Hello everyone - new to the forums so please be gentle :huh:

I recently upgraded to Win7 Ultimate edition and most everything runs well, however I keep experiencing random computer freezes. Sometimes I am online and the system will freeze, however most of the time it freezes after I start a game. This doesn't happen all the time but a good 8 out of 10 times after I start my computer after being off for a couple of hours or more. Usually after a restart/shutdown the system works just fine and doesn't freeze until the next time when I start the computer again after letting "rest".

I have searched online for some possible solutions but nothing leads me to find the cause. I've checked event viewer and I see some Hard Disk errors and a couple of Service errors (lirsgt and atksgt) but I have no clue as to what application these 2 services are related to so I can't reinstall. In short, I am lost, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Haven't posted any logs until I am asked to do so to avoid spam.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me!!! :huh:

I had multiple freezes but it turned out to be a problem with the video card drivers. Download the latest drivers and see if your problems vanish.

Thank you for the esponse Rainbow, however I have all updated drivers for my hardware, including my video card, but still having issues. As a matter of fact I started having issues even before I update to the new NVidia driver I have. Any other ideas?

Hi ,did you try checking your hard drive for errors yet ,open your start menu,click on computer,right click on the hard drive you want to check(if you have more than one)click on properties,than click on tools ,at the top click on check now,in the window that opens check both boxes and click on start,windows can't check your drive while your using windows,so it will ask if you want to check for errors next time you start your computer,click on "Schedule disk check",then close all your programs and windows and restart your computer,chkdsk will run before Windows starts let it complete all five stages then Windows will start,if you have any corrupt files,or bad sectors it should repair them, cheers

Hope that solved your problem nothing more annoying,than random freeze ups. Sometimes that's caused by trying to run games that your computer can't run properly or a sign of age,it don't hurt to run chkdsk every once and a while .Usually if there's corrupt files your machine will tell you to run a Diskcheck,well good computing,cheers :huh:

Well sleepwalker, I may have spoken to soon. Computer is freezing again after a couple of days of peace, so back to the drawing board. Some errors I see before the freezes:
