while browsing on google chrom for long hours my computer will suddenly freeze up!! and giving it another 5 minutes that it might stop freezing, the blue screen will come out then BOOM!! restart automatically..

I've never had this issue before, my computer is 4 months old, this issue been happening for 5 days straight now.

I'm using a 120gb SSD OCZ Vertex 3 Max Iops

I'm using a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit upgrade version ( i lost my Win 7 Home premium OEM DVD )
G.Skill Ripjaws 16gb RAM 1333mhz
i5 3570k with Gigabyte Z77-D3H
MSI GTX 560 ti Hawk

  1. I'd try a different browser just to see what happens.
    Run Memtest (bsod are often cause by drivers and bad ram)
    Make sure all drivers are up to-date.
    And last but not least. Tell us exactly what BSOD your getting so we know exactly whats happening.
    Happy doomsday and merry Christmas.

    I'm sorry sir i have no idea what the BSOD said.. because it happens in a FLASH!!! lol, im too slow..
    and all of my drivers are up to date, im not sure about my SSD though because i don't know where to look at it. whenever i tried to update it, windows said its fine, i run the memtest and some diagnostic for my ssd and HDD's everythings fine..

    I'm currently using firefox now following your advice..thank you!! if i still got BSOD what would you think might be causing this issue?
  3. Sounds very much like an SSD issue. It stops responding for a few minutes then the OS gets tired of waiting and blue screens.

    Install the latest OCZ SSD Toolbox (link below) and see if your firmware needs updating.
