Computer Freezes Completely

Q: Computer Freezes Completely

Sometimes, out of the blue while playing a game, my computer decides to completly freeze on me. My music stops playing, everything is froze, even my mouse won't move. I have a fairly new computer, about 6 months old, and wondering why it would be doing this. The only game it seems to do it in is flash based, so I was thinking that might be the problem.

Could the problem be that I got a different kind of RAM then what came with the computer? It's an Alienware computer, so if there is a problem in the hardware side I would hope this could be the only thing wrong with it.

So, what other info do you guys need to see, I am completly stumped as to how to fix this problem.

Preferred Solution: Computer Freezes Completely

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

You reallly need to list your specs including motherboard, cpu, video card, brand name and wattage of your power supply, drives....etc. etc. etc....you get the picture.

In the meantime, I would suggest that you monitor and list your temps for at-rest and under-stress usage. Another crucial area is that you need to check your voltages for this computer. Most modern day motherboards (since we don't know what you have, can't tell) have a program that will tell these readings. However, if yours does not, here are a couple of free programs that will help.

Sandra Lite Utility

or

Speedfan will tell you the temperatures and a whole lot more. It's free

This information should help us to pinpoint possible causes of your problem.

Hi all,For several months my PC has been frustratingly slow. However, I have dealt with it. Now however, when I click on "start" my PC will completely freeze, not allowing me to access anything. When closing programs, the desktop slowly scrolls back onto the screen instead of instantly appearing. I wish there was more details to share but there is none to my knowledge. I have recently ran spybot S&D and ran a virus scan but it has not helped. I have followed the instructions on the preparation post and here is the data in the DDS log.

Hello,

My pc keeps freezing after the start up, even in safe mode it freezes which leads me to believe that the problem is hardware related ?!

I have changed my memory ram sticks, I have re installed windows 7, i have checked all fans ( they all seem to work), and the computer just freezes, nothing works, not even the task manager, or the light on caps lock. Although when it freezes I notice a difference in the noise that the computer makes.

System:

AMD Athlon II X2 250 processor - 3.0 Ghz
4 Gb ram
Ati radeon HD 5400 series

And I am using Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there people, don't know if this is the right section of the forum for this thread. But since i've got no idea what the hell is happening, i figured this should do it. My computer completely stops! It freezes and nothing works. My mouse don't work i can't even turn my NUM LOCK on/off. Also i hear a strange noise (not in the cpu, but in my headphones) after that happens. The only thing i can do is turn off my computer. But one thing i've noticed is that after this happens, when i try to turn my pc on again, it doesn't make that *bip* from the boot. So i have to turn it off and on again, and when it boots for the first time, after this event, it freezes again while booting... So i turn it off/on again, and it works ok. At least for a while Please guys, i need help! My specs are: Asus P8H61, I5-2300, Radeon HD 5670, 2x4gb Kingstom. Sorry for bad english

Hi so I have had this alienware computer for about 7 years now. My computer has been having these random freezes for the past few weeks where I would need to force restart the computer (can't task manager etc), (mouse won't move). After restarting the computer I will get 5 slightly fast beeps. After leaving it alone for a while and trying again the computer works like normal. However this problem is really annoying especially when gaming. I have no idea what I should do exactly. Since my computer is quite old I'm not sure whether I should buy a whole new computer or just replace parts (I bought a new hard drive about a year ago). I am also using Windows 10.

I really appreciate the help

Hi everyone,

I ran ADW about a week ago, and it was not-responding and froze my computer. I ran 2 different times today, and it was also not-responding and again completely froze my computer when cleaning. I had to hard boot, because I had no choice.
1.Does anybody else experience this trouble with ADW, or just me??

2. Is there other source, not bleeping computer, to download it from, or it would not make any difference???

My Norton says ADW is safe for downloading. But it's unusable at this point.

Okay well, to put it shortly, I'm not too sure what to do with this issue I have. I recently upgraded both my motherboard to an Asus M5a99FX PRO R2.0 and my CPU to an AMD FX 8350 and I've been experiencing some complete freezes playing games like Battlefield 4, Shadow Warrior and Skyrim. In my old build (with a Gigabyte 880GM-USB3L and a Phenom II x4 955BE) the same games would perform okay and I never really experienced any crashes or freezes.

