    Windows 8.1


    So, i got my computer working again. Here is how i did.

    I bought an SSD, installed it into my computer with a clean version of windows on it, everything started working.
    Now, you might not necessarly have to buy a new harddisk, but what i would recomend, would be to make a full erase of the harddisk you already have, and then reinstall windows.

    Perhaps, if possible, it would help to uninstall any graphic drivers, and then reinstall an old version, and start working your way through, until fully updated again.

    *Fix may cost money

    For the curiuos, the SSD i bought was Samsungs 840 PRO edition with 256 gb on it.
