Windows 7: Constant system freezing, every few seconds

Constant system freezing, every few seconds

Hey guys (and gals),
So the title really says it all. What I have tried to fix this (BTW I am running a triple monitor setup):

Restarting (obviously)
Running Chkdsk
Running Sfcscan now
Uninstalling and reinstalling CCC (AMD Catalyst Control Center)
Checking Task Manager for mysterious background tasks
Defragged

Thank you all for your help. I'm trying to get back into a decent game of CoD or LoL but currently it's unplayable.

Try a clean boot to help determine the cause

If you still have the problem when in clean boot, try to boot in safe mode. Get back to us to let us know if the problem is present in safe mode.

The problem is present in safe mode. Sorry, forgot to put that in there too. I've been trying all day to fix this.

If you have the problem in safe mode, clean boot will not help.
We have to start making educated guesses. I think its your hard drive.
Go to the website of you hard drive manufacturer and test the hard drive.
or you could try one of these to test

So I went back yesterday to run the longer test on my HDD, and mysteriously this issue has ceased to exist. Weird. It left just as quickly as it appeared... needless to say I am very glad it left.
Thanks for your help anyways!

If this happens next time, ensure that you are running your HDD in AHCI mode, if you do, try updating those drivers, I had an issue like that and driver upgrade was my solution...

Let me explain what probably happened. Part of the check is to replace corrupted segments. This can be done only a limited number of times. If it is needed to happen often, you will need a new drive. I suggest, back up your stuff now.
