Random Freezes in Windows 7 ultimate 64bit

Hallo all,
Immeditly after installing windows 7 on a new computer
i get random freezes, there is no BSOD or any error: the screen freezes and starts to flicker, the led of the mouse turns off and the sound jams.
I believe i have updated all drivers.
I have run the Windows 7 Memory tester and it detects no problems with my RAM,
I also have run sumsung hard drive test which reported no problem found.

I need your help please,

Oran

Your event log shows a lot of unexpected shutdowns and re-boots.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Also your Bluetooth adapter has failed.

Windows memory tester is not very reliable.
Down load and run memtest86+, run the first test with all RAM cards installed.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Post test results and any minidump files you get..

is it possible?

I ran memtest86+ -it shows no errors after 10 pass.
i got one of the memory sticks out and the computer works fine.
after further investigation i noticed that the computer freezes only when that memory stick is installed.


is it possible?

From my experience, anything is possible.

With more than 4GB RAM, 2GB or larger RAM cards, you will likely need a memory controller voltage bump.
Since you have 8GB RAM, 2X4GB cards, this needs to be addressed.
With some information we can make some adjustments.


Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Have you been checking your temperatures?
Use Real Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.

Try d/l a new version of CPUZ 1.57.
The new CPU/motherboard may not be updated on that version.

If that doesn't work then d/l Speccy Free System information Utility.

The QPI/VTT Voltage is the integrated memory controller, bump the voltage to 1.10v.
Test for stability with both RAM cards installed.

Post the CPUZ 1.57 Memory and SPD tabs.

Yes, bump the QPI/VTT Voltage to 1.10v.


CPU - Stress Test with Prime95
Run the Prime95 Torture test for 4hours, if it has errors you can stop the test. If it stops on it's own that's an error.

First open Real Temp to monitor CPU temperatures, don't go over 77C.
Open Prime95 and stop the test if it is running, in Advanced tab select 'Round off checking', in the Options tab select 'Torture Test...', in the window that opens select 'Blend', after 'Number of torture test threads to run' enter 4, then click OK to start the test.
