Keeps Randomly Hanging

Feb 23, 2016

Bought a new HP laptop with 8Mb RAM and 2Tb HDD. Installed Office 2016 and using Panda Gold firewall and AV. Windows frequently freezes when using various programmes and all I can do is remove the battery and disconnect mains power. Now I run without the battery installed as I need to shut it down and reboot frequently. What is causing this problem and how to fix it? Never had this problem with Win 7.

Gaming :: Hanging While Playing Games?

Sep 10, 2015

Whenever i try to launch a game on windows 10 i can play normally for 3-20 minutes before Windows hangs (perm Freeze) and i have to restart.

I am having this problem on all the games i have tried (roblox, besiege, terraria, minecraft, team fortress 2) except pokemon tcgo, even browser games will crash. I have reinstalled Windows several times and the problem persists even after updating drivers. My pc was originally working fine and then it started doing this afer i installed .net fremework 3.5 for a game i installed (other games where working fine).

I did once even encounter a BSOD (KMODE_exception_not_handled) sometimes it even crashes at random (i am on a clean install) after inspecting pc i found my psu fan was not working.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews Hanging

Feb 10, 2016

I included a screenshot below of the thing I'm referring to, because I've never been told what the actual name of it is.

Basically if Windows has been running a long time, the thumbnail previews for windows (from the taskbar) start to hang indefinitely until I click on them, or in an unfocused window. As you can imagine, this gets really annoying when I just move my cursor over an item in the taskbar, and one of these thumbnails pops up indefinitely, until I manage to make it go away manually.

Mouse Cursor Hanging Up In Corners

Aug 17, 2015

I am new to using Windows 10 - 'just upgraded from Windows 7 about 3 days ago. So far I'm enjoying it except for the trouble I'm having with my mouse cursor. Any time I transfer to another monitor (I run a 3 monitor setup), my mouse cursor gets stuck if I try to move to the next screen via the corners of my screens.

I've read everything I could on every forum I could regarding registry edits and disabling various features and nothing seems to work. As far as registry editing goes, everything I read is for Windows 8.1 and my machine doesn't even HAVE the registry keys mentioned in those work around. It's very frustrating and counter intuitive to keeping my Windows experience productive and ultimately a bit of a deal breaker.

Drivers/Hardware :: Hanging For A While In Boot

Jan 3, 2016

I would like to share this situation over my HP dv6-61xx Laptop which hangs for some time (I can't say how the average time it takes) during boot. Every time it stuck on black screen during boot (before get into login screen), with no CPU neither HDD activity . It should boot really fast according to my hardware specification but it won't!

I have latest BIOS updated on my laptop and also just installed a brand new SSD (firmware updated) and it didn't changed the boot time.

My intention is to open this thread in order to publish my situation that can be the same that other users. I didn't find any similar related issue over the internet. So I find very important to start debugging it since now and see how far we can go.

Windows Explorer Search Function Hanging

Dec 9, 2015

I don't have the vocabulary yet to state exactly what is happening.

I upgraded from Win 7 and Win 8 on several machines....though I was reasonably happy with Win 7 and Win 8.

After a few months, win explorer started to misbehave on my desktop, but the laptops are not going crazy.

In performing editing and relocation of folders, win explorer was slow to update, and deleted folders were still showing. Certain content seems to hang it up, such a video files. Closing and re-starting WE did not fix the issue and sometimes only a reboot would reset things.

The issue seems to be in the search function. If is always indexing and looking for something and the cursor circle is always in action and the hard drive is working like crazy.

More annoying is that a new windows has shown up with tabs across the top for selecting what is to be displayed and how. I cannot simply get back to the good old WE detailed view that I work with. Where did this new window come from?

Control Panel And Windows Update Hanging

Dec 2, 2015

Don't know where to start really, this is the third time I have had to upgrade from 8.1 to 10 as I keep having problems. The latest started with my printer queue not clearing deleted files and now when I go to control panel it is hanging , will not close down unless I restart the pc( it was fine before the printer problem) now it is continually searching for any latest updates but getting nowhere. I also noticed that when trying to print off photos that it does not always send the files to the print queue. I did reload Gimp the latest version on a couple of days ago, and wonder if this has done something to the registry.

Performance :: System Unresponsive / Hanging And Programs Not Responding

Oct 14, 2015

I just did a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10. My issue is that the system is unresponsive, programs are not responding. I took a video but I can`t seem to find any possibility to post it here, so you can`t see what I`m going through. It is really annoying, and it`s just messed up. Multitasking hangs, shows programs in the background and what not... What to do?

I`m also thinking it is a memory leak, I have 25-30% RAM use after bootup....

Keep Hanging And Using High Disk Usage Partition Order?

Aug 10, 2015

So I've tried multiple different installations of windows 10 on my hp envy 17 (no slug of a machine, i5-12gb ram etc) Stretching back to the previews. I'm also running windows 7 on the laptop in a dual boot situation. The disk has a built in HP recovery partition from the original windows 8 that came with it. I had split the HDD and started dual booting windows 7 as my main OS, but left the other Win 8 OS alone.

