    sytem hangs up more

    I am using 19577. Lately my system hangs for no obvious reason. Normally if I use windows key + F8 it clears. Now that doesn't appear to work. Any ideas please. Thanks

    honestly this is very hard to troubleshoot , for instance did you service the fans lately ? can you see any blown capacitors on the bored ? did you scan for antiviruses using various packages ? did you try dism and sfc ? are you using old drivers ? has the pc received any driver updates / build updates lately ?

    P.S windows key + f8 does nothing but giving you the false impression its doing something about it . if it is some hot key in a utility you use , you may question that utility itself to be the cause .

    Test for system -vs- hardware. Create a Linux distro boot USB (prefer Mint, also Puppy) and start your computer with that.

    Run and test some of the activities you were doing e.g. web browsing (uses FFox), office apps (uses LibreOffice), bit of emailing, etc. If it still hangs, then it's more than likely a hardware issue. Otherwise .....
