I have a PC issue that I can't figure out.  I built a new PC back in Dec. '17, and then a few weeks ago, the computer started to freeze, can't move my mouse or type, so I would have to restart it.  It still freezes us at random times, sometimes at the splash screen, or 5-20 minutes after I power it on.  Updated all the drivers but that didn't help.  Did a clean reinstall of Windows 10 but it would even freeze during the re-install.  Took it to a local PC repair shop and diagnosed it with a bad MB.  Got a RMA on the MB, got a new one, and it was still doing it.  Bought a different brand MB hoping that it would make a difference but it didn't, still froze up.  Thought it was the SSD so I installed Windows on the HDD, but sure enough, it still happened.  I don't know what could be the issue at this point.  Before I test every single part, I would appreciate any ideas on what's going on.  Thanks in advance!

Build:

MB-MSI Gaming Pro B250

CPU - Intel G4560

SSD- Inland Professional 120 GB

HDD - Toshiba P300 2TB 7200RPM

RAM - Geil EVO Spear 8 GB DDR4 2133

GPU- Zotac Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

PSU - Raidmax Scorpio series 535W

It could either be your CPU overheating or not enough memory.  Before looking into that, do you have your virtualization turned on?  It's in your bios and if it's not activated, then you could have problems of this nature.  I don't remember exactly but you have to search for it in your advanced section of your Bios.  Had to do that on an HP all in one the other day.  Barring those three, I'm stumped.

I would have also guessed your motherboard as well from the sounds of it, but I guess not...

 

The only other thing I would think is if your CPU is overheating/throttling constantly. But if the repair shop didn't notice that it was overheating or if the heatsink wasn't working properly, then that would be strange...

 

Honestly, not a clue about this, first time I've heard of anything like this with so many attempts that have failed to fix it.

given what you said, it can only be either the psu or the cpu.

can't be bios since u put in a new mb

can't be loose connections for the same reason

1 in a million shot that both your ssd and hhd have the same issue at the same time.

can only be either the cpu or psu.

Appreciate the posts everybody.  I'll probably try to check on the CPU or PSU.  Think any chance it could be the RAM?

Locking up like that is often the power supply.
