Hi everybody
I have a problem when i close applications the computers freezes for couple of seconds (sometimes i have to hard reset) and the audio lags. This pc isnt even a year old and i forgot to mention it sometimes happens when the computer is just idle or i am listening to music. And the oldest thing in the pc is the power supply. The freeze happens more when i close full screan applications.
And here are the specs:
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Gigabyte)
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor
Ram 16gb
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. PRIME A320M-A (AM4)
If you have any ideas let me know.

What bios are you running? The latest bios has specific fixes for the 3xxx processors.
Next you need to list ALL of the exact system specs. 16gig of ram does not tell us much however 2x8gig of corsair xxx123 would tell us a lot more. Post the exact brand and model# for ALL parts including the pw supply.

BTW if you decide to update a bios, be sure you FULLY understand the flashing procedure. The only way I ever update a bios on an asus board is by using EZFlash which is a utility built into the bios.

Will updating Bios remove my warranty?

No, updating your bios does not void your warranty however IF you screw it up and brick the board, there is no warranty. Any bios update is done at the owner's risk.

You have a very low end pw supply and whether or not it is causing your problem, IF it were me, I would replace it with a quality unit.

Any suggestion for a pw supply thats not too expensive?
