Hi,

1) Is the issue specific to any particular game?

2) Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?

You may perform the following methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

Method 1: Reduce Hardware Acceleration

I would suggest you to reduce hardware acceleration and check if it helps.

a. Click Start, type personalization in the Start Search box, and then click Personalization in the Programs list.

b. Click Display Settings.

c. Click Advanced Settings.

d. Click the Troubleshoot tab, and then click Change settings.

e. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

f. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider two notches to the left.

g. Click OK, and then click Restart Now.

h. After the computer has restarted, test the game.

Method 2: Check in new user account

I would suggest you to create a new user account and check if it works correctly. If it works in a new user account, then probably your user account may have been corrupted and would need a fix.

Create a user profile http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Create-a-user-account

Follow the below provided link to fix the corrupted user profile.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/Windows7/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile

I would also suggest you to check in event log for more information related to crash, here are the steps:

a. Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.‌ If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

b. Click an event log in the left pane.

c. Double-click an event to view the details of the event.

didn't work, and my pc also freezes on the desktop

Stefan,

First cləar up your Temp File/Cache.

<<http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/delcache.htm>>

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cləanup

Best and əasier to use - CCləaner.

Download the basic (Slim) build via

<<http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds.aspx>>

The basic (Slim) build does not contain the disgusted Toolbar

DO NOT USE ANY Advanced cləaning options.

DO NOT TOUCH THE REGISTRY. At ləast not for now.

<<http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=25513>>

Reboot

You may try to run the Windows 7 Performance troubleshooter and check if it helps.

<<http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Open-the-Performance-troubleshooter>>

Open the System Maintenance troubleshooter

Hello9 StefanVoordehake,

Go into Power options. Click on "Choose what the Power Button does."
The options are Shut down or Do Nothing.

Next, click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
Click on Change Advanced Power Settings. You can change all of the different power options from this dialog box.

Next, since your computer is only 2 months old, it would still be under warranty.
I would check with the manufacturer to see if they can run some diagnostics to determine why you are experiencing issues.

Hope this helps.

Marilyn
i have seen this on an other forumpost and i changed it around multible times, but it didn't help.
and my pc comes from America and i am Dutch (Nederlands)
so i can't realy go to the manufacturer and there is always a way to fix thing,
the problem is HOW?

PS: when my pc freezes one of the LED lights stops blinking:

- the little sun icon LED stays on
- the cylinder form icon LED isn't blinking anymore and is off

Hello StefanVoordehake,

Since you have had problems from the beginning, the issue is either going to be with the hardware on your computer or possibly corruption in the system files.

Run SFC /scannow to see if you have any corrupt system files.

Click Start
Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD
Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: sfc /scannow

This will check for any integrity violations and fix any corrupted operating system files.

Restart your system

Now run chkdsk: This may take a while to run so you may want to do this in the evening.
1. Disable any security software before attempting to upgrade or do a clean install.
2. Make sure your computer is updated (devices and applications)
3. Disconnect any external devices before installing.
4. Check your hard disk for any errors:
Click Start
Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD
Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: chkdsk /r /f
When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and attempts will be made to correct them.

Again, I suggest you contact the manufacturer through their website or by email to run diagnostics. Really seems to be hardware since the LED lights are not even blinking.
Or you can return the computer from where you purchased it.

Please let us know your status after you have completed the tests.

didn't do anything..(got no error) does it create a error report or something?
and were kan i see that?

Hi,

To determine which files could not be repaired by the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
1.Open an elevated command prompt as described in the previous step 1.
2.At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

Note: The Sfcdetails.txt file contains details from every time that the System File Checker tool has been run on the computer. The file includes information about files that were not repaired by the System File Checker tool. Verify the date and time entries to determine the problem files that were found the last time that you ran the System File Checker tool.
3.Type sfcdetails.txt in Search programs and files, and then press Enter.

The Sfcdetails.txt file uses the following format:
Date/Time SFC detail
