Is my CPU the problem Tags: CPUs Graphics Cards Last response: January 8, 2012 8:23 AM in CPUs Share johnpaulcain December 28, 2011 3:50:55 PM I have had a random freezing issue with my PC, I've changed graphics cards, RAM, mobo and still can't rectify it. Very random issue, sometimes freezes a couple of times a night, sometimes once a week, freezes during boot, during games, whenever. When it freezes fans and lights and HD seem to still be whirling away but the picture freezes and you can't do anything other than hard reset. Any thoughts much appreciated!

I suspect maybe the thermal compound has fail on your CPU and it's auto shutting down to protect itself. esrever a b à CPUs a c 92 U Graphics card December 29, 2011 12:56:46 AM what cpu and yes, the temperature would also be good to know.

Sometimes it freezes 30 secs, sometimes after hours of hard gaming. I've checked the temperatures and they rarely get above 70C. It's happened since I built the PC over a year ago, I've just not been able to rectify it.
