My computer keeps locking up/freezing.

My computer keeps locking up/freezing.

I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional and installed all of the newest drivers for everything. I have also Memtest and a HDD diagnostic, both of which came out with no problems. CPU temps are good and I have re-seated every power cable in the case.

The lock ups are completely random. I went an entire day without one, being my work computer that is pretty good since it averages 4 lock ups a day. Tonight I have had 3 in the past hour. This has been going on for about a week and I am all out of ideas. I am getting a spare PSU and a GPU from a friend this weekend to test out.

HELP!!!

    It could be a virus but I doubt it since you did a fresh install of win7. (try to scan for one anyway) Also try to clean out all the fans in your case. Dust build up can cause issues.

    Just did a scan and I cleaned out my case so those should be fine.
