  1. After Installing Windows 10, Freezes At Random Times


    I installed Windows 10 fine on a computer that had Windows 7, clean install on a brand new hard drive. After the clean install, I made sure drivers were up to date and what not. Everything works great, except the computer freezes at some point while on any browser. At first I thought it was a browser problem with chrome, but then it happened on Microsoft Edge browser. I was hoping the community here maybe had an idea on what to do.

    :)

    Thanks! Did you install the ASRock drivers for all the components? In many cases I have found that the drivers that W10 chooses are often fine. This is particularly so for the Intel Management Driver. You could try rolling back the driver and see if it makes a difference.

  7. Yes, I believe I installed all the drivers. How can I check to make sure I got everything?

    Device Manager is the way (right click on your start icon). You can check the date and version of all the drivers for the various components. Double click each item to open the properties page and look in the driver tab.

  9. Going through the Device Manager the first time, I just updated the ones that had little cautions by them which was only 1. However, now I am going through every single one and clicking update just in case.

    So far it has updated:
    Intel B85M LPC Controller
    Processor DRam Controller
    PCI Express Port #1
    PCI Express Root Port #4

    The ASRock drivers provided for your motherboard are listed here:

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/B85M/...nload&os=Win10

    Did you install any of these?

    It is not necessary to check everything in device manager but I would concentrate on the graphics and audio drivers.

  11. I think only the Intel Management Engine driver because that was one of the ones that had a caution sign on it right after I installed Windows 10.

    Try the ASRock provided VGA driver and see if that makes any difference

    Hi Friends Word wide.

    Some comments on my problem CPU running suddenly 100% In 3 LAPTOPS!?

    I have 3 laptops, all running Win 10. No big problems this far.
    Suddenly it happened! All 3 laptops stopped normal working, but went to a state where CPU was running in the background 100%! What could I do - nothing! (RAM usage was 'normal some 50%).

    * I have installed * Antivir Pro, 'Windows protect of cource', SkyHunter and 'others'.
    * Of course I did run all those 'malware/virus checks' - hopeless!
    * Then I thought that I had not tried Kaspersky (I was once a client, but left it 'for some reason I don't remember'
    * Ok - downloaded Kaspersky's free KVRT and run it-----
    -on my main laptop it took 1 day + 3 hours to do the test, it found 29 threads, BUT
    - during the last seconds my main laptop booted suddenly by it self!!!??
    - I was of coerce shocked - 'almost 2 days spent for 'nothing'?!

    - I relaxed, kept the laptop quiet for half an hours, and
    - new boot! Almost ' nothing happened' first - after a wait -come
    On screen (CMD 'Dos') display: - cleanup started-----?????
    What is this???

    BUT!!! After some 20 minutes there was a message:
    Just boot, your PC is ok, 'go on, use it'!

    Absolutely fantastic remedy! All 'huge problems gone'!

    ? Why did those 'famous'¨'Antivir' SW find, 'nothing/anyting', if free Kaspersky
    found 29 and cured them all!!!? And put the pc in working!"
    Please do not even ask if I'm a Kaspersky customer again!

    Very best regards

    Erkki

    Helsinki Finland

    p.s. I think I' not a newcomer in PC's etc. 'just some 50 + years experience!
    and daily almost 7/24 practice, but this was really something I faced the first time =
    'a 'virus etc.' hitting 3 separate laptops the same time! (All 3 are on my internal 4G 'homegroup'.

    My final message being, If I used 3 famous 'virus-/malware' SW to solve my really severe problem, and they ALL gave negative results:
    - is there some better protection available?

  15. Can you please make your own post and not post on my thread.........

    I went to install the VGA driver but it said, you are about to install drivers that were older than the ones already installed. Should I do this?
