|I decided to try and triple boot with winxp, 7 and 8. Laptop previously was running fine on win7.|
Now since i installed XP, and then windows 7 the laptop randomly freezes, at first i thought it was the vga driver, because it was happening just after i installed it on win7. Well uninstalled the driver, but the freezing still persists. I've even tried to reinstall windows, and do away with the triple boot, tried all 3 versions of windows on their own, they work for abit, then freeze. So i thought was the HD, maybe a bad sector on it. Ran a couple scans on the HD, found no bad sectors, had to change sata mode to IDE so scans would run. Next i tried memtest for my memory, well ran 2 passes and no errors. Now I'm stuck I don't know of any CPU or motherboard tests i can run.
PS. btw is no BSOD, just freezes.
