    Still freezing !

    Removed the sound card and removed all drivers and cleaned up with driver sweeper.

    Turned on Realtek audio from BIOS and then installed the latest drivers.

    Stable till now.

    But one problem cant get sound from my rear speakers.

    Tried all settings. it detects the jack but when i test it, no audible sound comes from rear speakers.

    Try this: Realtek

    Should probably also do some diagnostics on the HDD to see how it is. A good chkdsk /r from elevated command prompt would be beneficial, for each partition. Like this:

    chkdsk /r C:

    chkdsk /r D:

    etc...



    You can force a bsod on purpose so I can see the entire driver profile of the machine. Maybe there is something you have installed that is making it funky:

    Forcing a System Crash from the Keyboard

    After bsod is caused: Run the tool in the top thread and its linked thread to collect logs, then make a zip how it shows and attach the zip here.

    Hey when i was removing the creative driver. The system froze again. I thought it was a regular hang up like previous times. but this time a blue screen came and it was written "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" .

    After that i restarted and checked, the driver was not removed. Retried and this time it was removed without any problem.

    So this time a dump file was generated, uploading it.

    Yep, that bsod was certainly caused by the Creative driver. All other drivers are well and there is no further issue involving them to speak of. (See why I say Creative is notorious?)

    Was trying the same combination of testing which generally freezes the machine (Chrome + Windows Media Player) and it freezed again

    Will run the disk check via command prompt as you told.

    Also in any case can RAM be the culprit. I have a doubt on it.
