My Windows 10 machine (build 10041) hangs very often and I have to hard reboot every time

My Windows 10 machine (build 10041) hangs very often and I have to hard reboot every time. I have tried disabling C-state and Intel speed step in BIOS of my laptopn Model DELL PRECISION M4700.  Processor :- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3740QM CPU @ 2.70GHz

I have also tried doing clean boot with all the thrird party services disabled. But the problem is that I am not able to find out the cause behind the issue.

It has become a headache for me now.

Build 10041 was a buggy build (in my opinion). Have you tried upgrading to Build 10074 (new as of 2 weeks ago). PC Settings, Check for Updates.  Build 10074 seems to be pretty good.

Almost always a nasty and time consuming problem...
If updating Windows 10 does not help (or doesn't work):
try to disengage attached USB hardware and
checking for viruses: malwarebytes, online scanners like eset.com, etc.
System clean?
Check your eventlog (eventviewer) for errors. Often some application is hanging every time and that's often visible in the event log. If it is, try deinstalling it. If the problem persists it is probably a hardware problem.
Then try swapping ram memory first, or if you have multiple ram modules installed, remove one to see if problem still is there. If so, switch again.
If nothing works then the real 'fun' begins. First I would try an extensive hardware-scan of the main components (harddisk, motherboard, cpu, ram again) if nothing comes out:
Try reinstalling Windows 10 latest version
Still problems: could very well be the poweradaptor or even your battery: try working on power without battery (if possible).
If nothing seems to work or if you now hardware is the cause: back to the store...

Good luck!

Thank you all for giving your suggestion. I found a work around for my issue. All I did was disable Intel Speed Step and C-SATE Control in BIOS and also removed and installed the AMD fire pro display driver.

This fixed the issue with my machine and my machine did not hang any more. However, after that I also managed to uppate my Windows 10 to Build 10074.

As I said the issue with the build 10041 was resolved only after I disabled the above mentioned CPU options in BIOS and reinstalled the Display driver.
