I am writing this tiny tip after 2 days of issues with my new Windows 8, Windows 10 on my computer. You just will not believe how many things I had to do for “him”. First of all, I formatted my C drive to make it ready for Windows 10 and Windows 8. After installing Windows 10 and Windows 8, I noticed that it freezed up many times and I was desperately trying to find a fix for the issue. It turned out much, much more simpler than I was expecting.
Simple solution for Windows 10 and Windows 8 freezing issue
I am not sure if this will work for you, since we know there are so many different Windows 10 and Windows 8 issues out there. The issue that I had created an Event 41 in Eventer Viewer that was described as Kernel-Power. So, basically, the screen would just freezes and the computer wouldn’t even restart. I had to manually press the power button and wait for like 5 seconds for it to restarts. After that, the same thing happened after a few minutes.
I noticed that Windows 10 and Windows 8 froze up most of the time when I switched between the Modern User Interface and the Desktop mode. Not sure why. Next, after seeing that nothing did work to fix this issue, I basically formatted the entire Hard Drive, obviously, backing files up before. Imagine my despair when I realized that even that didn’t work. Installing all the drivers I could possibly found also didn’t fix the issue. Here’s the simple solution that fixed the freezing for me. I hope it will solve it for you, as well.
Windows Update fixes Windows 10 and Windows 8 freezing
On your Windows 10 and Windows 8, go to the Charms bar, either by moving the mouse to the right corner of your display or by searching directly typing Windows Logo + W. Type in search “Windows Update“, open it. Don’t forget that it’s under the Settings tab. Then, check for updates. On my print screen you will not see any, but before I had 6 updates there. Choose and install them all. After that, you’ll find them by typing “View installed updates” in Search and you’ll see something like on the third picture.
