Windows 7: Computer freezes only when loading something

That doesn't make much sense that your internet would cause your system to freeze.
You say that when you are doing offline games, it doesn't have this problem? Do you stream video while you are gaming?

No I don't it will just freeze if its LOADING a streaming video. Once the video load fully, it wont freeze.

Hmm, that is very odd. Can you check how much memory is being used when you try to stream a video? I know it might freeze, but if you can try, that might help to figure the problem out.

Sounds familiar! I have a similar issue.. my computer freezes when I have a browser (either FF or IE or Chrome...) open.. if I don't browse, no freezes at all! I haven't tried switching from a game to browser, but I can imagine it will happen then, too. Does your computer also freeze (or reboot) when you leave it idle WITH some browser windows open?

Actually, no. On every computer I've owned, if I leave it idle with no windows open, it will freeze for a time proportional to how long it was idle. I think roughly 1 minute for every hour idle or something. However, it's a kind of freeze where I can move the cursor, but the taskbar doesn't slide up nor do any desktop icons respond for a while. Then after a moment, everything will catch up.

I have this problem too (computer freeze with last screen). I notice this when I alt-tab and sometimes in game. I already ran Memtest, Prime95, and CPU Stability Test, so I am pretty sure it's not the CPU or RAM.
