My computer keeps freezing for some odd reason. Generally it is just when I'm playing Counter-Strike Source. But lately its been freezing when I listen to music and such. My computer has Vista Ultimate x64 and my computer's specs are good. I don't know whats wrong. I don't have my cpu overclocked much...

well first restore everything to stock settings "cpu/gpu/ram/mobo" and if its good then you know the problem was the oc. If everything's back at stock and theirs still problems the next place i would look is heat or maybe your power supply. Test your comp at stock settings and come back well figure this out.

I undid all the ocing and now it is still freezing only a little more frequent. I tried to run the System rating twice and it keeps freezing during that. I only overclocked my cpu nothing else was touched, could it be my RAID? This is my first time ever running RAID. My temperatures are also fine. The only thing that is a little high is my GPU. Its at 60 celcius
The other thing I notice is that when I ran my system rating, it froze and the same spot. It froze on the 3D textures. My g-card should handle those fine though. It the GTX 260

I could be wrong but this sounds like a driver issue! Try updating your video & audio drivers or even rolling them back or a combo of the two.

It still freezes...What should I do? Today I just updated my video driver and I got my BIOS to default.
I have never had this problem until I got vista and RAID

What's your Sound Output set at?

Have you tried checking your event viewer to see if there are any errors there? A friend of mine had a faulty drive that was sending a bunch of errors to the OS which cause the freezing problems. One look at the event viewer revealed the problem.

I had found this link earlier but I couldn't figure out how to get into my registry. It wasnt in system tools. Do you guys know of any free programs that allow me to look through registry?
