Don, As long as you haven't added a thing to this machine and now it's locking up there are a few possibilities.Have you pulled your memory and reseated it?. Memory creep is a real thing that does happen over time along with oxidation. Are all of your case fans operable or has one or 2 quit on you?. Is the CPU fan operating properly?. Is your power supply on the way out or running warmer than usual lately?. These are the items I would check first, one by one and see if the problem is taken care of. You can go from there if it's not.Bobby

Don't know if this helps you, but I know that at times when I was overclocking a bit too much I would get that exact issue. [h5]Best Wishes,Randy J.
