Ive had my PC for a while now, its a gaming pc and i got it from cyberpower. Specs: MSI K9N Neo mobo, AMD A64X2 +4200, 1gb of OCZ platinum ram (getting another 2 tomorrow) Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254), 250gb 7200rpm HD, HIS 3870xt 500w PSU and i have all the latest drivers, updates, whatever. Now ive had this problem for the past few months, the computer starts up and at the startup screen the mobo gives off a few clicks and the one big one with "Drive Error F1 to Resume" and then i press F1 and it carries on, everythings fine, games run well, great even but after hours, the computer will just restart itself and go back to the startup screen, at first this wasnt a problem, it would only be after being on for 6 hours+ and if i was playing a demanding game, but recently its been getting worse, with times varying from 10 minutes to 10 hours and even when the computer isnt doing anything, i havent got a clue what it is, but i have sort of an idea. A month or two ago i decided i would try to overclock my processor and i did, but with next to no result, then after a while i tried again, but the computer would'nt startup, so i decided to reset the cmos, which worked, but thats when the drive error thing started popping up and thats when the restarts started, can anyone help? Ive attached a dxdiag file.
