    Hi,
    Earlier today my computer had a rather nasty shut down with no battery and then this started. I have checked around and I have done everything I can think of to see what could be causing the screen freezes including: Checking Processes for something hogging CPU, checking event viewer system and application for excessive errors, running memory diagnostics and running in safe mode but I have had no luck. What could be slightly more alarming is that I am fairly sure that this freezing problem is actually occuring outside of Windows, in the BIOS I could still notice the freezing. So yeah... Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I was going to suggest a hard drive test until I read your comments regarding freezing issues even when in the BIOS Setup -- a faulty hard drive wouldn't cause that, but a faulty motherboard would.

    Yeah unfortunately that seems like the case which is weird because I had it replaced only about a year and a half ago. I was planning to upgrade anyway so I might as well do that now.
