PC freezing every few seconds.

A week or so ago I got a disk read error from a windows update so I figured it'd be easier to just reinstall windows 7 and copy all my stuff. Now with the new installation I'm getting freezing that progressively gets worse until I have to hard reset. After a reset it could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours to start freezing again.

My cursor will freeze into whatever shape it was in just before it froze, say I went to click on a link and it has a hand cursor, then it will freeze and it will be stuck as a hand until the next freeze.

I've done a virus scan that came up clean. As well as disabling startup programs in msconfig. I noticed that the cpu usage will spike during a freeze sometimes minimally and sometimes majorly, sometimes it's at 0%

I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and Nvidia GTX 560 Non-ti updated to 320.49, with 8 gigs of memory.

What are your system voltages, particularly NB, CPU/NB and DRAM

NB:1.105v
DRAM:1.510v
I'm not sure where to find cpu/nb

Also, I noticed in ET6 the target is 811.80 MHz, I figured it was misrepresented because the settings are default and games run fine.

Take the DRAM up to 1.56

Could you post a CPU-z dump from your system? That may help identify where the problem may be.

I just tried it and it didn't work, I think it kicked in faster.

Nvidia has a new patch out which creates problems with browsers. Roll back your drivers to 314.22 and see if that helps. I had the same problem and I think this should fix it. Make sure to do a clean install through custom install and unchecking nvidia update so you don't install the current drivers by accident.

Thanks, this seems to be working. Hasn't happened for 2 days.
