Hello, so i recently re built a pc, i am new to this and everything was going alright, so i have,
Windows 7 64bit
Pentium, dual core processor
Samsung spinpoint 1tb f3
4gb unknown ram kit 2x2gb sticks
gigabyte g41mt - s2p
450w psu
nividia geforce 7300 le
pci wifi 54mbp/s

So as it goes i have installed windows and started installing programs then it freezes so i restart and then go to install avast and then it freezes. So i decided to reformat the computer and reinstall windows. the problwm carried on, i thought it might be the drivers so i updated the video card driver with diffuculty as it kept freezing, i installed all of the drivers that came with the mobo as well. Although the problem has not happend as freqently i can not intall software with out it freezing.
Any ideas?

Might be more of an hardware related problem try running some hardware scan like memtest, testmyhardware, etc.

jaja it sounds like a cpu/ram problem. also, make sure u put enough thermal paste on the cpu wen u re installed it.
