Since I upgraded to windows 10, I get random 0.5 seconds freezes while i play games, which run smoothly between freezes. I use an acer aspire 5742G laptop, Intel core i5 cpu 2.53 GHz, NVidia GeForce GT 540M gpu. I haven't had this problem before upgrading to windows 10. I am pretty sure overheating is not the issue - I have checked the temperatures, I also have a cooler. The problem also applies to games with low cpu usage.
I've been having this issue for nearly a year now (probably around 9 months). It started after my little sister made me get a virus by her trying to download something onto my laptop. I've since taken it to a reputable computer shop as well as followed instructions from other computer wizs and I think it's no longer there. Issue is, my computer has kind of developed another problem after that. It freezes on it's own sometimes, when I pick it up or even when it's on a desk and immobile. It would also freeze when I play a game sometimes, loud buzzing sound as the game continues in loops I believe. I had BSOD problems earlier this year that was solved (Apparently. I haven't gotten any in about 4-5 months) when I had Windows 7 but this issue still persists.
When it would freeze and I manually turn off my computer and turn it back on, the laptop would sometimes say no wifi could be detected. At all. Not mine, not my neighbors, nothing. I've never really taken it out of the house so I don't know if it'd act the same elsewhere. I would then shut it down and take out the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in. Sometimes the wifi would work then or I'd go connect it to my Internet Modem and the wifi would start working over there too.
So I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It's not overheating as I had it cleaned less than 4 months ago by a professional. I've had this laptop for two years and I really wanted it to last me at least 4 because I'll be going into an animation program soon and to get a laptop of the same caliber costs $1000+.
Is there anyway I can solve this freezing issue/loss of wifi on my own? I'm thinking of taking it back to the computer shop (they've had a hard time trying to find out what's wrong with it) but I'm sure they'll charge me again and I'm not willing to end up paying a lot to get this fixed. Might as well buy a new one if it costs more than $500 to fix...
P.S. I'm also having issues with my sound card where I'd plug in my headphones and it would work but when I take it out, my laptop would say it's still plugged in. Addtionally, my CD Rom Drive makes a loud sound when I try to skip through CDs and DVDs. Sometimes it won't even skip and just continue making the sound. I don't know how my laptop has gotten to this state as I've taken very good care of it (minus allowing a younger sibling to use it but you live and learn). These issues don't bother me much as I can use a DVD player for my DVD's and the sound issue isn't an issue for me. I don't really care for it since I use headphones 90% of the time or have the sound off.
I've been getting random lockups only while playing FPS games. The crashes seem to happen less if I don't run Razer synapse program. Generally they do not autorestart or BSOD so it is hard to track. Today it created a minidump.
I guess I should also mention everything is fully up to date. I don't run any antivirus and I'm pretty tech savvy. Probably has something to do with the nvidia drivers.
The issue I am having is the computer is freezing when I am playing games or have multiple instances of YouTube open. I get no error message and have to do a hard restart of my computer. I get no error messages or any indication of what the error is. I think its a graphics driver issue, a cpu issue, or a HDD issue.

Everything is new except for the hard drive, I kept that from my old computer. I did not have this issue on my old computer.
I built my PC around august of this year and generally the machine runs fine. Lately though I've gotten BSOD several times in these past few days. It usually happens when I'm playing a game (Warframe if the name matters) and the crash will say the usual "something happened need to restart yada yada", the errors however are different sometimes.
At first I got IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL then I got SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and some others I can't remember off the top of my head. As I was writing this actually it crashed once more so it's not exclusive to crashing while playing a game. I also uninstalled the game and then reinstalled a week back but that was with steam's verify integrity of cache option. Because the crashes started occurring after the game was verified I decided to completely uninstall then reinstall it.
Again the computer crashed, this time with a FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE error. Anyways I do have the crash dump files but how to locate the source of the problem...
Dump File Dropbox Folder: [URL] ....
Also, after the first 3 crashes I opened my motherboard provided update tool and updated the BIOS and some other drivers, the crashes continued to happen though, there are two updates for the Intel LAN driver and AsRock LAN driver that don't seem to update, they'll download and install but when the program refreshes the update list, the same two drivers say they need to update to the version that I technically just updated them to. Don't know if that's a related issue at all, got another crash too, included the dump file in the list above also. As the crashes occur I'll add more dumps to the dropbox folder.

