Not really sure what is going on or even where to start. Hoping someone who reads this has an idea of the issue.
 
Basically - I built a new budget computer (wasn't going to be used to gaming outside facebook). Build went fine, no issues. Booted up, everything was detected. Installed windows, updated, no sign of issue. Computer wasn't being heavy used here though.
 
Anyway - eventually I noticed a seemingly random issue - the computer would freeze for a split second (mouse pointer stuck, keyboard shortcuts not working, etc) and then come back like nothing happened.
 
There are no error codes in the Event Viewer. There's no errors period (No BSOD, no shutdowns, restarts etc.) for all intents and purposes outside this issue the computer works fine.
 
I've been paying somewhat close attention to when it happens and it seems to happen when the following happens:
 
Something is loading and the HD is spinning and the HD Light is either fully lit or flashing (so HD is R/Wing). At this point, the CPU usage spikes to around 70 to 85%, the power consumption spikes and the temp spikes.
 
Now, obviously the CPU spike in usage, power and temp is normal. The computer is loading something (webpage, program) which is requiring more power, thus generating more heat. Or it could be connected. Not sure.
 
It's happened during the following in the last couple of days:
 
Printing a document in Office, Opening/Loading webpage in Chrome.
 
That's about it. I'm sure if I gamed on it I'd see it more but that's when I've noticed it.

Sounds like it might be hardware related.

Hard to diagnose because it's so random.

Probably a month. At first I thought it was the mouse dropping signal - since I didn't really use it for much. I switched the mouse out and it still happened. It was random so I couldn't really troubleshoot. 

 

4 days ago when it happened I started hitting keys on my keyboard when it happened and that's when I realized it was the whole computer kind of 'hiccuping'.

 

Like I said these are less than a second. Mouse cursor would freeze then 'teleport' to where I had moved it on the screen.

 

No errors, nothing else wrong.

You're computer appears to be infected with malware. I have asked for it to be moved to the proper forum so until then please do not do anything. Thanks.

 

Weird. It's newly built, weekly scans with Malware Bytes. What makes you think it's infected?

I wonder - I have a Delta 120mm fan hooked up to the fan connector on the MB - would this issue be caused by the fan pulling to much power through the fan connector? Since it does seem to happen during or just after the fan speed kicks up.

 

These fans are brutally powerful.

There appears to no malware so we can pursue a different route,

Any chance I can get it moved back to the original forum area?
