    Constant freezing/lockups with mouse/keyboard usage in windows 10


    This will be a little lengthy, so I apologize beforehand. I have been having constant problems with windows 10 freezing. The problem started in the beginning of January, but it is possible that my computer was not used in the past two months. This computer is primarily a gaming computer and I was extremely busy for the past couple of months, so if I did use it, it would have only been a handful of times. When I started using the computer in the beginning of January the computer started out working just fine. Then windows installed a few updates and I installed a video game. Then I started having a few computer freezes, but they were few and spread out. I originally thought the problem was just related to the game because the crashes usually happened around the times when i was loading or closing the game. However, that was just about all I was doing at the time. The problem also became significantly worse very quickly. I do not know if a meltdown update was applied or not. The fall creators update was applied, but I have since removed that update during my troubleshooting ventures.

    On to the actual problem. After booting my computer, my computer freezes after 12 minutes. I measured the time from when the log in screen first shows up until the computer freezes. It is almost exactly twelve minutes every time. The variation is small enough that it could just be a difference in when I hit the start button for the timer. The computer freezes, but I can move the mouse around and use the keyboard. Windows can generally be minimized and maximized, but nothing can be closed. If a file is transferring, installing, or downloading, that obviously freezes. 90% of the time the only solution is to hold the power button. There are rare occasions where it will pull itself out of the freeze, but the computer has serious limitations after that. The are also times where the computer completely freezes and not even the mouse will move. If it pulls itself out of a freeze, files will not always save or transfer. This has caused problems during my troubleshooting because I cannot use software to try and log the issue because the files will not save. Sometimes the file explorer will show folders, but not text. The drives sometimes show a blank white page with no text or the usual graphic. The computer can then freeze again at any moment and it will never pull itself out of that freeze. Task manager cannot be opened during the freeze and if it was previously opened, it cannot end tasks. Oddly enough, if the computer pulls itself out of being frozen and I already have a video game (Elder scrolls online at the moment) running, I can continue playing that game without too much trouble, but trying to do other tasks or even restarting that game may not work and may cause the computer to freeze and need to be shut down with the power button. It seems like trying to multi-task increases the chances of the computer freezing again.

    At first, I suspected a hardware issue, but I have gone through numerous troubleshooting suggestions and nothing has helped. I ran a windows check on the memory and hard drive. I pulled a memory stick and tested each of them one at a time. I switched hard drives. I tried a clean install on my main hard drive (SSD) and a backup hard drive (SSD). I removed the windows fall creators update. I have tried booting into safe mode. I ran a program from intel to check my CPU. I have tried numerous other suggestions that I found online, but I cannot remember them all because they are things I would not normally know to try. When I used my old ssd, it still had windows 7 on it. I did not test it very thoroughly, but when windows 7 was running on my other hard drive, I did not encounter any freezing issues. It should have frozen at least twice. I figured that my hard drive must have been the problem, so I installed windows 10 on that hard drive. I immediately ran into a freezing problem once windows 10 was installed. Tomorrow (or later today actually), I am going to try installing Ubuntu and see if the computer still freezes. At this point, I suspect the problem is windows 10. The only other thing I can think of would be the motherboard because the freezes almost seem like everything just stops responding. The CPU, Ram, and disk drive usage do not spike during the freezes. There are some windows errors in the event viewer that show the disk drives not responding like they should, but that makes sense considering the computer is frozen.

    I would appreciate any suggestions.

    To anyone who reads this in the next few minutes, I will update this post with the requested zip file in a few minutes. i have to restart my computer to be able to attach the file. Yes, I wrote this on my broken computer.

    Zip file


    Sorry it took a while to get the zip file uploaded. I made that post before I went to sleep and didn't know it would need moderator approval. I can't find a way to edit my first post, so I'll put the file here.

    Edit:
    I feel I should mention that the issue is not the graphics card or power supply. Both of those have been changed recently.

    Thanks for the assistance. Hopefully I have everything you asked for. I know this isn't technically a BSOD, but I saw other people referred here for freezing issues.

    5) Chkdsk found some issues, but I'm not sure how significant they are. I ran chkdsk recently and it came back with no issues. My computer keeps demanding chkdsk because I keep having to force it to shut down. I think chkdsk already fixed the issue with drive E:. For the included file, I ran chkdsk on C:, where the problem is. I know there are disk errors that show up in the event viewer, but I have tried switching hard drives.

