BIOS

Some customers have reported occasionally “freezing” of J1900 based computers with Windows 10. Windows 7 does not have this problem. Older, D525 based BeFREEs, don’t have this issue. While the exact cause is unknown, it has been empirically proven that disabling C-state reporting of the CPU solves this issue. For BF10 and BF20 a BIOS update is required to show the C-State setting in the BIOS (BF22 already has the latest BIOS). Please contact support to obtain the BIOS update.
