So at the begining, I though it may be a hidden virus in my system, but after I followed the steps to clean my computer from thread "Am I infected", it appears everything is fine- no virus or harmfull software.
The main problem is that my pc randomly freezes- it happens like this:
While using any other software than video games (literally everything), at some point computer just.. stops working. I can't move my mouse, can't type anything- it literally freezes for a moment (including sound, though while using windows media player, sometimes program just doesn't work but audio goes on), usually about 30 seconds (sometimes longer). And it wouldn't be that much of a problem, if it wouldn't happen so often.
While playing video games- that's when hell starts. It can happen once a minute, and sometimes even more often. During that freez, audio starts to loop last half a second untill it unfreezes.
Just to clarify- I'm not playing/using any kind of software that my PC can't handle. Most of the things that I use require really small amounts of ram or cpu. And surprisingly- while game requiers small amounts of ram and cpu and freezes constantly, my other software that sometimes can take almost all of my ram and 90/99% of the cpu, freezes very rarely and it's all ok.
It was something that just started happening one day, and never stopped. Just got worse.There's nothing going on in the background that could possibly cause that big problem.
I've tried to track down maybe some patterns, or perhaps it was something I was doing that causes this to happen. But no- it's completly random.
And here's another issue:
My coputer restarts when I try to get into safe mode. It looks like this: I restart, keep pressing F8 untill a menu shows up, I choose "Safe Mode", windows shows up asking me for my profile password. I type it- enter- says "Welcome", and then restart... I tried ten times or more- always the same scenario.
Normally, I would wipe my hard drive clean the first week this happend and reinstalled the system. But I can't do it.. I have gigabytes (700 to be exact) of data that I just can't lose. And there's no possible way for me to make a copy of it. If I'm to delete all that, I can as well throw my computer out of the window...
I need help with this. Situation is desperate. And I need my PC working as soon as possible. Please help.
