I've got a decently powerful machine. It's got a Ryzen 7, GTX 1660, and 16GB of RAM. I've had it for about a year and it worked very well, but lately it's been giving me problems. In various games, it will randomly freeze for upwards of 30 seconds to a full minute. This happened with multiple games, all of which used to run perfectly fine. At first I thought it was a driver issue, so I went in and updated every single driver on my PC. This worked for about a week, then the issues came back again, but the drivers are still up to date. I've tried using antivirus software to see if I caught something, but everything was clean. I even went as far as reinstalling Windows on my hard drive, wiping everything for a clean slate. No success. I built this PC primarily for gaming, and this issue has made it a $700 paperweight for me. If anyone can help me figure out what's wrong with my machine, I would owe you many beers.

Hello

It seems that having to many usb device inputs can cause this issue. To many background programs running is an issue as well..

I've already closed all unneeded background processes. I tried again after unplugging everything except the keyboard and mouse. No change.

Strange that you built the PC but don`t know what PSU is in there, a PC is only as good as the PSU that powers it and if you can`t remember such important information the PSU can`t be anything special.
Thanks. Very helpful. I had a friend help me build it, and he knows more about the parts than I do. If you can't tell by my username, I'm a noob at this.
