First post here since I have browsed through the whole net to find a solution to my problem. Im not a PC expert I tend to play video games mostly but I tend to have some knowledge about computers and have some close friends that know more than me in the OS's.
First of all I would like to say that this exact problem occured to me long time ago when I downloaded a Windows 7 OS from a torrent. back then I thought that its common for the OS to be buggy and doing these things so I switched back to windows xp. Back then I also had a gfx card that supported dx11 and the only reason that I wanted back then to install Windows 7 was the dx11 support for next gen games.
1 week ago or so bioshock 2 came out so I was happy that finally I could see dx11 in a video game. I went on to buy a legit copy of Windows 7 since I wanted to get over the problem it used to have with the downloaded version.
Now onto the problem. First of all back then we also tried several things to my computer now we are 99% sure its probably a driver problem. After reading some posts I might do some tweaking on the BIOS.
About my specs/drivers.
Im using a intel core duo 2.66ghz with geil ram running at 1066 mhz, also ATi Radeon 5870 with the latest drivers, using a razer deathadder mouse along with a microsoft reclusa keyboard. also using a logitech g25 steering wheel, and 2 external drives through usb. so all my usb ports are occupied. i also got a corsair 650watt supply.
Right now Im at work and will try to attach any files you might want from the events or something else ( please explain to me how to do these things when u ask em because im no expert ). oh we also did a memtest so ram's fine.
Oh yes the problem. Whenever I leave my PC open at night to download a torrent with utorrent, when I get to my PC I see its been frozen. what I mean by that, the keyboard isnt responding not even caps lock on/off, the mouse is stuck and cant do anything! Back when I was playing world of warcraft I knew how to cause this same exact freezing. Here is the catch , when I tried entering with my lvl 80 which was located into a big city that had many players around , this problem occured, but when I was entering with an alt lvl 1 to an empty world, the problem didnt occur. What the hell is this?? SOmething that had to do with the internet?? because I can play modern warfare 2 non stop or anyother game and my PC doesnt freeze!!! I can play 5 hours non stop my PC gets nothing, when I try downloading a torrent after a while it freezes. On a side note which is very very strange, when I downloaded Friends which was 28gb the first time I installed Windows 7 the PC didnt cause a freeze and it downloaded properly. maybe something that has to do with my external drives or something that has to do with the internet? then again im thinking about the bios.
Btw my 1 external drive is 500gb the other is 1TB. my main drive C: is 1TB.
PS: I dont play wow anymore to test if it still happens.

How do I change setting on my bios without causing anything to get damaged? I have an ASUS p5k and use 2x2gb ram of Geil's fast ram's running at 1066MHz
