    System hangs when scanning for new/changed hardware.


    Hi,

    My PC completely freezes when detecting hardware changes (device manager) after about 3-4 seconds.
    I've left it for 1h+ to see if anything happens over time, nothing.
    Tried it in safe mode, same problem.
    Removed geforce drivers, same problem

    When frozen, all lights (and my screens) stay on, pressing capslock on KB doesn't turn the capslock light on/off.
    The manually initiated crash still works though, that's how I got the memory dumps in the attachment (usually there is no dump at all and the only way to "fix" it is to press the reboot button several times)

    I've used the recommended tool (Attachment 41908) and the newer, beta analyzing tool (Attachment 41909) from the eightforums, just in case.

    Any help is really appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Christoph

    Hi CWagner,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    The reason why you manually initiated a BSOD crash is because of the freezes?

    Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
    These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

    Please remove some files from the D, E and G partition to increase the free space to at least 10-15%.
    Every partition needs at least 10-15% free space so Windows can do its thing in the background.
    warning   Warning
    Less free space could cause BSOD's

    Hi, thank you.

    Kinda. I did it to get a memory dump just in case it would help someone help me

    Regarding the startup items and the harddisks:

    I don't see how programs I use all the time could give my boot process trouble and start up time is not an issue.
    E is barely ever even accessed (I would know, it's loud) and I can't imagine that the lack of space only results in the device manager freezing windows while nothing else is problematic.

    I disabled them anyway and shoveled some space free with no change in the freezing behavior :/

    You need to be at the Performance and Maintenance section.

    The BSOD section is ONLY for those who are experiencing bluescreens.
    Forcing a BSOD doesn't help as this time it didn't contain much information.
