Windows 7: My Computer Freezes randomly while hdd Light turns solid red.

My Computer Freezes randomly while hdd Light turns solid red.

Hello, SevenForums Community

My Computer is giving me a problem for 1 month!

The problem is that, my computer Freezes randomly, while that is happening my HDD red light Turns Solid RED!

This is totally random, but it happens more times when i'm playing games (ex: Skyrim , GTA San Andreas , The Sims3).

But this happens also when i'm on my desktop.

This problem is making me bald , my pc "back in the days" could run Crysis 2 without a problem, now it freezes randomly.

I hope that you can help me, SevenForums Community.

If you need any information about my Computer tell me.

Hey LeonPT, welcome to Sevenforums

First remove all non-essential cards from your machine, i.e sound, modems etc, etc.

Download burn and run memtest from PassMark MemTest86 - Memory Diagnostic Tool. This will test your PC's memory. Leave it running for a few hours.

Next

Download the manufacturers disk for your hard drives. Test and ensure that they are functioning properly.

Remove and clean all components contacts and clean the CPU fan and any other fans in your system.

Report back with results.

Do you have a HD temp monitor? It sounds like a hw falt likely kicking in when the device gets hot. I'd back up if you ain't already.

Guys I have new information that i forgot to give.

Sometimes when i turn on my computer right before the windows loading screen something appears saying, and i quote:

Detecting drivers, please wait...

then i wait for like 3/5 min, and i says:

Detecting drivers done. No any drivers found.

Can that help on solving this?

Go into device manager and see what needs a driver.

If it keeps freezing up, re install windows.

The name of the program is MemTest86, it will run fine on a 64 bit system.

Please also make sure that you always have backups of your relevant data. That way it won't be that bad if your machine crashes

You should instead use memtest86+, it works better.

RAM (memory) test:
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Does the message say detecting drivers or simply drives?
