GovernorG Posted March 13, 2013 Share Posted March 13, 2013 So lately on my 1 1/2 month old built PC my CPU usage is at or near 0%. The boot up time takes 5 to 7 minutes and when I need to have administrator power to select yes or no (which I do) for applications (user account control) it freezes my screen and the gray shade stays and the audio keeps working. I haven't been able to play most of my games or install updates. When the freezing occurs I press CTRL ALT DEL and the gray back light shade goes away and it doesn't process my answer as yes and slows my PC down to the point of frustration. I have been keeping up on the latest drivers and haven't been installing suspicious or harmful software. Even though I have admin power on my PC it still freezes and cannot figure out what is happening. I have bursts of normal power usages here and there but then it goes back to the slow, freezing, old problems again.I have seen some similar problems to mine on other sources but i'm not sure if I have the same solution. Help? After asking this on a different forum website I was told to see the instructions on installing 1866 vengeance on the manufactures website (here) and so far I cannot find it. He stated, "8GB corsair vengeance @ 1866, check the manufacturer website for instructions to using the 1866 ram, usually, you need to use one stick in A channel and one stick in B channel." I followed the instructions on how to install 2 sticks of memory on my motherboard users manual and everything was fine just until 3 days ago. So if it is the ram or maybe I have do go into the bios and work things out there can somebody help?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
