  1. Hangs when you are doing what exactly? Does it blue screen eventually, or reboot on its own? What drivers have you installed?
  2. thanks for responding. Hangs as in computer freezes doesn't even move unable to start task manager and also move mouse. No blue screen at all but eventually pc turns off. drivers which are installed are factory (CD which came with it). Tried updating the driver as well but no use. also tried doing the window updates. no good.

    I'm not even doing anything. So no gaming just normal browsing the internet.
  3. Found the issue. The issue was the factory OC was configuring my CPU and RAM to not a suitable frequency.
