  1. System Interrupts 100% CPU when trying to stream with OBS + freeze


    This problem started in early February. Before then, I could stream to Facebook Gaming to my heart's content. However, now I am unable to stream on the very same PC that I used to be able to.

    Problem is, about two minutes into the stream, a process named "System Interrupts" starts using 100% CPU and about another 30 seconds, my entire system freezes. The only way I can unfreeze my system is by holding the power button to force shut off my PC.

    I have NOT made any changes to my PC since OBS was working even for six hour streams other than the normal Windows updates.

    A bit of Googling around suggests that it is almost always a driver problem. Basically every website said that. So, I tried installing literally every driver that was listed in Windows Update yet the problem persists. I still get System Interrupts spiking to 100% CPU followed by a system freeze just a couple minutes into the stream. The only thing that I have not updated are my Nvidia drivers but I am 100% sure that it is not the fault of the Nvidia drivers as it is the same version of Nvidia drivers when I was streaming with no issues in January.

    I can game with no issues as long as I am NOT streaming them. This includes resource heavy games like Need for Speed: Heat. Now I cannot even throw on an SNES emulator and stream that without System Interrupts spiking to 100% CPU and freezing my PC. I used to be able to stream Final Fantasy XIV which is a fairly resource intensive game without issues and only utilizing 20% CPU.

    I already asked the guys over at OBS support and all that they could tell me is that while OBS can trigger these system freezes, the system freeze itself is outside OBS, thus they cannot provide any help in resolving the issue. So I am asking here.

    I am using the latest version of OBS Studio and I already ran sfc /scannow and check disk and both pass with flying colors.

    I checked the event viewer but I did not see anything out of the ordinary other than the forced shut off attempt

    My PC is an HP Envy 17 j177nr with 16 GB ram.


    Does anybody know how I can remedy this so I can stream again

    :)
