How To Troubleshoot this problem:
A blue screen of death caused by Ram might be caused by a mismatch of chips which are having different speed. i.e, mixing 90-nanosecond Ram with 80ns Ram will usually force the computer to run the entire Ram at 80ns speed. And this will lead to crash of machine. So we may have to take care of Ram before implementing it with our motherboard.
#3 BIOS settings
Every motherboard supplies some sort of options which is known as bios setting. A typical way to access these options is by pressing F2 key at the boot time.

#4 Hard disk drives
After some time probably a week or two, The information which is stored on a hard disk get piecemeal or fragmented. The fragmented information causes a problem of screen freeze.
How To Troubleshoot Hard disk drives problem:
To Troubleshoot hard-disk drives problem Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Defragmenter
This will defragment the Hard disk and will avoid the problem of Screen freeze.
This is the most common problem of system crashes, Virus makes a system instable, even some of the virus (Boot sector virus) deletes the boot sectors from the hard disk, so a system can’t boot next time.
How To Troubleshoot viruses problem:
The first step in troubleshooting viruses problem is install a good antivirus software. Antivirus softwares usually prevents virus from executing malicious tasks on a system.
Sometimes a virus comes in a fully undetectable form also known as FUD, And it can’t be traced by an antivirus software. So in those cases we should have to make a windows start up disk.
