This PC (not mine) has been having some freezes. This has been going on for about half a year now and I just can't really find the source. As for BSOD's, there aren't really any. Most of the time it just randomly freezes. Since I only had freezes, I didn't really know exactly where to start looking. So I started to check the software, then hardware. Troubleshooting I've done + Results Clean Install
I first re-installed the operating system and did a clean install of Windows 7 (there was Vista installed at first (when the freezing first started to occur). Since Windows 7 has better memory usage and is more reliable. But without results. So I knew it wasn't the operating system causing the problems. Memtest
I checked the RAM using memtest86+. which returned 120 errors. I then took out 1 of the ram's to test which one (or if both) were damaged. one of the ram had 100% pass while the other still returned the 120 errors. So I took out one of the ram's. But the freezing is still occurring. Specs
It's an Acer M3641
Could this be the PSU dying ? (I read that OEM's PSU die quickly.) and/or the motherboard? and how can I check which one needs to be replaced? or if they are both damaged?
