Hello! I will say how it all happended
I was playing Chivalry Medieval Warfare (game) then i minimized it and started Minecraft (game) i forgot that im running 2 games and didnt realize it so i was playing Minecraft like 4mins but then it freezed but i could move with mouse and instead of mouse there was loading icon/wait circle so i tried ctrl+alt+del but it didnt react but still i heard my friends on skype and they heard me and then appeared small icon in left down corner and there was something like "System Windows stopped working end this program now?" It was something like that but im not sure mby it was just that if i want to end the minecraft/chivalry so i clicked on Stop Now. But it freezed anyway still had instead of mouse the loading/wait circle.

So i restarted PC by button then appeared ASUS motherboard icon and hit Del key to bios etc... dissapeared and then again appeared and was there like 10-15sec and then appeared Please Select Your Booting Device or Insert Booting Device and hit key... So i turned off PC by button and then turned on again and it worked just asked if start Windows Normally.

But the problem is every 1hour +- all programs stop responding but i can move with mouse and have to restart PC and again this problem Please select booting.... so i turn off and turn on PC again choose Start Windows Normally and again this repeat (1x it freezed totally and then appeared Blue Screen but now happens only this what i said programms stop responding )
But if i turn off and turn on PC before the stop responding of all programms the "countdown" resets so i have again 1hour+-

I tried also System Restore ( restored to 3days back) but didnt help.
I have 2x 6950 AMD and driver updated 2-3days before this problem (now its Catalyst 13.1) and mine motherboard is P8Z68-V and CPU i5-2500k RAM 8 GB and the Harddisk or SSD not sure now is Samsung HD103SJ

Your hard drive could have an intermittent fault so I would test it with SeaTools for DOS: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

Create a CD from the ISO file using IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

Boot your faulty computer from that CD to test the hard drive.

Ok i booted from that CD but didnt work mouse in it so i hit enter to accept the license and then it scanned and said that "No Hard Drive Found" and then if u think thats incorrect check cables etc..

What kind of test should i run? Tried the Smart Check on HD103SJ and M4-CT128M4SSD2 and both resulted in SMART - Pass ( Also tried Short Drive Self Test - Pass) Btw checked Driver Information and it say mine Hard Disk is Power-On Hours:5552 ( i guess thats kinda a lot :D  , When i turn off PC i dont turn off the button on the back of PC - power supply should i turn it also off? )

i leave the psu on and only turn of the case power with the windows interface to shut software off . for the drive time look normal ,your os is on the ssd unplug the hdd and try to boot the system to see if bios will detect thessd and os so it could boot .

Ok ill do it :) . Why i have to again unplug the hdd at the end? And which test you mean? If the bios will detect the ssd and os and if it will boot?
EDIT: Unplugged the HDD started PC it automaticly booted and detected SSD and started windows there was only "C" where is windows without the "D" (HDD) so the windows is on SSD and everything worked fine. So i plugged HDD again and it automaticly detected the HDD and now i have there also the "D" :) . Mby its now fixed and it wont freeze anymore... Btw i didnt try if it freeze only with the SSD plugged in ( HDD unplugged )
Well normally it still freeze... But didnt try if it freeze only with the SSD plugged
Maybe Graphic card malfunctioning? VGA or Graphic adapter (card) itself? Broken Capacitor ?

if the system boot and do not freze with the ssd only i would suspect the hdd to do the freeze use the seagate seatool on the link in the post to test the hdd maybe you will have to rma this drive for defect the tool will give you the answer .

Ok ill try only SSD if it freeze... With SeaTools for Windows u posted the link and i checked both SSD and HDD and resulted in "pass" but i didnt do the Advanced Test cuz it say it can damage data or what.... and on HDD didnt do the Long Generic test cuz it take too long and pc freeze 1hour didnt have enough time..
EDIT: Ok i tested only SSD plugged in... And it still freeze... I did almost nothing.. Was on skype call + had opened Google Chrome but with kinda a lot of tabs but CPU usage was like 40% and Ram 30%... Didnt check GPU temperature but its often 40-50C which is normal and after restart checked in Bios temperature of CPU/Mob and one was 30 and other 25+- which is also normal.
So the problem isnt HDD it freezed still without the HDD plugged in
Mby problem in windows/drivers? Should i format the SSD? ( Where is Windows) i can use the HDD as "external HDD"

could be not because the psu or the motherboard could be the one that made the freeze on that hdd since it is a big one could you install your os and test the system only with it not using the ssd also with only one memory stick at the time .

Without SSD? hmm.. And One memory stick what u mean?
EDIT: OK For First I Need to derermine if its Hardware or Software... How do it? leave PC running in Bios and if it freeze? Or Leave running Windows 7 DVD setup and if it freeze = hardware problem?

that is to help to find with part is making the computer freeze that why i ask you to install a os on you hdd then use only one memory stick on the board in the first slot and boot the system, the os should be on the hdd drive also if you have another system you could try the memory sticks in and do a memtest on them .
