Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
information is needed
I will update my PC every morning. Freezes of cursor are there but not too bad as it used to be.
This was happening to me under Windows 10 as well, I found out that one of my Hard Drives had developed a bad block. I ran GWscan and did a full drive scan which blocked out the bad sectors, then it was normal for a few days. Then it started again, and the drive had found more bad blocks. Under my Windows 7 partition this would not happen, but what would happen there is that my system would slow to a crawl with poor response.
I bought a new drive from NewEgg and moved that whole drive to the new drive, and it stopped for both 7 and 10. Under 10, the freezes always was an indication of Hard Drive problems.
If it is a system with a Solid State Drive, this does not apply, I've never had a SSD system on 10 so I could track down the issue. But it seems that Windows 10 freezes the system rather than show a BSOD. After a reboot, you can check event viewer for a blue screen event that didn't show visibly.
Edit/Clarification - I have four 1TB to 2TB drives attached to my system, and any one of those going bad will cause this issue, it doesn't need to be on only the system drive. Even USB drives too, but those are not as easily fixed with GWscan. Because for that program to run on the drive, the drive actually has to be on the SATA bus. I also use ViVard (On Hiren's Boot CD under Hard Drive Programs under the Dos Programs) when GWscan won't finish due to too many bad blocks.
Mine has stablised. I did update every day. Let me keep my fingers crossed. I use CC cleaner as well.
I haven't downloaded Filezilla FTP yet.
Try SmartFTP, if that's still made.
I will try. I found Filezilla easy to work with.
There is a FTP programme built in Win 10 too. Anyone has tried?
AH! You are right, it's in "GOD MODE"
It will freeze with a microsoft website at the bottom telling you to go there, then it reboots
There were a lot of updates on 19 and 20 October. Those have stablised the computer. Shameless Microsoft people. Test your software before despatching to users like me.
I read the amount of all post since beginning this thread. I feel identified (bad) because they present the same problems.
Which? Random freezing Windows 10. I've tried everything I know:
- Change Disk (Between SSDs and HDD)
- Test N combinations of the 4 modules of RAM, DUAL, SINGLE 1 module, 2, 4, etc. In addition, I also tried another DIM Kinsgton (easiest)
- Change video card performance by a child.
- With or without the internet.
- With or without WIFI connected.
- With or without mains cable.
- Change Processor. (8370 x 8120)
- Modifications to the BIOS settings by setting CPU, RAM, the PCIe2.0. Among them, all in automatic.
- Installed from scratch about 5 times.
- Modified configurations energy consumption.
- Applied review processes, such as cfg / scannow.
- Applied corrections in the Windows registry for errors led to the COM.
- I applied the netsh winsock reset
There are no errors in the Event Viewer
It freezes very often randomly.
I have Windows 10 PRO (Original) installed and come from Windows 7 (Pirate) haha, funny thing is I decide (for economic situation) do things right, and I buy this new Windows 10 and begins the ordeal. In Windows 7 I did not have this problem as all of you.
I really do not want to go back to 7, this well liked but not served. The only thing I have not changed to test is the MOBO.
Now, I have read their solutions, I applied, for example, what the pagefile.sys, what of uninstall certain programs. I'm missing about 4 driver for DriverMax and I am left without options.
I failed from newly installed blank (Windows only).
It is not temperature, of that I'm sure.
The only thing I can think of is going back a version of the BIOS software. I have the latest version of the manufacturer.
So different from you, it is that it has only frozen 2 times in the BIOS. This really is rare.
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...
