It happened twice just when I was browsing the internet. I don't notice anything before it freezes up like abnormal fan speed indicating maybe the CPU would be over heathing or anything.

Everything is on stock clocks.

Could be software related then , what os and browser are you running and have you checked events logs prior to freezing after restart?
If it occurs during Internet browsing have you noted hardware usage or any unknown processes when browser is opened? chromium based ones chew a lot depending on number of tabs open or what you are doing on the net.

Only using Chrome browser !

No I haven't checked event logs as I don't know how to do that.

Thing is when it freezes I can't even ctrl alt delete to check out task manager to see if anything abnormal happens. Ill try to see if anything weird happens when I just open the chrome browser.

Event Viewer is for that.
Reliability Monitor is another tool in Windows.


Motherboard seems to have awfully lots of USB compatibility improvements, so if BIOS is old trying F32 would be one thing.

Also that SSD is total noname brand.

So right now it's getting a blue screen and it says Video TDR Failure.

I tried update the MB bios and the Vega drivers but still happening ?

Gigabyte boards (in my experience) are very hit and miss. It is just a thought but if you have access to a GPU try that, if not set your BIOS to run default to set the memory to the boards base speed (2133 I believe, not the XMP profile) and see if that helps.

Chrome is an enigma .... I can not understand why on 2 identical machines one runs fine and the other only runs fine after removing Chrome. I have spent so much time trying to find the cause that I gave up and banned it from our networks.

On a side note - (a bit off topic) if you want to get the best performance out of that APU. You need faster ram. gaming performance would benefit greatly.

This is correct. The faster the better. Of course by the time you're done dropping coin for faster RAM, you might as well get an actual GPU for the money you'd be spending..

I can't believe how relatively inexpensive RAM has gooten. You can get 32GB (it has sold out since this morning) for under $200 CAD!!! If that is true on Canada than it is potentially the same around the world.

Oh, I made that statement I was talking about DDR4-3600, 3800 or 4000. That stuff is the best for use with an APU, but is also pricey.

It is actually obscene. Double the price for 400 MHZ, really?????

So after trying different hard drives and a few solutions on the internet nothing seems to work.

Newegg accepted to take the MB back with a 15% restocking fee if the board is not defective...Going to return that. But I am still stuck with this worthless CPU.

This was my first and last AMD build.

Tonight ill be swapping the ram stick with the ram that I have currently in my computer... see if that changes anything.

I seem to have found the problem on my current setup... it only crasher when using both ram slots. If I only use 1 ram stick (4gb) it doesn't seem to crash at all. Could it be a bios setting ?

I looked onto the supported RAM list of that mobo and that ram you bought isnt on the list, at least not the 4gb model, the 8gb one that is only has 1 memory socket support.
