Hi my pc:108500K stock 4800mhz

2x16 GB DDR4 GSKILL 3000mhz XMP

Seasonic Tx-850 Ultra Titanium

Gigabyte Rtx 3090 Gaming OC

Aorus Z490 Pro Gaming

1 TB SSD

I have updated Windows 10 to H20,the newest version. I installed windows 1 month ago with new pc. So far so good,games not crashing all stable.My pc is on 24 hours. Today was idle 5-6hours in desktop. After few hours when i go to use pc, i run Google chrome and then all starts slowly responding. I mean i was able to touch/move mouse, but all stops slowly responding. Chrome,search bar,start button stops responding. Then i make ctrl alt delete and black screen with blue circle. So i make hard reset.It happened first time that hang of system.



Is there somewhere my pc not stable or its a windows thing?

Like i said pc was idle 5-6 hours ,when i go to use pc, i turned on google chrome and then all starts slowly hanging. I checked EVENT VIEWER: Nothing,0 entries about any errors.Thx.

ah ps
NZXT cam was on background and epic launcher + steam.

PS:Running currently Karhu Ram test no errors. Please help me.

Last question , i swear. Somebody from tenforums said this to me:"
Many possible causes- you name it, it could happen.
PSU, RAM, disk, timing issues, dodgy hardware, overheating (any evidence?), overclocking (are you?), software bug, mismatched RAM (is all correct and consistent?).... "


So it was because i have dogdy hardware?

I've had a quick read through the thread, but I really wouldn't put this on "dodgy hardware," it's kind of a silly reason to be very honest with you. None of the hardware you listed is dodgy. Being that your system was fine before you did the Windows upgrade I would tie it to either being a Windows issue, or driver issue more likely. When you did the upgrade, was it an in place upgrade, or a clean install? If it was an in place upgrade, sometimes upgrading Windows this way causes more issues than if you did a clean install.

Before doing a clean install, I would try completely uninstalling your GPU driver and reinstall them and see what happens. There's a program called display driver uninstaller (DDU), which will remove all remaining remnants of the previously installed driver. I would uninstall the driver normally first, reboot, run DDU, reboot, then reinstall your Nvidia drivers (make sure it's the latest one) and go from there.

If all else fails I would seriously consider doing a clean install of Windows and see if it still happens. If not then it had something to do with Windows during the upgrade. If it's still happening, then it could still be a driver issue, but I would still look at the hardware, ram, cpu (thermal paste), etc.. to see if there are any issues there. I would try the drivers/reinstalling Windows before ripping your system apart IMHO.

Nah it was clean install of Win 10 if i remember i 1903v. Not happened again since 23march ( still i was on 1903v).So why it happened once?
Well to be very honest, it sounds more like something (maybe a driver) just crashed, or something along those lines. Especially if it only happened once and hasn't happened since I would chalk it up to that. I build my own systems and while very stable I too have these random crashes every once and a blue moon. I don't leave my systems on 24/7 like you, so I am not sure if it has anything to do with it, but I wouldn't worry too much if it only happened once and hasn't happened since. We all experience random slowness/crashes we cannot explain from time to time, it's just the nature of computing/technology. ;) Now if it's happening a lot...then we have a different issue.
