    windows 10 PRO 1909 games Freezing


    If I had the money if burn my PC and make a you tube video of it.
    ( bag out windows 10 ) and poor for fuel on the fire...

    But back to the real world.


    I have 3 PCs similar specs. All work fine but one.

    The PC I am having issues with:

    Edition Windows 10 pro
    Version 1909
    OS build: 18363.836
    Intel Xeon E3 v3 1230
    32gb ddr3 1600
    GeForce GTX 680 2gb graphics card
    Asrock H87 performance motherboard

    The issue
    Far Cry3 freezes.
    You go to do something and the image is frozen on the screen. Its intermittent but 5 to 30 min it happens.
    If you press Ctl+Alt+delete the only thing you can do is sign out.
    Task manager will not run
    I had this issue then reinstalled windows.
    Deleted and re-installed Far Cry 3

    Also happens world war Z.

    Doesn't happen with far cry 4 or 5..
    Or Killing floor 2...

    I have 2 other pcs;
    windows 10 pro 1909
    Intel Xeon E3 v3 1270
    16gb ddr3 1600
    Radeon RX570 4GB latest drivers
    Asrock H97pro 4m


    windows 10 pro 1909
    Intel I5 4440
    16gb ddr3 1600
    GeForce GTX 680 2gb graphics card same drivers as pc with issues
    Gigabyte H97 some some something ITX

    These PCs work fine you can play games all day long.. NO Freezing.

    Only thing that is different is the chipset
    other than that anyone got an idea where to go next?
    window 10 18XX ?

    It could be caused by your DDR3 memory. The same thing was happening to me till I got a new system.

    Changed a few things.
    As suggested in a few other places about windows 10 and memory issues.

    Changed ram speed down to 1333 as its supported in the SPD and by motherboard.
    Changed Ultra Fast boot to fast boot.

    Only tested for about 30 minutes.
    So far no freezing.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Finally froze took an hour.
    checked windows logs

    nvlddmkm stopped responding

    so nvidia drive issue id say

    Looks like an unstable video card.

    Dosn't happen in windows 7.
    Dosn't happen in windows 10 1809...
    no issues in linux.

    Tried the card in another PC, fresh format same results...

    Found out Game mode was on in 1909....

    so its a Nvdia / windows 10 1909 issue - game mode issue
