Windows 7: Computer hardlocks randomly

08 Aug 2015   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
Computer hardlocks randomly

So I have a custom computer and that build is on my account details but I built it, installed windows 7 and non stop am having issues with the computer hardlocking. I decided to attempt to isolate the issue and I took out the graphics card and was fine for over 2 days. During those 2 days I had amazon ship me a replacement card. I put that one in and now I'm instantly hardlocking again. My computer according to estimates takes like 350W and my PSU is 550W so I don't think that's the issue. Would appreciate help. Thanks.

Does it happen if you put it in another one of the pci-e x16 slots, and what model is your PSU?

Computer locks up randomly
Guys I've got a problem with a Dell 1525 laptop I was hoping someone could offer some insight into. Recently, say the last two weeks, the computer has started freezing randomly even when it is just sitting idle doing nothing but showing the desktop. The mouse will still move, but the computer...
