    Hello my computer keeps crashing, the screen freezes and the last sound that played just keeps playing in a terrible way. I checked reliability report and it says all the crashes are hardware related problems. Sometimes when I tried to boot up my computer just starts up and doesn't post, my keyboard and mouse don't light up. Sometimes it does post but it posts "last overclock failed" or something along those lines. It is extremely frustrating to deal with.

    PC Specs
    Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce 770
    Hard drive: Western Digital Blue 1TB
    PSU: EVGA 500 Watt
    CPU: AMD FX 8320 Black Edition 3.5 Ghz
    Case: Corsair SPEC 02
    OS: Windows 10
    Ram: 12 GB (I had 16 but the other 4 went into hardware reserved.)

    I disabled the turbo boost for my CPU so it wouldn't suck a lot of power.

    Please help with what's wrong on my computer, I have been getting these crashes for the past year.

    Are you currently or have you been OC'ing the computer?

    In any case, assuming not, I'd suspect a motherboard (BIOS) or power issue.

    You could try restoring the BIOS back to factory default.

    I'd also consider upgrading the power supply. Verify with your actual hardware, but the GTX 770, for example, requires a 600w minimum power supply ( https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-770/specifications ).

    I did not overclock my computer and the last time I tried to overclock my PC was around 2 years ago. Everything is base speed right now. I was thinking it was the power supply as well, just not 100% sure.
