    long standing issue


    so for the past two months ive had this issue where my windows 10 would pretty much freeze up, and if i tried restarting/Turning off the pc it would sit in an endless loop saying turning off. ive tried clean installs of windows 10, ive changed my gpu,ram and ssd to entirely new ones. ive at my wits end here and i cant afford to constantly go out and buy new hardware.
    changed 8gb ram to 16gb ram
    changed my 120gb ssd to a 250gb ssd
    and changed my 680 to a 970 then a 1060
    reinstallation of windows has been done either in the settings menu in windows 10 or via a thumbdrive where i got windows.
    all drivers and bios are up to date so is the ssd firmware.

    Open the case and clean out all dust and blow out fans with a can of compressed. Look at the label for the Power Supply Unit and report the make, model# and wattage. If it is 500W or below, it is not powerful enough to run your setup,
    Boot into Setup (Bios) go to PC Health, check the temperatures and voltages there.
    You can also do a Clean Boot. If that works, then add one startup item at a time, rebooting each time till the computer freezes, then you will know the problematic program,

    its a 650w psu not any dust really, and the temps are safe..
    doubt it has anything to do with my programs as its the standard ones from microsoft.

    Your System Specs doesn't mention HOW MUCH RAM you have, could be a problem with that "certain game" running properly. Most times Win10 runs just fine with 8GB RAM but a number of the 'serious' games need more even though a motherboard is listed as for gaming. Could also be how much RAM is available for the video adapter. My use of the quotes on "certain game" is to point out the necessity to mention what the game or program is, others may have better information pertinent to your problem.

    Missed that, always try to rely on the System Specs being filled in.

    tiny update:
    so ive was googling around and found people having the same issue as me duo to rust back from last year
    still not sure if its the same cause of it, but the issue is the very same.
    the devs for that game has never spoken out about it and it seems like no else (atleast of what i can see on the reddit) got the same issue currently.Pc stuck after playing rust : playrust
