The laptop freezes without warning and upon rebooting, the only evidence that I can find that anything went wrong was a message in the even log saying that the previous shutdown was unexpected. There is no crash dump. I hope they roll out the beta soon...

    There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Event viewer (local) and look for the critical errors listed in the last day, week, etc. Then go to the windows log>application tab. Finally the windows Logs>system tabs.

    You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

    When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

    When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

    well the only errors that are showing up on any of these logs is event ID 41 from the kernel-power source. This is the "windows did not shutdown properly". This event has occurred 43 times in the last 15 days, every single time because the system froze.
