    hi everyone,

    first of all mery christmas and a happy newyear to you all.

    well here it comes, my problem is the continuation of 2010.

    i have a pc wich i configured myself. now all these parts are brand new.
    the problem lays here, since i installed everything on and in my pc it freezes up at random times up to 10-15 times a day.
    you can do the math of rebooting the pc yourself if you know that this problem occurs from octobre.

    im at the end of my latin here, ill number up the solutions i already tried.
    1) i formatted the pc more then 20 times already (no lies), the pc refuses to install XP, so i use Windows 7 home premium 64 bit instead.

    2) the pc went back to the shop, they tried everything they could by replacing and testing every single part of hardware. the recognize that there is a problem but they couldnt solve it. they stress tested and benchmarked the pc and all but are powerless. its a problem for the books they said.

    i sincerly hope that you guys could provide me with a solution, im really fed up with this built and it costed me allot of money and i couldnt enjoy it once.
    it comming so close that i want to smash it up and throw it out of the window.

    my built is:
    - motherboard: Intel dx58s0
    - processor: Intel I7 950
    - graphicscard: Nvidia Geforce GTS250 2gb
    - memory: 2 x 2GB ddr3
    - hdd: 1TB hdd
    - power: 1000W powersupply
    - 5 fans for the heat.

    sincerly sturmer

    ps: if you need more info plz lett me know

    When you say freezes you mean the screen freezes and does the mouse freeze too?

    How do you recover from the freeze?

    Have you tried just using One stick of Ram?

    What we're you doing when it freezes?

    @megabyte: well first of all thnx for the reply.
    now when my pc freezes everything freezes mouse included.
    my only way to recover from the freeze is by rebooting my pc (up to 15 times a day, no lies here)
    yes, i tried using one stick but the problem keeps comming.
    the problem occurs from the moment it tries to boot (before the windows logo till after 5 mins, 5 hours or more of use). its totaly random, there are times that it freezes on boot, or when loading a internetpage, while updating,....

    i think you understand that im on the edge of a meltdown here.

    kind regards sturmer

    Well it seems to be an intermittent problem and they are hard to locate

    Download and install hwmonitor
    and see what the temps etc are. Download the 1.17 setup, english on the righthand side.
    ....take a reading when not running the game CPU(core) and GPU Video card and post them. (Just a screenshot of results is fine)

    what do you suggest that i do? or could do best?

    - formatting is no option (did it more then healthy for the pc without results)
    - the shop is stunned with the problem
    - taking out part by part is done and tested resulting with the know problem

    i just dont know what i can do anymore, searched several hours on the internet with no luck and im starting to be fed up with it.
