pc randomly freezes

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
hi there,

I've build my first pc last october (2013) and since the beginning it randomly freezes. i ran all kinds off different tests. from RAM to CPU and GPU. no error at all. the second point is that it is really random. sometimes it works fine for a week and the next day it happens twice an hour!?

anyone got a solution smile.gif

I had the same issue but for me was the ram...even if i ran memtest for 12h and no errors i've just kept freezing, after i switched the ram looks pretty much stable, even if that ram module worked on an older platform, it's weird.

So if you have multiple ram sticks, try with only 1 at the time and see smile.gif

i have two sticks of corsair vengeance 4G with 9-9-9-24. but i'm not so sure it's the RAM because in the first place it only happend when i had some download programms running like utorrent. i fixed that problem by using vuze now. after that downloading with uplay would cause it to freeze too. fixed that by running it as an administrator. but i don't know what is causing it now?

but thanks for the tip i will try to use both of the sticks separatly in single channel mode. thumb.gif

I was watching a video on facebook, i closed the video went to the homepage and it froze. my mouse still worked and would even change from pointing to clicking but nothing else responds!?!? can't open taskmanager or anything. the only options are the power and reset button.

Check your CPU and seating of the Heatsink. It could be overheating and causing it freeze up.

checked it nothing seems to be wrong all nice and tidy. Also no reading off high temps. The highest it will get under full load is around 48ºC or 118ºF.
the strange thing is that my cursor still moves!?

seems nothing to do with the RAM. used them both separatly in single channel mode and nothing happened. purely random winksmiley02.gif

Try a round of Memtest86, just to be sure smile.gif
If that's clear, I would reinstall all the drivers, if that doesn't help, try a fresh install of windows.

Btw, have you OC'd your CPU? Might be an unstable overclock....

heat will do that - can you relate to most of your freezes ie. what prog does it the most - is it video ?

once in blue moon can be a OC - try reducing or up the volt tiny bit thumb.gif

asus automaticly ajust the voltages to its needs. VCore it's called. i don't know if that could be a problem? (from around 0,9V to 1,4V)
it also changes the frequency when idle to around 1900Mhz and under load to 4300Mhz. maybe to much stress?
