Windows 7: Random Freezing While Gaming

Random Freezing While Gaming

So for the past few months, I've been having freezing/Lockup issues while running League of Legends. When I get into a game, everything will be alright and then I'll probably tab out and go on Facebook or whatever it is I'm doing and after tabbing back in, I'll try moving around and I can start to feel my computer bogging down and then my computer will lockup! I really can't determine the problem... I have ran a windows diagnostic test on the memory and came up with no problems. So, I'm not sure if it's a RAM problem or possibly a read error on the HDD or even a League of Legends error.. My brother and I use have the same exact build and he doesn't experience any of these problems that I'm having (Build specs on my profile)


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
-Rob

Try these hardware tests and report back


1. Memtest86 - Run for 7-8 passes - RAM - Test with Memtest86+
2. Prime95 - Run all three tests (Large FFTs, Small FFTs, Blend) for 3-4 hours each or until fail - https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html
3. Hard drive scan usings SeaTools - SeaTools for Windows | Seagate - Both long and short tests

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll go do my thing and run some stress tests and get back here with results in a few hours.

Well, so far I have ran almost all of the stress tests with Prime95 for about an hour each and have come up with no errors each time.. I know it says to run for 3-4 hours but have switched about every hour.. Possibly why I have came up with no errors..

It would say that a fatal error occurred if something went wrong. You really need to run each test for 3-4 hours each for best results

Well, I guess I was over-heating.. I should have checked my 'dust-status' inside my case first. I was running at about 70 degrees C and after a thorough cleaning I dropped to 30ish degrees C. Haven't had the problem since Wish I would have checked that first haha...
