    PC keeps freezing at startup and random times


    Hello,

    So I'm having this problem since about a month I could say but it has gotten worse and now it's absolutely rendered my pc unusable.


    Most of the time after I login and many times when the loading icon is there when windows is starting the pc just comes to a halt, it just freezes with the Hdd light sometimes on and sometimes off nothing can't be done and the power button has to be pressed for long enough for the pc to shut down, then it tries to start back like nothing happened until it does the same thing again. Initially when this started happening this was very rare, happened a few times at startup, it gradually increased and is now unusable, to the point where it hangs literally every time.


    I've tried imo everything I could find as a solution from as little as a disk check to now resetting my pc where it hangs after it starts to install windows as you can guess I'm pretty much fed up at this point, in 2 days I have a project deadline and I can't edit or render anything, before this happened I did install a windows update which added the dark mode to file explorer but it worked fine after it installed for quite some time before this started happening and I suspect if that was the problem it should have been fixed when I resetted the pc so I'm really out of clue on what to do.


    Help or opinions would be greatly appreciated.


    Processor : i5 4590 3.3ghz

  2. PC Keeps Freezing At Completely Random Times

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I can imagine the inconvenience you have experienced. I will definitely help you with this.

    I suggest you to disable the third party security software (if any installed) temporarily and check if it is cause to issue.

    Disable Antivirus:

    Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you
    should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Kindly follow the below steps and check if you are able to fix the issue.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to run the System maintenance
    troubleshooter and check if it fixes the issue:

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control Panel

    • Type Troubleshooting in the search bar on the
      Control Panel.

    • Click on View all
      on the left navigation pane.

    • Click on System maintenance.

    • Click on Advanced on the
      System maintenance
      dialog box and click on Run as administrator (Enter the credentials if required).

    • Click on Next and follow onscreen instruction complete the
      System maintenance troubleshooter.

    If issue persist, Kindly follow the below given steps and check if it helps:

    Run these commands:


    • Press Windows key and type Powershell
      in search, right click on it and Open as administrator .

    • Type the following command in Powershell and hit enter:

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Also, please refer to the link by Andre Da Costa on Windows 10 freeze which gives suggestions on how to troubleshoot on this scenario.

    Random freezes or shut downs

    Completely random freezing/shutdowns on a system with no recent hardware changes, and hard drive, memory, and PSU fine, usually means a software issue (file corruption or malicious software). I suggest following DavidV's recommendations.

    My brand new PC keeps crashing


    Hi, Sorry to hear of your problem.
    Basics: Do you experience these freezes only after installing additional software? Try a clean boot and check for freezes then.

    There are 54 pages in this thread on random freezes..