The problem now is that at what are apparently random intervals no longer than 15 minutes during gaming my cpmputer will completely freeze, audio stops, I cannot open the task manager and I even tried toggling Caps Lock and the LED on my keyboard wouldn't toggle. I would leave it stuck there for a couple of minute but nothing would happen, forcing me to hard reset the system.

I can use the computer for regular browsing and video streaming (I think I can alsop play some older games without freezing) without freezes too, which is kind of odd.

My PC specs would be:
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bitMobo: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0CPU: AMD FX-8350 (not overclocked)GPU: Nvidia GTX 660Ti GC 3GB (not overclocked either)Memory: 2 modules of some 4GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 RX 650W
HDD: Seagate ST2000DM001 (2TB)
So far what I've done to try to find a solution to the freezing is rolling back video drivers, then installing the most recent ones again, upgrading to the most recent version of the BIOS for my mobo and my chipset drivers,... Read more

A:Computer completely freezes when gaming

Check Asus for updated motherboard driver's and uefi updates. Also, after that check for video card driver updates and game updates.

I know similar problems have been reported on this forum and all over the web, but still I would like to share my experience and hear others' opinions about it, as in this case, maybe the problem starts from the NIC.



System:

MB: ASUS M5A97 R2.0
CPU: AMD FX 4100 Quad Core 3.60 GHz
RAM: 8 GB (2x4GB) 1866MHz
GRAPHICS: ATI Radeon 4850 HD
HD: 2 TB
NIC: (Integrated) Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller


OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit



The problem:

Computer becomes completely unresponsive; no BSOD, no error dialogs nor any sign of computer being informed about it's own unresponsiveness, it simply won't do anything and won't obey to any keyboard command. The only option is hard reset, after which everything works fine before next freeze.

Time between log-on and freeze varies.

I don't know how to describe the problem more clearly, please ask if anything is unclear.



The story:

I built this computer about a month ago. Very soon, I started to come up to abovely described problem 2 or 3 times a day.

At first I assumed it had something to do with watching videos online with Google Chrome as several times the crash coincided with youtube or similar websites running on one of the tabs. I also uninstalled Internet Download Manager as some would complain it was crashing their browsers (but obviusly that's a different problem and has something to do with its broswer integration feature, which I had disabled anyway).

My computer keeps freezing at random times. This freeze lasts until I reboot my computer. I've reinstalled all my drivers, except my motherboard or BIOS as I couldn't find them (here). This freezing has been happening for a good month and a half. Actually, ever since I've installed multiple new parts. The new parts I installed were a new FX-6300, motherboard, 8GB DRR3 RAM. My graphics card is a old HD 4000 series. I had a 600w power supply, but it blew so now I'm using a 450w power supply until I have the money to order a new one.



I was thinking it was the power supply causing the freezes because it might not have enough power to handle my computer. People also have suggested it being the RAM or the Hard Drive. Others have suggested it being Windows or the drivers. I don't think it's the drivers (I wish it was). I am going to reinstall Windows and hopefully that will fix it. I can't do that right now though because I do not have a USB or disc to do so. I'm completely lost on this.



When I say my computer 'randomly' freezes though, I want to emphasize the word randomly. Sometimes I'll have a video game open, Adobe Illustrator open, a Twitch stream running, with VLC media player playing music and a couple browser tabs open, while talking in RaidCall and it'll be fine for hours on end. Then the next time it freezes, I'll reboot and right after I hit my desktop, it'll freeze a couple seconds after that. Sometimes it'll do this for 5 times under a hour, maybe even h... Read more

A:Computer completely locks up (freezes)

This is a Custom-built system then. Sounds like your Power Supply is undersized for a custom-build Six-Core in my opinion. What Brand and Model is your Supply? Also, what Make/Model is your hard drive. That's the most common cause of freezing. Download Seatools or Datalifeguard from my signature and test. Also, download and Run Memtest. Corsair RAM is good; make sure to run it for at least 24 hrs. continously with no external usb devices other than usb keyboard or mouse plugged into computer.

You're troubleshooting leaves a little room to improve--so post back your results of those tests and we'll advise you further. This problem is more endemic of OEM (brand-name) built desktops and laptops after they get to be about 3 yrs. old or more.

Hello... I'm pretty sure my computer has gotten a hold of something pretty toxic as it has been freezing uncontrollably for the last few weeks. Not to sound too dramatic, but it's looking pretty hopeless. I was on the internet one day and all of a sudden everything froze.

