mentioned in this thread. Perhaps one may pertain to your system?
Funny you should bring up the battery , for the last few months i have noticed that when i plug in the AC power cord the laptop does not always recognize it , it has always been plugged in with the battery installed by the way .
The battery seems to be fine , it never gets to a critical level because if it dips below 60 % all of a sudden the AC power cord shows next to the battery icon showing that it's charging .
Very odd , sometimes when i remove the battery and plug in the cord the laptop will not power on while at other times it will . It always powers on when the battery is installed.
When i plug in the power cord with the battery already installed you don't see a power cord logo , only when the battery gets to a certain level will you see the charge indicator .
This condition has never caused any issues with freezing in Win 7 though, only in Win 10.
Just for a quick update, I am currently on an almost perfectly clean copy of win7 with the media creation tool downloading the 64 bit version of windows 10 pro as I type. I only have one question left.
You told me to get rid of theme modifications. What about the alienware theme that comes with this installer for the OS? Should I leave that or delete it?
I can't believe it. It actually froze on me again. I got a lynksys AC1200. fresh installation. just the internet stuff with the wireless adapter, Opera, the media creation tool and iso and 7zip. That is everything. I deleted windows.old. I left the alienware theme on. I left the graphics drivers unaltered. What could I possibly have done wrong?
Sounds like you live "Murphy's Law" like i do , sucks but someone has to always have crap luck , unfortunately that would be me and you.
I am just completely out of ideas. I've fresh installed 7 time and time again, trying to install windows 10 on it. I guess the last thing I could try that I haven't is try uninstalling opera and 7 zip once i've got everything i need.
edit: that didn't work either.
