Hello all,

If I go into classic control panel and click on Network and Sharing Center... it completely freezes the control panel window and does not open... Anyone else experiencing this?

If so, got a fix?

Thanks,
Layne

I solved this issue by going into programs and features, turn windows features on or off, selected SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support (which was not selected), reboot.

BAM! Network shares appear!

Thanks,
Layne

I think Diablo 3 is more dependent on your ram/cpu as to where Borderlands 2 is more dependent on your GPU.

I kinda want to stick with windows 10 because I know I will eventually end up here...

How big of a pain was it to revert back?

I am away from my home PC right now but I will definitely give it a shot once I am home.

I am going to run some test on the memory tonight.

BTW sfc /scannow found errors it could not repair... SFCFix could not repair or DISM /Restorehealth could not repair...

I am wondering if this is ALL Windows 10 causing this....

Ok so I am having major issues with freezing and instability.

I know you had mentioned power supply and memory.

I am going to have to do a thorough check on all of my components to see what the cause is.

Basically... I am new to this... If possible, can you please give me a step by step on what you would do if one were to bring you their pc and say its having serious freezing issues.

It is on your bench.... What steps do you go through to minimize the issue.

Here is what I BELIEVE to be.... Please add your own...

CPU has ran intel burn test, Prime95, etc. for hours on end and is stable. The issue has to be another component.

#1. Perform a clean boot.
#2. Run Memtest +86 on individual sticks of ram (completing entire lengthy test)
#3. Test power supply (have no idea how to do this other than checking wattage in HWMonitor)
#4. Test Motherboard (no clue how to do this)
#5. Test GPU for instability (no clue how to do this)

My problem is if it is a program.... How do you know it is the one causing the freezes? I get nothing in event viewer...

Is there a program out there that basically checks for freezing and tells you the cause?

Sorry for all of the questions.... kind of a noob.

Thanks,
Layne

I believe I have found some info as to why this is happening.

In services.msc.... Browser says "Failed to Read Description: Error Code 2"

Could this by why?

I also ran SFC /SCANNOW and found corrupted files... it could not repair....

So I ran DISM /Restorehealth and it could not repair....

Then I ran SFCFix and the end result was error 0x800f081f the source files could not be found.

Yikes.

I am able to ping the norm 192.168.1.1 but I am still unable to see the drives when I try to browse for them or map them under map network location.

I am not savvy in this area btw.

I have no idea what the fix is....AHHHHHHHHH  :teeth:

Hello all,

I am getting some freezes from time to time. When it freezes...it is either temporary or permanent and requires a power down and power on.

Scenario 1:
When playing a game.... the game freezes yet the pc is still responsive... If I hit CTRL+ALT+DEL it will become unfrozen shortly afterwards...the picture blinks and the game is responsive.

Scenario 2:
Right after a restart if I begin to activate a program or access file explorer...The PC freezes permanently requiring a power off/on.

Please help...So annoying to have these little instabilities....

Thanks,
Layne

Hello all,

If you could please help....

I have a USB hub attached to my Netgear R8000 Nighthawk router.... I was able to map the drives in 8.1 Pro but now I cannot see them nor can I map them.

However, I can still see the drives on my phone or others computers so I know they are accessible in regards to the router functionality...

I have tried so much... no idea how to fix...

Please help...

I have ran tweaking windows repair in safe mode and the problem is still there...

Thanks,
Layne

This issue was rectified by a combination of the SFCFix.exe file that Boggin provided and updating to Windows 10 Pro.

Thanks again for your help,
Layne

I decided to give it a shot and I was able to fix this issue by:

1. Download the Windows 10 ISO and saving to desktop.
2. Use Rufus 2.2 to mount the ISO to my jump drive
3. Updated Nvidia drivers to 353.62
4. Disabled SLI
5. Clean boot

Installed perfectly.

Thanks for your help,

Hello all,

I managed to get Windows 10 Pro x64 installed tonight. I love it so far.

The only issue I have ran into is that all of my network drives that are plugged into my router are now missing and I am unable to map them?

I have a Netgear Nighthawk R8000 and I am plugging a powered hub into... I had them  all mapped in Win 8.1 Pro but unable to connect or map now?

Any help is much appreciated... Thanks guys!

After reading a little bit more...

I am seeing that Windows 10 is giving guys a lot of problems that have setups similar to mine.

https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/856761/geforce-drivers/windows-10-display-driver-feedback-thread-7-16-15-/32/

I may just wait for more stability.

What is your preference to install Windows 10?

1. Manually forcing windows update to download Windows 10
2. Download Media Creation Tool and install from the tool.
3. Install from USB drivey.
4. Install from ISO burned to disc


Trying to find the most stable method... I really don't want to go through the instability I just went through last night again...

#1. Create Restore Point (cause its running unbelievably fantastic)
#2. Uninstall the nvidia drivers
