Gaming :: Program Stops Responding - Have To Restart PC

Sep 1, 2015

I encountered a problem multiple times now on Win10. The issue is that sometimes a game will stop responding, the real problem is that by then i can not alt+tab. The window keeps overlapping everything else, so i have to restart my PC everytime it happens.

Graphic Cards :: Driver Randomly Stops Responding

Oct 19, 2015

As of recently my graphics card driver has stopped responding at times and eventually recovers with windows coming with the usual pop up something along the lines of: "Your Graphics Card Driver Stopped Unexpectedly and has now recovered"

I have the latest Graphics Card Driver for my Graphics Chip on my AMD A6-5200 APU (AMD Radeon 8400)

This has happened twice so far and nothing like it has ever happened before. My thoughts lead me to believe that it could possibly be a bug in the driver or a corrupt installation or otherwise to do with the current driver version I have. However it has happened once while I was burning a linux distrobution to a disk and once while I was playing a game.

Had another account on the windows 8 forums for a while, thought I could log in to the windows 10 forums with the same account but apparently not, so I created another one with the same name

When Open Windows Media Player Eventually It Stops Responding

Nov 13, 2015

I have Windows 10, until a couple of days ago, no complaints, but now mysteriously not one single media player will play. I have Windows Media player, Groove, ITunes, Real Player, Quicktimes. I open, choose a song, click play, nothing. Ever. Eventually it stops responding. I can close the player, but nothing will play. The same issue in my browsers. NO players at all.

No More Options Selection When A Program Is Not Responding?

Aug 17, 2015

Windows 10 no "More Options" selection when a program is not responding, can I re-enable it? I game a lot and with some games that require lots of resources, sometimes while loading it will not respond, but on windows 7 i had the possibility to click something on the lines of "More Options" and i could see what the problem was.

Such as Apphang or Appcrash or other things like that. Is there anyway to re-enable this on windows 10, I upgraded strait from windows 7 to 10 without wiping HDD.

BSOD :: Display Driver Stopped Responding And Blue Screen When Not Gaming

Sep 14, 2015

I've been having this issue for almost a month now and nothing I have done has managed to fix the issue. Randomly I will get this error message:

After a few of these error messages it will eventually BSOD or freeze as seen here:

I will get both of these by doing pretty much any task on the computer, whether it be watching a video, browsing a site or even just sat at the desktop. However extremely interesting is the fact that this error will not appear in any form whilst playing games on the computer. It will not error or BSOD or anything. But doing any other task will do so, even if i have 1 program running on my entire PC.

Things I have tried so far:
Updating drivers
Uninstalling/reinstalling drivers
Installing beta drivers
Using 'Display Driver Uninstaller' to clear drivers
Cleaned out the PC of all dust present
Took out and reseated graphics card from motherboard
Put my 2 RAM sticks into different slots on the motherboard
Unplugging my 2nd monitor so I am only using one
Adding a TDR delay to my registry
Full virus scan
Updating my BIOS software

The only things I have not tried is swapping out hardware components as I am unsure if it is a hardware issue or a software issue as of yet.

I've noticed that the BSOD and errors become more common the longer the PC is left on. For example last night it was blue screening every 5 minutes of being active.

The error does not seem to continue whilst in safe mode as last night i spent a long time in 'Safe Mode Networking' in order to look up possible fixes. I am not sure if it does not continue because of drivers not being in use or because the quality is much lower than normal.

No Restart After Upgrading - PC Stops During The Process

Aug 13, 2015

I'm having some hard times with my pc after installing windows 10...I used to have windows 8.1 and everything was fine. Since I downloaded 10:

-it's no more possible for me to restart my pc: it stops during the process.
-programs behave weirdly: adobe is going mad, it's no more possible to close skype when I don't need it, and other minor issues.

Now, I tried to go back to Windows8.1, I tried to reset the pc, BUT OF COURSE I CAN'T BECAUSE THE RESTART OPTION DOESN'T WORK!!! I want my old OS back...

Power Button Stops Working Until Restart

Aug 2, 2015

I upgraded to Windows 10 from 7. Since the update I've run into an issue where, after I've been using my computer for a while and have done a few sleep/wake cycles, I won't be able to put my computer to sleep with the physical power button. It wakes up just fine with the power button. Restarting my computer temporarily resolves the issue.

