    Asus computer consistently freezes; pausing everything except off butt


    My computer has been doing this since Thursday. I had to post this with my phone because even when I tried to post on my computer it froze. It's been hard to manage as it comes unexpectedly and the only method to reset it is to turn off my computer. This is the model I think, I got it refurbished but this never happened the months I've had it. ( https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-15...B&gclsrc=aw.ds)

    No other button except the off button works when this happens. Here's a video for what happens https://youtu.be/F91JPvwgdcc

    What should I do? Thank you

    :)

    Asus touchpad is reversed

    Hi Jeff,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to try the following steps before you un-install the drivers from device manager. Now, un-install the drivers from Device Manager, install the latest drivers from the ASUS website.

    • Press Windows + Pause Break to open System Properties
    • Click Advance system settings.
    • Select Hardware Tab, Select "Device installation settings"
    • Select No, let me chose what to do.
    • Select Never install Driver software from Windows Update
    • Click Apply and OK.

    Now, go to device manager un-install the driver and install the latest one from ASUS website.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
