I experience random freezing on my pc. It just freeze with no error message or blue screen. It happens even if I am just browsing, watching videos, typing or gaming. I am not sure which causes this since it does not show any error message. It is so random and I am not sure what triggers it.
Things I have tried:
+memtest for 24 hours all passed
+memtest with 1 stick each
+updated gpu drivers
i changed the memory timings but didn't make any changes. there was still episodes of freezing.
hci memtest and memtest+ were all good for 24 hours testing
drivers for vc also updated
i googled about random freezing on SSDs and found out that its a possibility. i am using intel 330 ssd 60 gig. i am not sure if my settings were correct but so far its working (but not really due to freezing). i upgraded my drivers and my intel tool box detects my ssd as good. so i am not sure what other settings I should be adjusting on my bios. any ideas? tnx
Little progress. It no longer freezes and I reboot it. It still freezes and but I can move it after 4-5 seconds and my mouse cursor becomes blurry (WTF??) I will try to either get a new SSD or get a new PSU?? Which is which?
Well my computer also freezes randomly. My fix was to misdirect the BIOS. What I did was:
1. entered BIOS on boot up and instructed it to boot from a USB drive and not the HHD - I made that misdirection in two places.
2. when the computer boots it now says "no operating system found - press CTRL-ALT-DEL"
3. the next thing to do is manually direct the boot up to the hard drive. Your machine may require "Press F9" or "Press F12".
4. I direct boot up to the proper HHD and I have not had a freeze since.
I've been there with one of my PCs. I spent a light year's worth of effort with no results. I'd recommend a software reinstall followed by driver update. This won't guarantee a fix though.
I have tried doing this more than once with no success. Now I ditched my SSD and so far the problem is gone. But it does show up from time to time but not as frequent when having the SSD. So I will try to get a new board and psu. That might be causing this. Your thoughts?
