    Virus or hardware failure

    Running windows 10 old Dell optilex

    Turned on my Tpm so the other windows defender options would be available.

    GPU usage went to 90% browser crashed ..Error log shows a hardware failure but not what failed.

    Turned off TPM..Everything is normal.

    This is a second hand machine. Any thoughts? Virus or hardware failure 35ecaaee-79be-442e-8669-5185528a6768?upload=true.png

    Failing hardware? Undetected virus?

    It really sounds like a virus running hidden in the background!
    Though you've scanned the pc for viruses it's difficult that the antivirus installed finds the virus has already passed unobserved by the antivirus app.

    My suggestion is to put some executable antivirus and antispyware appz. in your flash disk and scan the pc from that.
    Use different ones, portable antiviruses are some suggestions:

    Eset Sysinspector : ESET SysInspector | Free PC Diagnostic Tool
    PrevX CSI :
    Spyware doctor..etc.

  3. Standard Hardware Security not supported

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to run hardware troubleshooter and let us know if that helps.

    Type "Troubleshooting" in the
    Windows Search bar and press Enter.

    1. Click on "View All" in the top left corner.
    2. This will display the list of troubleshooters which are built-in in the computer. You can click on Hardware and Devices from the list and you can run the troubleshooter.

    Also I would suggest to check if there are any update pending with regard to drivers and to do so, please follow steps mentioned below.

    1. Search for Device Manager in
      search bar.
    2. Click on Device Manager.
    3. Check if there Yellow Exclamation Point in the list of drivers.

    Make sure Windows is up to date.

    Hope it helps.
