I started having an issue with my computer about 2 weeks ago. while browsing the web the cursor would suddenly start to stutter than distort becomming a graphical artifact. the system would than lock up and become unresponsive untill a hard boot.
i figured well this one's easy a memory stick went bad. i ran memtest 86+ for about 48 hours with no errors.
i figured it was just a fluke untill it started happening more frequently.
i began running diagnostic software prime 95 ran flawlessly
futuremark also ran flawlessly. so i torture tested memory graphics and CPU. smart self tests and check disk found no problems with the hard drives either.
so at this point i have an issue that seems related to web browsing that can freeze my entire computer but am completely unable to reproduce it in a controlled environment.
the lack of a crash dump or any windows error logs makes me wonder if this could be viral or a bad driver however i am not skilled enough to read the detailed logs generated by SFC or OTL and i could definatly use some help digging into my OS and figuring out what is causing this very focused and specific problem that looks like hardware but doesent seem to actually be hardware
