Hi. This is the third time I'm writing this post because of those God damn freezes (I'm using my friend's laptop this time, cause I really don't feel like writing the post for the 4th time).
I upgraded from Win 7 Home Premium to Win 8 Pro 2 days ago. Everything was fine, till it started freezing for no apparent reason. Yesterday it went for a couple of hours without freezing, but today the maximum time without having to restart it has been around 10 minutes. I'm writing this for the third time, because it froze in like 2 mins after restarting it.
It's getting really annoying, since I don't know what causes it. People said it's Chrome's fault, but my laptop froze a few times without Chrome being on. By freezing I mean the Cursor freezes and then disappears and my screen stays the same no matter what I do. Not even the Caps Lock light functions when I press Caps Lock, everything is dead.
I deleted old software that I wasn't using anyway, I updated my Nvidia Geforce 9400M G driver, I uninstalled my antivirus... I tried all the stuff people suggested (the ones that were having similar issues with those Preview versions) and nothing worked.
I knew it would have some issues being so new, but not like this. I literally can't use my laptop cause no matter what I'm doing it's bound to freeze and I have to press Power Button to force shut down and then start everything over again.
That's a photo of my frozen screen when I was trying to write this post for the second time.
As I was editing this, my laptop froze again, after 10 minutes of being on. It only had Skype and Task Manager running.
Please help me if you can. If you need any other information, let me know. Thanks.
Hope I did the right thing there with W8
