Windows 10 stops responding to input RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a short period of time new installation of windows 10 stops responding to mouse click and keyboard input.  It continues to respond to mouse movement. After a little longer an Application not responding notice comes up for windows 10 itself.  Please help me fix this as this is a critical problem.

  • Did SFC.  No problems detected.  Removed all USB components, changed keyboard and mouse.  No dice.  Still having same problem.  Also checked SSD and disconnected extra HD's in case they had issues.  Still same.  Desperate.

  • Hi karenniemczyk,

    Could you please share some information about your machine hardware?

    For reference: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-specifications

    Besides, take a try to check the performance under clean boot:


    Also run the command below:

    Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

  • From what you describe it sounds as though something, some application, is launching when the system boots and is locking up the system. If clean boot does not eliminate the issue, I recommend opening msconfig (or task manager) and disabling startup applications.

    If the system was just upgraded to Windows 10 and you had security or anti-virus installed during the upgrade process, you might try disabling it, or removing it and reinstalling.
