Ive seen mentioned from the original OP that no dump is saved.
This occurs mostly when the RAM is the cause of the freeze.

Can you check if the RAM is getting extremely hot?

Sidenote: I saw in your specs you have 64bit W7 running with only 2gb of RAM.
That is pretty tight and not recommended.

Greetings.

The RAM is nor nearly used. At the moment, I have 1.4GB RAM free. Why should the CPU overheat? I use a Noctua towercooler with a 120mm fan and another 120mm case fan directly behind it.
The freezes happen when browsing when the CPU is loaded below 10%. The exact same hardware setup ran stable in Vista while gaming etc.

I will check the temps just to make sure though, but I do not expect them to be high at all.

Can't hurt to run memtest for many hours. Perhaps there is a problem with ram. Overnight is the best test.

While we're on the topic of RAM. I've been monitoring the RAM usage a little closer now. What it the concept behind most of my RAM marked as "Standby"? At one point I had 1.3GB marked as "standby" and only 3MB marked as free!
A quick Google search did not yield an explanation.

BTW, temps: 29C MB, 17C Core 1, 22C Core 2, 24C HDD, 50C GPU

I have attached an English language hardware report generated by everest if that is of interest to anyone.

Those are good temps, very good even.

Just a question. You haven't by any chance disabled the pagefile have you?

Don't mind the free RAM, the standby RAM is what matters.

I am confused a bit. Do you have 2gb or 4gb installed?
Another thing, do you have a wireless connection active?

MDDLMN. I'm not hijacking just wanted to let you know I'm working through the exact same problems and I'll post anything I figure out here.

I'm working off a freshly built system so I'm gonna install XP for a day or two to make sure its not hardware related.

Keep the thread updated so I know what you tried.

I'm having this same kind of problem, but it doesn't happen every hour. it just happens randomly, and usually happens when I'm watching a video in WMP, but not everytime. except my mouse pointer changes and turns to a fuzzy straight line. (anyone know how to screen capture your mouse pointer?) nothing shows up in event viewer, and all my drivers are up to date. I can't seem to figure out what is going on either

After ruling out bad CPU/RAM, and after ruling out heat, we now turn to power.

Trying turning off ALL power management tools/apps - no Cool n Quiet, no Asus whatever, no power tweaks at all. Set power config to High Perf and CPU states to 100%

Test, report.
