New build PC freeze up!

Hello all!

I got me a new PC a few weeks agoe, and its now starting to make problems for me
It just freeze up randomly, and i can not use my keyboard, mouse or any thing. and it comes a high looping static sound from my headset, and i end up in restarting my PC.
I have been luring around on other threads to see if i can find any help, but no luck
the only thing i can think on that might be the problem is a registry error of some sort, but not really sure.
Im not any good with PC at all so not sure what to do.

Your problem may be caused by many things > RAM problems >graphics drivers > overclocking > heat issues > using more than one AntiVirus at the same time > etc etc.

Some steps you may wish to try -

* Make sure that you are not over heating.

* If overclocking, restore to original

* In an administrators account type cmd in search.

In cmd type sfc /scannow.
This will report and fix minor problems.
Take note of what is said at the end.
Should your computer freeze, try to do the tests in safe mode.

* Search > type eventvwr

Go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for red critical errors.
Should the be any that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

*Clean boot. You may discover what is causing your problem.

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

* Go to search, type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers

* Download and run SuperAntiSpyware{free} or Malwarebytes {free} - do a full scan after you update.

* Run a full antivirus scan.

* Oh! BTW - Have you had any BSOD's?

Ok, ive just done the SFC scan, and it came back clean.
and all the drivers are up to date.
And the only red warrnings i found in eventvwr was from HL2.exe and skype.
found a few yellow warnings saying some thing about registry error of some sort. The ID is 1530, but dont know where to find the source code.

did you install drivers for the gaming keyboard?

If you didnt, then it is probably not talking to the computer correctly

If drivers were installed, was it from a cd? If so, the driver may be old. An updated driver might be available on the Manufacturers website

If drivers were up to date from the MFg site, then it might be a faulty keyboard or another component driver for your system that is conflicting.

If you are going to test on your comp, I would back up all data first, create a restore point and a form of backup image if possible.

Your post says new build, did you build this pc yourself?

Where did parts come from? was it a barebones kit? or did you pick all components?
