    Laptop freezes every 5 seconds for 1 second


    My friend asked me too have a look at his laptop as it was really slow,
    i ran some tests and determined his HDD was failing so recommended
    he got an SSD upgrade, so he bought one and i installed windows 10 for him,
    his laptop came shipped with windows 10 home, so i installed that one.
    installation went fine. straight through but once installed it became laggy.
    every 5 seconds it freezes for 1 second, at first i thought must be bios
    so i went to HP website updated bios to latest, then i went to AMD website
    and downloaded their gpu drivers and still same. then thought maybe the 4gb
    it already has isnt enough so i bought identical ram stick and installed it now running 8gb ram
    and still same problem, then i thought could be SATA drivers as windows installed AMD
    so i installed windows standard ahci driver and hasn't solved the issue.
    it doesn't have any viruses as SSD is brand new, i have also optimized the drive.
    i've run task manager to see if anything is amiss but i cant see anything.
    i've been at it for a week now and its starting to annoy me.
    any help would be appreciated.

    thanks

    System specs:
    Windows 10 home (19042)
    HP notebook 15-af153na
    CPU: AMD A6-6310 with radeon R4 graphics
    SSD: Sandisk SDSSA-240GB
    RAM: 8gb DDR3 800mhz

    5 seconds freezes

    hey
    since the other days i was messing with the inside of the putter after i turned it on from time to time (random) i get a freeze for about 5 seconds, then all comes back to normal, i have no clue why the f@ck this is happening, but online games crash when it happens, and other games is terrible anoying, any ideas?

    Ps: everything freezes, screen, sound does a 1 sec loop, numlock doesn't work, nothing

    Laptop freezes every 5 seconds for 1 second

    random 1 second freezes


    I experience the same 1 second freezes, although I didn't go that deep into the problem.
    Just saying that you're not the only one.
