Computer freezes, hangs randomly!

Hello i have done several reinstalls of windows 7, and it hangs and hangs. I can't move my mouse or anything, sometimes when it hangs, it makes a stutter sound in my headphones. I have tried linux mint, and when im using linux mint, This never happens. Ive tried updated my motherboard bios, graphic card, almost everything really. I dont know what it can be, i have also, disconnected all the parts in the computer and reconnected them several times, doesnt help. Does anyone know the solution? Heres my specs.

I think its possible that the partition where you install Windows 7 happens to be corrupt. So use your Linux Mint and use some disk checking utility from there to perform a complete disk check of your Windows 7 partition..

Hello Zhyper and welcome to Seven Forums. What brand hard drive do you have? Download the DOS version of the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic test and run the long test. Also, the sound you hear in your headphones could be an audio driver conflict. Try reinstalling your video card drivers. Uninstall all of them first from the control panel and make sure the display driver is the last one you uninstall. Then, after the reboot, begin the install, but select 'custom' install. Be sure the 'clean install' box is checked and uncheck everything except the display driver and the PhysX driver. Nvidia installs an HDMI driver which no one uses and can conflict with your on board sound or sound card, especially Realtek, which most of us have. See if either of those help any.

The grub boot loader from Linux may be causing issues. Try wiping and reformatting the entire drive, that is if Linux in on the same drive. You can delete all partitions and reformat with the Windows 7 installer.
