Re: NVDA sometimes loses control and needs to be restarted
I have noticed this on a system with low powered ccpu mostly, however you may have a memmory leak in your brouser, and may need to update it.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I find after chewing through some sites that there are some sites that use more memmory than they should or are badly coded and not much you can do about that.
If this is happening generally though, the first thing I'd probably do is check for broken fans and dust.
I'd also check and see what is loaded at startup and what you absolutely need to run in the background, background apps, etc.
Skype, alexa and a few other massive apps use resources like crazy.
In certain situations my system can become quite unstable when I have 1 or 2 or several large apps open for an extended period so I usually don't do this even on my new ish workstation.
You could have a bad drive, I guess, bad ram or though these usually do more than bog the system.
You could have a bad os install, but if windows is that bad constantly it may not be windows.
Of course you won't know till you reformat and reinstall windows however if its being like this, does any other computer in the house do it.
Before fibre it was probably a line issue, I'd also check network and wireless hardware, restart the router, and go to speedtest.net/apps/cli and run speedtest -p no on all connections to get the upload and download speed for each.
Depending what that is it could be the network or wireless channel but unlikely.
My thing would be failing hardware of some sort, check firmware and driver updates and see what we see.
It could also be a slow burn in the cpu or power supply or a stuck fan blade, you need sightlings to look in the box physically but any slow burn could end up with a dead box with no recovery either as a client I had found out the hard way.
