I am using Abit IP35-E along with Q6600, 4 sticks of 1 gig corsair valueselects, 200+320+500 gigs of hdd, Sony G170S, XFX 8600GT and a CM extremepower 600W psu. No oc. No bios updates. Windows XP pro + SP2 fresh installed. First problem i face is at boot-up. The screen with huge Abit logo shows up and pc remains stuck there. I have to restart the damn thing by cutting power. There is no regularity in this behaviour but it happens most of the times. What does cause this ? And whats the solution ? Second problem i face is that pc freezes up in the middle of something for 3-4 seconds and starts working normally after giving me a popup for 'New audio jack inserted'. This freezing up happens a lot of times and i am seriosuly fed up. Reason ? Solution ? PS: Darn.. it froze twice while typing this. Also, can someone help me with Bios update steps ?
