I have reinstalled ROON and the issue persists.

Hi @Robert_Jenkins,

What GPU does your Core use? Is there any change if you uninstall and reinstall the graphics driver?

Have you noticed any patterns? Are there any specific actions that seem to result in the screen freezing?

Hi Dylan.

The CPU is a AMD Ryzen 5

I already had the driver disabled and is now reinstalled-No difference

Any lack of screen activity will cause freezing within a few minutes.

If the laptop goes to “sleep” it will freeze - I have disabled sleep option and am trying different combinations in power options.

I am speculating, but I think the answer is associated with the windows power options.

Thank You


OK I have changed a number of windows 10 power options and the Roon App continues to freeze.

Thank You


Hi @Robert_Jenkins,

You told us what the CPU is rather than the GPU (Graphics Processor Unit), could you share that please.

This is definitely worth doing this, but importantly go to the GPU manufacture’s site and download and install from there (don’t use the Window update as the drivers they may not be the latest ones).

Hope that helps.

I have uninstalled display driver and reinstalled from latest ACER download site.
Screen continues to freeze.

Hello @Robert_Jenkins, and thanks for the information. Is your Acer connected directly to that router via Ethernet? Are you seeing this on any other remotes? Lastly, next time this happens (and if you have reproduction steps, that would be awesome) please reply here with a timestamp (your local time) so I can enable diagnostics for your account. Thanks!

Cant send Mp4 too big .

Hello @Robert_Jenkins, thanks for the info! You mentioned having a video. Could you please upload that video here? I’d also like to obtain diagnostics from your device, you can get them by following the directions here and add them to the same folder as the video. Thanks!

Use the directions found here and send us over a set of logs using this link.
