    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, a couple days ago I was doing a 3D render in DAS Studio, and the machine suddenly shut off as if I'd yanked the cord out of the wall. Basically just went FOOOoooooommm! Today I pulled the machine out, dusted it out a bit with compressed air can(s), checked at least superficially that the...

    download photo

    Yeah, some webforums and whatnot, to implant an image into the post one typically copies the desired image into the clipboard -- say, by lassoing it in Paint and invoking Copy -- and then hitting Ctrl-V to paste it directly into the body of the post. Dunno if the one you're dealing with is one...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, all the other random hangs have been gone since my reinstall-in-place, but when I went to a (different, less special-effects-laden) music club in SL, after a half hour there, it hung to bzzzzzzzzzz and I had to punch reboot. Gah. This doesn't happen on my laptop, also running 1809, but...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Turns out it doesn't want to install from safe mode, so I went back to regular mode and let it install Win10 over the existing Win10 from there. Took hours, but this time it got all the way to the end. I've had my machine running for hours now without random hangs, but haven't yet tried doing...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, it got stuck at 46% for more than 4 hours before I finally gave up on it and quit out of it. I'm wondering if I might have better luck trying this in Safe Mode with Internet, but right now I decided to go ahead and let Windows update me at least back to the current incremental updates of...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Wait, "clean install" means completely wipe my HDD and do a totally from scratch install of EVERYTHING? That is absolutely NOT an option, there are too many things on here that I would not be able to readily get configured back the way I need them to be. I was interpreting "clean install" as...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Okay, when I booted from the DVD and it gave me some longwinded statement that the upgrade option isn't available if I boot from the disc and recommending I start it from the desktop and go onto the disc from there. It does that one the other machine in the house, too. (I have to do that every...

    Update anomaly

    I'm not even sure what the anomaly here even is. Is it the fact it's stating you're up to date, or is it some very subtle thing about the date its showing? I don't even get what the "anomaly" even is, since you haven't been clear as to what in those two screen-grabs constitutes "the anomaly."...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    If I am interpreting post #20 correctly, I should click the "Download tool now" button (the second of the blue buttons) rather than the "Update now" button (the first one) on that page. I have burned a DVD of the iso from the 2nd button, the "Download tool now" button. Should I launch that DVD...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, I finally elected to do the rollback, and I spent several hours trying to bend this thing to my will, and it refusing to play ball. It gave me only 3 points I could go back to, all of them being from Friday, even though the update that took me out of the version of WIn10 that worked fine...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, the trouble with reverting to a previous version of Win10 is that under normal operations, its going to want to reinstall the updates again at its earliest convenience, and that page doesn't make any reference to how to turn that off. IIRC, it had to be done in some nonstandard way, but I...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Bah, why doesn't the tablet app have a simple reply-to-this-thread button, instead of presenting ONLY a quote-a-whole-message button? I found a Reply option in the stack-of-lines button at the top of the app window, and figured THAT was a reply-to-this-thread button, I then posted two...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    If you mean letting Microsoft convert me over from Win7 to Win10, I did that maybe a couple years ago. No, this time it was just the usual, next update of Win10. Should I do this iso-disc thingy anyway? Incidentally, shortly after I posted the previous message, the machine froze again. This...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    The only real changes I made was letting Windoze update itself to 1809. And then updating some drivers. I mean, I don't really see installing a check-the-drivers-and-update-them doodad as a big change, particularly since I don't think that one even launches with the system at startup. Well, it...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    I have installed and am running HWINFO, and I don't see any obvious overheating. Anyway, the time I seem to have hung the last time was at 9:23pm, but there are no obvious things showing up at that time on the Event Viewer logs. I''ve not really checked the other times yet, but from the...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Yeah, dism blahblah blahblah was what I initiated next, and was running when I sent that post, I just didn't want to type all that glop into the message. ;D Event Viewer was something mentioned in message #12. Anyway, dism finished without finding any issues. As for the settings instructions...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Okay, sfc /scannow yields "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations." I am initiating the second action now. As for the times when the machine locked up to BZZZZZZZZZ, they were both in the 5pm hour. How do I get to Event Viewer again? And are the logs something I...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, it freezes to a BZZZZZZZZZZZ noise if I'm in the middle of listening to a streaming radio station, but the other times where it just randomly froze up, it didn't make any noises like that. it simply, quietly, froze up, but in those instances there wasn't anything playing any sound. In any...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, today the machine is locking up on me a lot, typically a half hour after restarting it from the last hang. The house was a bit hot today, but other times when it was about as hot before the update it wasn't hanging. There isn't a c:windows\minidump file or folder that I can find, and this...
