Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
Seems to work fine for me now. Running for bout a day now. My Graphics was the culprit. Disabled my Nvidia and using Intel HD now. Spec: Gigabyte ultrabook. Core i5, 128gb mSATA SSD, 1tb HDD, 16gb ram, Nvidia 640m gpu. I tried every solution in this thread didn't work, system froze past login screen or got blank screen after windows boot logo. Whenever I tried installing Nvidia drivers, system froze. So I tried disabling in device manager and works fine now. I hope Microsoft fixes this soon, I use a lot of Adobe suite apps that need gpu.
I have installed windows 10 3 times on my main computer. Each time it performs well for a day or two, then starts freezing, and Microsoft 2013 programs also begin to 'not respond' and hand for several minutes. I decided that I could not live with this since this is my main work computer, so I am now back on the 8.1 Pro page again. I think there is so much to like about Windows 10, and I will continue to be a insider, but I cannot work with a computer that is not reliable! The same computer has Windows 10 insider edition installed on it and I have no problems. So the hardware is the same, the difference is I have many software programs on Windows 8.1 that may be problematic for Windows 10! I hope in a month or two I will be able to go back to Windows 10 when some additional problems are resolved. For those of you who have great success and find it 'work-able' with you day-to-day chores, KUDOS.
Same for me
At least, procedure to go back works like a charm
Try to plug out any USB devices you have and then plug them back in. It sounds weird but I had similar problems on two machines with different USB devices and both times it helped.
You should try an installation repair. In other words do another Win 10 upgrade over the Win 10 installation. ( It fixed several other problems I had)
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
Unplug all usb devices. Expansion boards. etc.
After the upgrade plug in each usb item and see if it freezes. If it does, it's probably that devices driver.
I have been working on a pc all day. Finally figured it out to be a bios update. Updated bios and all is great now. Mine was freezing on a clean start but not on a restart
My windows started to hang right after I've installed Acronis True Image
I've found out, that it happens right after I've installed Acronis True Image. If I disable acronis services windows works properly.
Good day fellow members, I too have joined the club.
After reading and trying almost every suggestion in this thread I am still freezing in infinite glory.
As I don't feel like going back to Win 7 and I am adamant on staying with Win 10, I will be trying a reset later. A simple (yet lengthy) Reset This Pc along with zeroing my hard drive thereby removing all my files and apps, in essence a clean install (which is what I should have done in the first place) and hopefully that solves it. My freezing started happening 2 days ago and it was quite aggressive. Prior to that, I have had Win 10 for almost a month and it was perfect! No freezing or errors whatsoever.
I believe my freezing problem is a result from some applications I have recently installed, like google chrome and Firefox for example, both were installed 4-5 day's prior and both were uninstalled after the freezing began. Then I thought skype was causing issues as it froze when I started skype up thus I removed that too and the problem was still there. This morning I had enough. I will do the rest and hopefully it will fix everything.
I will post a reply here once I have done the reset and installed all my needed applications (barring firefox and chrome).
A fellow freezing friend.
P.s I have never installed nor made use of Acronis True Image and when I did uninstalls I made sure to remove all files related to that app/program.
Edit: Problem persisted still. Using my repair disc I made of my Win 7 and the Image and going back to a system that was stable.
I liked Win 10, but I need my pc to be stable. Good luck to everyone who is still sitting with this issue.

Reason: Update on current state of affairs.
I have an ASUS K40IN laptop. I have upgraded it from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10 Home and it started to hang randomly. I have also tried a fresh install too. Anyway, when I reverted the display adapter driver to older WHQL driver it became a random restarts. I have tried all solutions/suggestions in this forum and also others but all failed.
The random hang/restart is really frustrating so I decided to updated the bios (heard is risky updating bios) before revert it back to Win 7. After the update, the hang/restart seems no more! I will let it run to see if is really OK.
One thing I observed is that the HDD led now is flashing lightly all the time and seems like that in Win 7. I think before the bios update it is not. Not sure what it is doing but it resolved the problem.
During the first three attempts at installing windows 10, the process has frozen at 32% total installation and 6% on the "drivers and features" section. The entire process freezes and no animations play. No errors, after reboot from the freeze it...
I am on an Alienware Aurora R3 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I ran the media creation tool to upgrade to Windows 7, and it gets as far as 100% copying data. It then restarts, the dots circle once, and then they freeze. I force a restart and it...
Does anyone have this problem? A friend of mine recently installed Windows 10 and the computer started to freeze because of it. It was then downgraded back to Windows 8 but the problem persisted.
I have an ASUS Desktop with a Core i7 3770, 16GB Ram, an Nvidia GTX 970, and a 250 GB Intel SSD and a 2 TB HDD. Windows 8.1 is loaded on the SSD. I am trying to update to Windows 10 with the free upgrade icon in the bottom left corner since it say...

So I have had an earlier build of Windows 10 TP on my system installed onto my SSD and I was using that as my daily driver for about a month or so. It worked great and I was...
