I'm looking for a bit of insight from someone smarter than me and I hope you lot can help me.
I'm running a Windows 10 64 bit machine for some time and it has been working great. The last few weeks it has started to freeze at random points and now it is at the point where it freezes a with in a few minutes of booting to desktop. Now it does not completely freeze. I can move the mouse and shift focus on program, but any program I click on will be brought to the front and promptly freeze. If I bring the mouse to the taskbar the icon becomes the circle (the one that means it's working) but I can still move the mouse. There is no response from the keyboard.
I have run a scan for errors and bad sectors on the hard drive and that turned up nothing. I am running a memtest right now. It's at 80% and no errors yet.
Booting into safe mode will result in the same. It "freezes" within a few minutes, but I can still move the mouse.
Anyone got any idea what might be the cause of these symptoms?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as it is my gaming rig and I had not counted on having to buy a new one just yet.
EDIT: Memtest done, 0 errors.
