Computer Crashing - No BSOD - Lots of Information!
First I'd like to say this is probably going to be a long post with a lot of info, some of which I may forget to include. Also, I'm not exactly the biggest computer genius out there, so please have patience!
I built this PC around 3 months ago and it worked fine for around 1 week. After that, I would occasionally get this problem where the computer freezes (the screen completely stops) and can only be fixed by the power/reset buttons:
A lot has happened since then in terms of troubleshooting and discovery so I'll list everything in chronological order:
None of these made any difference.
A few days later I got a bitcoin mining virus which was causing display errors. Eventually I got rid of it, but I noticed that the crashing actually stopped during that time. It also stopped happening for around 2 weeks after I got rid of the virus.
Stupidly, I decided to upgrade my GPU drivers again and the crashing started again. It wasn't noticeably different from the last time. This time I took these measures:
Eventually I got tired of making no progress and gave up trying to fix it.
A few days ago, I bought an SSD (Samsung 840 EVO 120gb) and installed my OS onto it. I then connected my 2 HDDs and formatted them both. Unfortunately I didn't think to do any crash testing at the time, as I had assumed the issue was a driver issue and that formatting the HDDs would fix it.
After installing all the drivers and updates, I started using the computer as normal to find that the problem remained. However, this time it is MUCH worse, with the crashing happening upwards of 20 times a day. Fortunately though, this has allowed me to identify some things:
Here are some other things I've noticed. Unfortunately, I know I've forgotten some things but I'll post them when I remember:
That's all I can remember for now. I'll be sure to add any other information as an edit to this post. Videos coming soon.
