Windows 7: System Freeze 50% of the time

Yeah. Those were related to the graphic card not getting enough power from the PSU. Fixed a while back, and I have not had problems with that since.

Also, of note: on the boot that freezes, the system will freeze and require reboot even from the login screen. It is unlikely that it is a third party program (unless there are some that are loaded before login) that is causing the problem.

Tigey,
Be sure and leave those unchecked until we find the problem.

I'm going to review the thread.

This could be a TDR-related issue with his card. It is definitely hardware related. What I was trying to do was to isolate the software issues.
If there is a spare VGA card lying around you could try swapping the hardware to isolate the fault.

Hope this helps in some way and regards

Card-swapping isn't a bad idea.

I also do not know if the specific 9800 model he has, EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+, is on the ASUS approved list.

Am still reviewing. I have not ruled out software yet.

What we are seeing is also very common in memory leak problems. You see, sometimes we are told that the problem appears immediately at startup and other times we are told that the problem appears after 30 minutes and is cured by a restart which would point towards a possible software problem. I can't hit a moving target. I have to have consistent reports of the problem.

Having un-installed Avira last night, I started up this evening, and there has not been a freeze/crash going on about 2 hours. I will start up cold again tomorrow morning and see what happens. Perhaps it is time to move to Avast or some other AV.

Thanks for letting us know
Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials are free alternatives (install one or the other, not both)

Sure enough. 3 cold restarts now an no freezes. Apparently Avira was the culprit. Thanks to all those who helped!

M4A79T Deluxe - freeze problems

Hello.

I have an identical problem to that described by Tigey - complete freeze of system sometime after startup, after reboot all is well until the system is restarted after a power off - each day. Problem seems to go away in the summer... Windows records daily critical events type 41 Kernal-Power.

I have swapped out all components including having RMA'd the processor. The motherbaord has been back to ASUS and had the bios changed. Memtests are fine. No apparent overheating problems.

Same problem has occured using XP64, XP32, W7 and Ubuntu operating systems.

Any assistance greatly appreciated. I am thinking of dumping the motherboard.

Great news on the fix. I am having a similar issue on a new build however I only experience the freezing issue when I have been using IE9. Machine was built for gaming, which it does like a champion. I will be posting the issue in a fresh thread with machine info etc etc.
