Random Freezing

Hey Everyone,

I'm hoping that this is where this is supposed to go in the forums, but I'm having this random problem with my new computer build.

Basically, the problem is this, every once in a while the whole system will freeze. The mouse, keyboard and speakers will stop functioning and the only thing that seems to bring it back is a restart/reset. I'm not really sure what the problem could be, as the temps seem to be fine and it doesn't happen at any particular time. I've played SC2 for 30-45 minutes straight without a problem, and it didn't freeze during that. It seems to focus around internet usage, but it isn't happening very often.

My main question is, should I be worried about this and is there anything I can do to keep it from happening?

  1. Sounds like network drivers then - try disabling some of your integrated perhiperals from the bios, including your nic of course, and then run something a lil system taxing in the background until it does it again. Do you have moe information? like what programs you use that access the internet, as well as driver versions?
