Update Has Caused Overheating / Constant Fan And Freezes
Nov 27, 2015
I updated to Windows 10 using the direct method (downloading the file from Microsoft's site rather than waiting for the update in my bottom right corner). Since I've updated, my computer has begun to drastically overheat; the simplest things such as unplugging and walking around with it will cause it to stutter and freeze for sometimes up to 5 minutes straight.
Yesterday morning after booting my computer, I experience the "your start menu isn't working" bug. I contacted Microsoft support and they still do not have a fix for this well-known failure. I checked my Update History and saw that an automatic update had been installed. Restoring from my last restore point resolved the problem. The culprit was "Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3140741)".
My PC updated Windows 10 yesterday afternoon ("Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3135173)". After rebooting, it completely screwed all my custom file associations (mostly for media files: photos, audio, and video).
A few minutes after the reboot, the Action Center started firing popups at me, one after the other, every few seconds:
"An app default was reset. An app caused a problem with the default setting for .avi files so it was reset to Films & TV."
with a different file extension for each popup (avi, bmp, mp4, and so on) . Even .pdf files were changed from Adobe Reader to Microsoft Edge. As well, all my custom context menu items for these same file types were also deleted. I spent a lot of time setting these associations up and now they were all obliterated. I'd backed them all up in a .reg file but running it didn't do anything. So with a heavy (and angry) sigh I started manually changing the associations back to the way I had them. However, each time I finished making a change within seconds the Action Center would fire the same message as before at me for the file type I'd just changed and it would be reset back to the MS default again.
Finally in exasperation, I just used System Restore to go back before the updates and that solved the problem. Now, the Action Center keeps nagging me to set a time to reinstall this same update. I know I can't block it indefinitely, and there are probably important security patches in it I should have. So the question is: How can I stop it from f'ing up my file associations again?
I have a Windows 7 computer that's a few years old and I got the Windows 10 notification that I can install it so I did, now seems like every time Windows 10 gets a update it freezes my PC.. any recommendations how I can fix this easily?
I am having an issue with updating Windows 10 (Pro). Every time I run Windows Update it appears to successfully download and pre-install the update (I believe it's the main upgrade from November?), but when I restart it gets to roughly 20% each time (roughly 86% files copied) in the pre-login install process and then freezes. I have had this happen a few times. I even reset my PC to a fresh install of Windows 10, as well as ensured that all non-essential peripherals are unplugged, but it has crashed a few times.
I had installed windows 10 from betas and i have never reached 80 celsius on my laptop. i am measuring my temperatures with speedfan and also tried with hardwaremonitor but the same readings. my laptop fan is running on very low RPM if it is even running, i searched for programs that can control fan speed but without luck. i dont know whats wrong and i want to fix it ASAP because my laptop life is decreasing because of higher temps. my usage is not even that big. i have only 7 chrome tabs opened.
So after i upgraded to Windows 10 i noticed my Computer was running slower. I hoped it will become better after a while but so far nothing improved, i also noticed that starting the PC up takes forever.
But the real problem is that it keeps Crashing due to overheating when trying to play a game. I used to play the game on Ultra-settings with firefox in the background no problem on Win7 but now it crashes even when nothing else is running and the game is set to low.
,I have been using Windows 10 and am getting a problem with overheating.when I use VSO convertXtoDVD to do a video conversion which is quite CPU intensive ocassionally Windows 10 will Shut down my Laptop and I never had this problem as much when I was using Windows 7.Could Windows 10 be my problem or do you think it maybe a hardware issue?My Laptop fan is working fine but the laptop is getting quite hot.I ran speedfan after a shutdown and my cpu temps were roughly 56Cfor one core and 57C for the other at idle.I also ran speedfan while using convertX and during the conversion the cpu temps increased to 96C on one core and 97C on the other is this way too hot or should it beable to cope with these temps?
I upgraded from win 7 ultimate to win 10 pro, but then downgraded back to 7 because my HP laptop was overheating all the time.
My problem is that the WIFI show connected with internet access, but I can't open any website or do any download (tried many browsers, the wifi is workin on my phone, and the driver is installed and rechecked, and did troubleshooting).
I have a BSOD issue that only tends to happen when I'm playing a video. This happened quite frequently when watching youtube videos before the upgrade from 8, but after the upgrade it has slowed down some and wasn't really bothering me. Here lately I have been using an emulator to play FFVIII and periodically it will BSOD which is very annoying because sometimes you can go hours before seeing a save point. When attempting to debug the crash dump files it just tells me that I do not have the correct symbols. I'm not an idiot by any means, but there aren't a ton of useful documents out there that walk you through getting the correct symbols. Every driver is as up to date as possible including the mobo and bios.
I bought a new tablet and recently I decided change Windows 10 from English to my own language (Finnish). I have done clean install on my other computers (desktop, laptop and 8 inch tablet) with no any problem.
Here some basic details from the tablet:
Teclast X98 Plus Intel Cherry Trail T3 Z8300 Window10 Tablet PC IPS 2048x1536 4GB RAM 64GB eMMC WiFi HDMI
(Intel Atom X5-Z8300) 64bit Quad Core 1.84GHz
So, I made Usb installation media from MS by using choice "Use settings for this computer". Then I started the installation from the usb. I formatted the C: drive and installation continued untill "preparing files for installation" at 74% crashed "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I started the process many times but allways there are some error like mentioned or "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED" or something else. The best achievement was 94% but never 100.
