    i recently built a new computer not a month ago. lately its been proned to completely lock up on me, both when its under load and when its doing next to nothing. it locks up, no mouse movement but winamp will finish the song its on. also, after i reboot it i lose all settings/cookies that i was doing.

    i think its related to:
    a: overheating? ive seen my proc run as hot as 55C

    b: some sort of software confllict, specifically trillian i think? although i just got the new patch that fixes crashes..

    c: something to do with my motherboard overclock AI?

    d: i also noticed my power supply fan runs around 1500 rpms. kinda low,but the symptoms dont seem to denote a power failure

    system specs:

    asus p4p800E deluxe
    3.06 ghz pentium 4 HT, 800 mhz fsb, 1 mb L2 cache
    ATi fireGL Z1 128 mb
    1 gig 2700 ddr ram from crucial. soon to be 2 gigs

    thanks!!
