Hi,

 

I have been trying to solve a random computer lockup problem for over a year. My desktop is set to never sleep but every few weeks , sometimes months, it spontaneously locks up.  The screen is blank and I must do a forced reboot.  I cannot access it through any remote programs either.  It always seems to occur when the machine is idle over the weekend after I have left my office.

 

Oddly, the other computers on my Lan lose connection to the router as well. Once my desktop is rebooted, all machines can connect again. I tried reinstalling my network card drivers and all Win10 updates are installed on a regular basis. Not sure if it's a driver or something else. 

 

Thanks,

Steve
