Arrp,

Just thought I'd let you know if you're experiencing the same thing, seems to be a common problem. I upgraded this morning and twice the computer has COMPLETELY frozen up.

I wouldn't upgrade yet.

okay, i'll be specific, 3.5.2 is the current version, for some reason i thought i'd jumped from 3.4.xx to 3.5.2. Can't be sure.

A bit of googling though shows others in the galaxy have had the same problem.

I've been on 3.5.2 for ages without issue on both my work and home PCs.

Have you tried turning it off and on again? :P

hmm .. well tbh it happened twice the morning that I installed 3.5.2 (from 3.4.xxx) and it hasn't happened since.

it's not the PC i dont fink, it aint brand new, but 7/10 spinkness i'd say. Running w7 which hasn't been a problem whatsoever since the RC was R'd.

Only problem i've had is when trying to up it to 8gb memory, didn't like the 4 sticks and BSOD'd. back to 2 sticks and back to normal.

however l4d crashed the other day and mass effect wont run full screen without a random crash. blaaady bollocks. never had this problem with my BBC B Micro.

Although i think the ME and l4d might be attributed to heat. i'm in a small room, and with doors closed the ambient temperature is around 28'c, and i checked the graphics card temp and it was around 75'c.
