Find out the brand of hard drive and run the corresponding diagnostic utility. Seatools for Seagate drives, Data LifeGuard for Western Digital, etc. I think Samsung and Maxtor drives will also use SeaTools. Running memtest from a bootable disc would be my next step.
Edit: 154 degrees Celsius would literally make parts start melting. That has to be a mis-read. Use Speccy for more accurate temps


I should have emphasized that about chkdsk, that's why I said it was a good place to start. Let us know how the memtest goes.

My friend's PC is doing similar freezing. His usually happens when he is watching a video and doing other things simultaneously (usually browsing the web as well). I spent the day helping him run a bunch of diagnostic tools, and memory, hard drive, video card, etc. all came out error free. He then tells me he is running with one less fan, so I suspected the machine wasn't keeping cool enough, but his system temperatures were well within the normal range. My prevailing theory is hard drive (either messed up Windows 7 install or drive is failing), as he did an upgrade a few months ago from Vista.

Sounds like a memory issue or HD read error. Allot of times HD will pass chk disk and still have problems. IMO its not that reliable.

Use memtest to chk memory then if thats is not the problem go back to other items. Sometimes it can be registry problems also.
you can use CCleaner by piroform to help clean the registry and see if that helps.

My HTPC rig started randomly freezing a few months ago, turned out to be my PSU heading south.
Might be worth your while testing the psu for power drop outs, took me many days of frustration and swearing to figure out the problem !

Well I thought before I did a memtest I would play a few games, leave it a few hours etc and no crashes.

I took my PC totally to bits today, cleaned it etc, put it back together... so hopefully its fixed a loose connection. But we'll see.

not sure if this is an issue, but is your PC on the floor? next to carpet? and do u have an animal that's near it or close to it, my wife's PC had a static issue, we had it on the floor, and it would freeze randomly, pulling it off the floor, or putting a piece of non conductive material between it and the PC got rid of random freezes, especially after chkdsk is fine, mem test is good and other test come up with nothing, jsut passing on what i have discovered!

It's on the floor, but no animals!

I will try that cheers, but yeah hopefully it was some loose connection I couldnt find, so the re-assemble will fix that.

Did he do a fresh install or did he actually use the upgrade option? There have been a lot of issues reported when a machine is upgraded to win7 rather than getting a fresh install.
