My PC worked fine for almost 1 1/2 years now straight. But nowadays it has some freezes, windows isnt working than and i have to shut down the pc with the power button. This is not always the case (as right now) but for example i tried to update CSGO and it froze so i had to reboot and now i have to download the whole game (I dont know why?). works fine till 6,8 GB are downloaded and then it says "Stopping" but this keeps forever and if i want to move the steam window, windows freezes and i have to reboot. So my guess is, its the SSD which is broken.
I already tested the Ram (tool and removed them one by one), no change
I installed newest drivers for the graphic card -> no change
PSU? Motherboard? My keyboard sometimes is still lit after i shut down the pc via windows shutdown button. (Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2013 edition (blue light))
I am downloading Win10 Iso right now from windows and try to freshly install the OS and try to minimize my programs, maybe the last sectors of the SSD are broken? currently there is less than 40 GB free on the SSD. I have no idea, help appreciated.
I thought the same, but a few months ago my computer started actin up. I opened up the computer and looked at everything(I thought) but eventually after hours I saw that my cable for the SSD was burnt. I switched it out for another and bam, works like a charm.
if you need a tool to check hd for bad sectors go here: macrorit.com/disk-surface-test/disk-surf.. and download portable edition. I had lockups/freezes on an old comp ages ago where I could only restart it with button and it was my motherboard that was broken.