As I mentioned, I have done clean installation many many times with other computers, even removed all the restore drivers. I know Windows creates new ones. Never before I have had no situation like this. Is that some device fault?
When I go to Start -> Power -> Shut down, it displays the "Shutting down..." window, then the screen goes black, but the laptop won't shut down completely. That is, the WiFi, Bluetooth and Power (light bulb) indicators are still on (and the battery indicator too if plugged), and I have to force (power button long press) the laptop to shut down. I can also shutdown the WiFi and Bluetooth devices using the keyboard at this stage (with FN button). And if I keep the laptop this way long enough (unplugged), my battery will be completely drained.
I recently disabled Hibernation (cmd admin -> powercfg/h off) so I suspected it to be the culprit. So I enabled hibernation again (cmd admin -> powercfg/h off) and my laptop was shutting down as it should. I then disabled hibernation again and the problem came back. I also figured it might be something to do with my power plan so I reset it (Power options -> Change plan settings -> Restore default settings for this plan),
Win 7 user here, wanting to dual boot with Windows 10 preview (on a different partition).
So I made a Win 10 usb boot disc, and it installed it fine. Played around with the new Windows for a few mins, whilst it downloaded an update, and after installing the update, it said it needs to restart, naturally. So I did.
However, since then, the PC keeps restarting, showing a Windows 10 logo, and below that is the text, "preparing automatic repair". Then it just resets, and goes in this endless loop.
So I'm working on a brand new Dell laptop, and I've been working with Adobe Illustrator & Bridge CS6 and Photoshop CC almost every day for the last week and a bit (got it December 12th, 2015). Everything's been fine up until yesterday, when the BSOD hit me suddenly while trying to save a file in Photoshop. Since that initial crash I can't even have Photoshop open for more than a few moments without the same thing happening. Each time it's a Kernel Security Check Failure.
I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic, I ran chkdsk, updated my drivers, did a full system virus scan in McAfee, and even tried uninstalling all Adobe programs, running Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool, and reinstalling from scratch. The moment I get Photoshop up and running again the same thing happens.
Take a look at my minidump files and let me know what might be causing the problem. Photoshop is essential for some important work I'm trying to get through by the end of the year
I'm running a 64 bit Windows 10 laptop. On idle, the System process is showing a high memory usage of more than 150 MB, usually more than 200 MB. Using poolmon the pooltag SpDN showed up with a memory leak. It leads to the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver, iaStorV.sys. How should I go about fixing the problem?
So i needed to factory reset my new desktop for reasons unneeded and overnight my parents switched it off and now its on a constant loop landing on "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" and loops again.
I made a USB Drive containing Windows 10 and it'll go to the install screen but when i do try to install it it will tell me to restart my computer and try again. Going to the repair area, trying to reset it, it will tell me both "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again" (when keeping files) and "Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing" (When removing everything). I have no system restore point since its new either and startup repair finds nothing.
I got a brand new HP Windows 10 laptop last week and on the second day of having it I noticed some internet performance issues. Basically this laptop will only connect to the Internet for about 10 minutes before switching to only a "limited" connection. When I try and disconnect from the Internet in the wifi submenu it refuses to disconnect. If I go off of that submenu and try to click into it again the submenu also completely refuses to open? I've tried alternatives such as accessing it through the control panel but this laptop refuses to click ANYTHING to do with the Internet at this point. I've been forced to restart and even completely switch off my laptop after this as its either frozen altogether or just been in useable as I needed the Internet for what I was doing. Like this is a brand new laptop it's not like there's any files on it that are causing slow performance or anything?
I started having issues today while playing World of Warcraft. Occasionally it would freeze and I would get a notification along the lines of "Nvidia display driver has crashed and recovered successfully". It started happening more frequently and sometimes was restarting my PC instead of recovering. I tried to update the Nvidia driver (I did have an update) but no joy, it happened again. I tried logging into WoW and quickly changing settings, however it restarted again, this time even windows refused to recover.
It now attempts to boot about 3-4 times then the troubleshoot options appears saying it failed to load windows. System restore can not find a restore point and Go back to the previous build refuses to work also. I am at a loss to what is causing this? At first I thought it was an issue with overheating but the temp never even went above 80. I tried rolling back the nvidia update in safe mode but that did not work either.
Installed the latest video driver rebooted fine. Checked again for Windows updates. Found 2 critical updates. Installed rebooted, and has not stopped rebooting. The pc never shows anything on screen or gets to a place I can boot from disk. Switched HDs to go back to win7 but still the same. Cannot get anything on screen. Just constant boot.
I've upgraded to windows 10 on release and have been away on holiday for the past 2 weeks. Today I come back to find explorer.exe keeps restarting about once every 2 mins and is causing full screen games to minimise and change the computer focus.
ive updated and checked up on all of my drivers and in the scan they seem to be fine and completely up to date, and for a day after I didn't have any more problems but the problem recently started up again, and I haven't been able to open up any of my adobe apps and most of my applications without encountering the BSOD. I'm not sure but I believe I'm also having problems with photoshop being unresponsive but I'm unsure if that's possibly related? since it started up after the BSOD problems showed up
I have built a number of PC's and my latest PC crashes at irregular intervals. I have tested the memory and have a new power supply. This was occurring in Windows 7 and is still happening after upgrading to Windows 10.
It happens at irregular times and does seem to be heat based.
Windows 10 gives me a blue screen message about closing down and I have checked the event logs with out success.
