Back in May my computer was hard locking every hour on the hour while playing World of Warcraft. I desided to open it up and give it a cleaning, which it needed badly. I also got AC, and things were really working well, until a week ago when it has gone back to hard locking while playing World of Warcraft. Usually it will do it after playing 4 hours. I'll reboot and then can usually get a few more hours out of it before another lock. As far as gaming goes, I only play WoW, and usually I only use it for web surfing. Today I wanted to rip a CD into iTunes and after 5 songs, it locked up. I rebooted, started up iTunes again and starting ripping from where I left off and again another lock up after 5 songs. I took it apart and its clean as a whistle. The warrenty has run out, so its not an automatic send it away and see what they think. I spent a lot of money on this thing (over $3500 after all was said and done), and I obviously didn't get my money's worth. Anyone have any suggestions before I do something rash to it?
