I got a barebones computer from magicmicro.com 4 months ago with these specs:
Intel i-5 2500k 3.3 GHZ 115 Unlocked
MSI H67MS-E43 1155, SATA3, DVI + HDMI
DDR3, Kit = 8GB PC10600/1333MHz (2pc. of 4GB)
Geforce GTX 570 1280MB
AC 97 Direct 3D Sound Intergrated
500GB Seagate Sata3, 6gb/s 16MB Cache
Ultra 750W SLI Ready
Cooler Master Elite 310 black/blue,Neon
It worked pretty awesome. Before I installed Pro tools, occasionally when I would put it in sleep mode it would turn off by itself a few hours later. This did not happen very often tho.
So a few days ago I got Pro Tools M-Powered 9. This is a version which should be compatable with Windows 7 64 bit. After it was installed and restared, Pro Tools worked perfectly. I used it for 4 hours or so and shut down my computer when I was done. The next day when I turned on my computer, it froze at the windows logo screen. I was only able to get to my desktop through safe mode and I uninstalled pro tools the proper way with the cd. After I uninstalled it my computer worked that night, but the next day I had the same freezing problem. So I dont know if this is because of pro tools or my computer parts dont match up well and it was a matter of time until this would happen. I dont even know what customer service to call: pro tools? MSI? Windows? eitherway im sure all of their customer service would suck. Any bright ideas would be great.
