Freezing

Hello,
i'm having recurring problems with PC freezing. I originally though it was when the PC went into stand-by, but turned that off and issue continued. Ctrl+Alt+del : get error message saying task manager not able to open, turn off using power switch. As nothing responds that is what I do.

Checked anti-virus, and have run various scans, no problems reported. I have tried using different web browsers and the problem even occurred even when no browser open. Music continued playing until end of track. Have updated drivers, no overheating problems, PC 1 year old; MB: ASRock H67DE3; CPU: intel i5 2500; 8Go RAM; Windows 7 64-bits; ssd 64 Go (14.5 Go free); 1 To SATA 6Gb/s hard drive (840 Go free). Had no orblems until this last month. What proceedure can I take? Thanks!

  1. Hi :)

    Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

    All the best Brett :)

    Hi Brett, thanks for the advice, I'll try and find that to download and run it, I'm not an expert in IT, is it "straightforward" and risk free? I don't want to mess anything up.
