But I worry about those popups and such. My advice is to complete Grif's advice at
Then check your heatsink compound work on the new install. I have lost count of clients that think compound is optional.
Finally tell me your OS and driver install method. Some are using Microsoft's Driver Update button which is not good enough.
I have an interesting issue. I bought a second hand mobo and cpu, because my previous mobo malfunctioned, and I have following problem:
Sometimes my PC freezes completely, so I have to shut it down or restart.
The most time I waited to unfreeze is like 5 minutes, after that I decided to restart it.
I noticed that it freezes almost always when I go to a certain site which streams movies. When I try to play a movie few pop ups show and when I try to close one of them PC freezes.
I have adblock and tampermonkey installed, but pop ups show anyway.
I checked Task Manager, and whenever I enter the page with the movie (even before I press play) I see 100% of CPU usage.
It froze few times more when it was idle.
I also checked if it's freezing while playing games, so I installed NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 and everything was ok.
I installed Windows again but the problem remains, tried to test it in safe most, it also hang when I tried to play a video online.
Could you please help me to find out what could be the problem for this?
