Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

Which Nvidia board are you using? Providing this type of information will be required for further assistance. Motherboard = Dell is not a correct answer. 780i SLI or FTW, 790i digital, FTW,...I have no idea which. Also what PSU are you using for your SLI? It's not listed at all.

Since several are having this same issue and the past 2 days NO issues while playing WOW, do you think the issue is OS? Right now I have the WIN 7 WVD video driver butit has done it with it. I disabled SLI and physX though.

Ok lately no freeze ups or just a rare one, havn't done anything, but now when on the vista 32 HD, when idle it freezes, the monitor shut off and it froze requiring the hard reset, it also does this on the Win 7 HD. Even during some occassions, [prior to the additional HD install with WIN 7 pro 64], while gaming get a lockup and the sound would be like stuck in a loop, requiring a hard reset. Could the sound card be an issue?, have the latest creative drivers? It also did htis with the original dell creative sound card. Lately, now vista will lock up when idle, what is it with this issue that so many seem to have. I have changed the profile to perfomance that didnt help.

Freezing During Idle

Ok I originally posted that I was getting the random freezing. You know, where the computer freezes and you can't do anything and have to do hard restart. I have a dual boot setup, 2 separate 500 gig HDs. One has Vista 32, the other Win 7 Pro 64. With Vista 32, the only problem I had was an occasional Lock up, sometimes gaming, and sometime surfing, where the Comp would freeze and usually the sound would be stuck in a loop, you would have to do A hard restart.
These were random and from as little as once a week to every few days. Seemed like it was maybe the sound card because the sound would be stuck in a loop. Well then I got the second hard drive with Win 7 pro 64 bit. Had the freezes like everyone else. Did the drivers on both, bios etc. Well the freezes have subsided for the most part, but a guaranteed freeze will come [only on the 64 bit] when the machine sits idle, I set the power to performance, but its like the machine is going to sleep or trying to go into sleep or screen saver mode or something and cant get out of it, or just doesn't switch to that mode. Only fix is a hard reset. Any ideas?
I think this is a win7 pro 64 problem, the freezes and now this issue, but who knows?

Oh ya I also get the explorer hang, not responding sometimes, especially if I like click and open it fast right after startup.

Serb, first lets turn off the sleep and hibernate settings: hit start and type power options and open that menu. Go to change plan settings, then change advanced settings. Where it says Hard Disk, set that to NEVER turn off, and where it says sleep, turn it to NEVER.

Does that have any effect?

Also, that is what I call a hardware freeze (caused by hardware, not software). I have a similar problem, very rarely. It could be a bad SATA cable or port on the motherboard.

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.
Hello, at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?
