Win11 unstable, screen locks up and sometimes restart on it's own.

bdrmachine 1 Reputation point

I installed a new larger ssd and than performed a fresh Win11 install. Now my once stable pc locks up at times as if the mouse and keyboard stopped working, keeping the current monitor video intact. Other times it performs a reboot on its own. The timing between issues is very random but, not terribly frequent.

Please give me so pointers on what to look at to troubleshot.

    After Win11 freezes, does it automatically recover after a while? In this case, you can try to restart by pressing the power button.

    For Win11 to restart automatically sometimes, try:

    Open Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced System Settings > Check "Settings" in Startup and Recovery > Cancel "Automatic Restart".

    Alternatively, try updating drivers in Device Manager.

    Hope the information is helpful.
