OK, I'm not sure if we can call this a complete freeze. Now it "freezed" for two short seconds.

 

It doesn't really freeze, because a right click still works, but nothing else (I can't click on the start button etc.)

 

Both time it happened in Chrome, at the beginning with CoreTemp. I think it is a Chrome Issue and not an issue by my hardware. But how can I be sure about this?

Hi,

 

Check if running Google Chrome without Hardware Acceleration makes any difference...

Look in the Reliability Monitor for a Chrome event.

No freeze since 28.03.2015. And I haven't changed any setting in Chrome.

Strange.

Could have just been a one off glitch.

Look in event viewer to see if there are any repeat warnings.

Some repeated warnings about DNS Client events, but this is caused by our internet which crashed often times because of bad weather.
There are several errors with Service Control Manager. Don't know what these are. I think they are related to my USB/printer.

Still no freezes. Yohooo

Thanks

Service Control Manager errors are often because a service failed to start withing a given time.   You may have luck tracing them using the Reliability Monitor, though if the computer is running OK, might not be so important.

I was again too early happy >_>

Now, after a week without freezes, it freezed again. And again I had Chrome opened.

I can still click in Chrome (go to Websites etc.), but the rest freezes.

I'm really confused now. lol

Cheers

PS: I'm quite sure it is software related, and not hardware related.

I think I will use FireFox from now on to see if it is Chrome related.

Have a read about using Reliability monitor to see if you can spot the culprit causing the freeze..

I'm running into problems. Reliability monitor doesn't show any error.

I can regenerate the freeze with starting CoreTemp. So, some minutes ago I have installed CoreTemp again. When I start it my PC completely freezes. I can still start some programs (not every program), go to taskmanager etc. but the rest freezes complete. I had to do a hard shutdown. It looks like that the CPU tact goes down that everything is quite slow. (You know when the CPU is too hot that the CPU tact goes down to get cooler - it feels like that) When I go to TaskManager it shows the CPU utilization is 40 %, not that much. As I have CoreTemp installed it showed me a Temp of 33 degrees (But it could be that the program also freezed).

I don't know what to do. In Games everything runes fine until I start CoreTemp (or sometimes it happens in Chrome). What can be the issue? I have installed SystemExplorer.

Remember, the CPU hasn't got replaced since the online store didn't found an issue there. But I think and hope it's not related to a hardware issue.

Now, again, when I start CoreTemp the system completely freezes.

But before I started CoreTemp I also started SystemExplorer. Sadly, SystemExplorer also freezes.

Try a different Temp Program.

Run the Intel Diagnostic tool.   Download the help file, first and read. > https://downloadcent...ol-64-bit-#help
