  1. My PC has been running fine since my last post. Hopefully your system is good now too. The drive I had issues with didnt have anything installed on it, it was just for archival purposes. I suppose I should also try different SATA ports to see if it might just be the port.
  2. I may have faced that issue in the past, I always set my PC up with a small boot drive and a larger games and programs drive. If I ever have issues that I cant solve easily I just reinstall Windows. Had my PC slow down significantly about a year ago. Ran Malwarebytes and Kaspersky and found nothing, so I reformatted my OS drive and reinstalled. PC was fast again. I really should start using virtual machines more for anything sketchy.
  3. It was an HDD, a Seagate something. Ill try re formatting it and see if that fixes it.
  4. I did have the realtek drivers installed, i changed back to the stock ones and still had the same issue
  5. I may have solved the issue, Turns out that one of my hard drives was causing the issue. My clue was that the Virtual Disk Service kept stopping and starting whenever it happened. Hopefully that helps you I completely removed the drive from my system, and have no more issues
  6. Yes, you can open reliability history just by searching for it in the search bar in Windows. You can click a day and it will show you any hardware failures that you have had (such as kernel events) Event viewer is harder to explain, Google will have information on that.
  7. Looks like nobody is going to help us, hopefully with two of us we can narrow down the issue. Do you have any hardware in common with me? The fact that it seems to have started around the same time for both of us leads me to think it might be Windows Update related.
  8. Hello, I have been wrestling with this issue for about a month now. I will be playing a game or watching YouTube (normal use, nothing I can specifically pin as a trigger) and my computer will freeze for a few seconds, then resume normal operation. This happens every few hours. Sometimes my audio will freeze, sometimes it will just slow down then snap back. Most games handle this issue without any problems (just freezing for a few seconds) But I know that Kerbol Space Program crashes when it happens (tried to find the crash log, but no luck) I have noticed that there are some applications where it does NOT freeze. Specifically it has not done it while playing Half Life Alyx (VR), this could just be coincidence, but I feel like it may be more significant. Here is my hardware: CPU: Core i5-8600K OS: Win 10 64 Bit MOBO: Asus ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming BIOS 2401 (Most Recent) RAM: 2x Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8GB) 3000MHz Kits SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 500GB PSU: EVGA SuperNova 550 G3 220-G3-0550-Y1 550 Watts GPU EVGA GeForce 1080 SC Gaming 08G-P4-6183-KR HDD: 2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB Internal ST2000DM006 WiFi/Bluetooth: ASUS PCE-AC55BT B1 Optane Module: Intel Optane M10 16GB HTC Vive Wireless Adapter Here is what I tried so far: I have re-installed Windows twice to no avail (downloading drivers from the manufacturer website every time) I removed my GPU and still had the issue occur I ran memtest and did find a bad stick of ram, I removed that stick, and its twin and am preparing to RMA the kit, but the issue still persists I re-seated the RAM and CPU, to no avail I checked Event Viewer and Reliability History and they show no events (Reliability History at one point did show a Kernel Event 117, but hasn't shown it recently) I booted a Linux install drive and checked the kernel log and found a recoverable error with one of my USB controllers, I then disabled it in Windows, and still had the issue I have uninstalled the audio driver and gone back to the generic Windows one I have run stress tests for a short time (mostly to test temps) and everything runs normal Ran SFC, it found a couple things, but didnt fix the issue Updated my BIOS Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am usually the guy who solves PC issues, but this one is just refusing to be fixed
  9. As a poor college student I currently have to play games like Fallout 4 on what is essentially a potato, and incidentally that is about all of the space I have for a PC, the Magnus would fit perfectly on my desk on top of the pile of homework that I wouldn't be getting done anymore with this beauty. Guess I would have to find a place for the potato then... Maybe ill eat it...
