Question Whats causing my pc to freeze for a few seconds when gaming?

Mar 22, 2021
Hi. Ive had this problem for a while now. Its usually fixed by reinstalling windows 1-2 times. Im starting to suspect there might be a hardware failure. Maybe gpu related?

So, the problem is that when gaming the games feeezes for a few seconds. All input thats made are all made when the game unfreeze. The freeze usually last for 1-4seconds. Does not matter what game i play.

I haven't updated any drivers recently. Other times ive had the drivers updated when the problem starts.

Ive had the problem for over a year and reinstalling windows seems to do the trick to fix it. But after 3-4 months the freezing is back.

Another problem thats started since my last fix in november is when im not gaming the gpu fans starts going on max speed and the screen goes black. I have to turn off the psu to kill it.

Ive had the gpu for about 4 years and its bought used, said it was lighlty used for mining.
