|My computer hangs regularly ever since I've started using it (Not just a hiccup or temporary stall, it completely freezes & needs to reset only to see it hangs again). I've tried re-installing Windows several times, fully update everything, used all kinds of diagnostic tools, but none worked so far. My biggest suspicion is my only Caviar Green drive, which might have low performance so it can't run really well. If so, does overclocking the drive work or should I buy a reliable drive ? If not, what could be the exact cause ?|
The hangs are pretty unpredictable, sometimes it hangs as soon as I logged in, sometimes it's after an hour or so. I checked the jumpers, changed the SATA and power cable but the problem still persists. Most time when it hangs, the HDD light lights up until the computer is either shut down or reset. I used Memtest86+, built-in Memory Diagnostic, Hiren's Hard drive Scanner-thing. Nothing showed up.
Needs help badly, thanks.
