Tests so far performed in addition to the above already stated:
1/ FURMARK - Nil errors after 20 minutes temp did not increase more than 73 degree - Screen shot uploaded to Dropbox
2/ PRIME92 - Nil Errors - Log uploaded to Dropbox
3/ Crucial SSD only installed last year - I cannot find a scanner for it from the crucial website, the problem I am having was happening when prior to me installing this drive. I by the person was told by the person I took the PC it was my hard drive, being the Western Digital drive, I brought the SSD and he installed it and am using that as my main hard drive. He left the WD drive still installed although I do not use any of the data on it as I have it all backed up onto other drives. Obviously the problem continues to happen after the SSD was installed. So I am pretty positive it isn't anything to do with this drive though if you would like me to scan it I will, what program should I use?
4/ Western Digital HDD scan on drive passed both Quick and Extended tests - screen shops uploaded to Dropbox.
5/ VMT Memory test passed nil errors – Log uploaded to Dropbox
6/ I ran a online malware scan just so it is done, I usually run Kaspersky for protection. The scanner came up with 10 items though I think they are minor I have uploaded the log to Dropbox.
7/ I have tried using the Intel Scanner from the link http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19792&keyword=%22cpu+stress+test%22&DownloadType=Utilities%2c+Tools+and+Examples&lang=eng
Though it doesn’t run, I uninstalled it and re-installed it but no luck. I have also tried a couple of the other links and I get warnings so wanted to make sure its ok to run?
8/ The computer is not over clocked, and I have uninstalled MSI Afterburner and Riva Tuner... These programs were installed after reading another forum to try to fix my problem.
9/ I have tried to find an update for the motherboard though the last driver release on the website was on the 25/10/25 and it says it is for Windows XP though I am using Windows 10 64 bit... So do not know whether i have this update already or should attempt to download...What do you think?
Funny enough today when I started the PC it booted into Windows and after a couple of minutes did its usual think and froze.. I restarted it and it has been up and running while I performed all the tests etc... Ita about 10 hours so far without freezing that is unheard of!!!
