    Windows 8 Freezes Randomly


    I find that my acer 5750G-6480 laptop on windows 8 release preview, freezes a lot. Can someone please help me with a solution? I will post the log from the windows 8 log collector here for your convenience.
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Try my solution:

    If you have no disable C-States option in the BIOS (most laptops don't) you can workaround by creating a new Custom Power Plan and set - as an advanced option - in the Processor Power Management Tab the minimum processor rate at 50-70% ( i set myself at 50%) and the maximum processor rate at the very same value! (50%-50% or 70%-70%).

    No crashes since then! Yes it takes from the processing power, but at least the system is stable.
    As i noticed here and on other forums, this is an Intel only problem.

    -------------

    I own an Acer too - model 3830G, i5 2450M, video GT540M

    Later edit: let us know if it works.

    You might want to try installing the latest drivers for your Acer 5750G from the Acer site. The auto installed Windows drivers aren't always the best ones to use.

    Ok so last Friday I bought windows 8 pro
    so ever since I had it would freeze only on the splash window or start screen I have dealt with this problem by updating drivers system check after check nothing seemed to work so I thought it was my NVidia drivers on my 560TI. well come to find out I forgot that I unlocked my dual core 555 black edition AMD 3.2GH to quad and my friend said hey I just thought of something to re lock those cores I was like ok so after almost 5 days of me cussing and wanting to throw my pc out the window and I installed windows 8 3 times full installs he remembers this and the point is if u have any cores unlocked and are having the freezing problem re lock them it fixed my computer instantly all I can say is it actually worked for me I am so relieved yet very mad at my self for not thinking of the unlocked cores but hey my pcs running like a camp now so good luck and if anyone need any help ask I did everything possible in the last 4 days to my pc
