  1. Hi I have windows 8.1 and it keep freezing. The whole screen freezes except my game. I have to wait 2-5 minutes for it to unfreeze.

    I have a Asus CG8270
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
    32 gb ram
    intel core i7-3770

    This may be caused by a failing power supply

    I often have this error in my event viewer after it freezes
    Event 10016, DistributedCOM
    Could this be the problem?
