Hi,

I am having terrible problems with my computer. Locking up, freezing and random rebooting with no explanation whatsoever, even freezing on the boot screen sometimes.
It got to the point where i could'nt play any game without it crashing almost instantly.

I believe i may have the cause now. I have just turned off all my mods for SH3 and suddenly everything works.

My question is, can modding the game screw up your entire system stability?
I know you can screw up the game but i have no idea if it can effect the whole system.

If anyone has any idea i'd really like to hear about it if only to eliminate that as the cause.

Try taking out your memory sticks and test them one by one... My guess is that one of them got fried ;-). Other option may be a broken graphics card. Same procedure. Take it out and see if your system runs stable again.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the advise and smilies's.
I had not thought of the memory of g card, but i lack the hardware skill to mess about with those and know what i'm doing.
My XP needs re installing anyway really so that's the current plan once i've got ready to do it. After that i'll certainly try the things you suggested.

Thanks again. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
