  1. Computer freezes for a few seconds randomly


    So, I have been having alot... and I mean, ALOT of problems with my pc recently. I've managed fix most of them... but yesterday, as of me writing this, I have experienced that my computer freezes from time to time, and I have no idea why it does that. I've been reinstalling Windows 10 on my pc and it wasn't going so good... I had to reinstall windows multiple times for different reasons, wich was frustrating. And when the lag started I tried reinstall windows again and reset the entire pc, wich... didn't fix anything.

    Now, how does this freeze/lag occur? Well, it happens randomly, I don't even need to do anything... it just freezes for maybe 5-ish seconds, maybe more? And then after the lag it works fine again, but then a few minutes later, or hours, it happens again! It may well be my ssd who is acting stupid, since I had a little trouble reinstall windows again... but, as of now I have no clue what's happening. One thing that I noticed, when the machine is frozen everything stops, but for example, I can sit down and watch videos, films or whatever, the pc freezes and then the video skips to a certain, most likely the point I would be if the machine wasn't stupid. Same goes with writing, I can sit down and type something, the pc freezes, and if I'm typing while it freezes, the text will pop up when it stops. And it seems like what I'm typing can get funky, at some point while I was writing a message, I suddenly at multiple O's, like this, OOOOOOOOOOOOOO. And then I realized it was that damn pc lagging again...

    I have tried a couple of things to fix it, I've tried ''Run netsh winsock command, that didn't work. I tried to uninstall different drivers, and disconnecting usb's... And I tried install the lates chipsetdrivers for the motherboard.

    Yesterday, at one point, I tried uninstall the nvidia drivers, cause why not, i'm out of option... And I tried use a program to do that, but at one pont I realized I was not using the program that I was gonna use, instead I was using the ''Restoro'' program. Wich I've heard could fix my issue, but I also heard it was unsafe to use, and because of that I uninstalled it right away because I didn't want to risk getting virus, or whatever people said it did... I had gone through alot of progress with Restoro, I think it was scanning the pc, but right before I continued when it was done, I deleted it from the pc. I'm not sure if it can fix the issue, but I don't really wanna risk it, the site where I got it from looked very shady to me. Even the site where I got the nvidia uninstaller program looked shady... So nope, not gonna try that again.

    But right now I'm out of ideas on how to fix this laggy pc. Like I said, I did try to reinstall windows and reset my pc today while I went to sleep, but... that was just a waste of time. The pc tempreatures is fine... Everything ''looks'' fine... but, clearly something isn't. I'm so tired spending all my days trying to fix this stupid pc and getting no results at the end of the day... This machine is pretty expensive so I don't want to just throw it away and getting a new one...

    Seems like this pc just won't ever give me a break...

    Any suggestions and comments is grealty appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

    :)

    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.

    I had tried that as well... no result.
