut down my pc at that point and turn it back on again it boots normally. My final issue are UNBELIEVABLY long loading times in some applications such as PS / GIMP (they're stuck on splash screen for 2-3 minutes with "not responding" status and then suddenly they unfreeze and continue loading everything in under 5 seconds). It happens in games as well. My computer specification: CPU: I5-2500k (stock speed) RAM: Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 4GB MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H (BIOS version F19g) GFX: AMD 6870 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500gb PSU: OCZ 700W StealthXStream II I'd like to mention that my HDD is from my older machine which I have used 8-9 months ago, then I have taken it out and recently I've decided to use it again. I'd appreciate any help or suggestion on what could possibly cause this issue. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
