    Random windows 10 freezes when browsing or gaming


    Hey guys

    This thing hapenned just after I installed my nvidia driver 381 and It looks like this:

    When browsing (gaming) the screen for no obvious reason freezes (usually after a click, for example clicking ''world'' button in facebook, clicking links etc) abd There is no other way than hard turn off - by holding by the on/off button. Its making the computer almost unusable, and very anyoing. Anyone having same solutions?

    Hi - I have a brand new machine that is having the same issue. HP tech support has been of no use, they checked the drivers, bios, and even had me reinstall Windows 10. All together I've spent about 10 hours working on this with them, and numerous calls/fights with them to keep my ticket open. Nothing has fixed the problem and I've given up on HP support all together.

    My research to fix this on my own has shown there are some NVIDIA drivers that do not play well with Windows 10. It is a fairly common issue with the system freezing up randomly, with no regards to how much processing is going on in the driver, on the system, or whether or not the system is connected to other devices or the internet.

    It's a driver issue. Who's to blame? Probably NVidia, but I also blame Microsoft.
    Some folk have had success with an OS reinstall (didn't work for me), changing the parameters for video display (didn't work here), a Bios update (nope again), and in most extream situations: a new video card (AMD). I'll be trying the last option when I have a break in my schedule.

    Good luck!
