This issue has been occurring for months on end now, but just recently started happening more frequently to where I can barely do anything I want. I can be gaming or doing something as simple as browsing the web or Discord until the individual program locks up, and each time I click a different program it will immediately lock up as well until my entire PC freezes altogether.
Most of the time, I'm still able to move the mouse around and and even hear audio whilst everything else is frozen on screen. Sometimes if I wait long enough it will crash to BSOD with the "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION" error; however, most of the time I'm forced to manually shutdown via the power button.
I've done just about every public help method I could find online from command prompts like "sfc scannow" to every virus/malware scan and various registry edit tools. I'm now left to believe that it must be unique to my hardware or OS. Three days ago, I upgraded my BIOS and physically cleaned out my entire PC to which it had been working perfectly up until today, so I'm left with this as my last resort before spending money I don't have on repairs. Here are my PC Specs: Motherboard: ASROCK X99E-ITX/AC w/ WiFi, DUAL LAN CPU: INTEL I7-5820K 3.3 GHZ GPU: GIGABYTE NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB RAM: CORSAIR VENGEANCE 16 GB (x2) PSU: CORSAIR RM850W OS: Windows 10 1909 System Type: 64-bit
Any help or information would be a lifesaver at this point! Let me know if there's any further info that I could add in order to help
