My AMD based PC hangs up...! Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, I got an all AMD PC. Issue is it sometimes freezes and don't work at all in Windows. No idea what is causing it. Last time, i had this issue with an AMD GPU.


Current Specs are:


CPU: AMD FX-6200 3.8GHz

RAM: 8GB RAM (4+2+2)

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7570 1GB

Mobo: MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition.

it could be a lot of things. For one, you are using a weird RAM configuration. A lot of your hardware is close to 10 years old, and things tend to wear out by then. Also, 1GB of VRAM is pretty unusable. Modern GPUs have anywhere from 6-16GB of RAM. it could also be be a loose cable or a component that isn't set properly.

This definitely cannot cause an operating system freeze. A loose cable is also very unlikely to be the cause.

Hmm, I'll look into it. But I think, it is due to software bug or something.

You can try reinstalling your gpu drivers or even Windows itself.


You should also check your boot drive's SMART health status with something like crystaldiskinfo.

...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:


Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.


-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]


A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.


-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]


From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.


-OnePlus X - [7/10]


A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.


-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]


Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.


-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]


Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.


-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]


A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Well, I found out issue. It is that my CPU is hitting max temperatures. It is running like 75°C when being used. My room temperatures are like 35°C average so, 75°C is valid. So, as a protection windows freezes. I checked my BIOS. It is set to Auto overclocks. 


I want to have some settings from BIOS that CPU doesn't go beyond 70°C. I can even compromise on performance for now.


Need system stability for now.



PS. I can't change Cooler due to budget.

A quick update. I replaced the thermal paste. Temperatures are good.


I found out crashing is due to AMD 7570. It's last available update 15.7.1 crashes systems. 


If anyone can find a link to some old drivers, please let me know.
