My computer has been having strange problems ever since I bought it and now it's chugging along like it's loading something in the background...and it's not, I checked. I can hardly type this because firefox will randomly freeze every minute, which goes for everything else that I'm trying to do. I got Diablo 3 a couple days ago, beat it, no problems and now I can't even play the game because it will randomly freeze up and lag horribly every 2 minutes or less.
I defragged everything, cleaned the registries and cleared up anything that could possibly be breaking my PC but occasionally when I start up my PC it will actually get STUCK at the "Starting Up" windows boot screen and I have to restart it manually until I can log in. I don't know what's wrong with this piece of junk other then I feel like my motherboard is crap.
With that said, here's my PC specs -
Windows 7 Home Premium
ASUSTeK Computer Inc
AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1045T Processor, 2700 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processors (enabled all processors to be used manually in msconfig)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (drivers updated)
I honestly have no idea how to update the motherboard but I scanned my PC and it claims its brand is "American Megatrends Inc." version 0403, date: 06/21/2010.
I don't know if I actually do need a new motherboard but anyone have any idea how to shop for one?
