    Windows 10 randomly freezes and slow startup


    Good morning I have a Dell laptop (2017, top range) and for a few months I experienced some random freezes and a very slow start-up. I have already tried to clean install Windows 10, both with Dell utility and with stock Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. I have also tried chkdsk, sfc, etc. but they only partially solve the problem and only temporarily. Already scanned for virus with AdwCleaner, MalwareBytes, Defender and Emsisoft. The problem is that even with stock Windows 10 clean install utility Windows Update automatically installs some Dell drivers that seem like outdated instead of stock Intel ones, and I think they cause these problems. Already updated all drivers according to Dell website. The disk (HDD) stays at 20 or 30 % when used and its health is "good". Winver: 21H1 19043.985 installed via Windows Media Creation Tool. Thanks in advance for your help!

    :)

  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.
