Hi Tech-sperts

Recently had a PC desktop given to me because it was crashing randomly all the time. I Put brand new SSD(removed old HDD), fresh Win10 install, removed graphics card and using on board graphics, updated ALL drivers, and will still crash at random times.

If I overwork the RAM, open 1000 browsers make PC work hard it wont crash. But then it can be idle for 4 hours and crash. OR I can work it hard and it will crash. Or it can sit idle for 3 days before crash.

Doesn't matter if it's a game, or a movie or only thing running is a word processor or Excel it can crash. Again all at random. It once idled for 10 days before crash and I've worked it hard for 2 days before a crash

I even tried swapping RAM slots (I have 4x4=8GB, and 4 slots) but could not due to certain order for Ram.

Wondering what suggestion or idea you have next?

Also if I try to run a windows ram test PC crashes then or it will do the test and then not reboot

hyperfusion Ram (Red)
i5 processor

computer is about 4 years old. It's super quick and runs like a dream... Until it crashes of course.

Thanks for any and all help

Have you checked Event Viewer to see if anything is revealed there? For the RAM test, I would suggest using Memtest booting from a USB drive, so you can cut Windows out of the equation entirely; especially when it's prone to crashing.

Also, purely from a personal perspective: when I had all sorts of unexplained reboots & crashes on an old Win 7 PC, I pinned it down eventually to a failing PSU. That might be worth considering, too.

So I FINALLY got around to doing the memtest86 ... And to my suprise, in the first 30 seconds i had over 30 errors. So I quit the test. Ram will be my first change and I will go from there

Thank you.
