    I just replaced a fried motherboard today, as well as adding some more RAM and a sound card. All is well now except one minor detail of browsing the internet makes my computer freeze up. I can play WoW with full settings and no problem. I can browse a little but it seems inevitably after a short period of time my shit will freeze up, the sound just keeps repeating whatever it was on at that time, G15 keyboard goes dark, cant move the mouse, etc. Loading lots of pictures into a browser ala Unlinker is fine, but when i start to scroll down the page it locks up.

    I updated ethernet, video, whatever drivers I can think of and no change. Ran the scan from malwarebytes.org, cleared all kinds of temp internet files, nothing changes. This will happen in either firefox or chrome. Shit.
