My first inclination is that it is a hardware issue not software. If it were me, I would start running tests on the hardware. Also, I would download and keep watck on my CPU temps by using free Core temp
. If you CPU gets overheated the computer will freeze up. I would run Memtest.How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+ , Prime 95 to test the CPU
. I would go to the manufacturer of you hard drive and download their diagnostic test to check the hard drive for errors. In the mean time I would check the Operating system for any errors by opening an elevated command prompt (click start, type in the search box cmd, on the entry that appears, right click it and select 'run as administrator) In the window that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow
and press enter. If it shows errors, you may need to run it up to three times. During the prime 95 test, be sure to keep a close watch on your temps. The test will make them rise rapidly. If it gets too high, stop the test. As far as an Apple, the cost about 3 times as much as a PC and are very propritary, meaning you cannot go just anywhere to buy a needed part. Also, on your post, in the bottom left corner it says system specs, click that and select edit system specs and fill it out as completely as possible. If you don't know the answers, Download Speccy
