(HELP) New Build PC Has Freezing Issues. Makes me Force Restart.

First, i was getting Automatic Repair Loop and BSOD whenever id play. I then figured out something was faulty with the ssd i had as my boot drive and i removed it and all Automatic Repair Loop and BSOD is gone. I replaced it with an older WD Hard Drive and everything worked for about 3 days and then i ran into the issue im having right now. I could be playing CSGO or even on YouTube or Twitch and it will freeze up forcing me to restart my pc from the power button. While it freezes, I check to see if its deadlocked or not by tapping the cap locks key but sometimes its not deadlocked. Its a 50-50 chance of it being deadlocked. Ive ran memtest and had no ram issues and im checked both my hard drives and both had no problems. Ive also reinstalled windows many times. Sometimes i can be sitting on my desktop and one thing will go unresponding and a little box pops up saying end process. Everytime it does do it I try clicking it and it makes other things go unresponding (Taskbar, etc.) and its annoying since i dont know what the cause is. Ive also updated BIOS and drivers.


Ive replaced my RAM stick too, but now im starting to thing its either my Graphics Card or my Hard Drives Or Something. Idk what to do. I cant even go 1 day without having to force restart my pc like 3-4 times a day. Also, ALT+Tab, CTRL+ALT+Delete, etc. dont work. Therefore, forcing me to restart from the power button. Any comment is helpful, just trying figure out what to do.

  1. Open windows task manager, check how much everything is being used, if your PC freezes again check if the inside of the case is hot, my PC did the same thing, it kept freezing because my CPU was running at a constant temp of over 90C, I had to reseat the heatsink and havent had the problem since.

  2. pull the gpu see if it runs fine if it does it may be the 430w power supply cant output the wattaged needed.

    My CPU temps are pretty low when they crash, around 53 C- 60 C.

    Do you mean to try starting my computer up with no GPU ? or taking out the GPU and putting it back in to reset it?

    You should really get Speccy, it tells you the temp of multiple things, see if anything is red (means unsafe temp) when it crashes. But other than that, yeah, you should try pulling your GPU and trying again.,

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the GPU and still having freezes. I realized that when it freezes, its because of another program in the background will go unresponding, causing the pc to lock up for some reason. It froze on my desktop when i tried clicking something on my taskbar and i also tried to close out of a program causing my system to stop working and go unresponding. Idk if this could be the reason that my computer freezes, and if it is idk what to do to fix it.
