my computer is relatively new and keeps freezing with tasks that aren't at all demanding, here are my specs...

i5 2500k (not overclocked)

Gtx 560ti 1.25G

500g hard drive (dont know what type)

P8Z68-M PRO motherboard

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)

4GB Kingston ram

800w power supply

i dont get it because my computer runs battlefield 3 easily on ultra with a steady 55 frame rate, and then locks up at random points on such things as Facebook or even going through my documents, any ideas, is it a faulty processor?

i do have warranty but i thought I'd ask the public first :)

Could be any number of causes - overheating being one of them. Check to see if all fans are working and nothing blocking vents (in and out)

FReeezing PC

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

  4. faulty memory stick try memtest http://www.memtest86.com/

  5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

  6. driver conflicts especially grahics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment
