[win7 x86] Random freezing during startup, usage and idle.

System Info: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. Intel Core I5 H55M-E33 motherboard 4gb DDR3 Ram Asus engts250 GFX Card.

Problem:
- Half the time, system hangs during boot up (after BIOS loads)
- When system is idle, it randomly hangs
- System hangs randomly even when it is in use

Tried memtest and no problems found so far.

Any idea what's happening?

Are you using memtest86+?

When you run memtest86+ you are looking for bad RAM cards, bad motherboard slots, so you need to follow the testing procedure in the tutorial.
Sometimes errors from these tests can be corrected by adjusting the settings.

followed the instructions of memtest86+. No error found. Could it be a motherboard or graphic card problem?

(btw i did chkdsk on my SATA HDD and no error found)

That's good news.

Go to your OEM or motherboard site and check and install all drivers for your system.
Don't use the CD that came with the system, they are usually out of date.

Someone should be stopping by soon to analyze your attached files.
