The problem I'm experiencing is something that I haven't encountered before. And i have had a lot of experience with computer problems. So any running application just randomly freezes. (Games: Counter-strike, StarCraft 2 etc, normal applications: Firefox, Google chrome, explorer, winrar, utorrent.)
Yeah so anything just freezes, and when i try to close/click on the window the wheel just spins. Normally when you click something that don't respond you a message pop up saying that it does not respond and asks if you wanna close it right? or end the process. In this case it does not happen. It can stay frozen up to 15 min and after it stops everything works like a charm until next freeze. And during the freeze the HD-LED light is glowing like a candle, like my harddrive was copying shitload of stuff. But it is pretty silent though.
During the freeze i always try to bring up the task manager and end the process but sometimes the task bar freezes when i attempt to right click it, then anything i try to click just freezes.
Things that I have tried: Formated 2 times with 2 different Windows 7 discs (works fine on different computers so that cannot be the problem) I restored my bios settings to default, and I have opened up my case and cleaned the harddrive, checked the cables, and even switched cables between harddrives. I have tried to boot up the PC without ANY external stuff like USB-memorystick and stuff like that, and without network connection. I have done chkdsk /r I have checked the taskmanager for strange processes that may be running.
So I have never had a problem like this with my PC before, it just started after I formated it.
any help would be appreciated!
I will shoot a video while I'm playing starcraft so you can see it for yourself.
EDIT: Here is a video when it happens
