    For some reason my computer freezes for no reason. I just built it about a month ago and I noticed it'll freeze if I try downloading more than one file at a time with Azureus or when I'm playing CS. I know the problem can't be due to heat because my computer gets no hotter than 95 degrees F. What's making my comp freeze? Thanks.

    Still haven't ran the memtest. Can the problem be due to the wireless card?

    Have you ever heard of that problem though? I guess I could try hooking it up to the router through CAT5.

    The MemTest is a great tool...but remember that it runs continuously until stopped! It does not complete on its own. Have you set your system to only dowload one file at a time?? You can set your system to allow 1,2,3, etc downloads simultaneously. If you set it for 1 at a time, it will APPEAR to freeze until the first download is completed, then start the second one you clicked on.
