Hi Community,

The past couple months my PC has been either stuttering or freezing every 30 seconds to a minute. It is becoming unbearable just to do common tasks, much less gaming. I know there are probably a thousand things that may be causing this, but wonder if there a some simple things I can do to help this issue. Specs below. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Best Regards,

You can do a simple sfc /scannow to check your files. You can check to see if your bios needs updating. Or you can go into bios and under exit set/reset your bios to original/optimal settings. You can check to see if your gpu drivers need updating and any other hardware drivers. You can try setting your windows power setting to high performance.
