Hey all, I have a bit of a noobie question. PC specs are in my signature below and the system was built around December 2015. Nothing has ever been overclocked (probably a waste of capable parts, I know). Lately (within the past 6 months or so) I've been having issues where my PC would randomly freeze and either restart itself, or it'd just be stuck displaying the current image (frozen) and I'd have to manually restart. This happens both during gaming and also just light web use i.e. watching videos on Facebook. I have not been able to replicate or find a trigger for the issue and it seems to happen randomly. When it would freeze it used to just be stuck on whatever was on my screen at the time, but in the past few days I've had the screen turn a solid color also (had white the other day, and just all black/greyish earlier). The only real "pattern" that I've noticed is that once it freezes or reboots itself once, I can usually go the rest of the evening without it happening again. During gaming, the machine still runs flawlessly except for the random reboots here and there, but there's no artifacting, stuttering or discoloration at all when it's running normally. I've never had this issue before so I'm at a bit of a loss on where to start troubleshooting, or in figuring out whether its hardware vs. software related. One thing to note is that my house had a pretty bad power surge in December 2016; most of my appliances (refrigerator, microwave, speakers, etc.) were completely fried after that. The PC was plugged into a power strip and has worked fine after, up until about 6 months ago. Perhaps its possible that some circuitry was damaged during the surge and has just been slowly deteriorating over time? Or perhaps the two events are not even related at all. I do watch my fair share of...adult content so I am not ruling out corrupted software either, although nothing ever comes up on my scans. If anyone has advice on where to start troubleshooting, I'd greatly appreciate it! Or...I'll just this as an excuse to build a new rig.
