Windows 7: HELP! Freezing Custom Desktop

HELP! Freezing Custom Desktop

Hey everyone,

I have a custom-built desktop, revamped from an older custom-built desktop. I have replaced most of it since my last mobo died, and ever since, I have been getting some strange instances of freezing. It happens fairly often, and doesn't consistently adhere to any patterns of operation, but definitely tends to freeze at certain times.

To clarify, I notice it often happens not long after coming out of sleep mode or powering up. I'll often get a few seconds/minutes of use, then it locks up. I suspect it might be video related since I've noticed 25% of the time, it seems to freeze up once a video starts playing when I'm checking Facebook. Still, these are just things I've noticed, and might be entirely coincidental. I should note that I have replaced the power supply already since my previous one went bad, but it's still behaving exactly the same.

Here's my specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate
Asus z97-ar motherboard
Intel i5-4690K 3.50GHz
8GB 1600 DDR3 memory
Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX +
2x Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB
Thermaltake Smart 75OW PSU
Western Digital Black 3 TB HD (master)
Western Digital Black 1 TB (slave)

Thank you. My computer won't let me zip the file for some reason, but I added it as an .rar file. Here it is.

Update: I ran some stress tests. I tried Prime95 - it froze once, but that might have been incidental.. the other couple of times were fine. Ran Furmark for 20 minutes without incident as well. I should note that I play video games and it rarely freezes when doing so. Any ideas?

Loxley I have went back to the ranch and asked for some help from other members with your problem.
I'm very sorry it took me so long. I just somehow lost your thread.

Hi Loxley, welcome to 7F! :)

I looked in your msinfo32 report and saw:
PCI Simple Communications Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8CBA&SUBSYS_85341043&REV_00\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed. Under Problem devices.
In the Windows Error Reporting area you're having problems with Steam, and I believe software called rogame?

One other major problem you're showing is there are errors with Windows Updates.
With those update problems use this to upload your .cbs logs to this thread don't start a new one like it says in step5, see step4 to see how to get the .cbs logs: Windows Update Posting Instructions


It would be nice to have some type of .dmp file even a minidump.
Check to see if you have your machine set to record them use this to set for a small .dmp see option1 step6: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

If it's already set that way, use this to find them and upload them in your next post: Dump Files - Upload to SevenForums

If you are overclocking anything, set everything back to default level.
