Hello! I have this problem really long and this annoying me so hard and i couldn't find help anywhere so i came to you guys :) 
My problem is that my computer Freezes up mostly at game start up, but sometimes when idle and sometimes when browsing internet. This forces me to hard reboot computer because no other way to turn it off. Sometimes it runs good and wont freeze when playing games and i'm being very happy :D  PS. My computer froze when wrote this post.
When i hard reboot my PC and windows starts i get error message "Windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown"
Event - Bluescreen
LocaleID: 1063
BBCode: 124

I want to mention that this started happen when i build new PC. I added new motherboard, few new RAMs, new CPU, new PSU and new GPU. And yeah i should take back my old GPU and replace it because NEW was broken and i think it crashed PC all the time until i change GPU to old one. When PC crashed Windows Repaired every time launched and a lot of my programs gone. When changed GPU to old one crashed gone. But freezes started.

I tried to change almost every my PC hardware except motherboard and GPU. Tried to change RAM sticks(also tried to use only one), i ran Memtest86 but no errors. Tried to change my CPU back to old, but the same problem. Tried also change PSU to old one but also no luck. Checked Temps and Voltages seems all okay.

This is the info i get when i use BlueScreenView sofware:

"Crash Adress: ntoskrnl.exe+4b094c" looks like a possible corrupt file in Windows

open CMD and type in:

sfc /scannow

and hit return.

You said you installed a new motherboard. Was windows installed previously and you just moved the drive onto the new motherboard? If so, that's your problem. When switching motherboards a clean install is recommended. Your old OS has drivers for your old motherboard which most times will not work on a different motherboard.

You can try updating all your drivers first, but a clean install of the OS will be best.

I overlooked the motherboard change. Hawkeye's probably right.
