    Laptop "Locking" during heavy load, gaming


    Win 10 version 1909 OS build 18636.1316
    Under heavy load, primarily when playing games, my laptop will enter a "sleep" state. It will momentarily black screen with a message that says "Locking", then the screen will shut off, and finally, after a few minutes, the keyboard and fans. When I wake it back up, it comes back with all apps still running. I have run all of the troubleshooters and scans that I can think of, have been on support with Dell for hours, and still have not found a solution. Running Event Viewer, I can see that every time there is a Kernel-Power event ID 42 preceded by a Kernel-Power event ID 187 initiated by WUDFHost.exe. What I can't figure out is why. Originally I thought the system must be overheating, but turning off Turboboost using Throttlestop has not solved the issue. In that setting, I rarely get temps over 80C, yet I still have the issue. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  3. Pre-loaded games won't uninstall

    I'm not really into some of the games that were pre-loaded into my PC but when I try to bring up the games from the Start menu and click on 'uninstall' it takes me to the control panel, and I don't see the games listed there for me to uninstall. Suggestions, please? Thanks! ~P

  4. Laptop "Locking" during heavy load, gaming

    Game crashes on heavy gfx load, Windows 10 build 16275.1000 V1703..

    Game crashes on heavy gfx load, Windows 10 build 16275.1000 V1703...

    I can't play my games properly, since I can barely play my games on the medium graphic settings, with minimal crashes, anything higher then results in PC restarts, with no warnings..
    I'm not sure what causes the problem, but it's strange it only happens on my greatest games, since it's seems to be related to heavy load on gfx, I can't do any debug, since when the crash occurs pc restart, and no Windows logs available..

    It seems to be only related to Windows 10, I've done some research on the issue, only Windows 10 users report the problem..

    Please look into the issue, and maybe fix the heavy gfx load error..

    All my gfx drivers are up to date, so that shouldn't be the issue..
