I have a new computer that was built by someone else. Now it has errors and has ended up in my shop.

It has the following:
Gigabyte H67MA-D2H-B3 motherboard
Intel Core i3-21200 (sandy bridge) cpu
2x 2gb Corsair DDR3 CM3X2G1333C9 memory
WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 1Tb HDD
2x Sony Optiarc DVD RW AD-7240S

It has had heaps of issues, mainly random reboots, freezes, and the most prolific - the screen freeze/flicker that is in the picture I have linked to here:

http://postimage.org/image/1mhfls95w/

The motherboard has been replaced, which fixed some of the reboots, but the screen freeze/flicker pictured above is still occurring.

The only thing I have found is this link http://communities.intel.com/message/130595 where there is an apparent problem with the drivers for the onboard HD Graphics (Intel HD 2000).

It is now running on an Nvidia GeForce GT 220 1Gb (for testing purposes) and so far seems to be running ok.

So, to me, it seems as though there is some unresolved error with the Intel Core i3-2100 chip and it's on chip graphics (and associated software). I cannot find anyone else with my exact same problem, except for what the guys wrote on the intel forum. Wanted to post an image of the screen freeze because to me it seems quite unique. It generally happens at very random intervals. For instance, I was running the computer from about 10am yesterday and did not see the screen freeze until 7.43pm.... but today, it has happened at least 3 times, and it is not even 11am yet!!

I was running the latest video drivers from the gigabyte website (15.22.4.64.2418). I also tried the latest ones from intel (15.​22.​1.​64.​2361) but under both drivers they both caused the screen freeze.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With the new video card in, the PC is now locking up, but not showing the weird defects on the screen.

The eventvwr shows the VSS service stopping is the last log before the crash......??

FIXED - Replaced Ram with different brand and all is fine. Used Kingston DDR3 1333, 2x2gb. Also swapped motherboard with different brand, but with old ram got same video defect. So definitely RAM this end.

**Note** The ram never tested faulty using memtest.

Hope it helps.

We found the same. When we put in a PCI-E vid card, it would still freeze, but without funky video picture. As reported above, RAM replaced and no more probs.

Cheers.

I'll keep that solution in mind for my future Sandy Bridge builds.

I was having the same problem on a new Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 board with an i3-2105 processor. I had assumed that it was a video driver problem as well, but thanks to the input from this forum, I realized that it was a problem with the RAM that I was using. I was using OCZ DDR3 1600 RAM that is rated at 1.65V with 8-8-8-24 timing. The default RAM setup in BIOS was 1.5V and 7-7-7-16 timing. After adjusting the BIOS settings, I have not had a problem. Thanks for all the input.
