Disconnect the VelociRaptor & try it
Have you tried swapping out the SATA cables?
Just a shot in the dark since I didn't see it mentioned...
Is this PC part of a domain or on a home network of some sort? I've seen PC's freeze when it loses connection and is attempting to acquire an ip address from DHCP server. Thought I would ask...
It is the system waiting on something. A lot of options here, so the event viewer can be your friend. Windows is pretty good about logging a program, driver, etc. that is extremely slow to respond.
What does it mean "the system waiting on something". What could that something be? I see nothing unusual in the event viewer.
A resource. You see things like this on a web browser every once in a while. Like I said, can be hard to track down. what types of devices are attached to your computer?
Devises attached to computer are....printer (rarely turned on BTW)....mouse, keyboard (both of which I swapped out to see if that was causing the problem), 1 external hard drive, a usb3 card reader, speakers.....that's it.
When I first read that, the card reader jumped out at me as something to disconnect. I know others have given you things to try as well.
I missed that. I had similar problems one time with a rig that I built, using a USB2.0 multi-card 3.5" bay reader. Would get "not responding" error, if I remember correctly. Also had issues booting properly. Turned out, I was using a cheap case-included PSU, and it had damaged the mobo's USB ports, causing issues with the card reader. Or perhaps the card reader was just bad to start with, but I eventually couldn't even boot the system until I replaced the PSU, but after I did that, I still had issues with USB devices on that rig.
