    I started getting freeze up last week. I have used CP since it was released and have loaded all my programs and they all worked great until last week. Since I now know that all my programs work in Windows 8 and Spider Solitaire is not available I deleted Windows 8 from my dual-boot and will wait for the next release (RC in May?) then give it a go. I really like Windows 8 and looking forward to the next release.

    1) Please uninstall Uniblue Driver Scanner.

    2) Install the Windows 7 64-bit NVIDIA inf update driver Version V5.1.2600.171 in the Chipset section, from this link:

    ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS K50IE

    3) Reboot.

    That should do some good.

    I tried this driver yesterday, but the result was the same:

    With Windows 7 64-bit NVIDIA inf update driver Version V5.1.2600.170 installation complete, but I don't think this can help.

    Open device manager and manually update the driver that shows a problem. Point it inside C:\NVIDIA to the correct folder for the driver needed, while doing so.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview Freezes Randomly in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview some time ago. It ran fine for some time but now freezes randomly. I am attaching the log collected by the Windows 8 Log Collector tool. If you could help me, would be a great help. Thank you.
My sound used to work in the consumer preview fine but since I upgraded to the Release Preview I need the volume max and headphones in to hear anything. Any help appreciated. If more info is needed just ask.
