Fix Windows 10 Freezing Issues

Resolve Windows 10 Freezing Problems:

Can’t get that work done because of system freezes?

Annoying, right?

This issue is not new to me. The first time I have migrated and upgraded to Windows 10, I have experienced issues, including this one.

Here are the things I applied to resolve this issue.

Step 1: Disconnect your Devices

Please try to unplug all your external USB devices, including the mouse, keyboard, mobile phones, and printers from your system. Then restart your computer to check if they are causing this issue to occur.

If a certain device is causing your computer to freeze, you can either fix the device or replace it.

Step 2: Check for Defective Hardware Devices

The damaged device hardware is one of the things that can cause computer freezing issues. Once you have confirmed that you have a defective device, please replace the specific device.

If the issue persists, you might have more than one defective devices.
