I found out what it was. It was XMP mode for my ram. i turned it off 10 days ago and have not had a freeze yet while browsing, im going to give it another couple of days turn it back on wait for a freeze just so i can be 1000 percent sure.

Its a profile in the corsair ram that overclocks the ram to the clock speed it is advertised at.

Windows 7 Hangs Browsing

Most of the people I have talked to have solved the problem by changing the Power options default in windows 7 (Balanced) to High Performance.

Hope this helps.

I've turn my power options to high performance. No dice.

My freezing still occurs usually when I am browsing through the fire fox web browser shortly after turning my computer on. Some times my mouse is the only thing not frozen and some times every thing is frozen. Always requiring a hard restart. But never happens after the first time until I power off my computer again.

I've looked for solutions and been coming up empty. Not willing to try drastic and time consuming measures that will not work.

Your post how ever caught my eye Sotorious. I'm also using corsair RAM that I had built my new computer with at the start of the year.

I'm curious to how do you disable XMP mode?

solved

I had the exact same problem as you guys. Always freezing when browsing the net. I even tried out Vista on the same hardware and to my total amazement > could reproduce the problem. Games and stuff never crashed the machine. But whenever I watched videos in the browser the thing would hang within an hour. Of course I first blamed Adobe Flash.

I tried EVERYTHING, divers, bios, etc. - total frustration. Then! I found out that my system would not behave the same with either DIMM used separately. To make a long story short: I had RAM that was either defective or not working fine with my motherboard!

Later I checked the QVL for my Asus P7P55D motherboard > shit! My Corsair RAM (Corsair TW3X4G1333C9A, 2x2GB, DDR3-1333) is only given an ok if it's version is higher than 3.2 plus one has to overvolt them also. That's crap.
I immediately bought RAM from a different manufacturer (Patriot) and all problems were solved at once. Not a damn single crash since! Wasted 20 hours of my life to solve this problem... sick.

In your bios there should be a setting where it will say Auto Manual or X.M.P i don't think it comes on by default but flip threw it and check, also what kind of ram do you have?
