My computer kept freezing so as per instructions on the intel website, I disabled the Chipset SATA/PCIe RST Premium Controller. Computer is still freezing. I can't find anything that tells me to install something in its place or find another fix. Help!

Tell us about your computer:

 

What processor model number?

What is the model number of your device/motherboard?

What OS? Windows 10? What version? 1903?

Is this a laptop or desktop?

Have you checked your cooling system? Is it free of dust and does it have proper ventilation?

Have you updated your bios?

Are you using Optane memory?

 

As you can see, there is much we need to know before you can be helped.

Brand new Dell desktop with Inspiron 3670, 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8400 processor, 16 GB Intel Optane SSD memory, Windows 10. Called Dell first and they ran a test on the hardware. Told me it was a software problem and that I needed to call Intel. Called Intel, they told me it wasn't their problem, it was Dell's problem ….. ugh! Intel told me to send message out to community to get help. Meanwhile, I can't keep my computer from freezing up long enough to get through this message without having to shut off computer and start over!

Hello DBruc5,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel® Memory & Storage Support.

 

To further assist you we will appreciate if you can provide us with the following information:

 

  1. Would you mind to elaborate more about your PC freezing up statement, is your PC un-responsible or do you have any kind of error message?
  2. If it is as your OEM (original equipment manufacturer) Dell* claimed a "software issue", we advise you to back up your information and to work directly with them to return your PC to the factory state to discard any hardware issue.
  3. We will appreciate it if you can provide us a copy of the SSU logs to try to have a better understanding of the system configuration.

 

1- Go to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/ and download the software.

2- When finished downloading it, open it.

3- Attach the file obtained to your reply post.

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

 

Best regards,

The problem has not been resolved. I contacted Dell first when the computer started freezing. They ran diagnostics and I ran diagnostics on the hardware. Everything is fine. Dell told me it is a software problem and that I needed to contact Intel. After searching your website for answers, I disabled the Optane Memory after reading that it was causing a freezing problem. The screen freezes and I can do nothing but turn the computer off and reboot. I can't even install updates because it will freeze. I don't know what to do now.
