I have a PC that works GREAT up until the point when it freezes RANDOMLY. When this happens I can't use the mouse or
keyboard and I have to reboot it manually by pressing reset on the tower. I updated all my drivers w/ PC Pitstop's Driver
Alert, I scanned for spyware to no avail w/ Max Secure Spyware Detecter and BitDefender, And I tried switching my RAM
sticks and restarting my PC using each one alone. None of this helped me figure out what the problem was. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know how!Here's my system specs...