Hi guys,

I'm having trouble with my PC. Sometimes the monitor doesn't receive a signal. When it does come on it freezes completely or i get the infamous blue screen of death.

Have attached my ZIP folder after the scan, any idea what i need to do to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD Crash. Computer completely freezes.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. Also upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the Sy... Read more

Ok about a week ago i bought a new video card. It is a EVGA Geforce GT 220 1gb ddr3 pci express card. I uninstalled the drivers from my old card, installed the new card and the new drivers, etc. Basically followed all the right instructions. Now here is my problem: The card came with a disc for drivers, etc. and it also has an overclocking utility. So, just say i turn my computer on and try starting a game like...Fallout 3(good game ) It will start fast and i can load my saves and play the game, however, as i start playing the screen in-game will start to flash little colored squares and dots all over the place and even some of the walls, etc. go static sort of. However, there is no framerate issues whatsoever. It plays as if nothing is wrong and yet the screen is messed up. Now here's the weird part, if i open the overclocking utility and max out the GPU clock, shader clock, fan speed, and set the memory clock to around 950-1000 then the screen problem in the games disappears and doesn't come back...however, this only works once maybe every day. If i shut the computer down and back on and set the overclock to the exact same settings and try and start the games, the screen will suddenly flash black then pixelate very badly and the computer itself freezes. What the HELL IS GOING ON? Why will the overclock fix the problem one minute but then make a bigger problem the next? Can someone plz help! thanks in advance...

Sure enough, when i open some random myspace pages, his computer will completely freezes. I am unable to move the mouse or use the keyboard. I've tried waiting hours and days for it to unfreeze but it won't. The only thing that works is a hard reset by holding the power button down for a good 5 seconds and then turning it back on. Also, this may be important. Whenever the computer completely freezes up, the lights on my USB drive and USB mouse go out. If i try to plug in any new USB device, it doesn't light up, seemingly not receiving power but the computer is still on.

At first I thought it was just a browser issue. Probably a firefox bug or something it seemed. However, i also eventually got this to happen in IE as well.

I've eliminated the following as the source of the problem:

Java
Flash
Shockwave

I can not find anything that could be triggering this and am wondering if somebody knows a way to find out why it is doing this.

or the exe and install on the machine

Ive been struggling with this for a while now and was unable to find any solution.
The problem is such:
One day out of no where my logitech camera software started freezing my computer. This means i couldnt do absolutely anything but restart. I removed the camera software, and now i dont have an IMAGING DEVICES tab in Device Manager but that may be normal, just thought id mention it.

I have tried reinstalling the software many times with the same result. I ran programs such as Registry Reviver to try and solve the issue.

The camera itself works well, i have installed in on another computer to test.

Today i found a forum that advised me to run Command Prompt in administrator mode and type
sfc/scannow

This scan concluded that there are corrupt files but the Windows Resource Protection could not fix them. It recorded these results in a log, which i posted below.

I really hope someone can help me with this, its important that i get this webcam running on my main computer.

Also it wont allow me to even reinstall the webcam software anymore cos it freezes when close to completion.

Yesterday, I started having my computer freeze while I was playing a game. I didn't get a BSOD or any kind of error message. The computer just completely locked up. If a sound was playing, it got stuck. It was completely unresponsive; clicking didn't work, and neither did ctrl+alt+del. I had to turn off my surge protector's power or hold down the PC's power button to turn it off. It seems pretty random. At first I thought it might be a problem with the hard drive the game was on, but then I tried a game that's on another hard drive, and it worked fine for quite a while until it eventually froze the computer as well. Plus, I've already had an experience with hard drive failure, and I always got a BSOD in that situation, unlike now. Also, Hard Disk Sentinel says all my hard drives are at 100% health. My next guess was the graphics card, but I'm not getting artifacts or noticeable framerate drops. I did just have my display driver stop responding and immediately recover while I had a Twitch stream playing at the same time I was playing Skyrim. Firefox crashed, I restarted it and the stream, then I went back to playing Skyrim and the computer froze shortly thereafter.
 
I found another thread with someone having a similar problem. They were asked to post a Speccy snapshot and the results from a MiniToolBox test. I've already taken care of that, so I'll post those now.

So last week I was on the interwebs and my computer froze. The mouse could move but that was it. No windows responded, nor did the start button, and ctrl alt delete didn't do anything. Then the screen started to blink about once every 2 seconds. It proceeded to do this until I forcibly turned off the computer by holding down the power button. I then turned on the computer again and the screen was glitchy. By this I mean icons on my desktop would disappear until I clicked on them (by which I mean clicked the empty spaces where the used to be) the start button and task bar would not reappear even if I hit the start button, and if I opened a window, it would show me the top half of the window and the bottom half would show the desktop (or lack thereof). Also my background picture was gone. I left it alone for a few days (I thought... maybe it overheated?) and it was working fine for the last two days. Then today it froze completely. No blinking screen, the mouse disappeared, and it just stayed like that until I turned off the computer. Then I turned it on and it worked for about twenty minutes. The screen blinked once, and then I got the BSoD, but it only flashed for a moment and then the computer rebooted. This has happened another two times in the last hour. I got a new harddrive a few months ago, but this is the first sign of any trouble I have had since it was installed by a friend.

Any suggestions?

A:Computer Freezes Completely or Blinks Once Then Flashes BSoD and Reboots

Hard to diagnose from this distance, but it sounds as though the display adapter may need to be replaced. Guess there's a chance it might be malware or something else, but my first guess is the video card.

About a year ago my PC started locking up randomly and after some troubleshooting im still having the same problem and have no idea what to try next. When my PC freezes the monitor is just stuck on the "last frame/image" and any audio that was playing is instantly cut off. When I try to push caps lock during the hang, the light on my keyboard doesn't change. The HDD light on my tower will either stay on or off depending on its state when the hang occurred and the light on my USB network card will continue to flash as if it is still sending/receiving data. I never get a BSOD so I have to hold down the power button to manually reboot the PC. The hangs can happen anywhere from 5 times a day to once a week. After rebooting the PC I always have the same 3 events in event viewer(6008, 41, 1101), which are all logged at the time the PC reboots. Event 1101 says "Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0"Event 41 says "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."Event 6008 says "The previous system shutdown at 4:33:58 PM on ‎7/‎16/‎2015 was unexpected."The strange thing about event 6008 is that the time stamp for when my computer "shutdown" is always around 20 minutes before my computer actually froze.

I installed Win7 Pro x64 on my PC Monday evening.
The computer is physically unchanged from when Vista Business 32bit was running on it with which it was absolutely stable.

The problem is that every 1 hour or so the system completely stops forcing me to manually reboot it. It does not give any error it just stops. No minidump is written. All diagnostics show no apparent error, the only thing Windows registers is that it was shut down incorrectly.

I updated Intel chipset drivers (This one), audio drivers from the Realtek homepage, ethernet drivers from the Realtek homepage and through Windows Update and installed the newest Nvidia drivers (191.07).

The problem occurs mostly during browsing but that might just be because I'm browsing most of the time. It happened both with Opera 10.01 and the newest Chrome. The problem began quite soon after installation before I had installed any software except for Opera (and maybe Acrobat Reader) and before I had updated any drivers.

I'm really out of ideas now
I read all the other threads about similar problems but none gave a solution that I haven't already tried (updating drivers).


[Edit:]
Changing the Energy Management setting to High Performance let's the system run stable for a week now.

When I boot my Win 7 machine and logon the desktop loads just fine, but when I click on the start button it freezes and doesn't come back - I can't click on anything.

I think I've managed to narrow it down to being a problem with the DHCP service by disabling all services in msconfig and reenabling each one in turn. Everything was fine until I enabled the DHCP service - even starting manually after it has booted caused the issue to come back.

I'm stuck as to where to go from here though - any suggestions?

(the following is copied from a less tech orientated forum I use, however, is still what's happening)

Like, completely unresponsive.

I'll be doing anything and it will freeze (note: not BSOD). I originally put this down to my video card overheating (as it usually occurred whilst gaming, because of it's crappy fan), and only occurred once every so often.

However, when I moved houses first time I noticed when viewing a folder with lots of thumbnails that it froze instantly (as it was loading the thumbs). So I put it down to hard drive or RAM (not knowing where the thumbs were stored in memory [swap or physical]). So I pulled out the 256 stick I had in and played WoW on 512 for 1-2hours or so to try and get it to crash, but didn't. (WoW is painful with only 512 ram though)

I THEN put it down to the stick of ram being faulty (it was oooold). So I put in a different 256 stick, and after moving the second time, it began happening again.

