Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Update: 11 days later and still running great. No issues at all. This Ryzen 3 2200G is a fantastic little chip. For fun, I contacted Mushkin about the issue. I spoke to an engineer about the issue. He suspects a faulty controller in the SSD. He gave me an RMA (even though it is not under warranty) a...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

I'm glad the problem appears to be fixed, and I hope it stays that way! I'm curious if you'd be willing to try something to indulge my curiosity. Now that you know the Mushkin drive was bad, I'd like to see the results of benchmarks and diagnostics. I don't have any bad drives in my possession, so ...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Thanks Dragontamer. I had a Mushkin drive that failed after 8 months, I got an RMA and sent it back. They sent me this Mushkin Reactor SSD (its not the same drive, they sent me a different model as they don't make the old drive anymore.) Never used it until now. It was in a retail package, but maybe...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

UPDATE: So, the new M.2 drive arrived. I took out the Mushkin Reactor SSD and unplugged the WD Blue drive. Cleared all BIOS settings and installed the M.2 drive. Loaded Windows 10 Pro. Loaded drivers in the order we discussed previously. While I was at it I installed another fan (there were no overh...

So....it is still doing it........:( so not the Motherboard.... I went through suggestions above that you all sent me. First, I disconnected the data drive (WD Blue.) Still have the same issues. I looked at event logs and see a few entries that say something like "wrote to ***.log and it was su...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

All, I want to thank you for everything. You guys are amazing! So, a friend of mine used to own a computer store years ago. I felt bad calling him because we have kind of lost touch. My wife kept telling me to call, so I did. We talked a while and he said he could come over. So, he walks in the door...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

My drive is a WD Blue 7200 RPM. It worked fine in the last system. I’m going to just unplug it and see what happens.

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Update: just froze again while he was playing need for speed. Went nearly 40 minutes with no problem. Then froze, unfroze, then froze again. About 10 seconds later it informs and worked fine. This is really weird. I’ll keep going down the list of suggestions. I had done a fresh load of Win 10. It wa...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Okay, not sure if this means anything, but before memtest, I saw that my from USB 3 case headers weren’t working. I plugged the cable in backwards. Flipped it around and it’s working. Could that have caused any of this issue? Update: Memtest86 passed. Went through it a couple of times. I changed sle...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

just brew it! wrote:
At least some of the current WD Blue drives do that as well. Need to extend the timeout setting in the drive firmware to get them to behave sanely.

They're still better than Seagate's SMR garbage if you're looking for inexpensive bulk storage.


How do you do this?

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Wow. Lots to try. Thanks everyone!

I just made a memtest86 boot usb thumb drive. Booted off of it and running memtest now.

Next I will go to event timers.

Then I’ll check the hard drive states. Maybe start by just unplugging data drive.

I’ll report results.

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

I just built a Ryzen 3 2200G system for my daughter based on that exact CPU and mobo. Have you updated the EFI to the latest yet on the motherboard? The board I got was still running the first release. If you have, I'd start with a Memtest86 run. Eliminate memory errors as a potential cause. We're ...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

If it proceeds to work fine after the pauses, I don't think it's hardware related. That sounds like some piece of software is trying to do something and won't let the system do anything else until it either completes or times out. Possibly some app is trying to phone home? The event viewer would be...

Re: New Ryzen 3 2200G build - random freezes/pauses

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I updated the BIOS to 2.00 (the latest on the website.) Okay, I'll run Memtest86 on it. I did run Prime95 for a while and it seemed fine. I'll report back.

Re: Kingston SSDnow V300 120GB rip off advice

I picked up a 256MB Mushkin ECO SSD a few weeks ago (about $65.) Pretty fast but I have only had it a short while. I'm not sure of the availability in Brazil though. Hopefully it lasts a while.
