    Installed but crashing


    Hi All,

    Just today clean installed Win8. However, it keeps crashing. All of the windows will freeze but I'm still able to move the mouse and control alt delete doesn't work. I've installed all of the system updates and its still not been resolved. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Did you install the Windows 8 driver for your video card?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did. I still haven't installed the sound card driver, but all others should be done.

    Ok, are you sure it was the Windows 8 version though? What video card is it?

    Thanks again for the reply

    Yes I did install the Win8 version. The card is AMD HD 6670 and Windows was crashing before I even installed the graphics driver.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers
