More about computer freezing internet videos playing game
  1. you need to give the memory a little bit more voltage. Try 1.55 or 1.6.
  2. Are you playing online games OK? My guess would be network drivers, but not if you are running online games fine.
  3. Try a different web browser and/or the latest flash player.

    I can't use youtube with Firefox but videos work great in Chrome.
  4. like the whole screen freezes that i cant do anything so not just the browser
  5. ok i set DRAM to 1.6 on the left it says 1.5
    is this right?
  6. yup, give it a try
  7. ok i set it
    but how do i actualyl know its 1.6?

    CPU -Zand Eastune6 show 1.5v
  8. they show the SPD setting (default from the module), not the voltage in the BIOS
  9. ok thanks im going to let get back to u and if everythnig stops freezing ill have to select urs as best answer
  10. still froze
    any other idea wat is causing it?
  11. Maybe overheating, check if the cooler is correctly attached. Is you Windows a fresh install or one you have ported over the new system. maybe PSU is on the verge of failing. Maybe BIOS need to be updated. check for loose connection inside the case. Is the case well vented with fans pushing and pulling air to create a good fresh air circulation.
  12. i checked my temps idle can be 1-30
    full load 45 tops

    rechecked my case its all vented

    do u think its my psu not supplying enough power at certain times?
  13. Did you update drivers?
  14. it could be, but that would be surprising. The wattage is there, but maybe that, on one rail, the AMP is not strong enough.
    Is that a fresh install?
  15. yea drivers are all updated

    ive never had this problem till like 2 months later of being built so yea
  16. there is 2 kind of thermaltake 600w PSU. good one and cheap ones. If it is a 600w tr2, and it was inexpensive, then it may be the bad ones. it can be dying..

    This is the most likely correct answer .

    Your browser , or a browser plug in [ most likely FLASH] is causing the problem

    uninstall all browser plug ins , and update or change your browser
  18. it might be but ive had freezes when idle
    is flash running when idle?
  19. i think mozilla firefox might be making me freeze,
    it froze when i listende to like 10 songs then i restart comp
    then i used chrome on youtube and i freeze

    all flash players are updated

    Try to update the network adapter driver to the latest version by going to the device manager in computer properties and locate the network adapter: LAN or wireless and update the driver.

    Something is wrong with the memory, hard drive or SSD.
  27. are you sure this isnt just the speed of your internet connection?

    If its not fast enough to keep up with the video the video will stop and only continue after buffering ....getting far enough ahead that the video can keep playing
  28. its just odd how it freezes when idle, or browsing the net
    but plaiyng l4d2 for 3+ horus its fine
  29. is it me or i feel like when its not in use or low cpu usage it freezes
    but when fullload or games it doesnt freeze?
  30. It may get unstable when it downclocks and undervolts.

    Try disabling all the power-saving features in the BIOS.

    Not really a fix at this point, but a troubleshooting measure.
  31. Hey. I had pretty much a similar problem. Now my advice : get your PC back in the default settings in (BIOS), when you have done that simply clean the registry. That should help. Here is a link for registry cleaner : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner
