Hello fellas!

 

My PC started hard hanging randomly. At first it was 2-3 times a week, then the frequency increased and I did a clean install. Windows 8.1.

 

After a couple of days it did it again.

 

I need some help so I can narrow this down. Can't stand it anymore!

 

Here's the current situation:

 

I've already tested RAM/CPU with memtest. Ran 8 hours with no errors.

I've realdy ran OCCD for a couple of minutes and BurnInTest 15 min cycle. No crashes. So PSU and GPU seem to be okay?

I've ran CrystalDiskInfo and HDTune. Former reports 99% health and later reports C7 errors. I have replaced the sata cable and SO FAR, it hasnt increased.

 

Speccy summary:

What do you guys think? Is my hardware excluded? Probably drivers/software? Any ideas?

Welcome,

If all of the drivers and software are up to date then you may have picked up an infection of some type. What is your security program, is it current and have you run any scans?

Thanks

Hello!

I'm not sure if all my drivers are up to date. I have no yellow marks on device manager though.

I have malwarebytes and bitdefender active. They have found no threats, so I don't think it has to do with that. Also, the issue happened before and after the fresh installation.
