So I was playing the battlefield 1 beta one night when all of a sudden everything freezes. No keys or anything responded, even my reset button did nothing when I tried to press it, so I figured the only option was to cut the power. After I did and my PC started to boot back up, I noticed it was oddly slower than normal. The startup screen lingered longer than usual, and the black screen after that stayed for a longer time than normal too, not an abysmally long time but long enough for me to notice. When everything does finally start up, it isn't different speed-wise than before the crash, however I've noticed that some things that worked with zero problems before suddenly didn't, like embedded videos in chrome not showing up. Not sure what happened to my PC, but from some of the threads I've seen before it looks like it may be a hardware issue, in which case I have no clue what to do, hope someone can help out.

Hard shutdowns typically may result in damage to some files.  IMO, the best way to counter such is to run the chkdsk /r command after any hard shutdown or otherwise unanticipated freeze or noticeable impairment of the system.

 

chkdsk – Guide for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 - https://neosmart.net/wiki/chkdsk/#From_Command_Prompt-4

 

Let us know how the system runs after trying that.

I don't pass my email address out in a public forum...the presence of spambots would only increase my daily flow of spam received :).
