So I noticed it happen a long ways, few months back, but one time it hanged and I resetted and it was completely okay from then on. Considering it happened only once, I stupidly believed my friend that sometimes computers have little slip-ups. Ugh, wrong move. I'm so sorry. This is probably going to be a story of neglect, so now I need help.
Now, recently, it would hang a few times at random moments. Sometimes a little after start-up, when it's loading all the programs from the start, at some times just...at a completely random moment. I would restart it, but sometimes upon pushing the restart button, it would sometimes turn off, then turn on again, and sometimes (everything is so randomly patterned) it would turn off. I would cut the power completely, wait a few minutes, and possibly try again. By now I'm getting more and more anxious as this action increases at every moment.
Googling does little help since 'hanging' computers is such a broad broad topic, but I think it might be a hardware issue?
I'm not sure how to clean my CPU since admittedly, I don't want to touch anything in case I screw up. I know well enough about static and all that but I am not in a country that provides all the computer parts and necessities in the world. Heck, canned air was just newly introduced here. It's a real pain.
In any case, could I ask anyone for a little assistance?
I've got Speccy already.
I'm not sure what else to take and do to proceed. I'm a little iffy, admittedly, at installing strange programs. I reaallly don't want to screw this up because I'm not exactly able to afford much since I'm just a high schooler.
No BSODs for this issue. It hasn't BSOD'd in the lonnnnngest time. Just hangs at the screen. *sigh* And here I thought the old vidcard would be my only problem.
