Hello,

 

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.

 

PC Specs:

 

Intel i7 6700k 4.0 gHz

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1070

G.Skill Tridentz DDR4-4000mHz PC4-32000 (2x4GB)

Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB

ASRock Z170 OC Formula

EVGA Supernova 80+ Gold 750W

We need more information about your system than what you've provided. Hence, please follow these BSOD posting instructions and attach the requested files by replying to this topic. You may skip the part of step three where it instructs you to create a new topic, since you already have a topic here. There's no need to create another topic. :wink:

Thank you.

Regards,
bwv848

P.S. Even if your computer isn't blue screening, please still do the above.

Hi,

 

I would love to do that, but because of the problem I am having, I won't have enough time to run the program for my PC to start freezing up again. Is there an alternative option?

Can you boot into Safe Mode and run the tool from there?
