Wait what is exactly the issue here?

Does the computer grind to a halt, hangs, USB peripherals lose power, then it reboots? Does the sound crash and form a continuous loop until it boots up again?


Right click my computer> manage> then on the left side click event viewer> then look under anything under error or critical at the top.
The Computer completely stops. Power is still going into USB devices EG: Mice and keyboard BUT they do not respond for example if I press capslock the keyboard will not react. and the sound crashes and loops yes. It doesnt reboot it just .. stops and i have to hold the power button to turn it off. though SOMETIMES ive had it freeze then BSOD but that has happened Once or Twice.

I am currently waiting for it to freeze again in order to check heat of ram etc as mentioned above but have not had much time to use my computer recently for it to do so.

run chkdsk in the command prompt. just type in chkdsk /r /f and then say Y for it to start on next boot up. then restart your computer and let it run. You may have some currupted files and chkdsk will fix that

If you get the BSOD's only when booting, especially when the PC is cold after been off for a while, try to increase the RAM voltage a bit; it worked for me.

So my computer froze a couple of times some of them i was playing games and some browsing the web and i checked the heat of the RAM and it seemed .. warm but not all hot (warm enough to hold) all 4 sticks were the same temp id say. I check all the other parts heat. Heatsink, Graphics card , Hardrives nothing seems overly hot if anything just mildly warm. .... Any ideas guys?
