Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
what are your PC specs?
these are mine(its a newgaming pc i built)
AMD FX-9590 VISHERA 8-CORE 4.7 GHz 220W == CPU
XFX RADEON R9390X DIRECTX 12 8GB 512-BIT GDDR5 == Graphics Card
ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR FORMULA Z AM3+ 6GB/S ==MotherBoard
G.SKILL RIPJAWS Z SERIES 32GB (4*8GB) == Memory
EVGA 220-GS-1050-V1 80 PLUS GOLD 1050w
I KNOW FOR SURE THAT(EdIt posted too early): my pc would have performance issues if i didnt supply proper power and resources for functioning. it has yet to crash since i changed the power settings.
let me know

Reason: accidental post too early
The unplugging a fan was a bust... sortof... still freezing... but freezing more often..... however... CPU and MB seem to be running COOLER with one less fan, and overall smoother and actually a bit faster. I'm wondering if I should enable the Dynamic Processor Ticks again at this point as maybe that wasn't the problem (doesn't seem to be) and maybe the fan was the issue.
So I just rebooted out of running memtest for nearly 4.5 hours. That is at least 3 hours longer than this PC has ever run without Freezing. As you may know memtest boots of a CD (or usb). So it wasn't using Windows 10. So this would seem to point that the problem is indeed something with WIndows 10.
FWIW... It froze once doing this short post....
Yesterday every time it froze, when restarted, I ran HWInfo and started the logging. In examining the logs, there was nothing of note as it approached the freeze point (last entry) on each log.
This is very perplexing. I really don't know what to do. I can't work. It seems silly to throw out a new PC, not to mention it's a DAW (although I haven't been able to use it that way yet)... At least a dozen pieces of registered software that needs to be calibrated and that interact with each other, not to mention I'll have to unregister them from this computer before I re-install them... I learned that mistake the first time. Just a royal pain. In thinking back.. I had some issues with Windows 10 install "freezing" at certain points after the "installing windows 10" section and it took three or four attempts to actually complete the install.. I feel silly now, but I didn't realize it wasn't the "install" just freezing for whatever reason... the PC was actually freezing then, and not just an "install" glitch.

In my area there are several pc repair shops that offer free estimates, they run diagnostic tests and then they tell me what the issue is and I then decide weather to pay to have it fixed or take it home and repair it myself.
Hi, Last weeks i noticed some bad behavior of my computer, i start to have hardlocks sometimes by doing simple tasks like open browser and watch a video. These freezes are related to "Kernel-Processor-Power Event 54 - task 39"
i have the last firmware flashed on my uefi, the 3.0 version downloaded and installed from uefi
i also have the last updates instaled on windows 10 x64 (not the ones from insider preview)
i have checked my windows files with SFC and DISM Commands, there is no errors on my installation
i have checked for malware and virus, to be 100% sure there is nothing that can harm and cause the freezing, it's clean
all my drivers are updated and unused stuff like onboard lan and realtek audio are disabled
my processor power saving settings on windows 10 are set to performance, 100% usage all time
My processor OC is stable, i work with 3d rendering and gaming on this machine and never had problems
i also ran memtest and didn't found a single error
i remove my memory sticks from mobo and put they again
my computer is:
asrock x99x killer
intel core i7 5820k
16gb ram ripjaws
i don't do any extreme overclocking, i use the uefi 4ghz preset with xmp, i have 100% sure this is a windows thing because i didnīt had these issues too often like i was facing from ~may 2016 to now. Start get some BSOD here and there, now is the freezings
things what i tried recently:
downgrade uefi to 2.10 firware
upgrade the uefi to 3.02a beta (recomendation of asrock forum moderator)
clear CMOS by change the jumper position
No luck, i really running out of ideas here, things i going try next: join the insider preview and download the windows aniversary
this start annoying me because i can't full work without get worried if i will lose my work by stupid windows freezings... happens twice last week and once this week already.
Edit: installed the win10 anniversary from insider preview, then left the program
let's see if i still get hardlocks, until now things looks fine, but lets see this week how computer will perform
i will post updates
EDIT: installed windows 10 anniversary and... freezing continues, had one yesterday at night
what left try? one beta bios to update (x99x 3.10) or format and clean install, this going to take me days to reinstall all my stuff, but better than having a computer that freeze randomly and keep loosing work.

My pc is almost identical to yours and have had having g the same hard locks. Nothing seems to work. I've tried everything I these last 62 pages. Fresh installs, scans, even sacrificed a chicken....
Okay, I think I'm onto something. I was watching my Resource Monitor on the CPU tab, just kinda staring blindly if truth be told, and noticed that CPU's 2 and 3 were intermittently going "parked." Long story short, I did a little research and while this may be "ok" on a laptop on battery, there doesn't seem to be a need to do this on a PC. In fact once I "unparked" all CPU's and rebooted, I noticed my temperatures were all a bit lower and all of the CPU's were running at lower % useage... kinda obvious if you think about it.
Now there were several instructions for "unparking" which is primarily related to Windows 7, but still work in WIndows 10. DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND GOOGLE UNPARKING CPU IN WINDOWS 10. I chose the lazy way of just grabbing an App called Unpark-CPU-App. Now I can't recommend this yet (or ever) as I'm not sure it's the solution, but I have been watching videos, on facebook, checking mail etc.. for the past hour which is longer than I have been able to do anything most of the past several days. I'm watching the Resource Monitor windows on the CPU tab, and things idle MUCH lower across the board (cpu, memory, wifi) than they did before and of course, no more intermittent CPU parking.
This app lets you Unpark and Park, and USE AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!! The author recommends trying the newer "Beta" version, but I used the more simple older version that has a simple "UNPARK ALL" button.

Two hours in.... froze... I didn't notice that CPU was slowed slightly so while I don't really know much about OVERclocking, I set the bios settings to "manual" and then selected what appeared to be the default settings. Not sure what this will do... maybe nothing. Just pulling straws at this point.
gonna check this out, found two parked cores here
Edit: after did this, yesterday i haven't any freezing anymore (usualy had 2 or 3 in a day)
still too early to say anything, but for now this fixed
lets see for the rest of the week

I don't want to jinx it, but I think we may have a winner.
I found a reference that suggested turning off C-States in the BIOS. You can google the details, but unlike OVERClocking, these are the states of "reduced" CPU power. The options are somewhat buried in the BIOS under CPU configuration, and it may not be the best thing to do on a Laptop, but I have a desktop.
So far since setting to disable them, over SIX hours of up time. Fingers crossed, the longest average up time before a freeze before this change was about 1.5 hours.
Also, I did an sfc /scannow and if found files to repair. I know this didn't correct the freezing, as I had done it before, but my guess is that files got corrupted during any one or more of the many freezes, so running this every now and then after a freeze is a good idea.
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
GTX 970 4GB
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...
