Hey

 

I’ve been having trouble with my PC freezing to the point of having to manually shut down the computer (via the off button). There is no indication of when it would happen and usually results on my screen being stuck, usually when I'm gaming but happened once while i was watching streams.

 

I recently formatted my computer (Windows 7) to see if it would help but to no avail. I’ve also had numerous Memtests in the past and no error messages have arisen (this was a while ago).

 

Any help would be much obliged!

 

System specs:

 

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium Home Edition 64x

 

Motherboard: ASRock n68 vs3 fx

 

GPU: Nvidia Geforce 650 Ti

 

CPU: AMD FX™-4170 Quad-Core Processor

 

HDD: Hitachi HDS721010DLE SCSI Disk Device

RAM: 8.00 GB DDR3 single channel  I  NB freq: 2209.7 MHz  I DRAM: 535.7 MHz

 

PSU: CoolerMaster 650W GX2
Ive attached the "admin file" to this post.
 

EDIT
: oops, forgot to add psu.

Let's start by uninstalling Bonjour (from Control Panel...Programs and Features).

You an reinstall it through Apple Software Update - but don't do it right away.

See if that stops the freezing

 

Also, uninstall the nVidia drivers on your system.

Then try the system without them - and see if that stops the freezing.

Then install the latest nVidia drivers for your system from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

and see if the system still freezes

 

CD-ROM errors - temporarily disconnect the CD-ROM from the motherboard and from the PSU. (error could be caused by the drive itself - or by the CD/DVD that's in it).

See if that stops the freezing.

Ensure that there's not a CD/DVD in it when it's not being used.

 

There are also some controller errors (these point at the hard drive).  The controller is shared by the hard drive and the CD/DVD drive.

As such, I'd suggest updating the storage drivers on the system.  These are most often the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and will be available at the AsRock support website for your motherboard.

 

There is evidence of some BSOD's - so please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

Ive attached the two files as requested. Will go on with the other suggestions you gave and see if there is any sign of improvement.

Cheers!
