Windows 7: Constant freezes and crashes . . . not sure what to try next

26 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Constant freezes and crashes . . . not sure what to try next

I've been having problems with my computer crashing or just freezing up when I try to watch Hulu or play facebook games full screen. That seems to be the only times it has problems. I've had it crash once while playing WOW, but that was it. Also, not sure if it is related, but even when not playing full screen, facebook games, such as farmville and frontierville, run slow. Wow and other games seem to run smoothly unless there is a high amount of action on the screen.

I've run memtest with no problems and I've made sure all programs and drivers are up to date. Could use some help with what the problem may be. Software or hardware? Thanks.

Constant Freezes/Reboots, but no BSoD...
I've been having frequent freezes from start-up to about 10-20 minutes afterward. On a rare occasion I can avoid a crash for over 30 minutes, but a crash is inevitable. I haven't been fortunate enough to get a BSOD, and my minidump file is over 2 days old (don't remember seeing any BSoD then...
