SSD dying?

Fr4nt1s3k

Hello, I've ran into a problem after upgrading my PC.
When I work on desktop, browse the internet or watch YouTube (especially that), I get annoying screen + audio freezes. I can sometimes move the mouse around, but nothing is responding!
When watching YouTube, the sound stops at a particular moment and repeats itself until freeze stops. Very often turning monitor off and on helps, so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with Nvidia G-sync and Nvidia audio drivers?
What's even the point of Nvidia audio drivers if I use Realtek audio? When playing games, I never get these freezes, but the games are on other drives.

 

My SSD is Kingston 128 GB. I've been using it for about 4 years now and knowing it's SSD, I tried not to overwrite and move files too much.


I installed all latest drivers (chipset, IDE/SATA controller, GPU, network... everything… and yes, I made a clean Windows installation before).

 

Nothing helped so far :(

I doubt it's going bad, but run Crystaldisk on it and see what the health is like.

If you use chrome try turning off hardware acceleration in the settings

I'm using Firefox. I tried Edge and the freezes still happen.
If I run the PC for about an hour though, the freezes don't appear anymore.

It's hard to tell what the problém could be.
I'll try to make a new clean installation and format all drives again.

Luckily, I have a new 250 GB SSD I got in a bundle with the motherboard, so I can eliminate the old dying SSD possibility.  ?

Wow, that was fast. I tried just to reinstall this current Windows installation and the problem seems to be gone. Browsing the web seems smoother too.
