Hey! So I bought a computer 3 years back and I am now noticing some problems, every once and awhile my computer freezes and the audio will bug, or the screen will turn black, or the audio will play while it is frozen. Then I have to reboot the computer for it to work. I've tried updating drivers, running disk checks, and memory checks. I even wiped the pc yesterday and installed a fresh installation of windows but I am still having the problem. I was hoping someone out there could give me a fix that I had been missing. But if not then I'll try and ISO reinstall. If that fails I guess I will try to buy new parts. Thanks.

Hey! I just wanted to follow up on my question, maybe to help anyone out there that has the same problem. I went through countless web pages trying to solve this problem. It has been 2 days now since my last crash, so I think I found a fix! I was about to start swapping out my components with new ones when I contacted NVIDIA for some help.

Go to your NVIDIA control panel>help>debug mode.

Make sure that any power saving you have is off. If there is an option for a High Performance (or Ultimate performance) power plan in the Windows control panel, select it.

(Control panel > Hardware & sound > Power options > High/Ultimate performance)

Then go to manage 3D Settings>Global Settings>Power Management> Prefer Maximum Performance.

Turn on hardware scheduling via windows settings.
Follow these steps to turn on GPU hardware scheduling:
  1. Click Start, then head to Settings > System.
  2. From the left-hand menu, select Display.
  3. Below Multiple Displays, click Graphics settings.
  4. Turn on the toggle for Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling.
  5. Restart your computer (once finished reading this entire paragraph).
Hopefully, this works for you too!
