My computer freezes randomly after a certain amout of time. this occurs faster when i play games. it dos not freeeze when i aint touching anything, for example when i start a movie and let it run.

Ive scanned for viruses several times and such. please help D:

It is probably your CPU or GPU overheating, since you said it happens in games (where the CPU or GPU would be required to work harder) Get a program that measures the temperature of them, measure it while computer is idle then go onto a game and measure that then paste them in here.

It still crashes without any big load, for example just from opening browsers and just clicking around on computer files. the approx crash timer without any big load is 30-120min, but under pressure its 5-60min, and when im not doing anything it never crashes. i can have my computer on for ever if i dont touch it, but if ive had it on for a while then tries 2 click something it instantly crashes

If it doesn't happen when you are not doing anything then the CPU is having some sort of crisis.

What are your specs for the hardware and what OS version?

RAM issues are among those potentially causing random lockups.

Click the Windows 'start' button (used to be a start button anyhow) and type "memory" in the run/search box and run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool. Choose 'Restart now...' or 'Check for problems...' as appropriate and let it run the check against your memory. It will display the results when windows next loads (pending any lockups).

Let me know how it turns out.

Good Point by MJSBLUES.

What is your ram? how many sticks, speed etc, make/model? Overclocked?

Could you post a pic of the PC innards?
At this point, I'm not going to even suggest DUST!

Hey I'm getting the exact same problem and I have the exact same GPU, It happened on my old PC too and this new one I built myself but transferred over the GPU so I think It may be that causing the problems, I have ran multiple Mem tests and the sort, and my GPU/CPU temp never raises above 70 degrees

If this thread is still active, I'd suggest to check the brand and specs of the ram, some motherboards perform much better with the manufacturer tested ram types with the preferred volumes as sometimes a higher volume may actually slow down a cpu rather than speed up the system. Perhaps try just using 8gb of ram, assuming that the ram is actually paired ram and not single sticks nor quad ram types.
