Hi, 

 

I have an Acer 4745G(i5-460M, 6GB RAM, 1TB SSHD), it came with Windows 7. This setup has ran very stable for months.

I recently updated to Win10 but encountered bunch of freezes so I restore an image of just my Windows partition using Macrium Reflect.

 

Now I'm also encountering random freezes in Windows 7 that ran very stable before.

 

Is there a chance that a bad reimage is causing this, I verified the checksum beforehand. 

 

I ran memtestx86, seatools long generic test, they all passed.

 

Where else can I start?

 

Also seperate Q, my laptop spec says the RAM is PC3-8500, is it alright to use higher RAMs like PC3-10600, 12800. I want to reuse them if I get a new laptop. What should I look for in the specs. Thanks.

 

Thanks,

Senri

Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and select Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
Copy and paste sfc /scannow in the command prompt, then press Enter to start the scan.  
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished and if intergrity issues are found, please do the following.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png then copy and paste the following in the Search programs and files box.
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Double click on this icon to  
the CBS log, copy and paste the log in your topic.
 
If this fails to place the icon on your desktop run the command from the Command Prompt.  Use the instructions I provided at the start of this tutorial.
 
This log may be very large, if you have problems posting it try breaking it into smaller parts.  When you copy these parts you will highlight the section you are going to copy.  If you leave that section highlighted it will give you a quick reference for where you left off. 

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi, I have done that and it passed. I had a blue screen yesterday, which I haven't seen in a while but at least it's not a freeze without info.

 

The error code is rather vague?

After the image restore I also checked that my partition is aligned. Any more thing I can do?

 

If it's  the CPU and/Mobo how would one check for that...would a stress test help using Hiren BootCD?

 

Thanks,

Senri

Go to Microsoft and use the Fix it there.
