A lot of people have been reporting windows 8 will freeze up randomly.
Its been happening to me especially when using a web browser or when my computer idles a few hours. Ill come back its frozen and Ill have to hit the reset button.
All my drivers are up to date etc etc
I read up and was told it was an issue with Windows 8 Dynamic Ticks and the processor.
I was told to input the following command to disable dynamick ticks. I am going to try that as well tonight and see if it fixes it.
bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
have to enter it in command prompt with admin privlidges (gotta right click cmd.exe and run as admin)
Some people have said that it was fixed for them when they upgraded their Mobo's BIOS. Ive got the last version of the Rampage IV BIOS but not the very latest. I plan to upgrade tomorrow.
I have a 3930K and the Rampage IV. Win 8 PRO
Has anyone else heard about this issue with Windows 8. Its been around since Developer preview and Im running the retail release of 8 professional.
Im surprised Microsoft has not fixed it yet.
Anyone know if the latest BIOS will fix it?
