Not my idea, but I found it online elsewhere and it worked for me! In BIOS changing the frequency ratio for PCI cards and - in my case - AGP video card (a bit older one, not the new PCI Express) - to the higher/highest number available. The default BIOS settings were much lower or lowest settings there. Incidentally, "software" based solutions such as reinstalling drivers
, programs, updating versions did not work. Again, only after changing the BIOS settings, all freezes stopped. To be safe, I'd recommend changing these settings one at a time and see if that works. Frankly, I changed both PCI cards and AGP card settings at the same time to the highest numbers, but that might be risky for some reason. Lastly, common sense I think, but simply writing down the original values and the new values in BIOS might help in case the new settings don't help or don't work at all. Hope this helps? Happy New Year!
