Welcome!

Try testing your RAM with Memtest86. Burn it to a CD using the built-in ISO burner (right-click on the file). Then boot from the CD and run it at least 5 passes.

Also test your hard drive. Go to the drive manufacturer's site, and look for their advanced diagnostic tools and run an advanced scan.

That's a start, if it doesn't work we can go on.

Check the Action Center in Windows 7 and see if you have any error messages.

Could you check your Event Viewer in Application logs to see if anything could be informative?

The chip set is part of your motherboard. Can you post a screen shot of your event viewer log showing the errors? You can do this using the Snipping Tool that is part of windows.

If u see this image, so many error event occur, is it normal?



And one more things, i cannot find my motherboard chipset, i already go to the vendor site, and it doesnt have the chipset driver. and i have google everywhere, still cant find one..

try installing the latest drivers for your graphics card (win 7 version) maybe you just need the proper drivers as i had this problem with the ones windows installs but once i put the latest drivers in it stopped (you might still get it occasionally at start up but that's just a quirk of win 7) just go to nvidia or amd website depending what card you have & download the latest windows 7 drivers for your card - hope this helps
