Hello
I was on windows 8 for a very long time and recently went on windows 10 to be able to play Sea Of Thieves.

I've never had problems with my 4-5ish years of windows 8
But since i've installed win10, my pc freezes a lot.
It can be while watching a video, playing a video game, being on discord with friends...
My sound will be gone, my screen will freeze and i'll hear a little beep coming from my actual PC case and then everything will be back to normal, some apps will close or stay frozen tho.
I think that my RAM is the culprit but I have 16 Go
I also have a Focusrite Scarlett (audio interface for a cathodic microphone)
It munched a lot of ram on win8 but never caused any issues
I've done everything that I could for my focusrite to not eat so much RAM and my issues are less strong but still there
(Before my pc would totally shutdown during a game and now sometimes the game just freezes and close)

What can be done about this ?

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager. Find the display adapter and right click Update. Also update the network adapters.

First of all, you are posting in a hardware forum and no one [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of your exact specs; ie exact motherboard, exact processor, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.
If this is by chance a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever; post the exact brand, model# and service tag#

As stated....we need the complete system specs.

When did you do the upgrade? I would manually get the latest drivers from the devices support website.

Personally, I've experienced catastrophic upgrades where I had to do a clean install and other times I had the upgrade go perfectly. Why...who knows, it just happens. Then there's users like you that are in the in between realm. Some stuff works and other stuff doesn't.

IMO: Since this is a major OS upgrade...I would grab the MS Media Creation Tool and put the ISO on a USB drive (faster install) and do a clean install. Since you've already done the upgrade path and it's activated (it is activated) then I would start the process for a clean install.

This would mean backing up (saving) anything you need/want as it will be lost in the clean install. With your issues, I would do a clean install ASAP.
