I have just check my devices in Device Manager and they all appear to be working fine.
its so frustrating
Have you tired disconnecting one of the monitors to see if that corrects the problem? I would suggest trying each one on an independent basis with the other monitor disconnected.

I have advised him to do a clean install of his display drivers as he had installed everything in the Nvidia driver package. This is the guide i linked Ultimate 2013 Nvidia Driver Guide by MANIAC-VVV-

Edit: he's on our teamspeak

I checked the Events and they are all the same errors
I'm probably missing something, but if you did a clean boot, then ts should not be running - only Microsoft stuff should be running. You should use the computer like this for hours and hours to see if it freezes.

Then you reboot again with some 3rd party apps and services allowed to start. Again, you should use the computer like this for hours and hours to see if it freezes.

You keep adding apps until you find the one that is causing the freeze. This could take days to work thru.

Just to be clear, I was not directing my last post about why ts was running at you.

The OP should run the computer with a clean boot for quite a while. (Kind of frustrating to do.)

Funny thing: when I saw the OP use the letters ts, I assumed Terminal Server which can have an audio feed to a remote site, but that is rare. It really did not matter what ts meant, because it should not be running yet. When you clarified that ts meant TeamSpeak, I had to laugh. I suspect that there is a bit of an age difference between those using ts to mean TeamSpeak and those using ts to mean Terminal Server.

Originally, Terminal Server was this kind of stuff. Microsoft used the term for Remote Desktop Connections. Any mapped drive from the remote computer back to the local computer still uses "ts" in the path.

More than you ever wanted to know about "ts"

Yeah i knew it wasn't directed at me, no worries! I just thought it's best to keep it all in the thread to save any mix ups.
You might be right about the ts thing though as never knew about it either but thats due to me not using pc's for long.
I don't know if he tried the clean boot or not but i think he thinks it's solved as he hasn't had a freeze since disconnecting his second monitor which i don't think he has tried connecting agin since the clean driver install. I maybe wrong though.
No doubt he'll be on Teamspeak tomorrow so i'll get him to repost progress.

That is good news - no need to keep apps around that you don't use.
