Help, I'm gonna cry

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Greetings forum. Please help, I'm reaching the point that I might consider just buying a new pc at this point. So my problem is as follows. My computer freezes. Times are a bit random but it's every 30 min or so. Freezes up for a good 15 seconds where I can't do anything, the sound still works though. If I'm in a game, game and everything will freeze but I can still chat on discord. Even happens on occasion when I'm not in a game such as when im working on a word document. Weird I know. So this happened when I upgraded my pc. I got a new power supply (antec eag 550w gold standard), ssd (Kingston 480gb) and lastly graphics card (second hand gtx 1070 Asus dual OC). So I tried reinstalling windows, this helped but not a lot. It reduced the frequency of freezes. I then upgraded ALL, my drivers. No help. Reinstalled MOBO bios. No help. After this I tried running all the diagnostics I could. Hard drive sentinel came back with nothing. Malwarebytes, came back with nothing. Tried resetting the vbios on graphics card, again, nothing. Only thing I noticed was whenever it would freeze, the Gpu usage would drop to 0%. Now since this card was second hand and previously used for mining I thought maybe it was that and after trying to troubleshoot everything else my only thought is it has to he the gpu. So I replaced it. Bought a new xfx Rx590 fat boy. Placed it in pc, installed drivers and boom! It happened again. I don't know where to go now. What could be the problem at this point. Please help. I've also run Memtest now and no errors.

Specs:

I7 4790

Asrock z97 anniversary

Hyperx 16gb (2x 8gb)

Kingston 480gb ssd

3tb hdd

Antec eag 550w gold psu

Xfx rx590 gpu

Is your SSD, a A400 model? Is your windows installed in it? There have been cases of this particular model freezing up windows. I have one. Tried it out cuz someone said the issue was fixable through firmware update, freezing started to happen, downloaded Kingston software, it didn't even recognized the ssd even tho was working normally apart from the freezes. Had no choice but to buy a new SSD. an 860 EVO. No freezing there after.

It is indeed the A400 model sir. How would I test if that is the issue without installing windows on a new drive?

Do you still have your old drive with windows on it?

I don't know another way i'm afraid. Those who had this SSD without it being a boot drive, eventually had issues where their files would become read-only and unusable. There was a huge sale in my country early this year and this SSD was sold like hotcakes. There were many threads created by people that ran into issue with it. Some were fortunate enough and were able to fix it through the firmware by Kingston's SSD Manager software. Others such as myself, weren't so lucky...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
