Hi, I'm having some issues with my computer freezing randomly it doesn't matter what I do. I ran the OCCT stress test for an hour with no OC. Never froze up. as soon as it was done i started watching Justin.tv and it froze..

Asus M3N78-VM
8GB OCZ2rpr800c42g
Geforece 550 Ti
750w psu
amd athlon II x2 245 processor


a friend told me about RAM timing and that he had to purchase all new RAM for his mobo..

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

What kind of freezing is it? Is it just the application, or is it all of windows? CVan you hit ctrl-alt-del to get to task manager or do you have to hit the reset button?

Well, it could be a memory problem. Can you run memtest 86+ and test your memory?

I've ran the memory diagnostics on windows 7 and nothing came back o.O

It could be a ram issue. Sometimes OCZ and ASUS do not play well together. Both are good products though.

If it does turn out to be ram after memtest, replace it with Gskill, Corsair, or Kingston.

I don't know if this is accurate but it seems to freeze more often when downloading or streaming >.>, like yesterday my wife was trying to download the patches on the new star wars game and it froze like every 10 minutes or so.. I ran a OCCT stress test and nothing happened. then i was watching a guy streaming on justin.tv within 10-15 minutes it froze.

you burn the memtest ISO to a cd as an image, then boot off of the cd you just created.

You can also do memtest this way.

Also, I still think it is a memory issue, but just for kicks, reload the driver for whatever device you are using to connect to the internet. If you are wired through the ethernet port, reinstall the ethernet driver, or if it is a USB adapter, or whatever.
