This is my first post on the forums so hello everyone!
I hope you can help me find the problem that's causing my system to hang to the point where even the cursor stops responding and I have to do a hard reboot. No BSOD whatsoever, just a complete halting of everything.
The hang up does not present itself with every game. Just to name two of them: Armed Assault and EVE Online. I have had this problem on Vista and now with Windows 7. I do manage to install Armed Assault but when applying a patch to it the system hangs.
My somewhat thorough troubleshooting has made me come to the conclusion that this hang up is caused by large files or large compressed files. I actually had a hang up today when I was trying to extract a 2,5 gig zip file. Since EVE Online is a single file download (that's the one I was trying to extract after unsuccesfull install attempt) and the Armed Assault patches are huge single files this might be the problem. I need to know what's causing the hang up on large files so I can continue playing EVE Online.
Where should I start looking for the problem? What info should I provide to you?
Thank you in advance!
