    PC freezes if I don't do something in the first 10 mins aprox.

    Hello all,

    I don't know how to describe it well but the PC freezes if I don't do something in the first 10 mins aprox.

    I since 2019 that I got this PC I didn't pay much attention before because I usually use the PC just as it starts or had some program that auto started with windows.

    Anyone had had this problem?

    My stats:
    OS Win 10 22H2, fresh install
    Power plan: Ultimate
    SSD NVMe
    Mobo MSI Gaming EDGE
    RAM 32GB DD4, XMP enabled
    CPU AMD 3900X, no overclock
    GPU Gigabyte 4070 TI (recently, had AMD 5700 XT before)
    PSU Corsair 850w
    Drivers: Mobo with latest firmware, Windows and GPU latest drivers
    AV: Bitdefender, used Kaspersky before

    BTW, don't know if it is related but also if the monitor is off when windows starts, then I get not video signal when I turn on the monitor.

    Try a Clean Boot. If this works, then you can leave it this way or you can add one Service or Startup Item at a time until the behavior returns, then you will know the culprit.

    Windows 10 Pro for the Bro

    I have a certain application that causes my computer to freeze very randomly throughout the day. If I end its task, then everything comes back to normal.

    If I try to run the app again, sometimes everything goes back to normal.
    Yet sometimes when I run the app again, everything freezes. The only solution for this is to restart the computer.

    I love the app and I always use it for many different projects. Macro Express. Don't know why that bug exists, and don't know why it still hasn't been fixed.

    What happens after 10min?
    Screensaver? Or something else? A process starts that has a corrupt file?
    Check Task scheduler.
    Same issue when booting in safe mode?

    Thanks everyone for your feedback.

    In short, the XMP RAM profile seems to be the issue.

    First I tried a clean boot a couple of times and all went good.

    Also reseated the hardware components and ran stress tests on the RAM, GPU, etc. all good.

    On the other hand, I got frequent random BSOD after the last post, I did not notice it before because I was leaving the PC on all the time, and the freezes or BSOD only happens during or after few minutes of started the PC. It seems that the new GPU does not go along with some hardware of my build.

    Then, I remember that I usually make a lot of changes in windows so may be it was my fault in changing a setting wrong. So I tried again to perform a format and fresh install using only basic drivers, but surprise, I got some BSOD while I was setting the new installation with the USB, and tried a different USB where I got a different BSOD.

    With the BSOD I reviewed again the BIOS settings to make sure I was using the defaults and I saw a post that XMP and OC should be disabled to troubleshoot. I made a new OS install an so far so good, no glitches, no freezes, no BSOD.

    Regarding de XMP profile, I read somewhere else that if the default XMP profile give problems then I should do it manually and/or lower the speed as it seems it is now supported my model.
