Solution Windows 8 Frequently Hang / Freeze Without a Cause.
If you are used to Windows 8 are suddenly crashes / hangs for no apparent reason, you are not alone, .. There are some solutions that I have outlined, it may be a solution to hang his PC. In Windows 8 there are at least six major cause which causes frequent hangs Windows 8:
1. Driver VGA/video.
Update your graphics drivers that support Windows 8 from the Device Manager. You can test it with two ‘versions’ of your VGA driver support Windows 8. Komplenter the each other. ‘version’ is the first new driver that is provided on your chipset manufacturer’s website:
- Intel: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/
- nVidia: World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies | NVIDIA
- ATI: Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
and ‘version‘ second driver is in the DVD / CD package of PC / laptop or standard VGA driver or the built-in Win8.
2. Dynamic Tick Processor.
In theory, the PC processor generally includes features Dynamic Tick which logic function is similar to the clock – ticking every few rate. Knock (tick) was then passed on to Windows to perform some specific task. Unfortunately, knock (tick) is constantly kept working and sending interrupt that force Windows (OS) spend time rate and processor power, even within the PC is idle.
Open a command prompt (Run as Administrator), type cmd and restart the following:
- bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
3. Power Setting CPU (Intel chipset average).
This problem is most often found in the Intel chipset VGA, PC hangs while in the Power Saving mode.
Try disable the C-State setting or EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep ® Technology) in BIOS settings (if any). These settings exist within BIOS or UEFI PC is usually in the ‘Performance’ or ‘Power Management’ or something. Read also about the connection error with CPU compatibility setting NX / XD in your BIOS.
You can use ThrottleStop program to check if the BIOS / UEFI you what does not provide this feature and enable / disable (Intel only!).
Trick 1: Create A does not have Enable / Disable Setting C-State in BIOS.
Go to advanced settings ‘Power Plan’ (Control Panel -> Power Plan -> select you Power plan and click “Change plan settings” -> Change advanced power plan settings -> tab “Processor Power Management”) and set two options:
- Minimum processor state = 50% -70%
- Maximum processor state = 50% -50% or 70% -70% (the two must match)
Trick 2: How to Disable EIST feature without having to enter BIOS:
- Go to the folder “C: Windows System32 drivers”.
- Find, backup and rename the file “intelppm.sys” so any name, for example. “soup-konro.sys”. To be able to rename this file you must have Full Control permissions.
- Right-click ‘Computer’, select Properties. Check the status of processor speed (GHz) you.
- EIST OFF = same speed ex. @ 2:30 GHz ~ 2.30 GHz
EIST ON = speed difference, ex. @ 2:30 GHz ~ 2.00 GHz
4. Browser (Ex: Google Chrome)
For those of you who use the WRP on Intel motherboards and often have a hang / freeze suddenly, try this solution:
- Open Desktop WRP.
- Click on the Win + C (Charm bar) or Win + I (for direct entry Settings).
- Control Panel.
- Programs and Features
- Turn Windows Features on or off
- Check the “Hyper-V” (including its sub-components, even if you are not using a virtual machine).
- Restart (Windows will restart 2x scr For complete system configuration).
1. If before you use virtual applications such as VMWare or VirtualBox (VM with its 64bit only), it is advisable to convert the application VM VMWare / VirtualBox you into Hyper-V, and import it via Hyper-V Manager. This is because the Hypervisor does not allow VT-x extensions (including that in the root of your OS) running within the virtual environment, as a result of virtualization application you do not work effectively.
2. If you enable Hyper-V solution above does not work, try to enable the first setting “virtualisation extensions (VT-x)” in the BIOS / UEFI you. For checking whether the Hypervisor is active or not after restart you can see the results of the log entry ‘Hypervisor successfully started’ within System Event Viewer there or not.
How to enable Hyper-V on the bottom line will make your OS root (which you use) work on a level Hypervisor, which means virtualized. This method is not the same as in the Virtual Machine, because the OS you still have direct access to hardware such as graphics cards for gaming, etc.
btw, you can also use an alternative browser such as Firefox or Chrome instead of IE that is frequently reported cause WRP crash / hang.
5. Type of Installation (Upgrade or Clean Install)
You should install Win8 via “Clean” install, and avoid the “Upgrade”. Upgrade installation is often more problematic than the clean install. If you’ve already installed ‘Upgrade’ and agan PC often hangs:
- Backup your data2.
- Format HDD (not have to remove clean to avoid problems krn swapping HDD)
- Install “Clean” Win8 you, let your driver you install Windows Update automatically.
6. AVG Antivirus (and some antivirus).
Some antivirus (especially who do not support Win8) indicated frequent cause Win8 PC hang her, even after uninstalled.
Solution: Use the default Microsoft Windows Defender.
