Computer is freezing.

My computer is freezing multiple times a day. That at a random move.
This is the log file i get:

- <Event xmlns="">

<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />

<Data Name="BugcheckParameter3">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter4">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="SleepInProgress">false</Data>
<Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>

I did a memtest and there where no errors.
I upgarded my harddisk with the latest firmware.


processor: Intel® Core i7-920
Moederbord: GA-EX58-UD5
Memory: 4 x OCZ 2 GB DDR3-1066
grafics card: ati Sapphire HD4850 1024 MB GDDR3
Power supply: Cooler Master RealPower M620
Harddisk: 2 x Maxtor STM3500418AS 500 GB
OS: windows 7 ultimate x64

Anyone any idea what i can do to avoid my system freezing.

Is your system just locking up or do you get a BSOD??

Do you have a good power supply for your system. The PSU could be causing problems.

Edit: "voeding: Cooler Master RealPower M620" I didn't see this, looks good.

My system freezes. So no mouse or keyboard input is available.
The only thing i can do is restart by pushing the shutdown.

after some extensive test found out it freeze due to wireless card. A netgear wg311v3 whose chipset is a marvell one i belive. This isn't a driver issue as it did this before drivers were installed. If its plugged in to the pci slot win7 will freeze randomly.

I thought it was the intel chipset drivers at one point but plugged in new card and works fine no more freeze's. btw card works otherwise as im dual booting with XPsp2

Hope this helps you

Nice you got it solved.
But i don't have a wireless card, so i think in my case its another problem.
My system is still under guaranty so i am letting the shop search for the problem/ solution.
Will inform here if i know what the problem was.
