Default Freezing

My computer has been freezing a lot lately. I installed an SSD a few weeks ago, but the most recent thing I did was spray compressed air allover in it to clean the dust out. I can still move my mouse but can't click anything or use the keyboard. No ctrl+alt+delete, nothing. Ideas?

Make sure your SSD has the latest firmware?

It now takes forever to get passed the Bios screen.

Run a memtest, I guess? You've got a wide range of problems but that's the best thing I can think for you to do right now. Your issues suggest something bigger like your mobo might be dying, though...

Re-seated memory and reconnected ssd and HDD. BF3 is working properly again, but it still isn't seeing my HDD.
