I sent my computer into my local repair shop telling them that it freeze's and such. They ran a diagnostic saying that my hard drive was defective. 100 dollars later. They installed it got it back. Installed all the disk and now I'm still having the same probablem. Could it be something else internally.
I have a
Intel core 2 quad processor Q8300
8 gb ram
Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Asus p5g43t-m pro
Windows 7 home premium

Freezing and random crashes tend to generally be a problem with the power supply, it will run fine but then lock up, memory issues will result in bsod. If the hard drive was faulty it would first usually result in massive drive thrashing and extreme slow downs before becoming useless or just completely crash out one day.

No more crashes anymore after replacing the hard drive. Now is sudden long freezing
, but always seem to happen when I'm doing something in a application.

Hi :) 

I own computer shops that do repairs....in the UK...

Umm $100 ISNT ENOUGH for a NEW hard drive and reload...

Are you TOTALLY SURE they put in a NEW hard drive and not just reloaded windows ??

You can look on the drive to check its got a 2012 date....

As it sounds like a crashed hard drive to me...you can always run HIRENS CD in DOS to check it...

All the best Brett :)
