Windows 7: very very random crash during random times...

very very random crash during random times...

This is very weird! I had window 7 for about 6 month and it never did this until recently. Either when computer is idle or playing game, or typing up a paper, OR watching a movie, it will very randomly freeze and sound of movie i was watching will all get very slow motion wise. For example, if statement was "Hello", when the freeze up happen, it will be like "Heeeellllloooooooooooo" and i can not move my mouse or keyboard which forces me to do a booting.

I checked temp and nothing is over heating. i cleaned out registry with ccleaner also and did not help. I ALSO checked for driver issue from device manager and it seems like everything is up to date.

I read around this forum with similar issues and someone suggested to update a audio driver. My audio is not realtek and its called High definition Audio or something like that. I tried to update but crash still happens randomly.

Maybe I have a bad ram? someone suggested manually increasing the voltage from the BIOS menu but I am unsure on what to do there.

I just tried powercfg -h on . maybe this will fix it but i just wanted to post here for ur opinions. thank you!

Do you use Windows Live Mail?

I ask because the same sort of thing would happen to me, but I was able to trace it to that program. It had an especially nasty quality of freezing right when I opened it as well as freezing while I watched videos.

Have you tried using MemTest86? memtest.org

Its basically a program that you boot, and it stress test's your RAM.
Best thing to do is run it when your not going to be using your computer for a long time, or right before bed.

8-20 hours is a good length to thoroughly test your Ram, to make sure its not caused from that. You can get away with shorter, but I find I like to completely remove doubt when trying to eliminating the cause of the problem.

Another program you can try is Prime95.
It is a stress tester that is ran inside windows. It has 3 kinds of tests, plus can test your hyperthreading etc.

You can try running each of those for a few hours. It would be good to keep an eye on your temperature every so often on your video card and processor during these tests. Just to make sure nothing is overheating when your computer is maxed for a while. (sometimes a computer won't overheat until the temperature of the air inside the case gets hot)

Both of these tools are more for testing the hardware side of your computer.

while your information is correct, this is a thread from march. I hope they have figured it out by now.

Just a FYI
