I am using Release Preview I'm am constantly freezing 2 times or more a day now. Majorly of the time from Firefox to even watching videos. On my Asrock Ion 330 with the Consumer Preview I have no issue like this. Will try the fix and report back.

System:
Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3(using onboard Intel hd graphics 2000)
Intel Core i3-2120
Corsair Force Series (Man.Refurbished) 60GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) 285MB/s Read 275MB/s Write (CSSD-F60GB2/RF2)

fixed for me, I have been on all day without a freeze and usually it would die within 1/2 hour, especially when downloading VS2012 :)

Yeah, that works but Speccy still causes an instant freeze for me.

Not a single freeze-up yet. Seems like it's working.

Yep, no freezing issues at all (hyper-v uninstalled) using disabledynamicticks.

Finally, a hotfix for the issue via KB2727113, which should be appearing in Windows Update any time now if it hasn't already.

"On a computer that is running Windows 8 Release Preview or Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate, the system may randomly stop responding (hang) when you work on multimedia or communication activities. This problem may occur during video editing, unified communications, or other multimedia activities.

"This problem may occur because of an issue in the interaction between the state-machine driving dynamic tick transitions and the state-machine-driving clock rate changes."

So from what I have read if you applied the bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes. You need to undo it with bcdedit /set disabledynamictick no so I'll see if this doesn't freezes up again.

They won't, their telemetry data isn't showing this bug so they have no clue how widespread it is. Due to the nature of the system never reporting an actual crash, all they see is a bunch of "unexpected" reboots.


Hopefully they monitor popular forums such as these?

Hmm... Worked fine on both my systems. Laptop and Desktop. Are your symptoms the same?

Going by this thread it seems people is having less issues. Although that might be because of different workarounds.

Yeah, exact same freeze even with the update. Now I've got both Hyper-V and the Disable Tick workaround and no crash yet, but from my experience with the CP freezing, I could go a day or more before getting hit with it again.

I had that problem as well. I reran bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes then restarted. Then ran bcdedit /set disabledynamictick no and restarted. Haven't had the issue since. Worked fine on my desktop without re-enabling/disabling it.
