My custom built PC was working fine until a few weeks ago everything suddenly went wrong. I'm having an issue of my computer completely freezing randomly. Video completely freezes but I can still hear audio for a while until it cuts out too. Ive noticed that it takes a while after first boot for this to start happening but after the first instance it continues to happen repeatedly approximately every 15-30mins. I have to reset the PC to fix it which leads me into my other issue which I am not sure is related. My PC mostly cant boot cold or after a reset, it must be reset while booting either once or twice in order to boot. It doesn't happen all the time (especially doesn't on cold boots) but most of the time. Also my monitor detects a signal while its trying to boot but its black.


Yesterday I replaced my GPU (Mainly to fix a bad fan problem) but the issue persists. Ive also ran a memory diagnostics test which detected nothing. Updated Drivers, Updated Bios and turned off power saving measures in the windows power plan yet it keeps happening.


Thanks so much!
