It also seems that this only occurrs when the system is cold. When I reboot after it's been running, I don't seem to experience the problem.
anyone have any thoughts? doesn't appear to be a big issue at the moment, but more of an annoyance. I just done want it to lead to another issue down the road.
Hi and welcome
Several things you can try
1-run a system file check to verify and repair your system files
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>SFC /SCANNOW)
Let us know the results
2-check event viewer (type eventvwr in search). go to the windows log>application tab. Look for critical errors (they have red in the left hand column) that say app hang, app crash, or anything related to the problem.
When you find them note the event ID and source codes and tell us hat they are.
3-boot into safe mode (with networking). Does it still do it then? If not it is probably a software conflict.
4- go into device manager (type device manager in search). Are there any "unknown drivers
" with yellow question marks on them?
Let us know the answers
