This problem tends to happen most when playing video games, but it also happens at random times when I am not doing anything demanding on my computer.
I get short bits of lag (visual, and sound lag). It starts up at distanced intrevals, but slowly gets more frequent. Eventually, the computer either freezes, or I get a blue screen.
I have cleaned up the dust in my computer numerous times. It didn't really help.
I have updated drivers after doing a full system restore on my computer (along with updating other windows related things), that did not help either.
I thought getting the drivers updated had solved my problem, but when I was playing a video game today I ran into the same issue. Which video game it is is not really a detail, since this happens with almost all games.
I had originally thought this was related to CPU temperatures, but I installed a program that monitors that and everything was within the 40-50 degree range. I'm told this is normal from my friends who get higher temperatures and yet do not run into this problem.
I'm on windows 7.
I will provide more info if needed. This problem has been ongoing for a few months now.
Computer randomly starts lagging-up/freezing. I sometimes get a blue screen and I sometimes don't (meaning I have to restart the machine myself).
Problem happens more often when I am gaming, but it can also happen randomly at any given time.
Thanks in advance to any who can help.
