  1. New Dell PC randomly freezing/hanging


    So, My new Dell XPS PC has begun to randomly hang or freeze(3-4secs) and I assume it will only get worse. The pointer will lock in place for like 3 or 4 seconds. It's 4 days old and I think a contributing factor may be that I uninstalled a bunch of stuff that came pre-loaded with the PC or it could just be a bad install. I did a windows image back up, but that was after I had removed the files and set it up to my liking. I did change a setting in nvidia's control panel, that enabled full output dynamic range, too. Any suggestion would be very welcome. Thanks.

    :)

  2. pc 'hangs' or freezes randomly

    While in use suddenly nothing responds to mouse or keyboard for long minutes, then starts up again ok for a few minutes. Have tried all usual restart/etc. online suggestions without luck.

    Have found in Task Manager - Processes - there are listed 4 'Suspended" items, Could they be the culprits causing the 'hang or freeze'.

    Can't determine exactly what the suspended are so am hesitant to 'End Task' them.

  3. 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.

    pc 'hangs' or freezes randomly

    Tried everything listed online. Gave up and had HP perform complete restore of windows, 1709.

    Of course, now I'm presented with many problems of missing items. Cannot even get back the Microsoft weather forecast as well as the apps store. PC may soon go flying out the window!
