  1. PC becomes unresponsive


    My computer randomly becomes unresponsive, the mouse locks up, the audio drops out, and the machine itself makes a buzzing/grinding noise not from the speakers. Without any user input the machine corrects itself and goes back to normal operation.

    I have updated my drivers, reinstalled my drivers. I transitioned to a DAC and disabled onboard audio output. Even after doing all of that I am still experiencing this problem.


    Processor: IntelR CoreTM i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80Ghz

    Installed RAM: 16.0 GB

    Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z370-A II

    Graphics Card: GEFORCE RTX 2060

    C: Drive: Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

    Keyboard unresponsive after update to Windows 10 version 1073

    Hi,

    One possible reason why your keyboard is slow and unresponsive after an update may be due to driver incompatibility. As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to resolve this issue. Kindly follow the steps
    below:

    • Type Troubleshooting in Cortana's search field and press
      Enter.
    • Click on View All in the top left corner.
    • Click on Hardware and Devices from the list and follow the prompts.

    Let us know if you will need further assistance.

  4. PC becomes unresponsive

    Programs become unresponsive in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I tried both with different results.

    Step 1: Safe Mode:

    This seemed to work and I could save a file in Word without the program becoming "Unresponsive".

    Step 2: Clean Boot:

    This did not work and Word would become unresponsive when trying to save a file.

    I did notice another odd thing. It seems that sometimes (not often) Word would work the first time I used it If I close it and reopened it the unresponsive behavior returned. I tried opening Word several time but it remained unresponsive.

    This is very frustrating as I use Word daily.
