computer Hard freezing
I have had this problem for a while now (since i bought my computer)

When i go into any steam game (css,gmod,Tf2,DoD ect) and load up the server list then my computer hard freezes. at first i thought it was my ram so i bought some new ram (corsair xms3 8gb ddr3 1600mhz <-- .Don't know if thats 100% correct sorry) and it's still doing it. I restored everything to default and nothing has changed.


Any help?

Are you overclocked? Have you tried formatting your hard drive?

Does the problem occur ONLY while using Steam? This is a simple but important question.

The answer will guide you in the right direction.

No It also happens when I use a Torrent program or when I'm opening a thread in a forum that has a lot of gifs (happened a few times)
idk if red orchestra 1 is a steam game but it freezes on it to sometimes.

Sounds like a hardware issue - Start from the bottom up. Memtest, Hard Drive, CPU.

thing is i ran memtest with my old ram and i got errors with one of my memory sticks, so i put in different memory and it's still doing it.I think it may be the Ram slot on the mobo is bad not the ram itself

bump again


now my computer is hard freezing randomly now. i can't even send a email on my computer now, it freezes basically 10 minutes after i start it up, it even freezes at the window sign in screen.


I really don't know what it could be, i have had some troubles putting the "stock" cooler in which might of messed something up (its not overheating though)

my guess is either cpu,Hard drive,Mobo
