I cannot replicate the error at all, but on random days, my computer will just completely hang. No mouse or keyboard response. So therefore, CTRL+ALT+DEL is completely useless. I should note that my mouse and keyboard are wireless (RF, I think). The only way to remedy the situation is to press the reset button on my computer, or do a hard shutdown and turn it on, again. Of course, I'm then prompted to ether go into Safe Mode or start the computer normally. I wouldn't know what to do in Safe Mode, anyway.
I've looked through the Event Viewer and I can't see anything that looks like it could be causing the error. Maybe I'm missing something. I don't know.
Does anyone have a similar problem or at least know how to fix it? I'm wondering if there's a hardware problem somewhere or if it's software.
Hi and welcome
There should be something in event viewer.
There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.
You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).
When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.
When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.
If nothing appears obvious in the windows log>application tab you should also check the system tab.
If there is still no critical errors run a system file check to verify and repair your system files
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Let us know the results from the report at the end.
