Re: System beeps and then hang :(

have you still got your mobo manual?

sounds like it could be some kind of warning diagnostic.

the graphics heavy stuff will be running the CPU hard so it might not be

was brokes (the fan wasn't running at all) so i switched power supply and
everything ran just fine for abour 3 months.

is working, and so is the cpu fan.
