I have noticed for the last couple of days that my comp locks up when i leave it alone for a while (ie: after the monitor turns off) when i go to shake the mouse and wake it up, it just sits there. then a minute or so later, the numlock key wont respond, so i know its definitly locked up, so i have to hard boot it, and windows dont give the usuall message like "windows has recovered froma serious error" or nothing, it just reboots like normal. I have only noticed it doing it when i leave it alone for a period of time, like overnight, or for 5+ hours. I have hibernate diabled and monitor shut down set at 30mins and hard disks to never shut down. its not OC'd. should i reload windows and see if happens again from a fresh reload, or start un-installing programs?
win XP pro
also, could my vid card be taking a shit?
Radeon 9500 pro with 4.3 catylyst drivers
I think my comp has alzheimers and cant remember to wake up when i touch the mouse