When I went to install windows 10 to a new partition from the start, the system became almost unusable. Hanging every few seconds, sometimes taking 1-2 minutes just to write a short series of words as each key press would take ages to register or the mouse wouldn't move. All the troubleshooting showed no particular reason. The only odd standout would be that the disc usage would keep spiking to 99-100% every time, and almost each one of those times it happened as I watched in the task manager/performance manager, i'd be seeing an item at the top usage showing fraction of the normal top write/read speed, something like 1.5mb/s....even with that low a transfer rate, it just kept reporting the disc was at 100% usage while it proceeded to freeze for the next 10 seconds-1 min+.

So I tried re-installing using different methods, different builds, tweaking the paging file and fastboot settings as recommended. Eventually, I figured maybe I'd have more luck booting up the existing windows 8 partition and doing the "get windows 10" upgrade root over the dvd/usb upgrades and clean installs route I had tried. No luck. Marginally better. I've already tried getting proper drivers/upgrades. I've tweaked settings and tested the disc in multiple ways. No errors or issues. If I restarted an install, I never just reinstalled over top, it was wiped to rule out cross contamination. One thing I haven't covered yet is this.

During the installs, I originally had issues with being told I couldn't install to "this gpt partition" That would be fixed by using rufus to make the bootable usb with the file structure. When I try these installs/win 10 logins, it's been either as regular uefi boot mode OR legacy mode (windows 7 support) So i've ruled out the boot mode as a source...I think. A few times I received a message about the partitions not being in the optimal/preffered order by the windows 10 installer. After having read about the issue at the directed ms link, it sounds like it could be an issue. I include the following screen shot of the partition manager, as I don't want to mess with the wrong partitions. Windows 10 is C drive in this case. The partitions before are either recovery or boot partitions. For what system/os

Recovered Data Hard Drive Slow And Hanging

Feb 5, 2016

I use a 2 drive set up, a small solid state for my operating system and whatever game I'm currently into, and a 2TB storage drive.
My storage drive (D:) bombed and I took it in for data recovery. The tech saved about 1.3TB of 1.6 used. He put the image onto my new drive and got it going again. However when I try to access explorer or anything pertaining to D: it hangs for about 45 seconds before giving me access. I ran CCleaner first off to knock out registry entries that lost their home but haven't seen any improvement.
What else should I do to get this thing back in order? I'm on Windows 10.

Computer Hanging And Becomes Unresponsive - Most Times Requires Restart

Aug 23, 2015

Soooo, for the last 3-5 days my computer hangs, I can still move the mouse around, but everything becomes unresponsive! Most the time it requires a restart...

I've tried -
- Virus Check (Will Do One Again)
- Registry Clean
- Windows Files Check (Make Sure They Are Not Corrupt)
- Clean Drive Out (Junk)

But I think, it might be my harddrive, I checked speeds and at first it was 170mbps (Read) but as soon as I say open a program, smacks down to about 0.9mbps...

Even on Task Manager, I never see the drive speed go above 5mbps

Hanging On Blue Startup Screen Endless Spinning Dots

Feb 24, 2016

I returned home from work today to find that my computer won't boot. Great, it's going to one of those weeks... After the bios screen and the windows 10 logo, the computer hangs on the following screen, blue background with the spinning white dots. It looks like it's trying to log in, but it gets stuck. The dots never freeze, or at least not in the hour or two I've left it- it just keeps spinning and trying to log in. Before I go further, I'll give you some specs:

Homebuilt Windows 10 desktop, up to date (upgraded from w7 months ago)
Gigabyte z87x ud3h mobo
Haswell i5-4670k
Nvidia 780ti
8gb ram

Ok, where was I. The strange part about this is that everything was working fine yesterday, and I didn't really do anything since then. I upgraded from W 7 to 10 months ago and it's been working fine. There were no windows updates yesterday (Feb 22nd), and I didn't install any other driver or system updates. In fact the only things I did install were the Steam VR test and a game on steam. There's nothing else I can think of that has changed since it was last working.

Now, onto what I've tried. I'm at a bit of an impasse here because I can't really get the computer to do anything. Booting into bios works, but that's about it. I can't get into safe mode (Due to W10, F8 doesn't work, can't restart into it from desktop, or from login screen). I've messed around with cables inside the tower, plugged and unplugged hard drives. In the course of restarting many times, I got a "bios corrupt" error, after which it started recovering into the secondary bios (losing all my OC settings and other bios settings). But the problem persisted. I then tried updating my bios, but I keep getting "invalid file" messages when I try to update from bios/Qflash. I also don't not have a W10 recovery stick (which I suppose I should have had around? I can't just download this somewhere huh?).

PC Is Randomly Crashing After Installing

Mar 5, 2016

It crashes approximately twice a week. It crashes if I am playing game or just watching videos or doing nothing. Today it crashed 2 minutes after start.

