    Windows 10 frequent system crashes

    I’m reaching out for help with a persistent issue I’ve been facing. After upgrading my computer to Windows 10, I’ve been experiencing frequent system crashes. These crashes occur randomly but seem to be more frequent when I’m running multiple applications at once. The crashes often result in a blue screen error, forcing me to restart my system, causing me to lose unsaved work.

    I’ve tried to troubleshoot the problem myself by updating my drivers, running a system file check (SFC), and even performing a clean boot. However, none of these solutions have resolved the issue.

    I’ve also checked the Event Viewer for any clues but couldn’t find any clear patterns or critical errors that could be causing these crashes. The system simply crashes without any warning or error messages.

    My system specs are as follows:

    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    CPU: Intel Core i7

    RAM: 16 GB

    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060

    If anyone has experienced a similar issue or has any suggestions on how to resolve this, your input would be greatly appreciated. I’m at my wit’s end with these crashes and would really like to use my computer without fearing the next inevitable crash.

      – When did you update your PC to Windows 10, and what OS did it run before that?
      – How old is the PC? Custom-built or a standard model?
      – What blue screen errors exactly? Always the same or a variety?

      If a new clean install of Windows 10 doesn’t fix this, it’s a BIOS or hardware issue. Set the BIOS to all defaults, and check the hardware.

      Things that might cause it are, for example, a detoriated of insufficient PSU, high temperatures (bad cooling), defective RAM or any error on the motherboard or graphic card.

      In short, yes I’ve worked such before.

      But as I have worked this some hundred plus times it’s rarely the same issue.

      One time it’s malware, then next it’s an old PSU, the next it’s a failed CPU fan, and then another it’s the GPU that needed heatsink compound and cleaning.

      About the only common component is the troubleshooting. We watch for clues what it could be along with inventorying the PC then replacing components we feel could be a factor.

      But all that experience doesn’t tell me what’s wrong with your PC. This is why folk end up at repair counters or buy a new PC.
