    Mouse and screen keep freezing up randomly for around 0.5 - 1 second


    I was playing Spellbreak when this started happening. For context, I was using my GPU to mine ethereum for about 4 weeks prior to this. I would leave my computer running overnight using a program called MSI Afterburner to limit power to 80%, memory clock to 699 MHz, and automatic fan speed. My mouse is a Razer Death Adder from around 8-10 years ago, but this is also happening while using a cheap mouse from Walmart. The keyboard doesn't seem to freeze, only the mouse does and whatever is on the screen does. Today I used Windows 10's Reset This PC feature (keep my files option), but even afterwards this issue was still happening. I am in the process of downloading the latest Windows Updates and NVIDIA GeForce Experience to update GPU drivers, but I feel as though the problem will still be there (will close this post if the issue no longer appears).

    Is there a way to automatically detect my PC's specs? I don't know of a way, but here is what I know:

    NVIDIA RTX 2080
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600K CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz
    16GB RAM

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just discovered something else - even if I disconnect the 2 monitors I had connected into the GPU and only run the old monitor I have plugged into the motherboard, the freezing still occurs. Does this mean that this isn't related to my GPU?

    If the WU's does NOT work, you could try this to see if there are ANY device problems . . .

     Check for ANY Problem Device Errors

    [1] Click on this TenForums link => Batch Scripts / Programs.
    [2] Click the direct download link Problem_Devices.bat in the MENU.
    [3] Run the .bat file.

    • If you want detailed information about the .bat file then scroll down the thread until you get to the relevant section.

    If there are NO ERRORS:

    You will receive the message NO PROBLEM DEVICES WERE FOUND!, and NO log file is created on the Desktop.

    If there are ERRORS:

    There will be a Prob_Devices.log file created on the Desktop.

    EITHER:

    Copy & Paste the results into your post using the [CODE] tags . . .

    [1] Open the Prob_Devices.log file in Notepad.
    [2] Press the Ctrl + A keys together.
    [3] Press the Ctrl + C keys together.
    [4] In your post, click the Hashtag icon #.
    [5] Click INSIDE the [CODE]Here[CODE] tags and press the Ctrl + V keys together.

    • In your post it will look like this . . .

    Code:
