    Hi,

    It's your Razer causing issues. Recommend to throw it away then replace it with something else. This will save you massive headaches now and in the future, because the company makes some of the poorest drivers ever.

    In addition, it's probably a good idea to uninstall Teamviewer until all issues are cleared.

    You can visit Realtek's site to download/install the HD Audio Codec Driver on the right side of their main page.

    With the above advice completed, you'll be happy. Otherwise, the machine is in great condition software-wise. Best of luck.

    Edit: As I always do, I was just double checking things for you. This is the first time I've even seen the actual name of the hardware but NOT using the proprietary driver. Very weird.

    Code:
    Name    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 1C00
    Manufacturer    Intel
    Status    OK
    PNP Device ID    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C00&SUBSYS_B0021458&REV_05\3&13C0B0C5&0&FA
    I/O Port    0x0000FE00-0x0000FE07
    I/O Port    0x0000FD00-0x0000FD03
    I/O Port    0x0000FC00-0x0000FC07
    I/O Port    0x0000FB00-0x0000FB03
    I/O Port    0x0000FA00-0x0000FA0F
    I/O Port    0x0000F900-0x0000F90F
    IRQ Channel    IRQ 19
    Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\pciide.sys (6.2.8250.0, 13,80 KB (14 136 bytes), 18.02.2012 7:20)
        
    Name    Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 1C08
    Manufacturer    Intel
    Status    OK
    PNP Device ID    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C08&SUBSYS_B0021458&REV_05\3&13C0B0C5&0&FD
    I/O Port    0x0000F700-0x0000F707
    I/O Port    0x0000F600-0x0000F603
    I/O Port    0x0000F500-0x0000F507
    I/O Port    0x0000F400-0x0000F403
    I/O Port    0x0000F300-0x0000F30F
    I/O Port    0x0000F200-0x0000F20F
    IRQ Channel    IRQ 19
    Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\pciide.sys (6.2.8250.0, 13,80 KB (14 136 bytes), 18.02.2012 7:20)
    So you'll want to head over to Intel.com to download and install the latest Rapid Storage driver for your chipset.

    The above advice still applies all the same.

    Intel downloads - but none for Windows 8 - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...age+Technology

    Code:
     Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\pciide.sys 
    (6.2.8250.0, 13,80 KB (14 136 bytes), 18.02.2012 7:20)
    That is a Windows 8 CP driver - http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=pciide.sys

    Right, Windows 7 iaStor.sys driver needs to be installed.

    Alright, I changed my razer keyboard for some random analog keyboard and freezes still continued. I usually have chrome open when those freezes happen. And about the iaStor.sys, i cannot manage to install it because setup program always says my system doesnt meet the requirments even when in compability mode.

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview


    I'm really starting to suspect something may be up with Chrome. I've noticed that since switching back to Firefox I hardly ever see a freeze anymore. Given that the issue seemed to correspond with my OS drive going to 100% use but 0 kb read or write, I'm thinking it is doing something with it's cache that is not Win 8 friendly...
