    My pc is freezing


    It s my first topic here so i don't know how to begin, also my english is not that good


    So, these days i smashed my PC on the ground, and when i power it, it doesnt boot, i dont know what i do, i change something in bios and it was ok, he started, but i notice that is freezing for 2-3 seconds and is working a little hard, so i reinstalled my windows + format all the hdd, and nothing, it is still freezing and is annoying cause it s freezing only in action time when i play games and i die for no reason
    I watched all my pc components and the pc recognize them, i think is the hdd since he couldnt boot on him, he dont even show in bios till i do some settings there
    My PC is i7 6700, 8 gb ram and gtx 1060 6 gb so is impossible to freeze on a game like LoL, so if u can please say me what to do

    @raulica12, Welcome to TenForums.

    Your HD - is it an SSD or a spinning disk and is there only one drive, or multiple drives?

    If it is a spinning disk, that is by far the most sensitive component in the system, so that would be one of the first areas to look into but the fact that you were able to reinstall Windows is a good sign.

    Here are some things I would consider doing:

    1) Open the system with power off and just make sure nothing was knocked loose. Reset memory, cables and connectors, cards in expansion slots, etc.

    2) Run a "chkdsk c: /f /r" on your drives. That will check the entire disk, not just areas with data currently on it. Be aware that this can take a while! Repeat for drive letters other than C:.

    Let us know where things stand at that point. If that yields nothing there is more that you can do as well.

    chkdsk is a command run from the command line. It's short for "check disk". There are other ways to do this, I just like the command line because it's easy to see the error messages (if there are any) as the command runs.

    To run this:

    1) Press the Windows Key + R. This will open the "Run" dialog.
    2) Type "cmd" and then press CTRL + Shift + Enter. This will open an elevated command prompt.
    3) Type "chkdsk C: /F /R" and press enter.

    You should see something like this:

    C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk c: /f /r
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock current drive.

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Respond with "Y" and reboot the system and allow chkdsk to run.

    And after this what i do

    Depends upon what the results are. if you are getting lots of disk errors, replace the disk. Otherwise, we'll have to do some more troubleshooting.

    I would also check each cable, your graphics card and cpu cooler to make sure everything is seated properly.

    CPU cooler is a good call - I missed that one. As heavy and bulky as some CPU coolers are, that could easily shift in a tumble and could account for some of the described behaviors.
