    Random freezes


    Attachment 86223

    I have been facing random freezes for past 1 week and it has been really severe now. I am facing every 20 minutes or so this past couple of days. I completely wiped my drive deleted all partitions and reinstalled windows 10 today. The issue is less frequent now but it is there to stay. Any suggestions?

    Specs:
    AMD FX 9590
    Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z
    Mushkin Enhanced 16GB
    H100i GTX
    2x GTX 960 EVGA SSC
    2TB WD Blue
    Anted 750W PSU
    Windows 10 Education edition

    No dumps so hard to debug.

    I suggest using Clean Boot, see if that helps to identify the problem.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I did upload the debug zip.How do I get you the System dump?

    Also clean boot is the first thing I try when I have major issue like this. That's how I came to the conclusion that it might be nVidia drivers causing the problems. I rolled back to the version from last month and the issue seems to be very minimal now. May be one random freeze a day. Disabling Link State Power Management in power option helped a lot too.

    Freezes seldom generate dumps unfortunately. If there are none in C:\Windows\minidump then nothing you can do about it.

    You are currently running version 368.39 of the GeForce WHQL driver. You could try the current Beta driver: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us

    GeForce Windows 10 Driver BETA

    or try a few of the older drivers"
