hi and welcome to seven forums

If you mean that milky white screen its probably caused by your lack of ram. 3 gigs would be fine for 32 bit but for 64 bit it marginal. You can verify this by opening task manager (right click taskbar) going to performance and see how much ram and cpu is being used when it goes white

Is it really the entire screen? (background and everything?) Or just the program windows that turn white?

Also, does the hard drive light come on solid when this happens?

Rolly, you keep saying the same thing without any details - does your HD light on the computer go fully on without any interruption? How long have you waited for the computer to unfreeze? What are you doing when this happens? Does it only happen when you do a particular action, or completely randomly? (visiting 3 different sites in Firefox is not random, for example, b/c every time you are using Firefox).

As for the 3 GB of RAM and W7 x64 - that is most likely not the issue, as I have W7 running on a P4 3.2 GHz machine with 3 GB of RAM and an ATI x1650Pro without this issue.

If the harddrive light comes on and stays on solid, then it may be a storage driver issue. Though personally I've not sen the entire screen go white before, just all the programs running.

New drivers from Intel available on the ASUS website fixed that sometimes. Other times, if you have a solid state drive, it's beginigng to lok like disabling native command queuing fixes it. But the bottom line is, if its a storage driver issue, the common syptom is that the HD light comes on and stays on while the rest of the machine has "locked up".
