Windows 7: Freezing while playing games.

Freezing while playing games.

Hello, im having problem with system freezes while playing games. (League of legends atm).

No BSOD appears, the system just freezes, sometimes with sound repeating. This happens at least once a day.

perfmon shows your nForce networking controller as being disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

FYI - you had at least 2 BSOD's (the memory dumps were uploaded with the reports that you submitted). They occurred on 29 and 30 July. It appears that the one from 30 July was a Driver Verifier enabled bug check - what settings did you use for Driver Verifier?

Both memory dumps are Driver Verifier enabled. Please turn off Driver Verifier (it's supposed to cause BSOD's) by selecting "Delete existing settings" in the program, clicking on Finish, and rebooting the system.

Although the networking device is disabled, the drivers are loaded and are from 2008. I'd suggest enabling the device and updating the drivers. Looking at the systeminfo results, it may be that there are 2 nForce networking devices on the mobo - and only one is disabled.

Send-loop.exe (email Marketing software) is causing errors. Not much else is evident. Have you checked for video card overheating?

Yes, I have two networking controllers and I only need one so I have intentionally disabled the unused one.

I remember those crashes. There was no BSOD, the screen froze just as usual. It might been a BSOD but it didn't appear on screen.

I turned it on in hope of finding the cause. I have it turned off now and freezes are still happening.

Ok, I'll update the drivers if i find any.

If you're making programs - how many are you using on this system?
Is it possible that a glitch with one of them is causing these problems?
I wonder if you may need to reinstall Windows to test this out?

Please run the reports again - maybe this time we'll catch an error in one of them.
Please also let us know the approximate time of the last freeze.
