I was playing EU4, and then suddenly everything froze. The screen still shows what i was doing, it's just totally frozen, along with my cursor. Nothing will respond, nothing changes. just a picture remains


This happened earlier in adobe audition when i clicked something, it may have been a coincidence. Regardless, my computer will freeze totally and i have to force it to shut down by holding the power.


When this happened once it said some issue about my CPU clock speed being 0 mhz, so i just told the bios to put it to default (was oc'd) and now its at default, the issue still happens at random. I assumed that maybe the issue was caused by something other than the cpu, i feel that it's the ram but i know nothing.


I tried to run all types of memtest and none work. I tried different usbs, mem test does not work on my computer. it either doesn't even boot, just skips and goes to windows, or on the non + version freezes on the multicore check (8th sentence). So i never see the menu. I'm done wasting my time with that program. 




When i start windows now my whole desktop is missing, once the desktop was black and there was just some fail to run window open but i don't know what it was for. i had to lock the computer and unlock it to get it to fix. Sometimes all my stuff loads in very late, including everything on the task bar.



When i was deleting some small ass files earlier, and extracting a folder at the same time it took forever, at least a few minutes when it should have been like 5 seconds. 



thank you

What sort of overclock did you have?  Was it very aggressive?

Overclocking can damage the processor - or it can shorten it's life-span so that it dies early.

But beyond that, I'm not a hardware expert - and I'd suggest posting over in the Internal Hardware forums:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/ 

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
