Windows 8.1 Hard Freezing (No BSOD logs)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've been recently having a issue where my computer is hard freezing. I've recently gotten two GTX 780s and have tested them individually and they hard freezing. Never had this issue before until I got the GTX 780s. It's probably just the graphics card's but do you guys have any ideas of any other potential causes? e.g software causing this problem.

In the past I have experienced hard freezes from a failing HDD. Good luck!

I have a SSD so I could rule that out right?

I have feeling it could also be related to maybe 8.1 update it happened in the past so maybe they screwed it again lol but just worth checking your drives health and then try testing RAM

I agree. In the past couple of months, MS has really screwed up big time with a lot of Windows Update patches. I've been effected by a couple of the rollouts, and the most recent one is again causing random locks on my PC usually over night. There is usually nothing in event viewer to really tip you off either. I usually just roll back the updates and wait another week or so for MS to patch he 'patches' and then give it another go.

Check to see if there is a new vbios for your 780s.
I recently had a similar issue with some win 8.1 updates and found an updated vbios in techpowerup that solved the issue.
Gigabyte has 80.80.xx updates posted at their site

Thanks, I don't think Zotac has anything yet for the 970's, but I'll keep that in mind. I've noticed that I often get a 'The system time has changed to...' 'Change reason: System time is synchronized with the hardware clock' eventid 1 Kernel General errors right before things go haywire. The time is always wrong initially that it sets it to. I wonder if my overclock is the problem or maybe the CMOS battery going haywire. I think it's the Windows Updates from the 15th of October.
