Resolved Question

Computer freezes quite often


I have installed fresh windows 10 into my computer after buying an SSD to replace my old SSHD. After the fresh installation my computer keeps having irregulary in appearance and length freeze spikes. Does someone have an idea what could be a cause of such a problem? I have tried to google the issue but nothing that i have tried seems to be unable to make the problem go away.

-I have already tried fresh install many times and it made no difference. Also windows hasn't found any errors in my hard drive/memory/windows files.
-Checked that SSD format is not IDE in bios
-Power options changed to be "better" for SSD
-Downloaded all drivers i have been able to find from manufacturers sites.


Power 550V
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Crucial DDR4 2400MHz 8GB
Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6GB Mini
Kingston A400 (SSD), 480gb

Thanks in advance!

Didn't even think it could be because of ryzen. Thank you sincerely for your help sir!

Not because it is.

In reply to: Thanks

These become very common issues for unstable Ryzen systems so you learn to start with the basics.

What was the reason for changing from a sshd to a ssd?

Did the machine also have problems with the sshd?

Reason to swap

In reply to: Ssd

My SSHD felt pretty slow occasionally. I play few different games regularly and I have understood that you need to use a software few times so that the SSHD recognizes to keep these files in the faster space. So when I keep changing the games the SSHD cannot keep up so I get the HDD loading time most of the time.

This is how I understood it but i can be wrong of course.

What your saying is true about the sshd

In reply to: Reason to swap

Let me rephrase my question.
When you were using the sshd did you see any of this....irregulary in appearance and length freeze spikes?

I didn't have this kind of freeze spikes but more common little freezes. It may also be that i changed the power settings right after installing the new windows 10 in hope of achieving even faster computer. I used the windows tools to see if my SSD would be broken but they found no issues with the SSD.

power setting

Put the power setting back to the way it was and see if anything changes.