(ugh god I'm confused now)

Bought a 1gb stick and replaced the 256 with it. Happened again, removed the 512, happened again. It's now gotten to the point where on a fairly warm day, it will crash 3-5 times/day (when WoW is open, at which point I usually don't bother again).

I've checked the event viewer in admin tools but absolutely nothing is there.

Should be noted that I currently lack a chassis fan, and two RAM slots.

Hi, I have been searching to a solution to a mouse problem I've been having for over a week, with no luck. Basically, I have a custom built Acer, the model number for the motherboard and case is ASE380-UD421A, the processor is an AMD Athlon 64x2. So anyway, this computer was running fine for over a year running XP and latest service packs and updates, when suddenly the mouse starts to freeze. This is a basic cheap USB mouse I was using when this happened. Moving the mouse around, for just a second after a clean restart would move the pointer for about an inch and than the pointer would completely freeze, (The mouse would not function at all, so this is not just about a frozen pointer). So if I unplug the mouse from the USB and plug it right back in, it would move maybe half an inch or so and completely freeze again, over and over. I have a USB to PS/2 converter for my mouse, so this was the first fix I tried, and after a restart this seemed to work for a minute or so but than the pointer started jumping around all crazy and opening programs from the start menu. To be clear, the mouse only acted crazy when I moved it, like moving it upward would repeatedly left click and move it to the left super fast, for example. So after a few minutes of moving all crazy, the pointer would again freeze.

Googling this problem, the next step I tried was a basic system restore, I went back a few days and still had the problem, so then I restored it back over a month ago, and still had th... Read more

I have a 2-day old Dell Studio 1555 that randomly freezes 10-30 min after startup. It doesn't matter if the computer is idle or if it's being used... it just freezes. Dell has been completely useless in helping me figure it out. I've run all of the diagnostics and they're all coming out clean. I've even reinstalled windows.

I'm wondering if it would help to reformat the drive and then reinstall windows again. The first time I didn't reinstall the drive.

Anyone have any ideas? Also, it's been a long time (almost 10 years) since I did this kind of stuff, so I'm assuming that I can't just type "format c:" from the command line anymore. Any help?

Thanks,

A:Windows 7 Completely Freezes

Hi.

You probably have too much, what I refer to as "junk" running with Windows. Or maybe it needs better drivers.

Type system information in the start menu search box. Hit enter. Ctrl+s on the screen that opens.

Rar or zip the file then attach to a post using the paperclip. I'll have a look.

My computer will completely freeze. It seems I can use any program for awhile but if i use my browser i will eventually get an odd "search" result page that is not consistent and then the computer eventually freezes. Ctrl-alt-delete, doesn't work, nothing...I have to manually reboot by turning off the power. I have run Spyware Doctor and the results are random, recently it identified several problems and threats that it categorized as high and i believe one was a trogan.pidief or something. i wish i had more detail but the problem is when i tried to fix the issues the computer froze. Now, I can't get through a full spyware doctor scan again -- it just freezes before it identifies any problems so i can't say what the exact problem was. i have also run malwarebytes' anti-malware but it does not find anything.Here is my hijackthisl log.

Help! I have an HP G62x (from Costco) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit that randomly freezes completely. Intel Core i3-370M + Intel HDGraphics, 4GB DDR3 Memory, 500GB Hard Drive.
When I say completely I mean nothing works, it does not respond to anything.... mouse, touchpad, Escape key or Control/Alt/Delete, etc. I have to force a shutdown.
And when I say randomly, I mean it can be while working online, or simply at startup, or after just walking away from it and it's showing the desktop, or when the screensaver mode has kicked in, or when playing music... Who Knows! Not in any one situation.
It's into it's second year of the warranty and Costco tech support is asking me to do an OS reinstall but I'd like to avoid that. Costco's 'Concierge Tech Support' along with HP via conference calls, have run me through the 'Usual' time-killing basics of testing.... all with no clues to the problem. It seemed as if they were ready to do the Reinstall from the beginning... and still are. Seems there is now no other 'Step 2' with them aside from the Reinstall of the OS. To be honest, it kinda sounds like a pattern they follow with an old familiar problem. And apparently it will take several weeks for them to send it back and there's a probability that nothing really gets 'changed' or replaced if they can't find a problem. Of course, this just gets me closer to the end of my warranty period (I also have to leave t... Read more

My computer will be running along fine, then with seeming randomness it will stop completely. The mouse will stop, programs stop, everything but the power button is unresponsive. If my computer is making a sound before it stops it will make a sound as though repeating the same bit of sound through the speakers in an infinite loop. The first time it happened I was playing Supreme Commander, but as it has happened repeatedly without that game running, don't know if that is relevant.

