Hello, I have been having a problem with my computer for awhile now. It pretty much started ever since I upgraded my PC, I installed the new components and bam half a hour later it hard freezes and ended up killing one of my hard drives. Since then I have had my computer hard freeze while playing something resource demanding or just randomly while doing nothing.
I managed to fix the issue by removing the damaged hard drive and everything worked fine. A month or so later I installed windows 8 and then the problem started reoccuring, thinking that it was just win8 problem I went back to windows 7 but the problem is still occuring!
I tried running memtest for 7 hours and it didn't find anything wrong with my hard drive, I bought a new PSU because I thought the one I was using was bad quality and broken, I have tried installing new drivers. I seriously don't know what to do anymore. I tried googling the issue and following some steps what were on there, but no luck.
4gb ddr3 1333MHz ram
Intel i5 3450
Windows 7 64 bit ultimate.
The hard drive that you are currently using as system drive. How do you know, it doesn't have bad sectors?
I just scanned my hard drive using the windows error checking thingy, no errors. The hard drive is not causing the problem.
Have you updated the motherboard drivers from Gigabyte's web site?
I have considered it, but flashing my bios is kind of dangerous and I don't know what revision my motherboard is.
Also when going to the event logs, it gives me this
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.
nevermind, fixed that error but it still keeps on freezing.
