    Laptop randomly freezes, no bootable device


    Hi All, my laptop has been experiencing random freezes recently, they can occur at anytime, from idling to the middle of gaming

    I first lose the sound, then most of my programs will stop responding (windows is still running and I can still move my mouse though) until everything finally freezes and it gives me a no bootable device screen.

    There is no BSOD screen and I've done sfc scannow, chkdisk, mdsched, disk cleanup and all show no problem, i cannot find any info from the reliability history or event monitor, only that the shutdown was unexpected.

    Can anyone give me some advice to troubleshoot the issue?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Windows 10 freezes randomly


    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.
    Will look at the list you provided, thanks. Hard to do when computer freezes on the Windows loading screen though. *Biggrin
    I had tried that as well... no result.

    LAPTOP FREEZES RANDOMLY

    Hello Community,

    As my title says, my laptop freezes randomly.

    I have tried so many ways, but didn't go well.

    The laptop freezes randomly, I can't do anything about it except force it to shut down by long pressing the power button.

    Can't put it to sleep, can't use the crtl+alt+del, nothing.

    Could it be a hardware problem?

    Very frustrated with it freezing up on me randomly, and I believe it hurts the computer too with force shut down,

    please help!

    Thank you!
