Windows 7: Random Freezes

Windows 7
Random Freezes

I do not/ I dont see any BSOD's


I have been experiencing problems with my computer recently.

It randomly freezes. When it freezes, I have to press power button for 5-6 sec to shut it down, turn the power supply off, and wait for 5-20 mins before turning it back on again.

If I dont wait for that amount of time, when I switch on the PC, all the fans and some lights come on, but nothing happens, just the fans keeps spinning.

No Blue screens, No error messages, just the frozen picture on the display. Nothing responds, not even caps lock or num lock..

Any ideas?

- I just got GFX card replaced with new one, because it was thought to be creating the problems, but now with new graphics card, its not I guess.

Thanks for your time.

Pertinent information on freezing.

Go to search type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers
Download and run malwarebytes, a full scan after you update
Run antivirus scan
Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
If overclocking, restore to original
Test hard drive at company website.
Test in safe mode, does it still happen?

This seems like a lot, but go slow, ask questiions and you will be up and running
