Hello, I'm running on windows 7 64-bit, and i just recently reformatted along with upgrading my video card and upgraded to a bigger hard drive about 2-3 weeks ago. This problem never happened the first week and now suddenly it does. Basically what happens is whenever I play a video game (League of Legends is mainly what I play) or watch a stream full screen, or even a YouTube video full screen, or play audio files, my computer freezes as well as my sound loops whatever was heard at the moment of it freezing.

I have tried many things to fix it such as, Ran scans like avast anti-virus, malwarebytes, and removed whatever was detected on my computer. Still the problem returns, I've also checked and updated my drivers (What I hope is all of them) and the problem still happens. The only thing I haven't touched is my BIOS because I can't find the BIOS for my extreme3 970 that supports windows 7 64-bit, and I know that if not done right you can really mess up your computer or so I'm told. Also I lost the cd for my motherboard :upset:

If anyone could help or even give ideas as to what the problem is that would be much appreciated!

PS. One of my buddies told me that it could be a problem with my memory is getting backed up and not refreshing or something like that? If anyone could help, again it would be much appreciated.

Gday.
As well as the information requested by Phillpower2,

Ran scans like avast anti-virus, malwarebytes, and removed whatever was detected


Was there a lot of items detected? Where they all removed?
