  1. Hello, I have a very annoying problem that has happend a lot lately. My computer just randomly freezes, when I am playing games or just browsing the internet.

    What happends is everything stops can't move my mouse, press any keys, sound cuts off. And I have to restart my PC and then it happends agian later. It only happends about once a day every singel day. I have been trying to find a fix for it but nothing have worked so far.

    Here are my Computer specs:
    CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti Overclocked
    PSU: Corsair AX 850 W
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB
    Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro socket-1155

    Edit: This have only happend for the past month now, all of my parts I have had for about a year.

    This may or not be your problem. Nvidia last driver 320.18 cause my computer to have random freezes. I end up going back to the old driver before it. This stop the problem. Now they have a new driver release 320.49 . So I updated to it and everything is working fine.

    At the time you updated your drivers did you do a clean install or just update them? If you just updated them you might want to try a clean install and see if that helps.
