  1. Windows 10 freezing randomly (Linux works fine)


    Hey,

    I have built a new PC a couple of weeks ago and I'm experiencing following problem when using Windows 10 (and only on Windows - I have a parallel Linux installation which works perfectly).



    Every once in a while, seemingly at random (can happen 3 times in an hour or once in multiple hours) my computer freezes. I noticed it when playing some games (like Kingdom Comes Deliverance), but also when browsing web on Chrome (even with one, empty card open).



    If it happens while I see my mouse cursor, I can move it around for a couple of seconds, however the moment I click on anything, or press any button on my keyboard, it goes completely unresponsive.



    I have following specs:

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (not OC)

    Motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS (WI-FI)

    BIOS: 1004 (newest)

    RAM: Corsair CMK16GX4M2D3600C18 DDR4-2133 / PC4-17000 DDR4 SDRAM UDIMM (2x8GB running at 3600mhz)

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (with newest game ready driver)

    System drive: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 250GB

    System: Windows 10 Pro 20H2 build 19042.572



    I just finished an OCCT test with no errors detected. Earlier I also did a RAM test with Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool - also no problems found.



    Can anyone suggest how I can diagnose and fix the problem?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Windows 10 freezes randomly


    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.
    Will look at the list you provided, thanks. Hard to do when computer freezes on the Windows loading screen though. *Biggrin
    I had tried that as well... no result.

    Windows 10 Freezing randomly [SOLVED]

    Windows 10 is a POS. Random freezes, broken Windows store and Windows apps are common. No clear solutions, just generic troubleshooting steps, or suggestions to reinstall. WTF? Not a hardware problem. Linux works just fine on the very same hardware.
    Nobody knows what's broken in Windows or how to fix it. It's a total trainwreck.