Gaming :: Start Menu Icons / Tiles Missing After Gaming?

Oct 10, 2015

I have reported it (and others) on the Nvidia forums. Doesn't seem to happen for light gaming for 5 minutes or so (and of course won't happen after playing solitaire) but after heavy gaming (Battlefield Hardline, the free Star Wars beta) for 30 minutes or so, after exiting most of the start menu is often blank. Takes a reboot to get it back.

I do not believe it's corruption issues on my OS or hardware issues. Things I've done:

1) SFC/scannow no issues

2) Ran this "Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "appxmetadataappxbundlemanifest.xml")} to reregister icons.

3) Did a rebuild of the icon cache

4) Did extensive memory tests - all passed.

5) Turned off "game mode" in Antivirus

Gaming :: Any Way To Uninstall Xbox App And Live Gaming?

Oct 12, 2015

Is there any way to Uninstall Xbox app & Live Gaming from Win10? When I try to install/run game 'Halo2' on Win10 its refuses saying there is already a Live Gaming account running (Halo2 uses Live Gaming itself). I suspect the Xbox app (which also uses Live Gaming) is to blame for this. As I don't use or need the Xbox app can it be removed?

Gaming :: Causing Lag With Online Gaming?

Jan 19, 2016

I tried Windows 10 and found that Guild Wars 2 had such bad lag that it was unplayable. I had a ping of 1360 as one point when it had been in the 60-80 range previously. Internet web pages took painfully long to load. I have an excellent ISP and have never had complaints about internet access before. In searching forums I read that Window 10 has issues with data packet loss, excessive lag, etc. I went back to Windows 7 and this fixed the lag issue with Guild Wars 2 and Web Pages load instantly again, so I know Windows 10 was causing the problem. Windows 10 is safe for online gaming yet?

I upgraded to Windows 10 everything seems to run fine but system will not restart from the restart selection on the start menu. Windows update will not reboot automatically either. System looks like it is going to reboot, everything shuts down but as system trys to restart everything freezes. Only way around it is to do a hard shutdown by holding the power button. Updated graphics card,hard drive and bios but still no luck.

Stuck - Install Requires Restart But Doesn't Progress After Restart

Jan 15, 2016

I am upgrading a computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I completed the download, and got a message that the computer needed to restart to continue the installation. However, when I restart and the computer comes back up, the same message appears and the installation does not progress. When I go to check Windows updates in the control panel, it says it can't check for updates because another installation is in progress. I have restarted the machine multiple times with no progress - can't go forward, can't go back.

Getting A WEB Page Not Responding

Aug 26, 2015

I thought I would check with W10 forum on a issue that started yesterday Monday. I have had much success in resolving various glitches since installing W10 from W8.1 on this site. Suddenly, irrespective of which web site ie: msn, local news feed page, yahoo etc, that I go to I am getting on the bottom left an indication that "web is not responding" and on the right hand bottom "Recover page". I am not certain if this a W10 glitch or something else that causing my inability to access various web pages. I have another lap top that I upgraded to W10 from W7 that is functioning properly.

Doesn't apply to:

Lock Screen Not Responding

Feb 10, 2016

I've been running Windows 10 myself for a few days. My girlfriend for a few weeks/months. We noticed a small something that is not much but is getting on the nerve after a while.

We lock our computer or put them to sleep and when trying to get from the lock screen to the login screen, nothing is happening. We wait a few moment and everything is fine. Here is a few cases...

I'm at the lock screen. Click the mouse or hit a key. Nothing. Try a few times and I get to the login screen.

Another case : From the lock screen, hit a key on the keyboard multiple time and nothing. Click the mouse once and it's ok.

Everything work fine after that and it's no big deal but whe having to do this game a few times each days it's start to get on the nerve. Sometimes it's fine and we get to the login screen right away.

In my case it's a brand new install and in the case of my girlfriend it's an upgrade from 8.1.

Cortana Is Not Audibly Responding

Mar 31, 2015

I cannot get any audio from Cortana. If I remember correctly, "Hey Cortana" would initiate a chime, and asking about weather would prompt her to audibly tell me the weather (albeit only in San Fransico). It worked for me in build 9926, but it has not worked in 10041 nor in 10049.
