Below is complete System Information
Up until yesterday, everything was fine. PC had been running great for a long time. No previous indications of any developing problem.
Then suddenly I heard a noise like a Brrrrrrrup (noise) and the PC froze.
I shut it down, took it outside and used compressed air to blow out any dust.
Now I can at least restart the system but occasionally and periodically, it freezes and I have to press the power button to shut it down.
I have backed up EVERYTHING just in case.
Now, I can get the system restarted and I can work normally for a while, then it freezes again.
I looked at the event logs and saw nothing that looked suspicious or indicated a potential problem that could cause this.
I looked over the SMART information and saw nothing abnormal.
All the fans seem to be working (Graphics card, CPU)
I checked the Ryzen 7 2700 running temp and the peak was 58C
Better post now before another freeze happens.....(Sure enough....it froze just after I saved and now I am back in...for now)
I'm suspecting the PSU but it's a decent one...nonetheless...it could be that.
I'll open up the PSU next and look for suspicious swollen Caps and check a few diodes and Mosfets.
My greatest fear here is a MoBo issue.
