More intelligence on random Windows 8.1 freezes
I found a couple more useful forum tips on random Windows 8.1 freezes on some machines.
Tom’s Hardware has this link where a user documents what sometimes happens for me – the machine always comes back normally when hitting the power button twice and remembers where it was.
Before freezing, the mouse moves normally but the computer progressively fails to respond to most programs – often starting with caching a simple web browse request.
Linus Tech tips has a forum where a user says that problems come from Windows 8 drivers in a Windows 8.1 environment, link here .
There are reports of problems with the runtimebroker (KB2895291) and another KB2883200.
