It has been randomly been freezing the screen turning itself off. This can happen either very frequently or sometimes every few days. We have replaced the power supply with a GX650W, I have tested his RAM using memtest86, I put my graphics card in and the computer was still freezing. Running out of ideas.

The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort2. After checking what was plugged into the mother board on port 1-2 It was the CD drive so I have since unplugged this and the error has stopped dextermat September 13, 2013 9:13:34 AM Hi, Boot in safe mode and run adwcleaner, rogue killer and malwarebytes to rule out malware. Monitor you cpu with coretemp (dust off the cpu fan if their is any) Monitor your mobo temps with speccy. Also look for deformed capacitor on the motherboard.
