  1. Windows 10 system lockup


    Ever since the latest major updates to version 2004 my PC has been locking up randomly, sometimes even when I have been in the middle of keying into an application. I have done all I can to ensure that there is paging space on the main disk drive. I run AVG Tuneup whenever the system locks up, and also run the deep scan on AVG Internet Security..


    My PC is a Lenovo 64 bit with 8 Gb RAM. It was bought before Windows 10 arrived, with Windows 7. I installed Windows 10 as soon as it became available. When the lockup occurs I turn off the mains supply and then turn it back on, after trying to get a response from the system with the old three finger salute!


    Can anyone help me to identify what what is causing the lockup? When it occurs I remove power and switch on again. If the system actually wnet down I would get log data on the fault, but this way I get nothing!

    All help gratefully received!

    Murray

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Windows 10 lockup

    Hello Tony,

    There are several possible reasons why Windows 10 gets lockup. It could be due to compatibility issues, software conflicts, or system file corruptions. To resolved this issue, we suggest performing the methods
    below:

    Method 1:

    We suggest that you run check disk on the hard drive to see if there are any corruptions.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    chkdsk /f

    Disclaimer: While performing check disk on the hard drive, if any bad sectors are found then check disk will try to repair that sector. Any data available on a bad sector might be lost.

    Once Check Disk completes, boot the computer and then check.

    If the issue persists then follow the below method.

    Method 2: Perform System File Checker (SFC) scan.

    Try to run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption. SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    sfc /scannow

    If the issue persists then follow the below method.

    Method 3: DISM Commands.

    Fix Windows corruption errors by using the DISM.

    Refer to this article on how to perform DISM commands.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
