    Hello, I am looking for some help with my PC.

    I am using windows 10
    MSI gaming 970 motherboard
    GTX 1050 msi GPU
    No name rams (3x2gb)
    AMD fx 8350 CPU
    VS650 Corsair PSU
    Samsung evo 850 SSD 256gb
    2 additional HDD 1tb and 512gb

    The problem is that sometimes when playing games they just randomly freeze and then pc acts very slowly.
    Afterwards when I try to reset PC, it doesn't boot past windows logo. ( the circle spins for sometime and then black screen, no mouse cursor and unresponsive). After leaving pc alone for a while it turns on like nothing happened.
    Before this started it kept freezing and asking for restart. Afterwards it prompted me message "reboot and select proper boot device...".
    Thought it migh be SSD fault, but when thing like that happens I can't even boot to bootable USB with windows setup inside. (it just keeps spinning circle forever).

    Also my RAMs are very old, might they be the fault here?

    Things I did try:
    *Using cmd from bootable disk to chkdsk and etc things.
    *Reseating RAM and other cables inside.
    *Reinstalling windows.
    *Cleaning computer from dust.
    *Updating bios.
    *Updating drivers.

    Any help would be apreaciated.

    I would recommend testing your RAM as follows and hard drive thoroughly as the first steps.

    Test Hard drive:
    Please Download and Run SeaTools for Windows

    1. Once it starts it will scan for all drives connected to your computer.
    2. Select drive you want to test.
    3. Select the Long Generic Test under the Basic Tests menu
    4. When the test is complete you will see the result under Test Status
    5. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.
    6. Provide the Results in your reply.

    Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    Testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
    Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing
    Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes
    When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes take a picture and post an image and upload to your reply
