Alright, as always, unsure if this is the correct place.
I made a thread about random hangs a while back but had no luck solving the problem but now I think I've isolated it a bit more.
Moving along, some basic information:
Windows 10 64bit Home Edition (upgrade from 7, then did clean install, now on a new hard drive as well)
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz 2.49 GHz
2gbs of RAM*
Alright, so I had 6gigs of RAM (2 x 1gb and 2x 2gb) when the freezing/hanging started. About a week or two ago the computer randomly restarted with no warning (shortly after booting up) which I read was a sign of possible RAM failure (among other things). So I took out the 2x1gb sticks and ran for a while, hang happened about the same time if not a little later. Switched out the 2x1gb sticks and put in the 2x2gb sticks and I had one freeze (during huge install/stress) but other than that it's ran fine for the last week or so.
Assumed it was RAM so I bought some new ram as well as upgraded (maybe a mistake) to 2x4gb sticks. Running just the 2x4gb sticks, hangs happen within 30 minutes of booting up.
Switch back to the 2x1gb sticks and no problems over the last couple hours.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.
