My pc has been randomly freezing periodically and follows no pattern.

For months now my pc has been subject to random crashes. I need to power down my pc every time this happens because it becomes unresponsive after this happens and I have no idea why. I've cleared the '%temp%' and the 'c:\windows\temp' folders already and I have my admin events in a compressed (zipped) folder, but I don't know how to upload them here sadly. I would massively appreciate any help on this as it is souring my experience of my pc massively. Thanks.

That information need to be in here. That way it will follow your every post and members will not have to search for it.

So we both are speaking the same language; what do you mean by crashes?

* Does it shut down all by it's self?
* Do you get a BSOD?
* Does it just sit there and do nothing? (freeze)
* Are you doing anything in particular when this happens?
* Do you monitor your temperatures, if so what are they?
* Are you over clocked?

Thanks for the specs.
Could you add your power supply to them.

I don't see any logs.

When I say crashes, whatever it is im doing at the time remains in visual sight, but I can no longer move the mouse or do anything anymore, other than power down my pc.

No I get no BSOD it literally just sits there and does nothing. It never powers down itself. I am playing games or on google chrome primarily when it happens, but if I put the computer on sleep mode it will still crash then and the screen will return to as if I have taken it out of sleep mode. I am not overclocked.

you could try turning off Sleep and Hibernation for testing and see if the problem is still there.

**Do you monitor your temps?**