I Have already backed up all my important data and have completely reinstalled windows from a restore disk, and that didn't help, which makes me wonder whether this isn't a hardware problem. I have run windows memory diagnostic with no faults found. I have run Scandisk with out error as well.

I managed to copy the crash dump before it froze on me last time, and ran it(on a different computer) through windows debuging tool with the following result, which I haven't the know-how to decipher:

Just completed a new build with the below components and am having a serious issue that prevents me from doing anything.

MoBo: Z390 Aorus Ultra
CPU: Intel Core i9 9900k
GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz C16
HDD: Samsung 970 Evo SSD m.2
PSU: EVGA 600W
OS: Windows 10 Pro

If I let the computer sit and idle, nothing happens. If I move the mouse too much or turn on Netflix, it completely freezes and doesnt come back.

What I've done:
1) updated Drivers
2) cleared temp files
3) ran a memory check
4) adjusted virtual memory
5) ran a system file check
6) ran a HDD check
7) attempted to enable XMP profile, PC failed to boot
8) pulled the GPU and ran directly from the MoBo
9) tried running with only 2 RAM sticks in the A1 & B1 slots
10) pulled 600w PSU, used 750w from previous build (no change)
11) removed CPU to ensure all was seated well, cleaned up thermal paste and reapplied

I tried 1-6 based of an internet search of the issue

I tried #7 based off the bench test conducted. Bench test said the RAM was underperforming and that I should enable the XMP profile.. I enabled the preset profile and the computer gave me a failed to boot error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, please advise if you need more info, screen shots, etc.

Ok, so yesterday I was installing VLC player to my computer. However it may have been a virus and the computer froze after installing (that or because of other factors).

When I booted the computer back on it froze right on the first screen of boot up when it says press F12/del to enter bios. I cannot access bios as it completely freezes.

After this I took the hard-drive off the computer, and it still freezes, so I am not so sure if this was a virus after all. Perhaps the mother board has gone bad?

Any ideas how to fix this?

Also the keyboard lights are completely off, other than one flash when scanning. All other divices do work, like mouse etc (though not much you can do with them.).

Huge thanks for helps!

I built a pretty high-end computer two months ago. For about five weeks I had no issues, but then I started getting random periodic freezes. It's not exactly the same every time, and I don't really know how to investigate a total crash. The specs are:
i7 4770K
Asus Sabertooth Z87
Asus GTX 770
16GB DDR3-1600 Crucial RAM
Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD
Windows 8 Professional
 
The freezes have happened once or twice a week, about seven times now. I'm not running anything computationally taxing or a game or anything when it happens, usually all I have open when the freezes occur are:
Firefox
Notepad++
Pidgin
(sometimes) Steam
(sometimes) Libre Office Calc
(sometimes) KeePass
(sometimes) Media Player Classic Home Cinema
 
I don't think any process is particularly busy when it happens, but I didn't have task manager up at the time. Often I'm just switching from one window to another when it happens. Typical CPU usage is very low. RAM usage couldn't be more than 6 GB at the most. According to SpeedFan, temperatures are also very low on the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, and hard drives. The fans aren't busy when the crash occurs but I think maybe spin up slightly faster a few seconds after, can't say for sure.
 
Several of the freezes have had these symptoms: after leaving the computer on for several hours doing nothing, I come back to it and it is responsive for only a few seconds before suddenly stopping. The cursor won't move, the keyboard does nothing, even just pressing Caps ... Read more

Hi and to Bleeping Computer. According to your system specifications, the motherboard comes with an integrated video chip so might as well switch to that output first in order to test if the problem persist. Try downloading Speccy and then install the program.  To post and publish a snapshot of your PC.. In the Menu bar, click File -> Publish Snapshot. Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard. On your next reply, right-click on a empty space and click Paste on reply box then click Post. Download MiniToolBox and run the program. SelectList Last 10 Event Viewers, List Installed Programs and List Users, Partitions and Memory Size then click Go.A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply.
