Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
I haven't had a freeze in almost one year. There are many things that you can try to stop lockups. I collected them into one free illustrated tutorial (updated in December 2016):
Now another pc which never froze before has started freezing after windows update..
going to roll back 2 updates and turn off update all together. Only Solution i see from my end
I found the solution. My problem was a bad/faulty contact in my case. Ran the setup from outside of the case, no crash. For those with a desktop computer, it's worth a try.
It has been a while and the issue continues to exist. Will there ever be a patch to fix it once and forever? There are numerous reasons triggering this issue, just found out that one of the users also reported to have it fixed by Turning OFF location services (here)
Freeze to black screen...
I'm not sure my issue is the same as this one. In my case, if I walk away from the PC for a few hours and leave it on, or if I put it to sleep (it wakes for some reason), when I come back to it, it is on, the screen is blank, and I get nothing, and have to hard shut down.
Does this sound like same as others experiencing here? If so, I'll explore back through for some of the solutions.
Yours seem to be well known issue with sleep mode and not HW related.
I would like to add a fix that applied to me. I have Win 10 upgraded on Win 7. I had previously gone through my browser cookies and blocked everything I could. I noticed that s.yimg kept popping up during some freezes.
I went into cookies and re enabled it, and freezing is pretty much history. So it is possible a arrogant cookie is causing some of the problems. I hope this is of some help.
I use Mozilla Sea Monkey.
sorry for the bump, but did you solve your problem? did the system "come back" from the hanging after 5 min or so?
I think mine stopped freezing after I closed dropbox. I checked the event viewer and although I didn't see anything exactly on the time of the freezing, I saw a lot of repeating errors (in the ERROR section: "The DbxSvc Failed to connect to the
driver: (-2147024894) The system cannot find the file specified.) near that time (but after the freezing not before, yet I decided to check if it was dropbox [DbxSvc seems to be a dropbox service] as I don't know what is the process of the event logging of the computer).
Maybe there is a compatibility issue of dropbox with windows 10 on some systems. I don't know who to blame though, dropbox, microsoft, or other. I just close dropbox when it's up with the system, didn't try anything else yet, and don't know how to really fix 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...
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...
