Hey there, I have been having this issue for over a year and I have no clue how to fix it so I am throwing my line into the internet.
Computer reliably freezes while downloading. I can literally boot up steam, start a 10 gig download and it is almost certain to freeze during it at some point.
What have I done so far:
I have checked the event log, but since it is a hard freeze it only catches the forced power down.
-researched for days of combined time over the past 2 years
-run multiple virus scan and malware scan programs one at a time
-I have updated all programs, drivers, and bios for my motherboard
-I have run memtest properly for 24 hours each stick
-I have replaced my, PSU/GPU/Mobo/RAM/HDD each time testing the download issue.
-I have not replaced my, Case, Keyboard, Mouse, or CPU
