Ok so i am having this problem and i can not seems to figure it out myself.
At the moment when i use my computer it's just randomly freezes.
Time span will be different everytime.
I dont get an error or what so ever.
I was running my system on windows 7, and currently on Windows XP.
When the freeze occures my screen just lock itself on the last image. mouse is stuck, and in some cases the audio is going crazy like a squicky sound. so what have i done so far to fix this problem.

Updated all driver. bios included.
Did a Memtest86+
Installed a new OS

The cpu temp is around 52celsius.
on startup there is no differents in the beep the computer gives.

So i am hoping does anyone have any clue what it could be. i'm out of options.

Re: Computer keeps crashing

Post the make/model of the PC. If custom built then post the specs.

MB-CPU-RAM-GPU-PSU brand/wattage

Post the temp and voltage readings from the BIOS?

The cpu temp is around 52celsius.
What program are you getting this readings from? Is this at idle?

Re: Computer keeps crashing

Its a custom build.

Motherboard: GB-M57SLI-S4 rev2.0
AMD64 x2 6000+
4x1GB Kingston DDR2
Nvidia Geforce 9500GT
Zalmann 750watt

The voltage i could not read in the bios or could not find it anyway.
the cpu temp in the bios was at 46.c after crash again.

hope this is enough info
In windows xp however it does give a quick blue screen and then restarts and goes back to normal.
It goes to fast for me to read any info. but a blue screen is never good.

Re: Computer keeps crashing

Boot into the BIOS > go to PC Health Status > you should now see the temps and voltages (+3.3,+5,+12v )

Right-click My Computer > choose Properties > click Advanced tab >under Startup/Recovery click settings button > uncheck Automatically Restart >click OK

Now instead of restarting hopefully you will get the BSOD error messages.

Ok so i got another blue screen while i was doing a cpu test. (prime95)
so that let me believe that my proccesor was broken in some way.
i downloaded speedfan and while i played a game the cpu temp went pretty high for this amd. 65.c in a matter of seconds into a game.
I guess its safe to say at this point that my core is just overheating.

i'll just buy myself a better cooler for the cpu and see if that will do it. since my cpu seems to be working fine ofc untill its overheated :)

Re: Computer keeps crashing

BSOD's occur as a diagnostic tool. posting the codes you see on the BSOD can help identify the problem(s).
Speedfan is for fans and rarely gives accurate Temp & Voltage results. The Bios is the most reliable source for that info.
CPU's are pretty bullet proof and are rarely the cause of problems.
Did you run MemTest on ONE stick of RAM at a time and did you let it make several passes to properly heat the RAM.
I would try removing two of the RAM sticks and see if your issue continues.

I know it's fairly rare that a cpu is giving up a problem like this.
But i have put a new cpu cooler in today.
And have not had any problems again what so ever.
And i have sure been stressing the system for the last few hours.
with the old cpu cooler the bios temp on idle was already 54.celsius wich is way higher than it should be. since this proccessors max heat is around 60 to 65. so i can only imagine if i was playing a game of some sort it would go highly above it.

Guess i got one of those rare cases. thnx for the support :)
