Hello everybody, I'm totally new here though i've visited this site countless times anonymously. Well my problem is my Pc keeps freezing (just like the title says). I had windows 7 and it crashed every now and then while playing some video or surfing the internet and other random things. therefore i dumbed down to windows XP. problem still persists but with few crashes this time. interestingly everything works smoothly while playing games. i dunno what to do. Please Help!

PC specs:

# Intel i5 2nd generation
# 4 GB RAM
# ATI Radeon 5670
# 500 GB HD

45C idle core temperature is fine, I get similar temperatures on my CPU when I set my HSF speed profile to quiet.

What really matters is load temperatures which most people want to keep below 80C, preferably under 70C.
