So I'm posting this from my laptop (and if you were curious, it runs Vista 64 bit), because I cannot do a single thing on my desktop at this time. I've had my desktop up and running for around two weeks now. I bought and assembled it myself, but frankly I don't know very much at all about computers, or how to fix them. Which is why I've come here.
The problem: My computer freezes. A lot. It started when I logged in this morning, as I have every day since I first assembled this computer. I went to connect to my internet, and... It froze. My computer's had freezing problems before, it froze last night when I was attempting to play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 online. So I hit restart, and chose to run windows normally. This time, it got as far as creating the little Windows logo on the "Starting Windows" screen before freezing. Baffled as I was, I hit restart again. I chose to run the repair tool, and lo and behold, It froze there too!
I don't have any important data on my computer, so I decided I'd wipe the hard drive and start over. The problem is... I can't log in. So, I pop in the cd and restart. My computer said it detected no disk.
Puzzled as I was, I panicked. I'm not sure if this hurt it even more, but... I turned off my computer, opened the case, and hit the Reset CMOS button on my motherboard. I saved it back at its defaults (though I am sure I never altered anything to begin with). Later, I went back into the boot setup, and it even froze there. Yeah... I figured that's a bad thing.
So here are my questions:
Does anyone know what could be the problem?
Is there any way for me to run my OS disk?
Any help or advice of any kind will be greatly appreciated.
