Is that you accept you will do the work as to BIOS, drivers and more. But don't despair yet. I use a guide to help me get my PC up to date before I'm calling the maker for the RMA.
1. The BIOS shall be current. As to settings I start with the defaults. Some boards require changes but I can not know this as there are so many boards and BIOS versions. For a start, current BIOS and defaults.
2. Drivers. Since W10 does replace your drivers without asking you...
BREAK. Complete step 1 and test. If step 1 fixed it, don't continue with this step 2.
As I was saying, W10 can replace your drivers so I disable W10's Driver Update (how is on the web) then I install the motherboard, audio and video in that order.
3. Still failing? Time to talk to the makers about the issues and RMA what they feel is failing.
Hey folks - first post here so apologies if this is not formatted correctly.
Last year I built my first computer for casual gaming; mainly WoW. Certainly not an expert but I did a decent amount of research building this computer and followed manuals pretty religiously. However, pretty much since I made the computer I've had freezing issues which I have been able to isolate to occurring only during game play. There doesn't seem to be any consistency regarding when during a game the freeze happens; I could be playing for 5 minutes or more than 5 hours. I believe I have updated my drivers and I can't see an issue with overheating. I'd consider myself a lay person in the computing world so I figured I'd reach out to see if anyone has any idea what is causing this?
Thrown some of my hardware below in-case that is helpful. Really appreciate everyone's time reading/responding in advance.
