Hi my pc:108500K stock 4800mhz

2x16 GB DDR4 GSKILL 3000mhz XMP

Seasonic Tx-850 Ultra Titanium

Gigabyte Rtx 3090 Gaming OC

Aorus Z490 Pro Gaming

1 TB SSD

I have updated Windows 10 to H20,the newest version. I installed windows 1 month ago with new pc. So far so good,games not crashing all stable.My pc is on 24 hours. Today was idle 5-6hours in desktop. After few hours when i go to use pc, i run Google chrome and then all starts slowly responding. I mean i was able to touch/move mouse, but all stops slowly responding. Chrome,search bar,start button stops responding. Then i make ctrl alt delete and black screen with blue circle. So i make hard reset.It happened first time that hang of system.



Is there somewhere my pc not stable or its a windows thing?

Like i said pc was idle 5-6 hours ,when i go to use pc, i turned on google chrome and then all starts slowly hanging. I checked EVENT VIEWER: Nothing,0 entries about any errors.Thx.

It could be, or could be the CPU. I would try CPU stress tests possibly, and other memtests as well.

Are you using the newest bios for your motherboard?

And is your machine stock or overclocked?

There was an issue with the latest Windows update that led to system instability when interacting with printers. Normally if you don't have a printer installed you should ignore this, though having the latest patch that fixes the previous patch is also a good idea.

NZXT cam was on background and epic launcher + steam.
I've had the "pleasure" of witnessing Epic launcher use as much as 10GB of RAM due to some memory leak, but that was 1 isolated case (haven't seen it since 1 month ago, it may have already been patched as well).

If the system passes hardware stress testing then all you can do is wait for any other abnormal behavior.
