    Freezing.. Again.


    Hello!


    I had a serious problem with my computer freezing all the time when I was using the Consumer Preview. With uninstalling a few programs and updating some drivers the freezing stopped. Now, I just installed the Release Preview and the freezing has started again. I've had 3 freezes in the last 30 minutes [At this point my computer freezed, thank god this forum has an autosave feature!]. I havent installed any of the Asus drivers on my laptop yet, the only things that i have installed are nVidia driver, Chrome and Dropbox and I have also retrieved all my personal files from the Windows.old directory.

    I hope we can solve this one, thanks in advance!

    Hello TheStuf are the drivers installed for keyboard and mouse (if applicaple) You may have to install the Asus driver using Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8 and also get all Windows updates.

    Didn't the logs show anything?

    I havent installed any drivers yet other than nVidia. Not even for my touchpad. I just want to solve this before i do more damage with installing bunch of stuff


    E: Hmm this is weird. Im trying to download some drivers for my computer and my pc has already frozen several times while im in the Asus website. Something wrong with Chrome?

    in my case, chrome is the cause.
    (random freezes after few minutes of chrome running, even just in background)
    what is weird - my system logs are completely clean.

    Damn. I havent used Chrome and my computer has been running smoothly BUT when I opened The Walking Dead (game) it froze the whole computer twice. Does anybody know if there is any fix, for this and Chrome?

    Well seems like the crashes arent caused just by Chrome. Chrome is now uninstalled and i've had a few freezes this evening while using IE.

    Heres another log file, if this doesnt get solved really soon i think im just gonna give up and install Win7 because this is driving me crazy

    I already installed 7 because i got sick of the freezing. No need to worry about crashes anymore and everything works just perfect. I'll get back to 8 when a stable and reliable version is out.
