  1. PC Randomly locks up and freezes


    Hey guys, first off I hope you all had a great Xmas and New Year...

    So since the update for windows that's recently dropped, I keep having random crashes, well more of a freeze, I can still see everything on the screen but nothing will respond I have to power my system down, I wouldn't mind if it BSOD because that can be debugged, I was just wondering can any of you guys work your magic and put me out of my misery haha.


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  3. Windows randomly freezes and locks up

    1. No, the issue can happen while i'm doing anything. I use skype as an example cause I use it alot.

    2 and 3. It doesn't matter what i'm doing, it still happens.

    Here's something I forgot to include on my post. It usually happens at night from around 5:00 10:00, but it can happen at anytime. And when it happens, every 10 - 40 minutes after it happens. It usually stops the next day or if I let the computer rest, but
    it keeps coming back.

    I also just used avast to check for viruses and it said my computer is fine.

    DRIVER VERIFIER

    PC Randomly locks up and freezes [​IMG]
    Warning Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.
    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.
     
  7. Ok so I did the above suggestion and it crashed my computer after around 10 minutes. I got stuck in the boot loop and the only way I could get out of it was opening cmd going into safemode and disabling verifier that way.
