  1. Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Keeps Freezing/Locking up


    I've been getting this issue as of late and I don't know why. Contrary to what seems to be the popular case, I did not suffer through this when I installed the first creators update.

    I've run through certain tests involving file system checks, memory checks, and other software checks (e.g. BIOS, firmware, etc.). I've also checked hardware and given the other posts regarding this issue as of late, I sincerely doubt that it's a hardware malfunction.

    I've made double sure that the most obvious drivers are up to date. I've updated everything I can possibly think of, including my VPN client.

    Incidentally, this issue has only initiated when I had Firefox running. I assumed after the 2nd time that it was due to multimedia content--thusly relating to my video drivers & Firefox--but the third time did not occur with any multimedia being loaded. I simply started Firefox and my machine froze. Left it for an hour and it stayed that way. It's only happened three times so far.

    What's bothering me is that I've been checking the logs to see if anything could clue me in on what's causing this to happen, but just as it occurred to many who suffered through the first creator's update bug, I cannot pinpoint this darn catalyst.

    In my case, this happens randomly. There is no time-bound expectation for this.

    Whatever it is, however, it appears to only be activated when Firefox is running. Whether or not that's accurate needs to be verified.

    I have included an attachment of the files requested for aid in this situation (as per the forum suggestions).

    What can I do to further test this?

    I can only assume Microsoft will eventually get whiff of this seeing as I'm not the only one with this issue.

    It might also be worth mentioning that I cannot rollback to an earlier build due to the fact that I deleted that contingency with the disk cleanup utility. My only option now is to refresh my system or wait to get a fix for this.

    For my sake, I sincerely hope it's sooner than later.

    I'd rather avoid refreshing, but if I must, I will do so. *Shock

  2. windows 10 pro 64 bit freezes randomly

    Dear Zigzag3143,

    I have installed almost same programs on both the computers (32 bit laptop and 64 bit desktop). The programs show no conflict (freezing) with windows 7 professional (64 bit) on the same desktop but, windows 10 pro freezes randomly with the same programs.

    Interestingly, checking system before installing the upgrade to Windows 10 pro approves the system for installing the upgrade. So, there seems to be no problem with the desktop hardware for windows 10 pro.

I didn't see any indication any dumps were created in the Event log either.

    For now, I would suggest not using sleep or hibernate. Instead, setup a screen saver and have it turn off the screen after a set period of time.

    I don't know what memory test you ran but I suggest running memtest86+ as follows. You have 16GB so it will take quite awhile, 12 to 20 hours.

    ===================================================
    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    MemTest86+ is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.


    Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Keeps Freezing/Locking up [​IMG]
    Warning MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.


    Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Keeps Freezing/Locking up [​IMG]
    Note MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    Take a picture when done and post in the forum please.

    If that doesn't show any problems then test your GPU (Geforce GTX 750Ti 2GB):
    ===================================================
    Follow this tutorials to stress test your GPU:
    FurMark - GPU Stress Test - Windows 10 Forums

    If you have a AMD APU instead of a discreet GPU, try UNIGINE 3D Benchmark..

    ===================================================

    Let's see what those tests show us.

    Oh, please make sure your PC is configured for small dump files:

  5. Update:
    I have since had no incidents since my posting here. I've been putting my PC to sleep and letting it sleep on it's own. Incidentally, I do have a screensaver configured, but I also still have my power settings set to sleep after a predetermined time.

    I will run the memory tests with the recommended program today. I will aim for at least 10 passes and I will do the same tomorrow.

    I want to avoid testing my GPU as it seems the suggested program comes with risk. I just got this card.

  6. UPDATE:
    After running the test with memtest86, the result was that my RAM had no errors.

    The pictures of those results are the following:

    I am reluctant to continue on with the graphics card test as I've weary of it. I realize that for hardware to be ruled out, conclusive tests must be administered, but this hardware is relatively new. I only purchased it about 9-10 months ago. I understand that doesn't guarantee anything with respect to reliability or faulty hardware, but given the fact that my memory is in good condition (supposedly), I'm willing to bet my GPU is just as fine. Also, considering the other reports being shown not only here, but on other board sites and similar, I can't say this is relating to hardware at all. At least, not as the root cause.

    Since I can't give access to dump files that don't exist, what else is there for me to do?

    Can I not check logs to determine anything? There must be something that can give me at least a clue. Something that suspects the software, not the hardware. This hasn't been happening until I installed the FCU. There must be some software defect causing this.

    Just thought I'd mention you did not run memtest86+ as asked. You ran memtest86. Different program and not the one we recommend testing with. It also needs to be run for at least 8 full passes as there have been many cases where failures occurred in the later passes.

    Let it slide for now. @zbook will ask if he thinks it's needed later. Good luck.

    The reason I opted for memtest86 was because I found a source that mentioned possible incompatibility with newer builds. Can't remember now which one it was mentioning as I was under the impression they were the same. One just being slightly outdated and the other wasn't.

    I was under the impression that the 8 passes would be run through the "test". It wasn't until I finished it the first time that I realized it only ran 4 passes and that I would effectively have to run 2 tests. Assuming memtest86+ follows in the same operations as the original program does, this would then require that I run two tests in total. Two tests. Not one. That will take time.

    To alleviate any doubt, I will run the test with memtest86+ tonight. I will undoubtedly receive the same result. I'll upload the results for that after I've done the other things zbook as asked.

    Right now, I'm almost positive this is a software issue. I need to determine why it happened and why it isn't happening anymore.

    To clear any doubt:

    Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Keeps Freezing/Locking up [​IMG]


    I can't really see this being a hardware issue, but if I could get more proof, then I'd be happy to get replacement hardware.

    @zbook

    I haven't seen any changes from the clean boot. AVG would not let me do a thorough clean boot. It appears there's almost no way to disable it. Disabling all other non-Microsoft services didn't really make much of a difference with booting up and shutting down AFAIC. It would probably show significant difference with AVG out of the way, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to completely disable it without uninstalling. I ran the recommended troubleshooters and came across no issues.

    I've also rerun the above mentioned sfc and dism checks and all have reported no issues.

    I have attached another DM log zip file.
    BRYAN-AMD-Thu_12_14_2017_225756_13.zip

    Incidentally, my system has still been crashing. I've checked Event Viewer and all it tells me is that it rebooted unexpectedly. There have been other warnings and errors, but none that I believe would cause what I've been experiencing.

    I think it should be noted that I attempted to install the KB4054517 update yesterday and I experienced one of the weirdest update processes ever. It might not be listed in the files under DM log, but I was able to identify a bug check error in Event Viewer after the failed installation attempt.

    I will post a new thread detailing that as it isn't entirely related to this.

    How do I proceed?

  13. Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Keeps Freezing/Locking up

    @zbook

    I don't know why flashing the BIOS fixed my freezing issue but at the very least I can now (reasonably) confirm that it was that.

    Incidentally, I had already known about the BIOS being out-of-date but chose not to update seeing as how the changelog for the recent update didn't really specify anything that I thought would interfere with normal operations. I also had to take into account that this issue only just occurred after getting the FCU (1709). Reports said that the issue I was suffering from had made head-way since the first CU—which to me meant that it should have happened then. For the moment, I can only assume that it did the trick as I've since had no freezing glitches.

    I've uninstalled AVG and have turned on Defender. I've also installed Malawarebytes as it's reasonably "light weight" according to some. I've also turned off fast startup.

    I'd like to thank you ZTrucker for your assistance.

    Have a good New Year!
