More about computer freezes completely
  1. i have ran memtest for 12 hours and it gave me 148 errors
    - Either your motherboard is stuffed
    - or someone sold you dodgy RAM
    - it might also be your RAM timings if you've played around with that.

    Tip: Your error count in MemTest86+ should be zero once burnt in, and ideally no more than 1 error in 3 to 25 passes when burning in. More than 2 errors in 25 passes is a hardware defect (usually).
