Help with hard drive freezing problem?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Whenever I try to install a new program my computer freezes for a little bit then comes out of it like it never happened. I't doesn't do it everytime just once in awhile but it will freeze my whole computer for 10-15 min then just comes out of it like it never happened.

Is anything overclocked?
Are there any odd noises coming from the HDD.

Yeah my cpu, memory and gpu are overclocked. I already tried putting everything back to stock settings and it still happens. And it don't do it with every program just certain ones. They are only a month old also. I haven't heard any strange noises either.

Update- Today I tried to install XBMC and it hung up at the end of installation fo about 15 min then everything in my system started to hang I then had to log off then log back in. I'm not tottaly sure that its the hard drives but every part of my system is new so I'm kinda lost at this point.

Did this start at a particular time, or did it always happen?

I already did. I ran the extended test on both of my Raptors and my 1Tb Data drive. It came back with no errors. Any other Ideas?
