I am experiencing random freezing. Sometimes every few days, sometimes every day, sometimes every couple hours.
There is no warning, no error message, or any message at all. Mouse stops. Keyboard stops. Hard drive stops reading and writing (per indicator light). Ctrl-alt-del does not respond. I left it sitting for over 24 hours, and it did not resume. Only option is to cut the power.
There is no established pattern. Sometimes a browser and Notepad are open. Sometimes just a word processor. Sometimes other combinations.
I have checked Event Viewer under Application, and Hardware Events and there are no entries for the times in question. I don't know if there is anywhere else to check.
I have run Memtest86 for a day using just the default settings and it says Pass.
It has been going on for about a year, that I remember. I have been waiting for some Windows update to fix the problem, but that never happens.
What should I try next?
(Windows Vista, 32 bit, Home Premium)
