Yeah, post your specs. You right click on my computer and click properties. If not then I know why.

Get SpeedFan and check your computer temps.

Ok, here's a screen shot of my specs because I couldn't copy it.
I'll get the thing that measures my computer temp in a bit.

Posted after 7 minutes 12 seconds:

Ok, well I found no trial for speedfan so I got something else. It's called "Hardware Monitor" and my computer core is 25 degrees C

Posted after 6 minutes 28 seconds:

I went on all of my programs at once and got some internet going and it still was at like 26 C

Lol, think again. I went to counter strike, on full settings(it still runs fine) and it jumped to a highest of 43 C.... then I went to post this and my computer froze.

In my experience, computer freezing has almost always been due to problems with APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller), but since yours is new, I'd guess that it's a problem with overheating.

Have you installed any new OSes, like XP over Vista?

Ok, whats over clocked anything? and It might be the aipc or what ever because this was a shelf model...

Posted after 14 minutes 48 seconds:

Ok I found a speedfan download. It says almost all of my temperatures are too low when I'm doing nothing.

Well if it's a shelf model, it's definitely NOT going to be APIC, unless of course you got a model that the designers majorly screwed up. In that case I'd start looking for a class-action lawsuit, haha. :lol:

But yeah, I'd think that it would be either overheating or just plain faulty parts.

I had a fairly new Dell that started freezing after just a few months. Their service was pretty good, they came to my house and fixed everything. But apparently it was just faulty hardware. :???:

I started playing counterstrike again and it was going perfectly fine, all of my temps were green cheek marks no red ups or blue downs. So I guess it's not overheating. I supose it is faulty hardware. Do I call the manufacturing company of my video card or what?

43 degrees celsius is uh... 109 degrees Fahrenheit, which is fairly high.

How the hell did you not find this? Use it, and set your computer fans up higher.
