Every single hour, my Windows 10 laptop completely freezes. I don't know why this keeps happening. I'm not sure if this is a power issue or not. I have the latest video and chipset drivers. New BIOS too. What can I do??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Was there a reason for upgrading the BIOS? It may be there were other underlying issues going on and they still persist. These may be causing your problems now. After a reboot, does it take less and less time for it to freeze a second or third time? IF so I would think it an overheating issue. You may have a fan that is starting to go.

    What do you mean by freezes? totally lock out and forces you hold power to reboot or just hangs for an extended period of time? It could be a hardware issue with something overheating. Check to make sure your fans are working properly. Ad for a power issue does this happen regardless if on battery or plugged into a wall outlet?

    What did you mean new bios too? Have you updated Firmware/Bios recently? Several causes may be there. Having latest video card/chipset that does not mean it can run smoothly. Is there any antivirus installed? Have you updated Windows 10 with latest one?

    One more thought, sometimes temporary files might be a cause for that. In this case, on Search bar, type as. %tmp% and press Enter key. It opens Temp folder, just select all the files/ folders and delete them. Perhaps very few files/ folders may not be deleted while the system using. Here is a good support from HP, but can apply almost all: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c03408309
