Windows 7: New build PC freeze up!

06 Aug 2011   #21

Windows 7 Home x64

The PC has been logged in on safe mode the whole day, and nothing happend. so dost that roule out HW problem then, so it must be softwere?
Can i do any thing with the machine when i run memtest? like play any games or use a web browser, or do i just have to leav it running?

BTW, yesterday i looked at a forum and a person there had the same prob as me, he got a tip to cheack how many sound drivers are active, i had 2, 1 AMD driver and one realtek driver. so ive disabled the AMD driver, to see if that helps me anything.

hmm... the PC has worked fine now sins last post. but today it stopped again. Was out for a few hours and when i got back it was freezed. and it dosnt show any errors or warning in event viewer. but i think its down to 2 things now. 1 the new keyboard i got is bugging the PC up, or 2 the USB ports is the problem.

Saw this but didn't get a chance to respond... I was thinking the culprit was ram, but you had tested it. I'm glad you found the issue.
