I just received my Pc back from the distributor after it has been there for a whole 7 days. They say they used Burin in test, seatools, memtest. The computer has been send in twice now, first time they replace the cpu cooler and the graphics card alone was also send in with no fault found. The computer have been freezing randomly since day one.

I received it back yesterday with my whole hard drive formatted. I installed windows 7 64bit after that I installed all the drivers on the motherboard CD. I then proceeded to download the latest version of graphic card drivers from their website. Installed Firefox, bittorrent and surfed the internet for about an hour and it froze completely mouse and numlock not working. Restarted reopned Firefox and bam after 2 mins froze again. I cannot understand what is going on. They told me the hardware is working 100%. Is it drivers? It freezes about 45% more when I stream videos could it be transferring data to the hard drive that causes an error but seatools isn't picking it up? I don't know anymore please tell me you have some idea or direction you can send me.

Intel 3930K

AMD Sapphire 7950 OC Edition

Are you just using the Seagate HD or are you using an SSD as well? If so you might want to try updating your drive's firmware and see if that will do the trick.
