Computer hard locking pls help TIA
Hi I'm having some lock up problems and I have had it into 2 shops but it doesn't seem to lock when it's there. It locks at random times. I have taken every thing with it but the monitor. Here's what I have and have had done to it.
Newly installed on the system
AMD 3200 XP (400 MHz FSB) with older Volcano 9 heat sink and new OZ Thermal paste
Ultra 500W Power Supply
Maxtor 200GB SATA HD
And 2 case fans
I couldn't get my old copy of xp to install no matter what I tried. I tried the f6 install and I just wouldn't work. So I took it in to the first shop and got a new copy of xp with sp2 and they installed it and did all the updates. I take the computer home and notice my ATI control panel is not in the advance options tab and that the catalyst center won't launch. So I figure whatever and start surfing the web, then it just locks up. I start to parbreastion the drive and I get another lock up. So I run asus probe and so I can monitor voltage and cpu temps. Voltage seems fine but the +5 rating flops around a bit between 4.90 and 4.98. The Cpu temp is about 49-52'C and the mobo temp is about 28-30'C. Now have tons of air running in my case. So it not for the lack of fans
I took it into the 2nd shop and they had it for 3 days and couldn't make it lock up and they tested the hard drive and it was 100% fine they said. So I took in all my accessories and such to try to make it lock up there. Well I couldn't do it there. They suggested that the monitor was having trouble with my system and to check the year. So I did and it's April of 2000 manufacture date. I have never heard of a monitor doing this it possible? The shop owners our friends of mine and I'm sure not trying to sell me something. So I take the comp home run it for a day and it all goes well. The next day I'm using it and searching on the web it locks up again. So hear are a list of things that caused it to lock up.

The first shop also updated my bios form 1010 to 1013 could that have done it?

I'm out of ideas other than my Graphics card is flaky now for some reason is there anyway to monitor the chip temp on that card? Should I get a new heat sink for my CPU? Thanks Scott
