I'll be using my pc then the thing just randomly locks up but works fine after a reboot, is the cpu bottleknecking? All I've been doing on it was watching videos/listening to music.


Really wish I could experience an SSD but of course my bank tells me that I can not.

A bottleneck has nothing to do with lock-ups.

 

If you have any overclocks, go back to default settings and see how it goes.

 

If the problem persist, i would check if the system is stable by starting with memtest, then prime 95, then msi kombustor (or any other good gpu stress program).


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

So I've tried pretty much everything and all my hardware issues passed so it's got to be software related? I ran TDDSKiller and it came up with 9 threats

Hmm, that could be it though, maybe you caught some mall-ware that is interfering with your system.

Last resort is a fresh install of windows, or something that can remove those 9 threats effectively.

So it passes a full memtest run (all cores active), prime95 for at least 8 hours, 25 passes of Intel Burn Test on high, etc?

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Do you get any error codes if you go into Event Viewer?

Anything with an error code right around when it crashes.

Does it pass all the tests listed above?
