Windows 10 has a huge number of features that make our lives easier, but it has also been known to lock up, freeze, shut down, blue screen and generally misbehave from time to time. Following a restart, here are some steps you can take when your Windows machine is regularly crashing.
Check for Windows updates
The first thing to ensure is that you’re running the latest version of Windows.
- Hit the Start button at the bottom left, then type ‘Windows Update’ into the Start menu Search bar
- Open the Windows Update tool, which will alert you to any new updates
- If an update is available, be sure to download and install it
If the problems persist there may be something more serious at issue, such as with your PC\’s components themselves.
