When starting my computer(after sleep/work, so 6h+), I almost always get a screen freeze and not sure why.
After immediate reboot, everything works fine.

Screen freeze happens
  • during bios splash image/ notification ( where there is a notification to press XXX to enter bios)
  • or during wake up from hibernation (in this case it skips bios splash image)

I assume there is a problem with CPU, or something that needs to heat a little bit to work?
Maybe some issue with motherboard wiring? storage issue? (win10 is on sdd)

The only thing I changed recently is monitor.
