    Windows 10 crashing/freezing after update attempt.


    Hi, I have a dell inspiron laptop running windows 10. It's around 5 yrs old and has been running perfectly. About two weeks ago it tried to downloading a windows update. Something must've gone wrong because I got a message saying something along the lines of could not install back, restoring old settings.

    Ever since the my laptop has become very unresponsive and progressively worse and worse. Now it takes ages to start and often fails to boot. When it does boot it locks up and freezes being completely unresponsive. I can start in safe mode and runs fine in safe mode.

    Initially I tried a system restore but this only seemed to make the problem worse. I tried updating the drivers, running cmd sfc/ scannow, uninstalling recent programs but nothing seems to help. I even now have done a system reset from windows recovery but again it didn't work.

    Is there anything I can do or try to resolve this or is my laptop dead?

    Thank you in advance.

    :)

    all games crash!

    I suggest you run rthdribl > http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip
    Increase the window size step by step and watch your vga temps permanently.
    What happens?
    If it crashes, run at stock speeds as suggested before and retry.

    P.S.: When your system locks, does the display signal turn off after a time?
    Stuttering sound or no sound at all when freezing?
    What X1800XT model do you own exactly?
