Hey guys, I have tried everything I can think of, but my boyfriend's computer continues to freeze up during games. Battlefield 4, Borderlands 2, Saints Row, Trine, State of Decay, Unturned, Ace Combat Nearly everything. Sometimes Alt-tabbing right when it happens will avoid needing a hard-shutdown, and can end task in the task manager. I have clean installed the drivers, reinstalled windows, replaced the hard drive. I have done stress tests on the RAM, CPU and GPU, Nothing heated up to a bad level, Everything was fine. I am clueless at this point. I did try putting the 3 RAM sticks I have in to the other channel, I normally have it 010101, 4GB each, but when I put 101010 it wont boot up, just black screen, I dont know if that could be related. There was an incident with some soda getting dumped in it, I did a good cleaning of it and it has been working fine for the last year even after that, but maybe it's getting up with it? Would a problem with the motherboard/ram slots/ram cause it to simply freeze in games, but not lock up the computer? I really hope someone can help...
