Windows 7: Computer Screen Randomly Freezes

Computer Screen Randomly Freezes

I remember awhile ago where the first time it happened it was playing Battlefield 3. That was my first freeze. Ever since when I browse the web or watch videos on youtube, my screen would randomly freeze. It even froze when my Windows startup screen came up where I had to type my password in. It seems it freezes whenever it wants. It happened for around 4-5 months already. I have tried several solutions but didn't work. I reinstalled my OS but it still has freezes. I tried using another graphic card from another computer and it still gave me a screen freeze pretty quick. I also used another hard drive and my computer was on for more than a few hours but still froze after. I tried using one memory stick at a time but same results. I've also unplugged some wires and replugged but nothing changes. I've also tried softwares such as AVG or Windows Security Essentials. I'm pretty sure my drivers are up to date. I guess I need more solutions. Any advice helps. Thank you.

P.S. Is this the right place to write my post? First time using this website.

Well my pc was built less than half a year ago Chris.

Going back to zigzag. I've had freezes when I'm on maplestory. But does that really make my computer freeze during other times as well such as browsing the web even when I'm not on maplestory. Appreciate the feedback.

Well, I just uninstalled the game and installing BattleField3. Hope this will solve the freezing issue. And to add something else this could help for 2 to 3 days but the freezing will come back. Happened to me a couple of times already

One way to find out. Remove maple to find out.

Well I decided to reinstall the game. I was on maplestory for some time in the last 3 days and did not freeze my computer. But interestingly enough, when I turned another computer in my place on, my computer froze. Anything weird about that? Or was it just ironic? First freeze within the last few days.

hmm.... lets see. I uninstalled maplestory and it worked for around a week but just tonight it froze. But... my computer has been on for around 10 hours or so. what could be the reason for the freezing to begin? its been only one freeze so far and had to do a hard shut down by pressing down the power button.
