Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly
My advice is to use the above freeware packages to be certain. They often find fully tested certified drivers that are not yet posted on the official websites. This often happens to Intel and RealTek hardware for example.
I did now. It said errors have been corrected, IŽll let you know whether it helped.
Hi! I've been following this thread the last couple of days since I've been experiencing the same problem as you guys. Just wanted to share with you what solved it for me. After lots of testing (and trying EVERYTHING) I figured out that it was my Intel display drivers (latest version) that wasn't compatible with f.lux (software that filters blue screen light) that were causing the freezes. When I disabed f.lux the problem disappeared. This issue seems to be quite common when I googled it.
With Windows 10 I guess there might be a 1000 different causes for crashes like this, but this solved it for me.
Possible solution for bugged driver
I have the same problem with a brand new Acer Aspire V laptop with a SDD.
I found this and so far it worked for me. Will test it for a week.
Task Manager might show 100% disk utilization on Windows 10 devices with Message Signaled Interrupt (MSI) mode enabled.
Task Manager shows the disk to be at 100% utilization despite a light or no workload, and the system may experience lag or become unresponsive. In addition, the system event log contains numerous events with Event ID 129, which represent resets of the disk controller.
While device resets can be caused by a varying number of factors, we are aware of issues with some Advanced Host Controller Interface PCI-Express(AHCI PCIe) models that causes these symptoms in Windows 10 when running with the inbox StorAHCI.sys driver. Due to a firmware bug, the Solid-state drive (SSD) does not properly complete input/output when Message Signaled Interrupt (MSI) mode is enabled. As a result, the Windows storage stack attempts to reset the device after waiting on unresponsive reads or writes for a period of time.

Hope it helps!
Just had another freeze. Was running fine for the past day and a half or so, since I reinstalled the AMD drivers.
Just got done a 3 hour gaming session, installing some software add-ons for the game,and it locked up while viewing the one website. The only error was about 11 minutes prior to the system lock up. TCP/IP event 4230
Hello guys, I'm having the same problem and annoys me as hell, but mine is different. It always happens in three occasions
1-When I change the display from the monitor to the TV to watch movies and stuff by unplugging the display port and plugging the HDMI that is connected to the TV. It happens right away. Also, when I go back to the monitor from the TV again, it happens right away which forces me to force-restart the computer.
2- While installing Samsung Magician SSD software since I have a Samsung EVO SDD. it freezes before the installation completes.
3-While troubleshooting the computer for problems from the control panel, happens while checking.
The whole screen freezes and nothing can make it work again and the mouse cursor will never move.
When I had windows 8.1, I had none of these weird problems. Did a clean install 3 times, but no chance. Same thing happens always. Anyone have the same situation as mine, or does anyone have a solution?
I have uninstalled Acronis True Image HD 2014 and my system seems to go fine now.
Well, unfortunatly, it did not solved the problem...
Removed wifi card and driver, disabled ethernet driver, purchased new usb wifi and ethernet to usb adapter. The freezing continues. Disconnect from the internet and the PC runs perfectly - but my business is internet related. Connecting Wifi will freeze the PC within minutes, where running a LONG ethernet cable from my cable modem may give me a couple of hours occasionally.
I have updated all drivers I can.
So not looking forward to clean install - will take days to set up.
Just giving a try with uninstalling TeamViewer version 9.... so far, good........... oh well, just happened again... what a shame...
same problem with random freezing. This not the blue screen version.
Started about a week after upgrading from w8.
Usually once a day, but has been up to 4 in a day. Tried waiting it out, and still frozen 6 hours later.
Kaspersky was installed at the beginning, and Acronis after this all started.
Hard restart is the only solution.
This is an Acer w I7-2670QM and 8 gb and a 1Tb drive

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...
