PC Acting really weird.

Hi, I have some sort of problem here, and I am hoping you could help me.

Sometimes, MY PC just freezes and I have to shake the Chassis to make it unfreeze again.

What problem is this?

Any help appreciated.

Sounds like something is not seated correctly.. Open your case ( make sure that the power is off ) and reseat your your gfx card, memory etc... Power back up and test ...

PS.. shaking your computer is never a good idea...

Custom Build

I concur with Tews,
you have a custom build so a component, either grafix, or mem is not seated correctly.
DO NOT SHAKE! Open the case and visually inspect and procede after using proper ground/safety precautions and power up again.

Hi folks, Just recently my Steam software has begun to crash when executed. I hit the icon, it loads then silently crashes. I have tried reloading it, running it in Admin, nothing seems to be working. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Cheers,
