    Update from Windows 8 Causing my PC to Randomly Freeze?

    My Lenovo is running on Windows 8, and it freezes randomly with the times being every month or two. I looked up this problem and it said that it was something to do with after BIOS and all other drivers are updated, the HDD is defective (link here). The person giving the report also said that the problem occurred when she was running Windows 7.
    My question is: Would the same effect happen in Windows 8?

    It would be worth running Lenovo PC Doctor & calling Lenovo support with the report.
