Hi,

I have this homemade computer :

CPU : i5 2500k
CPU cooler : Hyper 212+
Motherboard : GA-Z68XP-UD3P Z68 R
Gpu : R697 LIGHTNING RT
Ram : 8gb Corsair 1600
HDD : 1Tb Hitachi
PSU : 900W Antec
SSD : Crucial M4 64gb

And recently, it won't stop freezing while only running firefox and Itunes. The application hangs, with the loading mouse signal, but i can switch application for a few seconds before the entire computer hangs. Then I have to reboot by pressing the power button on the case.

Also, I don't know if this is the same problem, but while I was playing Diablo 3, The computer screen turned black with random colored lines in it and a weird sound for a few seconds. Then it rebooted.

I recently tried relocation my user's folder to my HDD to get more free space on my SSD, so I don't know if that could be the problem ( I don't remember running into this issue before).

Thanks !

Check your ram. Ram always likes to be annoying. And does your motherboard have dual bios
