Well in safe mode you are only using the bare minimum of system files and to go into the usual boot means that something is amiss with the total system. I am now assuming the problem lies with a piece of the hardware as the crashes are now in Windows and Ubuntu.

We have done the power issue and the drive and I am wondering if the CPU may be at fault so could you run this please - if you can of course Prime95

I've been running the blend test on Prime95 for nearly 3 hours on safe mode without any problems.

I would also like to run it after a normal boot but if the computer crashes how can I know if it's Prime95 that crashed or it it is what normally happens. Will a cpu stress test crash the computer differently than just a simple freeze?

I have come up with a method to stop the freezing issue.

Completely remove video drivers in safe mode and then restart. This does solve the issue but if I restart again, Windows automatically loads new video drivers which leads to freezing.

This means that every time I turn on the computer I need to go into safe mode, remove video drivers and restart. It takes less than 5 minutes to do this and I only have to do it once a day so I don't mind.
