    netsh winsock reset
  • Close Command Prompt and restart your computer.

Remove problematic software

Some software’s create problems with Windows 10. Like Speccy, Acronis True Image, Privatefirewall, McAfee, and Office Hub App can freeze your system. Uninstall these programs. Even I faced bluescreen reboot loop issue with a very small font software.

Disconnect all USB devices

Sometimes connected devices create freezing issues or blue screen issues with Windows 10. Disconnect any connected USB device before you turn on your system. When Windows 10 boots, you can connect your USB devices again.

Download latest chipset drivers

Update chipset drivers on your computer. Sometimes old USB 3.0 drivers can create issues with Windows 10. If possible update your USB 3.0 drivers also.

Update network drivers

Bad and old network drivers can also freeze Windows 10. Visit your network adapter manufacturer’s website and download the latest drivers. Also, update your Wifi card drivers. And if possible switch to a wired connection.

For some users, disabling Location Services can also fix these errors. If you have desktop or laptop without GPS device, disable location service. One service is better. To disable Location Service Go to Settings> Privacy> Location and turn that off.

Disable your dedicated graphic card

This is one of the main reason to Windows 10 freeze or crash. If you are facing blue screen error disable your display drivers. Run your computer without a graphic driver to see if an error occurs again or not. Download latest driver or last official driver for your graphic card. Avoid beta drivers and also do not download from Windows update. To disable your dedicated graphic card, do the following:

Windows 10 Device Manager

  • Press Windows Key + X and select Device Manager.
  • locate your dedicated graphic card in Device Manager and right click it.
  • Choose Disable from the menu.
  • Check for latest driver updates for the graphic card.

Certain BIOS setting such as AMD Cool’n’Quiet or Fast Boot can also freeze your computer. Disable these features from BIOS and check if the issue is resolved. After you’ve disabled these settings, save changes and restart your computer.

Update your BIOS

Update your systems BIOS drivers. Old BIOS drivers can also create blue screen errors. Visit your motherboard manufacturer’s website and download the latest BIOS update. Please avoid this option if you do not know what BIOS update is. It can permanently damage your motherboard.

Flash your SSD

Flash your SSD firmware to newer one can also fix freezing and BSOD issues. You have to be careful while flashing your SSD firmware.
