My computer started to randomly freeze when opening/closing Chrome as well as other applications. As a computer person I went online and did my best to research the issue. Using Task Manager I found that every time my computer would freeze, My GPU activity spiked up to 100% for a split second and then went back down to 0%. At times it will spike several times causing my screen to go black temporarily. The only thing that helped the issue was reducing the maximum CPU utilization because of my CPU capping the EDC, but even when it wasn't capping the EDC the freezing still persisted. I'm at a loss trying to figure the issue for almost a week now. Any help is more appreciated than you can imagine!
