Hello, when the problem happens, it starts with my audio become distorted and slow, making the mouse also slow. After that the mouse freezes along with all other things going on and the audio loops back and forth, forcing me to do a hard restart. This problem happens anywhere from a day to a few week. Sometimes when windows is updating during shutdown, it freezes up also.

My specs are:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
ASUS M4A87TD EVO Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131647R&Tpk=m4a87td%20evo
Corsair TR3X6G1600C9 6GB (3x2GB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145222
Sapphire Radeon 6850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908
CorsairTX650 650W PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849
Cooler Master HAF 922 Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus Heatsink/Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073
ASUS DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

I have:
-Replaced the Mobo
-Replaced the RAM
-Replaced the GPU
-Replaced the PSU 3 times
-Replaced the CPU
-Replaced the Hard Drive
-Disconnected the DVD Drive
-Ran Memtest overnight with no errors
-Changed HDMI cord
-Unplugged front audio and USB ports

Please, I need help or suggestions, I've had this problem for almost a year now

Hello, when the problem happens, it starts with my audio become distorted and slow, making the mouse also slow. After that the mouse freezes along with all other things going on and the audio loops back and forth, forcing me to do a hard restart. This problem happens anywhere from a day to a few week. Sometimes when windows is updating during shutdown, it stays stuck on the same update step.

I have:
-Unplugged front audio and USB ports
-Reformatted my hard drive many times

Cpu temperature is 33C, Mobo 33C, Hard drive 26C, Graphics card 36C. During games, my graphics card goes to high 40C to low 50C (48C-52C).

Please I need help or suggestions, I've had this problem for almost a year now, this is a re-post of my old thread. Mod Edit: Merged topics, deleted duplicate content, PM sent ~ Hamluis.

Have you been using the same cord for the PSU every time you've replaced it?

The only thing that jumps out at me is the case itself possibly shorting something. You've already done so much replacing, might as well try replacing the case too.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

I would update all my drivers and update my bios. Only update your bios after reseraching and or if you're comfortable doing it.

I have the latest BIOS already, would the case cause such a problem to the computer even if I unplugged the front audio and USB cords?

There really is no sure answer to that question. You can certainly try it. I do believe a case swap is in your future, though.

I should note that I'm suggesting this because you said you changed hard drives at one point, and I'm assuming that involved a OS reinstall and update rather than a cloned partition.
