    Ok so about 2 years ago I bought a new computer. Since then every once in a while when playing a game, it'd freak out, let out a high pitched squeal in th emiddle of a game and just freeze. THe only way to fix it would be to restart everything. Since several months ago it would happen almost every day.

    After it crashed, often times the computer would not start back up. It would give me various error messages, stall at the windows loading screen, not show up memory diagnostics during start up, can't find DAT.dll... all sorts of shit. Sometimes switching the memory around or putting them into different slots would work and the computer would load up again.

    I've cycled through tons of drivers for all my components as well.

    I had AMD 64 2800 with a gig of pc 3200 ram, SB audigy value, and a radeon x800 pro video card, and a foxconn 939 motherboard



    BUT... I got so sick of the problems that I just bought a new motherboard, new 2 gigs of ram (threw the old one out), and a new sound card (soundblaster x-fi xtreme audio)
    -Now my computer insta crashes whenever I load up World of Warcraft.

    Yeah, did you format your HD when you switched out your new parts?

    Also sounds like it could be your sound card. Try taking it out and playing with on-board audio.

    Oh yeah, I've seen this very thing happen due to bad sectors now that you mention it.
