  1. Well here is my problem, short and simple.. My computer freezes. maybe its the ram? i have just built a new computer and here is the ram that im using (Corsair XMS3 Xtreme Performance 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit) I have tried my own trouble shooting like putting one of my stick of ram into a different frequency, and its been freezing less than before. It just freezes at random times, the screen freezes cant move my mouse or anything. can someone put an end to this problem! oh yea if you need my specs here they are:

    AMD phenom 9600 x4
    geforce 250 gts 512mb

    Have you run any tests on your memory?

    I'd suggest running memtest, you should let it run for at least 7 passes to rule out faulty RAM. This can take a while, so you might want to leave it running overnight :)

    Here is a guide on how to run the program

    Let me know how you get on
