    Freezing issue when streaming. No BSOD?

    I've been having frequent freezing issues when streaming (Sometimes once an hour but more often once every ~4 hours) . My screens stay on but everything just locks up. Don't see a blue screen or error message either. But maybe it's just not visible?

    This started around 3 weeks ago. Didn't have any issues before that.

    I stream either through OBS to twitch or through discord screenshare (with OBS open on my screen).

    In both cases I also have mobile screen mirroring software running.

    I've never had a freeze happen when doing anything else on my laptop. Even when recording video through OBS without screen mirroring active I haven't had it freeze (I guess this could just be lucky though).

    So my theory was that there's some *interference* between OBS and the screen mirroring software. I tried a full reformat of my laptop followed by switching my screen mirror software (apowermirror --> vysor) but neither seems to have fixed the issue (though switching software does seem to have made it less frequent, for now).

    Event viewer is not giving me anything useful. Just an unexpected shutdown
    "The previous system shutdown at 21:56:34 on ‎29-‎3-‎2021 was unexpected."
    "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

    I've ran the V2 collector tool and attached it to this post. Though I'm not sure if it's anything useful as there don't seem to be any .dmp files. Not sure if that's an error on my end or there just really wasn't a BSOD.

    It seems that this overheating problem is more present than not. Here, on a Lenovoe of 8 years, it did freeze on me a few times. I was determined to cure this. I opened up the case, took everything out but the Mobo and using my shop vacuum I first sucked out what was around the inside. I then reversed the flow of air from the vacuum and blew out the dust. The radiator on the CPU was totally clogged, its small fine was swept with a small paint brush. The amount of fuzz was outstanding ! No wonder the machine was giving up the ghost. I am on it now and it has been on for > 1 hour. No repeat of this freezing. I also opened up the power supply and strange enough it was mostly pristine but I blew it out too. A little elbow grease goes a long way. FWIW. Daopa.
