Question On boot I can use my computer for a few minutes before freezing

Oct 15, 2022
I recently updated my CPU to an I9-9900. SYs info is below. On boot I can use the machine for a few minutes then it freezes. A reflash of the BIOS fixes it but that seems less than ideal to do all the time. I also put 64 GB more of RAM at the same update. The TPM is also showing as unusable. Not sure what the problem is and it is driving me nuts.

You have a lot of ram. I would start by trying one stick of ram at a time to rule them out. Also trying a new motherboard battery is a cheap enough troubleshoot.
Did the battery. No dice. Dropped back to my original 64 of RAM. I’m a huge idiot and didn’t read the MoB manual. Only supports 64. Still having the freeze occasionally. I don’t want to go back to my previous CPU :(
I overlooked the Tpm problem, you can try this fix to see if it helps things,

Open the Windows Defender Security Center app
  1. Select Device security.
  2. Select Security processor details.
  3. Select Security processor troubleshooting.
  4. Select Clear TPM.
  5. You will be prompted to restart the computer. ...
