Vista freezes and hangs randomly RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hello,

     

    My Windows Vista Ultimate freezes or hangs randomly(sometimes it can be 3 times a day  and sometimes I have a week without a hang), while using Firefox, playing Games(much less frequently). Int's not a typlical hang because I can move the mouse cursor,and the circe opposite the coursor goes on , i cannot click on anything, the keyboard does not respond , every flash object in FF freezes too. The only way is to reset the machine. I tought it was because the RAID and incompatible drivers(there was a log that suggested that) but after updating the to the latest nothing changed. I updated almoset every driver in my system but also the same goes on. I've updated the system with every fixes availabe but still nothing. Thos fact drives me crazy. Is there anything I can do to solve that? I got used to Vista and I don't want to get back to XP

     

    MY PC:

     

    C2D E6300

    Gigagbyte GA-965P-DS3

    Gigabyte GF 7600 GT SPII

    OCZ Special Ops 2x1024 MB RAM 800 MHZ CL5

    SB Live 5.1

    2x Seagate Baracuda 7200.10 RAID0

    Vista Ultimate

     

    Thanks for your help,
