Windows 7: PC Freezes, Red CPU light when restarting

PC Freezes, Red CPU light when restarting

Hello everyone, I have a problem with my PC. Last night my screen freezes while I was browsing YouTube. When I restarted my PC it would not pass boot state and the red CPU light on the motherboard would be on.

I turned off the power to the PC, and the next day I can start it just fine. Right now I'm on the PC.

I am asking for help here, because I already send my PC to a manufacturer who said they fixed it. If anyone knows where this freezing, red cpu light issue is coming from you would be more then welcome.

You can see all my specs on my profile.

Can you possibly post any event viewer logs? Click start, and in the search programs and files box type eventviewer.msc and hit enter. Then browse to where the errors are and see if you can copy and then upload them here or copy them to a notepad file and upload them here as a screenshot.

Don't see anything that happened at the time it freezed.
The only thing I can find is:
The previous system shutdown at 4:15:56 PM on ‎2/‎9/‎2014 was unexpected.

I always make sure the temps are never too high, when running software like FurMark or anything it never gets higher than 63C .
