    My laptop has had this issue for a long time, but it has for some reason gotten worse now. Any time I intensively use the computer to play games like Boneworks, or Apex legends, the pc will switch to a blue screen after a while that represents the windows loading screen, and it says "Locking". Then it becomes unresponsive, the fans stay on, the keyboard lights are on, but nothing else happens. I have to hold the power button down every time this happens, and launch up the computer again. I have tried everything to fix this. I thought this was an overheating issue so I replaced the thermal

  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??

    my laptop randomly says "locking" and automatically goes to sleep or hibernate while playing games. windows 10

    Hi,

    i have a problem with my laptop. it goes to sleep and hibernate whenever I'm playing games. the screen goes blue and says "locking" randomly. i search in community and mostly said it is battery issue or BIOS issue. I already did all the solved solution but
    it didn't work. i suffered this problem since late 2019. before that time it worked very well. my laptop specs:

    HP Pavilion notebook 14-ab133tx

    OS : Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Version: 18362.1139

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50GHz

    Ram: 8GB

    Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce 940M

    Hard drive: 1TB

    last thing I did was upgrading bios from f80 to f91. it only worked for around a week but it back to the locking issue.

    please kindly help me to solve my issue. because I really frustrated when this happened whenever I'm playing games and ruin my game. I don't know how to find the solution anymore. hope this thread could give me the solution to my issue.

    Thank You!
