Windows 7: Freeze at different times

Windows 7
Freeze at different times


I have installed a clean vista an I did immediatly the windows 7 update, the PC was running fine till I was doing updates and install the windows updates. The PC was just freezing when making a restore point. My keyboard, mouse, ... all not working, it seems that these pheripals have also no power anymore.

I fixed the problem with the updates by setting up to make no restore point when doing updates.

But then Windows 7 freezes sometimes when I was visiting facebook or other websites. I tought it was the GRAKA and I download the newest drivers for the ATI RADEON HD 4890 but also with no succes.

I plugged out the ethernet cable and install the updates of windows that were downloaded, and I setup again to create a restore point when installing updates, and then without ethernet cable it was working like a train.

Now, today a PC whitout internet is not serious so can somebody help me with this problem?

Motherboard: GA-P55-UD3P/R with a RTL8111D chip (10/100/1000 Mbit )
CPU : Intel CORE I5

Windows 7 x64 finally!

hi Dries, welcome to the forums
Have you also updated the drivers for your LAN adapter / motherboard?

By the way, freezes have been reported as being caused by overheating. Win7 tends to run hotter than previous systems. Are you overclocking and are you monitoring the temperature?

Hi, I downloaded the lan driver from the GIGABYTE website and I updated the driver.

For the rest I'm not using a temperature monitoring tool, can you suggest a good one? But when the pc crashes and I reset the PC he just running fine, so I think overheating is here the wrong word, because he "freeze" sometimes after hours when I'm playing games and sometimes after minutes when I just surfing on the net.

I have downloaded SpeedFan and My highest temperature is 27C.


I was installing software and he just freeze at the begin of the install, keyboard light and mouse light went of and there is the "screenshot" on my monitor again :s (Temperature 28C )
