Hey guys.


Well i just bought a computer on Monday, then i got on Thursday but was crashing a lot then i sent back to the store where they assembled all and i picked up today, now i got another freaking problem.

I want to know if you guys can give me a help with this problem.


So computer Specs:


Windows Pro 8.1 64 Bits

Asus Z97 Deluxe (NFC & WLC)

4x8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz

1 TB SSD Samsung 840 EVO

3x HDD WD 4 TB 7200 RPM

Core i7 4770K 3.6 hz Overcloked to 4.0 hz

3x Corsair Air Series AF120 LED Blue Quiet Edition Case Fan

1x GTX 780 TI 3 GB


Corsair Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
SuperNOVA 850G2 850 Watt Gold Modular ATX 12V Power Supply ECO Thermal control
ok now my problem is that if i try to install my mouse, headset, webcam drivers the computer freezes and i can't use my mouse/keyboard then if i press the reset button on the case take a while to restart.
My windows is installed on the SSD and the rest of the stuff like this drivers i was trying to install in both ssd and hdd both freezes in any of the discs.
Can anyone help me out with a solution for that please?

Try to disconnect those 3x HDD WD 4 TB 7200 RPM drives  from the system leaving just the SSD for your system to boot and find out if the freezing still persists while the HDDs are disconnected.

 I'd also undo the overclocking to see if that makes a difference.  In addition I'd check the temperatures with something like SpeedFan because overheating can cause undesirable things.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
