I have a gaming pc, yet I've noticed that every game keeps freezing. Sometimes it's 15 minutes into playing and sometimes it's a few seconds. I've also noticed that sometimes the sound disappears for a few minutes, and then comes back.
-I've tried turning off my AV, but that didn't do anything
- I used the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool and it came back with no errors
- My H.D.D's SMART data says that it's fine.
-The games even do this on the lowest settings
- I've also checked my temps while playing and they're fine.
I'm completely stumped as to what could be causing this. I'm sure it's hardware related, though. I'd appreciate it if you guys could help me narrow down the cause.
