Been noting it happening more and more lately but i am having random freezes of the system, (Usually right after boot, but can randomly happen any time, even in safe mode) but I can still move the mouse, game music will still pay, just can't click on anything and the joystick is unresponsive. I have done sfc/scannow and it does not find any errors. Samsung Magician shows an update to firmware is needed but it fails every time. I have noticed Magician popping up at startup saying failure to scan drive on occasion. Drive is an 860 Pro 256GB. Nothing other than an Warning or 2 in the event viewer.

Just can be annoying as heck, playing something online, or on Skype, or even typing a document, and have to stop, walk away for 2-3 minutes, and everything is fine again..

Hello

Please check if any updates are available for the graphics card and the BIOS. If they are, please download and install them and see if the issue is resolved.

Feel free to report back for any further assistance.

Cheers!!
