    Random mini-freezes possibily related to CPU?


    I've been experience random freezes which may be related to the CPU, but i have the i7-4700MQ Processor which should be pretty decent.

    Here is my system specs with Speccy : ZETIX.txt

    Heat, runaway processes, malware, HDD errors....... many things can do that to even most powerful systems, first you have to find out when is that happening and what you were doing at that time and get some kind of pattern of it's occurrence.

    It usually happens when i'm gaming, or when i first open google chrome. I checked with task manager one time and saw Chrome using 100% cpu and experienced the mini freeze, which is why i think the problem is CPU related.

    Edit: I just opened Dragon Gaming Center and experienced the freeze again, but i saw the Disk Loading shot up to 100%

    Doubt it's anything wrong with CPU, it's more like system related than. Did you do antivirus and malware checks ?

    As soon as it happened i ran scanned my computer with Avast, and Malwarebytes. It appears to be my SSD. Every time it freezes my SSD would have a stuck sound.

    Assuming it's setup properly ( AHCI and Trim on) you can check it's health SSD Life - freeware version info

    In short, checks system file and store for corruption against original values and restores them to original shape over internet.
