So this problem just happened and I'll list the troubleshooting procedures I've done with the problem still persisting.
Originally, I had windows 10 64-bit installed it would actually freeze at random occurrences when I'm browsing anything from the web, running software, or merely having my computer on idle. Now it's gotten so severe that it pauses after I reached my windows desktop for a few minutes. Firstly, I thought maybe I had some corrupted window/software drivers, so to rule that out, along with my SSD, I installed a fresh copy of windows 10 from my secondary PC then switching it back to my primary PC. The problem still persists
I also tried swapping different RAM's and putting them on different slots, and detached my GPU and used the onboard HDMI input.
Motherboard BIOS is updated to the latest version.
I really think it's a hardware issue, but I have no idea what it could be and why. PSU? CPU? MoBo?
NOTE: There is a buzzing sound radiating from my speakers whenever it pauses during desktop.
Please help. I am out of ideas.