after installing windows 10 (clean install) my laptop completely freezes, so far happend only while playing games. This is possibly related to nvidia gpu, because basicaly nothing else uses it. I dont get any error or bsod and nothing in the event log, it just hangs with the "bzzz" sound and i have to restart.
Games a tried playing are heroes of the storm and rocket league, got freezes playing both. Time it takes to freeze is random sometimes 10minutes and sometimes 3 hours.
Upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro. I think I took care of the update bug so I don't believe it is the issue.
Updated GForce Drivers after using DisplayDriverUninstaller. SSD C: Drive firmware updated. Ran Memtest86+ on each stick for 8 passes with no errors. Updated audio drivers. Updated network drivers. Updated SATA drivers. Ran Windows Defender Full Scan with no findings. Ran Malwarebytes Full Scan with no findings.
It happens when I play games. I ran one 3DMark test with no issues. Ran it again and it reset as it normally does. I ran Furmark for 5 mins with no issue.
So this started like last week where i get these small lags when my pc freezes for like 1-3 seconds. It can happen when i play games or just browsing. It happens probably like 2 times every hour. This is a problem for me because when i play csgo and im shooting towards someone and everything just lags and i die. It's a small problem but it is really frustrating. And just today while i was playing Arma 3 my pc completely froze and i had to restart it by holding down the button on the case.
This is a problem that has been plaguing me across years and several computers.Every hour or so, and it doesn't seem to matter what application I have open, Windows will become unresponsive for a few seconds. Then it will go away.
On this system I have 8 gb ram and I am running light applications. I have a new i-5 skylake processor and a good asus mobo. And a reputable SSD, too. I just installed windows 10 pro x64 a week ago. I have this problem even without third-party AV, as I found out after I uninstalled my AV.
So recently I installed a new driver supplied from the GeForce Experience app. I believe it was version 361.43 or so. After installation, I turned off my computer. Come back next day. Turn on laptop, computer bugs out after signing in, then crashes... Now, Windows 10 responded with a few errors. First came DPC watchdog violation. Then came something like nvidkrnl or something. Then nvid something something Fatal error. Finally came less than or equal to. All error reports came on separate occasion. The second and third errors are recurring. Now, I tried uninstalling everything related to Nvidia to see if the issue will be gone (as this has happened before. Uninstalling everything fixed it last time ). None of my recovery points are present.
Since I've updated from windows 7 to windows 10, the computer occasionally freezes for about 10 to 30 seconds and nothing but the mouse pointer works.
It happens every now and then but mostly a few minutes after the computer has started and then every now and then. If it freezes in the middle of a download for example, the download simply continues after the freeze ends.
I have scanned the PC with numerous anti virus applications such as ESET NOD32, Malewarebytes and Norton.
I upgraded from a fully-functioning Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 this weekend. The upgrade process seemed simple enough, but I am suffering from intermittent freezes which can only be resolved with a full (hardware button) reset.
At a random time - after anything from 5 to 50 minutes - the screen will suddenly power off (the monitor itself will usually tell me it is going into sleep mode). Sometimes I'm in the middle of something; sometimes I've gone away and have returned to an unresponsive PC. Sometimes I will see the mouse cursor and desktop freeze for about a second before the screen goes black; sometimes I won't. If I'm playing music, it will stop. Ctrl-Alt-Delete doesn't do anything - but the hard drive light still flashes, as if Windows is still running. (The error logs don't *seem* to show anything out of the ordinary, other than that I then have to do a socking great reset!)
I've tried various things already - I've made sure the graphics drivers are up-to-date (via an install from scratch); I've disconnected everything from the USB ports; I've booted with everything in Startup set to disabled... But the problem keeps recurring, and I really don't want to have to scrub everything I've got and do a 'nuclear' install. (In theory, I'm dual booting with Windows 7, but have not booted into that for years, probably.)
Safe mode seems stable, as does the screen before you actually log on, so I'm inclined to think it's a driver issue or something, but they're all up-to-date, too. I'm running a single monitor, BTW.
