Windows 7: Win 7 Freezes

Win 7 Freezes

My windows just completely freezes and does not even respond to the capslock button, completely nothing, while making huge noise via speakers. It sounds a bit like a wongly set chunnel on the radio when u miss the right signal and hear noise.

It happens when I play games, doesn't matter which game it would be....
Simply does it out of the blue.

I recently installed a game called 2 worlds II, and it said something about physic X, so I told it to replace mine, I suspect this to be the trigger, though it didn't start right away...anyway the game is removed by now.

I looked for driver updates but it says I have the latest version...

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you might have driver corruption from the game. The other reason for this problem is usually hardware related.

Try cleaning up the graphics drivers with Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Then install the latest driver from ATI.

The problem is (after reading your system specs) that Phys-X is an Nvidia tool, and you have an ATI card.

After removing phyx my system crushed....

When it got up again I removed my ATI driver and reinstalled it.

Now, apparently, it's working.

Did you remove all the remnants of PhysX? It did not crash mid-removal?

I formatted full format (not quick)
And the windows freezes randomly, not to speak it works slow.

After I installed the mobo driver it gave an error msg the program has to be closed, and the reboot ended up freezing on the mobo logo.

After this point I finished the mobo driver installation (it automatically started from the point it asked for the reboot), and the rest of the drivers.

All I installed was skype, and 2 gpotato games (online games, both are original and not hacked or on private severs, both ran on my previous comp (which was 4 years old, single cpu) completely fine)).
And ofcourse it didn;t finish the installation of either of them.

it's simply freezing I dunno what the cause may be...

Ok I checked the reliability and it finally made a dump file -.-

I dunno why but usually it doesn;t even notice something went wrong...

The error notice is as follows:

Problem: Windows stopped working

Description: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e(0xc0000005, 0x9645e2a7, 0xa3cab794, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 121510-18298-01.

See if you can follow these instructions at all, and I will try to get some help. If nothing else, zip up the minidumps and upload them

LiquidSnak gave you a spot on suggestion. We need the dump files and the other files generated by following the instructions in the tutorial he listed. Make sure your computer is configured for a mini dump. Follow the instructions in the last part of the first post of this tutorial to configure for mini dumps: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...en-forums.html. The 0xc0000005 code means memory corruption.
