  1. Windows freezes with only the mouse being able to interact with limited functionality.


    Windows 10 Pro ver. 2004 build 19041.508 freezes almost once a week with no obvious cause. The only major change to my PC recently was a change in boot drive from a SATA SSD to NMVe m.2 drive.



    When the freeze happens the keyboard no longer works and the mouse is able to interact with less and less response from open programs, the taskbar, task manager etc. Sometimes I am able to open task manager in time and it displays 100% GPU usage even at idle. My windows background sometimes turns black as well or if I'm running Wallpaper Engine that crashes too.



    I have ran Malwarebytes several times scanning the whole system with no detections. Restarting the PC is the only short-term solution I can find.



    PC Specs:

    CPU - Ryzen 7 1800X @ 3.9GHz

    Motherboard - ROG Strix X370 - F gaming BIOS ver. 5603

    GPU - GTX 1070 Founder's Edition

    RAM - 32GB DDR4 3200MHz running at 3000MHz

    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    This issue might have occurred again due to drivers update with the latest update of Windows 10.

    Method 1: I suggest you to run the
    hardware and devices
    troubleshooter by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type
      troubleshooter and select the top most search result.

    • Click on View all from left side panel of the screen.

    • Select Hardware and Devices,
      click on Advanced option and check
      Apply repairs automatically option.

      Device Manager.

    Download the drivers from the computer manufacture's website for Windows 10, if not available.

    Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    a. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

    b. Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’.

    c. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation.

  4. Windows freezes with only the mouse being able to interact with limited functionality.

    Mouse functions limited

    Today 4/17/16 I received a windows 1511 update. The functions of my mouse have since been limited. I can no longer make use of side to side or up and down scrolling motions on my mouse with results. I attempted to update from ASUS. The approval box shows
    without any further results following approval. Am I missing a setting adjustment or could there be more updates needed.
