Greetings. I am in no way an expert but i have tried many things and have come up stump. So i'm here in the hopes of someone being able to help me figure out my problem. So read my story to gain a full picture.
When windows 10 first came out i downloaded it like everyone else, however when installing it wouldn't finish installing, i waited for over 5 hours and nothing, it was just stuck on a percentage. After 2-3 attempts i found a work around on the internet and finally got windows 10 installed.
When ever i watched youtube videos (and this is mainly based around videos) my pc would just freeze. No blue screen of death, no laggyness, just total freeze and will not respond. So i thought i could be my video card, so i switched with my brothers video card and the problem still persisted.
I switched the PCI slot, problem still persisted. I switched the PSU, the problem still persisted. I ran memtest for 24 hours, memory is fine, problem still persisted. So i thought it was my SSD hard drive so i used my old backup storgae hard drive and installed windows on this, but the problem still persisted. I have tried to do a fresh install on the SSD two times but the problem is still there. I don't really have many options left because i literally have almost nailed everything down. The only real options left are these;
- take the old HDD out and try just the SSD by it's self.
- Change back from a all in one corsair water cooling system to a normal fan
- Replace the motherboard.
Also best mention that the computer only freezes right now when i'm watching Twitch.tv. Can't say for sure but happens more frequently when full screened or theatre mode. Also when playing games. (hence why i thought it was to do with the GFX card)
PC specs at the moment are.
- OP: Windows 10 pro 64 bit
- CPU: AMD FX-9590 Vishera 32nm Technology
- RAM: 16.0GB dual-Channel DDR3 @ 803MHz (11-11-11-28)
- GFX: 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series (MSI)
- Storage: 500GB Seagate (Old HDD)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anything else you need please don't hesitate to ask.
