PC continues to freeze after replacing everything except the optical drive and CPU

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This darn thing keeps freezing, even after the board was replaced, and the ram and hard drives tested out okay, and even through reinstalling windows. The only things left untested are the cpu and the the optical drive. We just replaced the DVD drive; so, we'll see how that goes.

I'd just like to tap the collective knowledge of this forum and see if anyone has had similar problems (and maybe found a solution.)

Specs:
EVGA 122-YW-E173-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI Motherboard
Q6600 processor at stock 2.4ghz
4GB of ddr2 ram
GTX 275 graphics card
2 160GB seagates in RAID0

It tends to freeze randomly. No real rhyme or reason. It has object dock and had rainmeter. We uninstalled rainmeter, and that also yielded no results. =/

Sounds like a memory problem to me. Is the memory compatible with your board as i know some 775 boards are very fussy with ram. I would also run memtest to test for errors.

^Agree, test for memory errors first. If that doesn't work, you can try upping the vcore a bit. Cpus usually degrade over time and start needing more voltage to keep the same frequencies stable.

Could be your power supply.

I had a computer the kept freezing about a year ago, did all the memtest stuff first as you always are supposed to do. Returned everything to stock settings and still the problem persisted!

So I unplugged components one at a time and lo and behold, after unplugging my DVD rom drive the problem stopped. I then did a bit of reading and turned out it could be the PSU so I put it into a second computer and it wouldn't even boot.

One RMA later it was fixed.

In cases of random freezing I test out the PSU first as well. Bad memory will ussually give a BSOD rather than freeze. If the PSU checks out than I move to the GPU.

I had a similar issue awhile back. My pc would randomly lock up. I finally tracked it dow the the CD drive. When I plugged a CD drive in, any cd drive the lock up would come back. To this day I do not run one.
Unplug yours and see what happens.
