Windows 7: Random Freezes (no BSOD)

08 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random Freezes (no BSOD)

11/10/2010 update: This is solved. No need to read further. The issue is the power supply.


I am hoping you are able to help me with my dilemma.

My system now freezes multiple times during the day. There is no BSOD. The screen just freezes. Uptime is starting to average well under 30 mins. I have run Memtest86+, Prime95, Prime95 from the UBCD 4Win environment, HD diagnostics (SeaTools). After running what I know how to run to eliminate hardware as a possibility, I went throught the steps in How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7. The system still crashed.

No yellow warning markers in device manaer.

Though not always the case, I notice that doing file searches and running utorrent does seem to make the system crash more often. Also, running the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 usually crashes the system. It took me 4 tries before I was able to generate the folder.

I attached the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & the PERFMON report.