How does it crash: Screen freezes, every sound stops so i cant hear anything and I see the last picture on my monitor. I cant move with my mouse simply I cant do anything so I have to hard reset. There are my PC specs but I don't think there's problems with them. This crashing wasn't happening when I had w7.

Randomly Wakes Up From Sleep

Jan 28, 2016

So as the title says, every now and then Windows 10 randomly decides to wake itself up from sleep. It doesn't happen at any consistent time, some days it stays asleep until I actually turn the PC back on. Using powercfg /lastwake just gives me a wake history count and doesn't provide any information.

I can't figure out why this is happening. I've tried googling it and have found similar complaints but no real solution. It's not hardware that is waking it up and I have already disabled the "allow wake" setting for my network adapters in device manager.

Resizing Text Randomly

Oct 25, 2015

I have had W10 for three days and it has been sending me mad. The text has been resizing and windows closing randomly. Particularly bad when typing. Finally found the cause. The new feature which allows two finger use on the mouse pad is a nightmare while typing. My wrist or fingers touch the pad briefly and then when another thing touches it then all sorts of things happen. So as I typed the text kept changes size. I found myself changing the text size back every few minutes.

It took me some time to find the problem and disable the two finger ability. It might be nice to have if I am editing pictures but it is very difficult to get too. The control panel is difficult to find. It is not in the menu.

I seem to have spent most of three days disabling everything in W10. I seem to have paid for something which is useless.

WiFi Disconnects Randomly

Aug 9, 2015

So, firstly I would like to say that I'm sure most of you have at least heard of this issue if you have never directly dealt with it yourself. This did not just start happening after I upgraded to Windows 10; in fact, it followed me from 7 to 8 to 10 now. Although, each time a new Windows is installed, the issue stops happening for a few days. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

The Problem : I can be doing anything. Listening to music, playing a game. Then suddenly, everything will stop and I'll look. Sure enough, I've been disconnected from my internet. Again, this has happened throughout Windows 7-10. All I have to do is manually reconnect, and I'm back. But usually only for a few more minutes. What I have noticed, however, is that it happens more frequently depending on what I'm doing/playing; I just don't know what makes this occur.

What I have tried : I have been trying to solve this problem for years, which obviously means I have scoured the internet, searching for every possible method that has been suggested. Here's what I've attempted:

Reformatting Windows (like I said, it goes away for a few days after a reformat/an upgrade, but it never stays away).Uninstalling my Wireless card and having Windows automatically reinstall it (this seemed to work for 30 minutes.)Playing with my router settings.Changing my Power Save plans.Playing with the Firewall settings.Uninstalling programs that seemed to be part of the problem.Searching for viruses.

Nothing was effective. And if it was at all effective, it was only temporary.

Computer Randomly Turns Itself Off

Dec 1, 2015

I have recently upgraded to windows 10 pro from windows 7 and prior to this i have been getting BSOD and it turned out to be a faulty ram which i replaced. Now my pc runs with two different brand rams bu have same spec, ddr2 2GB 800.

anyway I have my pc connected to the 60 inch tv in our lounge and I have been getting this problem for a week now. My tv would suddenly lose signal and after 5 seconds the computer turns off. It's not a BSOD or instant shut down. This happens once or twice a day. When i turn the pc back on the lights on the pc turn on but then about 5 to 10 seconds after it shuts down again (still no signal on tv). After i turn it on a second time it turns on fine with signal coming back on instantly. This happens everytime (i have to turn the power on twice to have it actually come on and let the first time turn itself off).

I have checked the temp and its perfectly normal. I dont play games on it, just watch youtube or movies etc.

Could it be the new RAM? I haven't tried taking it out but my pc was fine up until last week (its been atleast 3 weeks since i've upgraded).

edit: only setting i remember changing is the display setting. "change the size of text, app, and other items: 150%(recommended)" this to 100%. the settings to this changes randomly after the restart or on normal boot. sometimes when i boot its on 150% even after changing it to 100% the day before. and after several hours pc would turn off and when i turn on again its on 100%.

Mic Stops Working Randomly

Oct 14, 2015

It all started when I installed Windows 10 on release day. (I was using windows 7 before). I downloaded mumble and then all my games and started playing with friends. After a while I noticed that my friends weren't responding to me I alt tabbed and realized my push to talk wasn't working (this goes for every voice program, the same thing happens the push to talk key stops working). In my Recording options the mic isn't disabled.When I go into recording devices after it stops working when I speak I do not see any green bars, when I go to steams voice test and nada, no green bars. To fix it I either go into Mumble settings and just hit 'apply' or I open up the mumble audio wizard and close it right away and my mic will work again along with push to talk. For some reason this makes my mic work again.

I've tried a fresh install of windows 10, I've tried different mics, different sound cards and the same thing keeps happening. Before I reformatted it got so bad it was happening every 2 minutes. Now it happens every couple of hours and progressively happening more often.To me it seems something is disabling my mic and doesn't re-enable it.
