Computer slows or freezes several times a day

  1. Hello,

    I am hoping that I can get some help solving this issue. Thank you in advance.

    Computer freezes up several times a day. It might come on and run all day fine with few very slow downs. However at some point of the day it will go to a black screen with arrow. Sometimes Ctrl-alt-delete will bring the system back and sometimes it won't

    Most freezes or slow downs are while using Google Chrome and Outlook. Sometimes if I wait they will come back. Other times I turn off computer and use safe mode with networking. I can just go into safe mode and do restart and it might work fine for 5 or 6 hours.

    This has been happening for about 3 weeks and I have done several recovers and it helped temporarily.

    Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and Microsoft Security Essentials are the protection tools used.

    CPU: i5 M480, 22.67 Ghz, 8 Gb of memory - 2 sticks, Windows 7 home, 64 bit operating system

    Information from Event Viewer. Was not able to solve this on my own.

    The power supply may be failing...

    Can you post your full PC specs? Make sure you are accurate.
    22.67 Ghz does not exist at the moment in time on consumer level CPUs, or any as far as I know of. (maybe you ment 2.67ghz)

    A few things are possible...

    Was your computer build by a manufacturer? If so list the model.
