Hi BC,

I have a problem with my built computer. My computer keep freezing up at random spot, most of the time at the start-up. I can boot into safe mode and the recovery CD sometime if it doesn't freezes up half way. Sometime the computer would work fine for a day and next day it just go berserk.

Specs:
Windows 7 64-BIT
AMD Phenom II X2 560 [Had Phenom II 555 but I accidentally dropped it and broke it, but the 555 also had the same problem]
G.Skills Sniper (2)4GB DDR3
GigaByte NVIDIA 9500GT
PSU: Eagle ET-PSVTX500-BK
Asus M4A785TD-M EVO
500GB WD SATA

Voltage:
CPU temp: 33C
MB temp: 26C
VCORE Voltage: ~1.328V
3.3V Voltage: ~3.3V
5V Voltage: ~5.1V
12 Voltage: ~12.2V

I also attach the latest and only mini dump I can find and it direct it to the hardware.

Hi

I am new to the forum this is actually my first post :)

But i have been playing around with computers for many years. Its basically a process of elimination, you have already swapped the cpu so that rules that out. I suggest running memtest for several run throughs. There are a few ways to get hold of this. Easiest is a boot cd called ultimate boot cd http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ it has a few other tests like hdd etc which might be worth running.

Yes running the mem test is a good idea. The process of elimination I use to save time, would include pulling all the ram then test one stick at a time for a while to see results. If all the ram is good I would take out video card and run onboard video to see the results. then CD-ROM etc.

I use software testing alot on laptops, but with PCs you can tear it apart and put it back together pretty fast.

Do mem test with one stick of ram at a time, it takes less time.
