I can't see anything suspicious here. You said you even reinstalled Windows and the same problem reappears?
If you format and reinstall and there was malware present, it should be gone anyway.. and since you're having the same problem again, then this is certainly not malware related, but rather hardware related.

That's why I suggest you post your problem in the hardware part of this forum.
