Mmm I'm not sure where to go here either. I have put in a request for someone else to pick this up.

Sometimes a bad memory module can cause random freezes. You might also check the event viewer log to see if there are any issues reported around the time of the freezes.

What information appears in event logs (Event Viewer)?

Could be a driver issue. Have you got updated drivers for your keyboard/mouse from the manufacturer's website?

As for my issue with the mouse, I'm not sure what's causing it, and it doesn't really bother me as I know how to get it working again (other than the hassle of bending now and fiddling with its USB plug at the back of the computer).

I have not got update there recently, but both the keyboard and the mouse has worked since very long time.

But maybe it's an issue there.

Will look for updates.

The other day, I recognized a very loud bang from the room here.

I could not see anything when I came in here after the bang.

But now I get the idea, that maybe my issues should be addressed to the power supply in the computer.

Which voltages takes care of keyboard and mouse ?

Well, the voltages seems to be all ok.

I would isolate the issue to not be the installation.

Then I installed W7 on another HD.

But the issue persists!.

Maybe it is the graphics card. I have had several BSOD's with it.

But the main goal now is to be sure what adn where the culprit is.

Any ideas ?

Hi folks.

I'm sure I got it now. The big bang I heard came from an electrolutic capacitor -i'm sure-.

It is placed on the graphics card NVIDIA E7300

I'm sure it is an electrolytic capacitor.

For help to determine it is true, I ask you to help me have a look at the photo I have attached.

What say ?
