Hi all, ive had windows 7 for about 2 years and have never had problems, i installed a new motherboard, ram, and cpu recently and was having no problems. I reformatted and since then have been getting freezing issues, they seemingly happen at random times and i have no idea what to do

System Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Biostar T890FXE Motherboard
Kingston hyper x ram, 4 gb 2 dual sticks
Seatage 500gb sata hdd
550w power source
Nvidia GTS 250

I checked the event viewer and have gotten 3 of these messages

Two years? Windows 7 only went on sale October of last year... Is this a legal Windows 7?

Here is my suggestion:

Since you upgraded your hardware, its time for a clean re-install.

If you truly have been running Win 7 for 2 years (which is impossible as even the Release Candidate has completely expired at this point), and I assume that you've upgraded to the RTM release, a clean install will benefit you anyway.

Even with modern operating systems, changing your hardware -- and this wasn't just a simple upgrade -- will cause issues unless you reinstall.

Okay, I assume you went from the beta/pre-release versions to the release version and that the new install has been activated properly. Is that true?

If so, can you verify that all drivers are up to date, particularly the video drivers and the AMD CPU drivers Windows Update installs?

Last, are you running a BIOS version that supports the x6 processor?

Good luck!

Yes the drivers are up to date, im not sure about the motherboard drivers im about to go update those and the bios does support the x6 processor, i was looking at memory support for my motherboard and i have 2 sticks of kingston ram (2gb each stick, 2000MHz) in the memory support there wasnt even 2000mhz on the list, could it be my ram is too powerful or am i just reading it wrong?

I suggest you set your memory to run at stock speeds (set everything to auto in your BIOS), no overclocking of any components until the system is stable.

What heatsink are you using? The OEM heatsink that comes with the x6 should be fine for normal operations, but not for OCing.

When you system dies what are you typically doing? Sounds like a heat issue to me. I suggest you look at your airflow and system cleanliness. BTW, what did you upgrade your system from? Your PSU "may" be a little weak given the current config, but I can't tell from the info provided.

Im using the heatsink that comes with the X6, im pretty positive its not a heat issue, my system is clean and running at normal temperatures, normally im playing a game and my psu is 550W

I've been carefully watching event viewer and just noticed soething with audit failures, every time i get a crash i get a message about my harddisk this is the most frequent that i believe matches with the crash

Code integrity determined that the image hash of a file is not valid. The file could be corrupt due to unauthorized modification or the invalid hash could indicate a potential disk device error.

Uninstall (and scrub with CCLeaner afterwards) AMD Overdrive and try again. How far are you trying to OC the system?

Im not overclocking it at all, all setting are on normal because i assumed it was a hardware problem at first but with the messages im getting it doesnt seem that way, im also getting messages like this, but they are not as frequent in fact i dont think one has come in quite a while
