Hey guys, new here & after hours of tedious browsing I figured I'd come ask for help.
I've recently built a mid-range system & game wise it's great, but I've been having the same issue.
Intel Core i7 920 2.66ghz
6gb patriot g series 1600mhz ram 9-9-9-24
320gb 7200rpm Seagate Barracuda sata HDD
HIS Radeon HD6850 IceQ x Turbo
Corsair H50 Hydro series
The issue I'm having is that sometimes, during a youtube video, an online streamed video, photo-editing or even browsing pictures in My Pictures, everything suddenly freezes, I can't move the mouse, keyboard, the screen remains frozen on whatever it was on at that time, and even after waiting it doesn't come back to life and I have to reboot.. On the rare occasion it comes back to life, it does so with a 'beep'
I've tried re-formatting completely, to no avail. I've ran a disk check, an SFC in DoS, several memtests, defragging and I've purchased a new PSU, updated my bios, chipset, and all other drivers but I just can't get it to stop.. I am at a complete loss. All of these tests provided positive results, no errors. I've monitored my temps and my GPU idle at 34 with a high end of 62 when fully gaming, and my CPU idles at 37 and never goes past 60 when fully gaming, does anyone have any idea at all? The only ones I have remaining are that the Hard Drive is on the way out, but it doesn't make sense because the disk check reports zero errors. I've tried checking event log for errors but I don't understand half of the error codes and on googling them they're apparently common and not a problem. :S Thanks in advance!
P.S) I've also reset the CMOS, returned BIOS to defaults ect.
