Freeze

  1. #11


    No change. FFfreezes more than IE with Chrome not so often but when Chrome freezes have to hit the off button and restart. I have checked everything, replaced video card, have run memtest scanned the HDD. Leads me to think its the motherboard, it is just 12 mnths old.

    Ok, Formatted HDD and went back to win 8. Everything is now fine. I will get the 8.1 update and see what happens then. I have also not put any of the software i had on prior.

    If I may suggest, make a full backup of system disk now while everything's working fine and some other ones as you step further, you can discard all but newest one letter on.

    With a full backup like that, you are always 15 minutes to half an hour to back to working system even if HDD croaks, change to SSD or whatever. Just have to keep it current, I do it every month.
