Minifreeze/studdering

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm getting this mini-freeze problem that causes sound studdering and the screen also possibly freezes for like a second, this problem occurs every 5-10 minutes. Sometimes I have crashing problems on boot and it says that computer experienced problems due to overclocking in the bios and down clocks the ram to 1333. But everything is at stock speeds and ram is set to xmp 1600.

I ran memtest86 for 10 hours and it showed no problems, am i suppose to try this with each stick individually?

Do any of you have a clue what could be the root of my problems?

using memtest is pointless to me
i do use it every once in awhile to make sure everything is fine but if you really want to see if you have a bad stick, then take them ALL out and boot all the way into windows with a single stick. repeat with each stick until you find an error; obviously that stick is bad.

honestly though, just do a clean install of windows. i don't know why people waste so much time trying to trouble shoot when they can just back up their programs/data and reinstall windows. doesn't take much time and it's like you have a brand new computer.

if you do a clean install (and it's running normal) then put your data/programs back onto the comp, and the problem starts again, then you have a virus. if this is the case i suggest disabling system restore (that's what they tend to hit first), disconnecting from the internet and running some anti-virus stuff. then do another clean install. i know it sounds like a lot of work, but if ya want a flawless running computer ya gotta put the time in.

i would double check that the memory you have is compatible with your CPU/MoBo as well. if you have overclocked and you're getting errors like that then obviously theres something worng with the hardware

It could also be a firmware issue with your vertex 3. Make sure it is the newest firmware.
