Description of problem
For a little while now my PC have randomly frozen during different kinds of loads, gaming, login screen, casual browsing.. Most notably during gaming. When it happens it usually happens a few times within a few hours. Then it can be OK for a few weeks without trouble.Sometimes it freezes everything and the picture wont move, audio screeches and can't ctrl alt delete. Sometimes all three monitors turns black and becomes unresponsive.
When this issue began
A few months ago
Date of purchase
CPU, SSD, RAM PSU, 4 years old. MB, GPU 2 years old.
Cause/Steps to recreate the issue
Randomly happens, no specific load scenario that triggers it. Gaming, casual browsing, login screen.
What I've tried so far to resolve the issue
I've ran memtest and nothing came up. Stress testing both GPU and CPU at the same time yields nothing. One of my harddrives that I simply use for storage of one game that I don't play(500gb) has a few reallocated sectors warning. SSD and main storage drive are both in good condition.Ran Defender, Malwarebytes with nothing detected. Updated graphics drivers etc. Since then I've removed the harddrive with the bad sectors and tried changing PSU rail going to the GPU. Still happening several times.
Does this sound like a software or hardware problem?