    7) Is there a particular reason I uninstalled Comodo? I can't click the Comodo link because I need my registration to be approved first.

    8) I have backed up my important files. I do not really have a backup image. Although, there may be a windows 7 image in my system reserved partition. I can perform a clean install. I have done several already. My problem started when I booted the computer at the beginning of January after not using it for a couple of months. I am pretty sure that windows updated to 1709 shortly after that. That is about when this problem started. I have since tried removing 1709. Currently, windows says my build version is 1703, so I believe I was successful.

    16) I don't think your instructions are clear for these directions. I cannot right click on startup type at all. I can only open properties for individual startup types. I also do not see the name "windows error reporting service" anywhere. I included a picture of the window in case that helps, but I am unclear on what you need me to do.

    For startup and recovery > system failure > un-check automatically restart
    For startup and recovery > default operating system > check time to display list of operating system 30 sec
    For Ccleaner > un-check memory dumps and windows log files
    The chkdsk was from 1/14/2018.
    Please repeat the chkdsk /x /f /r on each partition/drive:


    C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk /x /f /r
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock current drive.


    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Type: Y
    reboot

    In the left lower corner search type services > view the row for windows error reporting service > scroll to the startup type column > right click > left click on properties > post an image into the thread

    For the clean install the operating system will be upgraded to 1709.

    If you want to make a backup image that can be done with Macrium: (free edition)

    There are default settings after a clean install that will need to be modified as above.

    After the clean install allow Windows updates. Do not install any drivers, software, applications, firewalls , etc.
    Report into the thread whether there is freezing when using only Windows updates of non-Microsoft drivers.

    If there is no freezing plan to add the drivers slowly and see if there is any freezing. For example adding 1 driver every four hours.

    Eventually the computer should have a clean install and all up to date drivers and no files and no applications.

    The aim is to eliminate or reduce confounding factors.
    So take this at a slow pace so that you have a good sense of the before and after for each driver.

    So none of the individual modifications need to be made now if you are going to perform a clean install. After the clean install check these areas to make the modifications.

    Please fix the file system on the drives with chkdsk /x /f /r before performing the clean install.

    I don't know why you only ended up with chkdsk from 1/14. It really only wanted to give me that chkdsk for some reason. I think chkdsk for all drives should now be included, but I had trouble getting powershell to put them into a text file. I am still having trouble figuring out what you want me to do with windows error reporting service. I don't see windows error reporting service when I search for services. I have included a screenshot of that. Should I do the fresh install now or after I include the screenshot of windows error reporting service? What do you mean by fixing the file system before doing a fresh install? You mean run chkdsk first? I will have to edit this post with the log collector because I have to restart first. I did the other things you asked.

    Edit: The log collector file is now uploaded.

    The drive file systems have been fixed.
    All of the Windows default settings will be modified as needed after the clean install.
    The fixing of the drive file system and the clean install will eliminate many confounding factors.

    Powershell is not needed at this time.

    The logs reported problems with Windows defender:

    The drives are using MBR which is Legacy BIOS.
    UEFI BIOS is faster and offers higher security.
    If you want to you can modify the BIOS to UEFI before the clean install.
    The format will then be GPT.
    With GPT you can have more partitions too.

    Was the Windows upgraded from 7 or 8 during the free perriod or was it an OEM(original equipment manufacturer)?

    I will do a clean install. I haven't messed with the bios since the computer was built. I had help with building it so I had no idea it wasn't UEFI bios. I originally bought windows 7 when I built the computer about 5 years ago. I originally bought a 120gb hard drive. It was too small for my needs so I made an image/backup of the drive and transferred everything to a 500 gb drive. I more or less left the 120gb drive alone because I had a 1tb hard disk drive for storage. The 500gb drive was updated during the free windows 8.1 upgrade and then again during the free windows 10 upgrade. The 120gb drive just sat at windows 7 because I never bothered to upgrade it. This computer has been running windows 10 stable for a long time now. I didn't just recently upgrade.

    Hmmm. I appreciate the link, but I've already struggled through the hell of making the drive convert. Guides didn't work for whatever reason. Anyway, I think I made it work. I'm now testing to see if it crashes before installing anything.
