if i go to install an older game (halo CE for instance) it'll run the setup program, but then itll completely lock up before i can even click to install
if i go to run Audacity it freezes
sometimes when im playing music and doing other various tasks it freezes.
this computer has 6gb's of RAM, and i know that im doing multitasking enough to cause it to freeze. In fact, all of my freezes have come when generally the computer isnt being heavily used.
Now, being more specific the Event Viewer shows I have 10 critical errors in the last 7 days. They're all the same thing. Kernel-Power is the source, with event ID number 41. Unfortunately through my reading, ive found that all this means is the computer was shut unexpectedly. but that of course is because it froze, and i had to do a hard shut down.
I've checked my registry using CCleaner, and it did find a lot of errors and things but it fixed them all and im still getting this freezing issue.
Funny thing is, i can easily test it just by trying to install Halo CE (a game than ran flawlessly a matter of weeks ago before i started having this problem).
It literally will freeze EVERY single time i try to install that game. and its weird its like i can here the CD drive slow down before it freezes. its odd.
I ran malware bytes and it found nothing, i also used my avast anti virus and im clean.
I tried re-installing my video driver and audio driver. didn't work.
I tried cleaning the registry .. didnt work
I cant think of anything else as to how to fix this.
