Hi, I have encountered some strange behavior while using Windows 10. Not sure if it is software or hardware issues. Usually when I pressed the Windows icon at the lower left corner, a bunch of things showed up immediately. However, for the past three days, Windows displayed half of those things, paused for about a second before displaying the remaining. What kind of issue is this? I have 2 months of experience using Windows 10 laptops but never encountered such issue. For this DIY workstation, I have encountered this issue several times even I reinstalled Windows. My computer consists of i9-9900K, DDR4-3200CL14 Trident Z RAM, Samsung 970 EVO SSD. All highest end components. Before this happened, I had experienced electric shock perhaps static electricity a few times when touching the metal frame of my Dark Base Pro 900 Rev 2 case and the Nocta NH-D15S heatsink. If I recall correctly, I think I saw sparks. I worry that such incidents might have caused such system instability. Do you think this could be the cause? Did I damage the SSD, RAM and or motherboard? I am in Canada. The temperature these days is between few degrees to -15c.
