that's the problem i don't know what my psu is. It's an alienware prebuilt. Yes i know stupid of me to buy alienware and i regret it every day. For as far as i can tell everything is conected good and secure. My freezing just started yesterday tho, never had a problem like that before.

I'm hoping it's fixed. Booted up a game and no freezing. So i guess it's fixed, Thanks.
