First of all this issue has been there for a good time now, but getting worse, im now at the point when i even get freezes playing games like golf it, csgo, among us etc, witch never been a problem say 3months ago, heavier games was causing this then.

Problem is that the computer totally freezes and only reset are possible, screens and all stays on with current picture when this happens, and no sound, i have tried to monitor temps etc, but cannot see any issues there.

I have done some ram/hdd tests without errors.

I see that you have CCleaner installed depending on what you have it clean could have removed a file or a reference to a file.

From what I have been reading on that monitoring software it is buggy and not accurate.

I have not over clocked anything, so not in my knowledge

I just noticed in the AI log that i have recieved that HT warning last 2 weeks, but never before

For Windows to be able to run efficiently and to be able to update, on a mechanical HDD you need to have between 20 and 25% of the partition or drive available as free storage space at all times and on an SSD between 10 and 20%, if you don`t you risk Windows becoming corrupt or not being able to update which also puts you at risk of malware attack.

Data only storage devices should not be allowed to get any lower than 10% of free storage space of the full capacity of the drive/partition on the drive, this also to avoid data corruption.

Please note that storage devices can physically fail if the amount of free storage space is allowed to drop below the required 10 or 20/25% minimum.

Uninstall as many unused programs, games, videos and music files as you can and get yourself another means of backing up to, when you have between 25 and 30% free storage on the C: drive/partition see if you are to update to the latest version of Windows 10 which is 20H2.


Is the system over clocked at all?

My PSU are Corsair RM750x 750w
Just tested hdd and ram via windows built in tests, and was a while ago.

And for the disk part, this have been happening before i reached this usage, i actually tried to install a game on the C drive to see if that stopped the freezing but no
