    Will not wake from a sleep power light just keeps flashing


    I have a lenovo twist running windows 8.1. This computer will be running run fine but will freeze then come right back. It also will not wake up from a sleep at times and the only way to get it back on is to cut all power or hold down the power button until it shuts off. It just started not being able to do some of the windows updates.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    When did you install 8.1? The reports show that your OS was installed a month before it was released.

    No further info in the reports, and the last BSOD was from Nov 2013.
    Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    Yes that is correct a buddy of mine works at a retail store and they were sent flash drives with the 8.1 update ahead of time so that they could load them with the 8.1 as soon as it was released.
