  1. Screen randomly shutdown, requiring hard reboot.


    Hi, I have a Gateway P78 FX edition laptop, since Spring 2018 update (1803), my screen randomly shutdown (and keyboard stop responding), requiring a hard reboot, mainly when I play videos online (YouTube, Netflix, Twitch,...) but it can also happen at any other moment too, ex: also happen when I start the Blizzard App or when I just scroll web pages.


    Before anyone start shouting "update your drivers". I want to say, yes all drivers are up to date, they are still old since the manufacture company are no longer support/updating them...


    My laptop is about 8 years old, so it's may not be surprising that I start having problems.

    :)

  2. Screen freezes randomly, requiring hard reboot

    I've been working on this problem for months now. I have Windows 10 on a HP Envy desktop and using an HP display. It worked fine without problems for about 6 months. Then the
    screen started freezing-- the pointer freezes, the PC becomes unresponsive.
    When I power off by hitting the power button and restart, it works fine for a few minutes to hours to days without a problem. Then the problem will happen again randomly. I figured it probably happened after a Windows update, which are automatic.

    Then about 5 weeks ago it got a new problem. The screen would suddenly start flashing on and off, and the PC was again unresponsive. After rebooting, it would work again for a few min-to-hours-to-days as with the previous problem. Finally it went to a blue
    screen with endless circles and would not ever get past that point. SO, at this point
    I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled Windows 10.

    NOW I'm back to the original problem: the pointer freezes and the screen freezes, requiring a reboot from the power button. The only software I have installed since reinstalling Windows:

    Mcaffee Live Safe

    Microsoft Office

    Chrome

    HP Printer software

    Adobe acrobat

    The problem has been happening from the beginning though (right after I reinstalled windows). So, I figure that the screen freeze is a Windows problem. I've updated all drivers. I've searched all over this site, but no suggestions as to what to do. Can anyone
    help?
