OS Locking Up Without Crashing

  1. Hey Guys,

    So I've had this problem with my computer for a while now where my computer will freeze including the cursor and clock. The system becomes totally unresponsive and the only way to shut it down is to hold the power button until it shuts off. Sometimes it boots perfectly fine afterwards after asking me to either launch Start-up Repair or Start Windows Normally, sometimes it starts up but does not boot and resets itself after which it boots, sometimes I get a blue-screen then it resets and boots. It still boots and is usable unless I either place Netflix or Pandora, play video files while using 3DS Max, and especially if I am using ZBrush.

    Every time it crashes it just freezes and all of the lights on my peripherals turn off. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing Windows, RMA'd the motherboard, replaced the graphics card, and run Windows repair tools but nothing has worked. Any chance you guys can help me figure out what's going on?

    May be a faulty memory issue
