Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

Use just one monitor at a time. One then the other and see if you can isolate the problem. Might help and might not but it's free.

Alright, I'll give it a try. I'll make another post when it happens again.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I've been away for a few days so no freezes yet. I did get the message saying that the driver stopped working and recovered which I mentioned before. Here's an image of it.

Edit: NVIDIA just released a new driver which may help with my issues, here's an excerpt from a techspot article about it:

Coinciding with last week's release of the GeForce GTX 760, Nvidia dropped a set of 320.49 beta drivers which were welcomed by gamers with mixed feedback. Today, Nvidia has released a WHQL version of its 320.49 driver which hopefully sets right the issues (e.g. freezing, BSODs, image corruption) reported by some beta users.
Since it mentions that it fixes all 3 issues that I've been having I'm going to give it a try.

System Freezing
Wasn't sure where to put this, but this seemed the best place. Every so often, my system locks up solid to the point I have to manually power it off by holding the button down. It can be sitting there idle, or in the middle of a game, or most commonly, looking at the Playback/Recording settings...
