Windows 7: Random Crashing on Win7 (Most of the time while installing something)

16 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random Crashing on Win7 (Most of the time while installing something)

I don't get a blue screen or anything, but my system tends to just, stop. The mouse works, but nothing else will. If you mass click, the mouse freezes as well. I at first thought it was the OS, so I reinstalled.

Did that, and for the past 2 hours, everything was good. Tried installing something, and it froze again. Thought maybe one of my memory sticks was faulty, so I took that out, and boom, still freezing.

Made sure all fans ran proper, all cords plugged in, still freezing up.

Kinda worried something big is wrong. Been troubleshooting since i woke up 10 hours ago. Figured I'd get some help. If I need to post anything more, please let me know. Thanks.


(ps - all drivers are up to date, to my knowledge).
