Random freezes; not in safe mode, though.

    Random freezes; not in safe mode, though.

    I recently installed a new GPU. After installation, I got a weird error about the C# line compiler crashing every 2 or so minutes. I then did a reinstall, or a refresh as Win8 calls it, and then the old error went away. However, a new error occurred where my computer completely freezes up and I have to hard reset. I learned that this does not occur when I boot in SafeMode. I'm on my phone so Ill post my specs in a bit. Any advice?

    Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (even though you're not having BSOD's):

    At work we run diagnostics on every system that we take in for repair (before we even start working on it). At a minimum, please run the free diagnostics here: Initial Hardware Diagnostics. For more in-depth diagnostics, please run those listed here: Hardware Diagnostics