I did a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit Pro version recently and everything was going fine (except for high disk usage which I fixed with disabling of superfetch).Now my problem is that first time I experienced my computer freezing was in online web browser games. The sound goes on a loop and I cannot move my mouse cursor nor use my keyboard. (caps lock cannot be turned on or off but keyboard is still on with lights)
Had to force shut down of the PC.Event Log didn't show anything , only showed the time at which my PC turned on from unexpected shut down.Now next thing I did was uninstall some Audio and Network drivers and also tried to use AMD's Beta driver but still experienced the random freeze.Should I give up on Windows 10 ?Maybe BIOS update ? "only install if you have windows 8" - from MSI's 2.xx BIOS driver descriptions
Although normally random, the freeze (to which this dump file is related) happened whilst listening to music in firefox, using teamspeak 3 and playing guild wars 2, after 2 hours with no issues.I have run memtest86 in multiple memory configs, only to receive under 10 errors in test 13 which I understand is OK.The errors are systematic for my type of memory (all sticks show similar errors in test 13 regardless of memory slot).

When I am playing certain games, my pc will randomly reboot. no BSOD, no warning, nothing. Iv'e done the following to try and discover and troubleshoot the issue ...
-Monitored GPU & CPU temps: stays stable, happens at many different temps, but nothing high, roughly 55C or so
-disabled all overclocks: set my CPU back to normal profile and disabled GPU settings back to default
-Updated video drivers: Currently have 361.75, problem persisted on older version as well
-ran memory test: no errors found
-performed GPU stress test: never rebooted, did this for an hour
The games ive had this happen to are: borderlands 2, Firefall & GTA V (single player)
-I checked my logs and i seem to have a Kernel-power event 41 error happening.
I would like to avoid wiping my system and starting over, this is my last attempt before I go this route.
I keep getting BSOD and random freezes that make me unable to use the computer, so i have to restart it and hope that won't happen again. Happens randomly, there is not an specific trigger to this. Leaving the minidump file to make it easier!
So I get those crashes where my screen freezes and then goes dark ( lost signal). It happens at random with Blade and Soul , and happens every 5 minutes with World of Warcraft.
This started like 2 months ago before that the screen would just flash and I'd get the "display driver stopped responding and recovered".
Yesterday ( 02/16/2016) I got 5 crashes and I got 1 today.
What I already tried:
A lot of different versions of AMD drivers ( using DDU to install the new ones) Reset windows 10 on a lot of occasions Removed Windows 10 auto updater. Tried the amd support forums ( it only made matters worse) Tried the World of warcraft support forums ( also only made matters worse)
My PC crashes when i play games it always crashes while playing like rocket league, borderlands 2, chivarly medieval warfare, mass effect 2 and alot of other games. When it crashes my screen changes color like green pink red white etc. after that it goes gray and then my PC goes very loud after that it shuts down and then restarts.
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.
About 6 months or so ago i started having blue screens after months of trying to find out what was wrong i reinstalled windows and installed minimal programs unfortunately i neglected to save the old dumps so these are the only new ones i have I'm trying to make more for more information on them but for now these are all that i have. debug-DESKTOP-6VPVOCB-xxxx.zip
in the last few days when playing games (BFBC2, BF3 and Sticky Bomb), my computer has been freezing at various points (sometimes within a minute, sometimes after 2 hours), and on reboot i get BSOD sometimes with different error messages such as "system_services_exception".
After the initial reboot BSOD i seem to sometimes get a 2nd BSOD such as "system_thread_unhandled_exception", "IRQOL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and other error messages. Occasionally after rebooting I get a freeze just on desktop screen, which never happens unless I have just had a freeze in game.
Before this started happening I have installed a new sound card and installed new drivers for my graphics card. I have since tried taking out the sound card (same problem seen) and also rolling back to the previous nvidia drivers with no avail.
I tried running memtest, but after 2 hours it was only over 50% so gave up for now, but at that point it hadn't seen any errors.
My rig is:
Asus M5A97 R2.0 16 GB Corsair Vengence MSI GTX 970 AMD FX-8350 4.2GHz Asus Xonar DGX Corsair 750Watt PSU win 10 64 bit
The games I'm getting these problems with are Killing Floor 2, Fallout 4, and GTA V. I'm not doing anything in particular to cause these crashes, they seem to just happen over a certain amount of time, with Killing Floor 2 about 15 minutes of game play.
I am having this problem with my computer, where I am getting random BSOD's when i have been playing any game for about 5-10 minutes. The BSOD is either the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or the APC_INDEX_MISMATCH
