What hardware could usually be causing this? Ive checked my temps and voltages a couple times a day and everything seems to be fine.

Basically any hardware. CPU, mobo, PSU, ram, etc. We check software and ram first because it is the easiest to do.

Temps do look Ok

Might even be RAM voltages. Consult your owners manual for the correct specifications.

Sorry I havent replied lately, but basically I remembered when I first got the computer when it would be idle for a while the computer would "sleep" and the monitor would shut off. I would always have trouble not getting the computer to come out of "sleep" or get the computer to power the screen back on. I tried multiple things, changing mouse/keyboard settings and I still wouldnt come out of sleep mode. Eventually I just changed the settings to never let it sleep or shut off the monitor. It would just sort of freeze in sleep mode.

This makes me wonder if the freezing in sleep mode has anything to do with the random freezing problem Ive been having.


Also is there way to get my hands on a windows 7 cd or file that I can use to reinstall? I have the product key and serial number for windows7 on the side of my machine but no cd.

Thanks! Ill give it a try tomorrow.

If I reinstall windows7 I will loose all my programs that Ive installed right? Also everything saved on the hard drive?

Can I try and repair windows with the usb? Or would it be best to to a reinstall with the problems Ive been having?

You can try a repair install but you will never know for sure what the system state is. While it is a PITA to do a clean install it is sometimes faster and less frustrating to do so,

Clean installs are all I ever do (far too frequently)
