I recently upgraded my rig. A day before i added all the components, my computer froze a few times on my old setup. The screen would be frozen and the mouse wouldnt move either, the first couple tims i got a windows message saying there were errors and eventually it would restart. After that it had started freezing completely and the only way to get out of it was to hold the power button. I wasnt too worried because i assumed it was my cpu and i was upgrading soon
After building my new pc and trying two different new ryzen 5 cpus, changing psu, new mobo, new gpu, new ram - the problem persists. The computer freezes soon after logging in. And sometimes it does last for about 20 minutes before it freezes. I have also tried different cpu coolers. I have eliminated everything i could and also installed fresh windows. The only thing remaining is my ssd, could a bad ssd cause such freezing? Even after a fresh format and install ? Is there something im missing?
