Computer freezing and power on problem

I recently just built a new computer, and am having some trouble with it.

When I am using my computer, sometimes it randomly freezes, sometimes after hours, sometimes after just a few minutes. I have been downloading from Steam, and have heard that this could be caused by Steam, is this true?

Secondly, when I have reset my computer after it freezing, it powers on for 2 seconds, then turns off, then after another 2 seconds turns itself back on.
This can happen a number of times before it decides to work and load Windows. What is the problem here?

Any Help will be appreciated.


PS: My build is listed below:
CPU: Core i5-2500
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
RAM: G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT 1333MHz

Edit: I am not sure if this is the right place for this, since I am new here.

  2. I think I have the same problem... Mostly it happens to me when I am gaming, but it happened once while surfing the web..
    Does your screen randomly turn blue, with lots of words and numbers written in white?
  3. Nope, mine just freezes
  4. Oh well I do not know :\ im also trying to fix my problem, but not to much support yet..
  5. I have the same mobo.

    Similar issues. Screen gets distorted and freezes. In windows 7 startup, it freezes before the 4 color animation logo dots come in so it just says "starting windows." There's also been tons of weird errors like program names missing and dll files being damaged or corrupted. Also bios screen freezes and the reboots after post that you mentioned. This particular mobo has this issue. I am still working on fixing mine.
