Hi there,
I'd like to post some questions about your issue.
1) When dyou experience these hangs and freezes? Does this happen at the start of the day or usually after using the computer for a while (playing games/browzing webs/ watching videos)?

2)When you say Bios screen, are you referring to the Bios setup screen or the bios splash screen (the one you'd see when you turn on your pc)

3) How were you able to bypass this said issue, allowing you to post this on HWZ?

Hi,

I first experience the screen freeze 3 days back, on 29/12/17. This happened when I first power on my PC, and it just hang at the welcome screen.

I did a forced restart and the screen did not come back on despite the CPU running and the welcome screen buzz playing.

This issue continued every time I experienced a crash and force restart. I have to switch off the power socket and on it again for my monitor to receive a connection from my desktop.

The crash occurs randomly, from gaming to watching videos to just playing Spotify.

Yes, it froze on the BIOS Screen and it even froze in Safe mode.

I was able to post this because the freeze comes and goes randomly. Once I was able to get it running again, it functions like always. Then the crash will come.

The symptom will begin with the screen tearing. Then BSOD stating the graphic driver has failed to start.

How do I test to both? Do I use the paper clip method for the PSU? How about the motherboard?

Paperclip method is not sure way of testing PSU. Get a good working one to test. If don't has, bring rig to Nigel at PC Care & Solution #02-32, SLS.

okay, sure thanks for the advice!

If there is a need for an upgrade, what would you recommend?

Hi, the entire setup was bought back in 2012. Not sure if warranty is still available though.

I realized... my set up is kinda similar to yours and i faced the same issue with BSOD... just not sure is it the same problem detected.
It gets quite bad at times, like just some reading or viewing of videos or playing Dota2 it will just hang, loud sound stuck at one note, then restart. Sometimes it restarts, sometimes it just keep trying to restart but nothing appears...

Built this at PC themes years back send it back for diagnostic recently but they couldn't find any issue when testing at their shop...

Let me know if you found a way to resolve this.

Hi all,

My PC is finally dead. Now the monitor would not even light up despite the cpu turning on and running.

I believe that I can most of my old stuff, such as my GPU a GTX 1060, SSD & HDD, monitors and speakers.

I think what I need is a new CPU, Mobo and RAM?
