I am trying to figure this out like 2 months. the problem is windows freezes between 15 min - 4 hours randomly. After format It seems stop (can't know because of random) but after install things (looks a like after install visual studio or skype) problem came back, It seems software problem pc service couldn't find problem on psu/ram/vga.he couldn't test mainboard and cpu.

my configuration is,

i5 750
MSI P55M-GD41
Nvidia 8800 GS
2x4 GB Corsair XMS3
Creative SB Audigy

after Its freeze, If I listen music/movie sound stop for 2 sec then continue without problem. but screen is frozen.

When I check Event Log, I see too many "Service Control Manager 7036" I don't know if this is normal. Also tried disable all startup services except microsofts.

Event Log

The Stop error BugcheckCode value is listed as zero. maybe I cause the Kernel-Power by shuting down the pc.

I tried to stress pc, my cpu temperature hit up to 100 C° I used some time like that, also played games still no problem, but while surf on internet or watch a movie or just check some folders can make pc freeze. what I achieved is this is nothing to do with stressing pc.

Check this KB article and check the steps from scenario 3: support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504 –  magicandre1981 Jan 27 '13 at 19:51
    
I checked the document, "The Stop error BugcheckCode value is listed as zero." and "You might also see this scenario if the computer is “hard-locked” and therefore unresponsive to any input, and the computer has to be powered off." these are fits for me. but I couldn't do the caps-lock test because I don't have leds on my keyboard. wireless keyboard need to save battery I think. –  Mert Jan 27 '13 at 19:59
    
check all 5 steps from scenario 3. –  magicandre1981 Jan 28 '13 at 6:45
    
I checked all and all clear. still problem occurs. –  Mert Jan 28 '13 at 18:07
    
If it also happens after a complete reinstall my guess would be a hardware failure. Seems it has nothing to do with overheating or generally insufficient power supply. Maybe a broken mainboard, graphics card or power supply. –  André Stannek Jan 28 '13 at 18:59

as I figure it out, It was overheating problem. I changed the thermal paste on cpu, problem got away in some days.
