Hi, hope every one is good

computer spec, win 7 64 (fully updated). all drivers are updated, and bios is upto date
asus p6t delux v2, i7 940, 12gb ram ocz 1000w power supply (bought 6 months ago)
main drive- kingston ssd vnow series 128gb , could it be this?

I hope someone could help me and would really appreciate it

recently we had a builder round, and the electricity tripped while my computer was on since then my computer constantly freezes randomly no given time really (could be guessing at this time really as updates have occured as well recently)

An example is i could be browsing the web on a variety of browsers or just using the computer in general, the computer will lock up sometimes allowing me to move the mouse but not being able to do anything, and sometimes not being able to move the mouse,

it will then un freeze about 2-3 minutes later?

and when it frezes i could press ctrl alt & del, then the task manager will pop up when the computer has resumed it self

i recently ran memtest on all the ram after around 50 hours of testing there was an error on one piece,

another thing it could be possibly one of the updates i have run for drivers bios etc, but id be clutching at straws trying to find out

i have norton 360 and malwarebytes on, both find NO Viruses,


so i retested one at a time in the same dimm slot, no problems? i then tested in pairs still no problems? i then retested all and this time i had no problems? strange? but only retested for 30 hours

at the bottom of the memtest screen, it said pass complete no errors,

Any help would be great

Thanks so much


EDIT:
Ive just noticed something when it recenly crashed, a small popup windows appeared saying windows is not responding, or something similar?

FWIW: Anytime there is an unexpected/hard shutdown of the system...there is a chance that Windows files may become damaged. As a general procedure, it is (IMO) smart to run the chkdsk /r after such, in an effort to overcome such possibiliity.

I would try running the chkdsk /r command, then see how the system behaves.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-elevated-command-prompt/
Please read this link and use Method 1 to start a command under Windows7
There are detailed pictures to show you how to do this - Now Type chkdsk /r and press enter, then reboot your computer -

Note that there is a space between k and / This could take foom 1 to 2 hours to complete the full 5 stages (please let it run)

Thank You -
