I've been looking everywhere for somebody who can advise me with a solution to my problem and although this might not be the most appropriate place for this, hopefully somebody can help.
I built my computer about 8 months ago. For the first 5 months it worked flawlessly but recently (April/May) it has been randomly freezing. Here are some details:
Happens most often while ANY browser is open.
Doesn't matter if the computer was just turned on or has been on for a day.
Is completely random. May occur twice in 5 mins and then not occur for another 30 mins.
Freeze occurs in two periods. First it freezes for about 20 seconds, then it unfreezes for about 5, and freezes again for 20 seconds or so.
I've tried uninstalling all kinds of software, reformatting, installing 64 bit of windows 7 etc and am starting to believe it's some kind of hardware failure.
I can move my mouse and sound usually works while the graphics are completely frozen.
More information can be provided. Can anybody PLEASE help me?
