    Windows 8


    I bought a new ultrabook yesterday, limited version of Windows 8, was fine for an hour or two and then when I try to shutdown I get the bsod and it restarts, same error message each time. I had avast installed, realised it was messing with things, did a system recovery to before that install and since then have gone through and erased all avast folders left over. Pretty sure the first bsod came after that initial install. Only heavy software on here right now is for the SMARTboard.

    Your help is most definitely appreciated!

    Computer details:

    Asus Zenbook i5-337U, 1.70GHz
    SanDisk SSD U100 124GB
    Intel HD Graphics 4000

    Still not working, I made sure the driver was updated, and installed the various other windows updates. Recent file attached.

    I'm wondering if I should just take this baby back and wait however long it takes to get a new model (this was the last one in stock)? I thought this might be something I could resolve but it's not responding to anything various friends are suggesting I do.
