Computer Freezes but Mouse Still Works

Recommended Posts

Alright, sometimes in the past few days my computer would freeze; as in the browser, desktop icons, and Task Manager are unresponsive, and yet I could still move my mouse. Eventually I would turn off my computer and boot it up again and things would be fine.

Nothing is found when I run the "Threat Scan" from Malwarebytes, so I'm at a bit of a loss at what to do since I'm not particularly tech-savvy (My cousin had built the computer I'm using and it's recently had some stuff upgraded).

Following the example of another post, I downloaded and ran the "Farbar Recovery Scan Tool"  and I'll attach the the logs along with the Threat scan and what Speccy tells me my system is.

If you need anything else please include instructions on how to get it since I don't know how to do anything but use my web browser and play some games.

Please and Thank you for the help!

Hello @AdvancedSetup

Thank you for replying! However, I do not still need help with this issue. I had taken my PC to the repair shop and, after a bit of trial and error, concluded that the motherboard was finally dying. I wasn't too surprised since I had that computer since I was in high school and took the opportunity to upgrade and rebuild it. Hopefully I won't have cause to visit another repair shop for another 10 years!
