Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
same is happening to me
I did this too and i gave the control back very weird
Had exactly same problem as TS.
Downloaded last Intel Chipset driver for my Shuttle XPS (Windows 10 x64), fixed this problem for me so far. 3 days without lockups.
Shuttle Global - SZ87R6
I also had exactly the same problem.
Dell Latitude E6420.
Updated BIOS and also Intel Chipset driver, no freezing for 6 days and counting now...
another update .... I am experiencing crashes only when playing games .... both both CPU and GPU temp are below 65C
Do you have events related to this ?
I would recommand doing a driver verifier test : Driver Verifier - Windows 10 hardware dev and analyse the dump files with WhoCrashed afterward so you know what cause issues. Don't forget that u have to reset the verifier after you got the crash by booting in safe mode. You may have to do this a bunch of times untill you don't have problems anymore. Not sure if it will help but who knows. Maybe wait for someone else answers.
Windows 10 was an unstable mess for me until I completely reinstalled, not from any system reset, but by using the media creation tool and creating a USB boot installation. Ever since I did that, completely removing everything, W10 has been running like a dream. No doubt some more problems will crop up but for now this is the only way I could get things running smoothly.
Before doing this, neither sfc /scannnow or DISM commands would work.
I did a clean install too (not upgrade) .... it is improving (maybe with updates MS is pushing) but still not perfect as Win7 or Win8
[I have this problem as wellabout 10 days ago
I removed my USB external drive and changed my settings
so that the system never hibernates and the screen never sleeps.
I also removed the screen saver and background picture.
After having done these things the system has not frozen since and it is alomost 2 weeks now.
I will now try to add back each of these changes to try to pinpoint the cause.
Very good info and I am keeping a copy of all this... thanks..
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...
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.3GHz

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...
