Hey all, I have an issue with my less than half a year old GPU. Using DDU to wipe drivers and reinstalling makes it work until the next time I restart my PC. The issue is that in games the GPU uses less than 60% TDP depending on the game, on some games even less than 10% if they're less...
So as the title reads, I can't boot anything, not even my USB stick which has a fresh Windows installer on it.

Hello tom's Hardware forums,
I recently bought a used SSD for my PC. Its a SK Hynix PC300 NVMe 256GB
Everything was fine at first with the SSD at first. CDI showed health at 99% and read and write speeds were normal. however my pc started to randomly freeze and reboot and when I downloaded...
Well, this has been so far the biggest mystery I've had with an SSD, so it may be something silly.
Here's the scenario: I was calmly playing one night, like usual. I decide to shutdown my PC for a while, when i go to turn it back again, I get the typical "Reboot and select proper boot device"...

My PC's wifi has stopped working
The driver name is
Mediatek Wi-Fi 6E MT7922 (Rz616) 160MHz Wireless Lan Card
It gets error code 10, the device cannot start.
I've tried multiple things and can't update/roll back the driver as Windows can't update the driver for a device with error code 10.
For the past two months since I got my new computer, I have been plagued by a dreaded issue that likes to recur whenever it feels like it.
A problem with your hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

I've had this problem for like 3 months now but it has gotten way worse recently so I had to reach out for help. What is happening is that whenever I play a semi-demanding game (like RDR2 or Dying Light), my game/computer would freeze for around 45 seconds minimum to upwards of...

I thought I’d reset the CMOS and load default settings in bios. Still didn’t...

Well I got a bit of an old PC with problems. (previous thread). Managed to fix most of the problems. Especially crashing. After a while while checking in the settings I saw that my GPU (asus r7 260x) was running at PCIE 2.0 x8 , so I reseated it. Worked on PCIE x16 but crashed after a while and...

I bought a new PC in September with so much happiness that I finally got a good PC with the following Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-12700K 3.6 GHz
Mobo: MSI MPG Z690 EDGE WIFI ATX LGA1700
RAM: Kingston FURY Beast 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-5600
I have an issue with my PC where my screen cuts out to black but my PC is still running and I have to reboot in order to fix it. So far it only happens when I try to render something in Blender or I use Cinebench. It seems like it happens whenever my CPU is heavily used? I don't know.
So randomly when I was playing Minecraft this glitch happened during the time it happened, the screen didn't just black out and turn off, it started to glitch and then turn off and this glitch happened to me before on the old motherboard.
We got the graphics card repaired that time and when we...
