Hello, I have used my system for a few months with no issues, and randomly earlier on in the day, my computer became unresponsive except for mouse movement, until finally freezing entirely. Now every time I try using my computer, after a random amount of time passes, this same issue occurs, my computer stops responding to mouse/keyboard, however the cursor is still movable for about a minute before everything freezes and a hard reboot is needed.

I have no idea what to do, please help. Im not sure what logs to post, so please tell me which I need to include.

Could this topic be closed? The issue got to the point of the hard drive making insane noises and the computer crashing the moment windows is starting up appeared.

I ended up managing to format it and reinstall windows, and now its working just fine. I have no idea what caused it.
