  1. WHY DOES MACHINE FREEZE OCCASIONALLY?


    MACHINE RUNS CORRECTLY ALL DAY, BUT WHEN LEFT ON OVERNIGHT, WILL BE FOUND TO BE "FROZEN". OCCASIONALLY WILL "FREEZE" AFTER BEING USED EARLIER IN THE DAY AND HAVING TO BE LEFT ON FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. JUST STARTED THIS BEHAVIOR ON 25 FEBRUARY 2021.

    Occasional PC freeze

    Sadly I continue to have the same intermittent problem.

    After a spate of further freezes, always soon after morning boot up, last Friday I changed the CMOS battery (needed to remove and replace the graphics card to access the battery). The BIOS reload the last parameter set after the change.

    For a few days no problems.

    Then yesterday a couple of freezes. After 2 or 3 reboots it was fine for the rest of the day.

    This morning:
    Boot up - freeze after 10-15 minutes.
    Reboot - freeze during BIOS after detecting memory before the list of detected drives.
    Reboot - freeze after "loading operating system" message
    Reboot - still OK after a couple of hours.

    Past experience suggests it will be OK for the rest of the day.

    I've run memtest86, OK; Speccy, Crystal Disk Info & Hard Disk Sentinel all report drives OK.

    Any thoughts?
