Windows 7: Computer Freezes Randomly

Again, no reply to my inquiry about what repeat errors in the logs which you'd be well familar with had you actually troubleshot them according to the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 .

What about results of SFC -SCANNOW Command, followed by if necessary a Repair Install, as a last resort before Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

When you reply to every inquiry only that you've tried everything but have had no real interaction on the actual grunt work that has to be done for each step, it means to us that you're not willing to do the work. So don't say everything has been done as we know what it takes to do these steps, and there are over a dozen steps I doubt you've even looked at.

I ran Memtest 2 times, and it showed 0 errors, but i still had problems.
I then tryd to take out 1 of my 2 chips and let the machine run and see if it crash. and it did, I then swapped it with the one i took out, and the machine worked just fine.
So if you have 2 RAM chips try to run the machine with just 1 of them at the time and see if that maybe helps.
I have 3 Ram Chips, they are all 2GB each; its a tri-channel set.

I've never seen a case where the clues would not reveal the cause when all steps are completed in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

What were the repeat errors and how were they resolved?

What were the CPU temps and what are the maxes for your model?

What Solutions did Win7 offer for problems which are always cued awaiting solutions?

How many passes did you run to test your RAM with Memtest86+

Add a stress test of CPU - Stress Test with Prime95 - Windows 7 Forums

Did you follow best practices for Win7 reinstall given in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, particularly for drivers which is different in Win7 than XP?

Since the OS is less likely the cause now after reinstall, focus more on hardware by replacing your cables and testing hardware again.

I Ran a GPU Stress Test for 30 Mins, Didnt freeze ran a CPU Stress Test for 30 mins didnt freeze, I called a acer repair technician he ran a CPU Stress Test for 1 hour, he ran absolutely EVERY stress test possible he even ran memtest overnight and came back the next day STILL didnt freeze. I DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS!

2,3 or 4 chips dosnt matter one of them and still be broken even to memtest dont say so. so i advise you to test out what i said if you haven't tried that all ready.

Why were you unable to answer any of my specific questions about troubleshooting steps you say you've done. You only replied to the new step to stress test the CPU.

If you'd actually done due diligence Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 then you would be intimately familar with the repeat errors and what you did to resolve them, your CPU temps and whether they are considered high or low, how many passes your ran the memtest86 and its results, and whether you followed the Best Practices spelled out in the Clean Reinstall tutorial so we know you didn't go off the rails changing out the drivers Win7 wants.

It's your lack of interactivity to resolve every single one of these steps before moving on to the next that is preventing you from resolving these hangs. At a time when utmost thoroughness is absolutely required, you ignore dozens of questions being asked to answer only one, if that. Until you start cooperating you can rail in capital letters all you want but you're not going to fix the problem.

Computer freezes randomly, not sure of cause.
Hi, I've been having problems with my computer freezing randomly. It generally for about 5 seconds or so, usually when browsing using Firefox. Also, the mouse cursor doesn't change when highlighting a link or highlighting text, it sometimes turns yellow so I can't see it. Any ideas? Thanks
