Hey guys, so I have a very frustrating problem right now. About a year ago I built my computer and the first few days i played with it, it would also randomly freeze so I took it apart and assembled back again. Now the same problem is back and I don't think taking it apart again will fix it.

My specs:
asrock z77 extreme4 mobo
i5 2500k
gtx 560 ti
4 gig x 2 kingston hyperx ram
corsair cx 500w power supply
windows 7

Also alittle more about my problem.

It just started happening 3 days ago. It would freeze after 10 minutes of use, then I would cold reboot it about 3-4 times before it becomes stable and shut it down when I sleep. Been doing this for about 3 days. Today the problem was a little more difficult it would freeze during the welcome screen where that little circle spinning thing is.

Another sign of trouble before my computer completely freezes is that my wireless connection would have problems connecting/finding a network. Then I would click it and computer freezes.

Any idea of what's going on? :??:

Could be a faulty RAM stick. Boot with only 1 stick of RAM and test it from there.

defrag, anti-virus scan, clean up disk, delete unnecessary files and/or programs, Memtest, check for faulty hardware and cables see if they are loose and last resort upgrade bios.

So far I can tell that defrag, virus scan, clean up, deleting didnt work. I'll do the memtest later on then move onto the bios update.
