    PC just froze and a drone sound out of the speakers. Had to hold the button in to restart. Not good eh. Was on the net at the time. Restarted and running ok at this point.

    And question is?

    I would run sfc /scannow, Malwarebytes, virus scan......maybe more depending on results. Is that what you really wanted to ask?

    Oh, also look at SMART drive status.

    Malwarebytes, virus ok. Tried sfc /scannow and a small black screen flashed up and disappeared. I have noticed the CPUtemp is 50 c. Thanks for your help and how do i check the SMART drive status.

    Nothing unusual if it happens once in a while or at least not often. Most grief like that I run into is with Flash in browsers or programs trying to access something they shouldn't. If you run things Popeye told you and all is OK, don't worry.

    Click image for larger version thanks Count. do these figures look right to you. the reason i am annoyed with it all is with the constant freezes in facebook. done the flash thing, no different. got my mates mobile bb modem and connected it to this pc and it did the same. thanks again

    HW seems fine, If you are using C&Q, try with it turned off, sometimes it can have a lag when trying to switch to higher use mode.

    OK, let me clear it, AMD has this feature for long time now, it's SW way of power handling and may not react fast enough if not loaded in memory at the time. C&Q = Cool and Quiet and has caused me a lot of grief specially with even mild turbo or OC.
