    System freezes constantly after installing Windows 8.1


    Hello,

    I recently installed Windows 8.1 and am now experiencing constant system freezes. I initially thought it was related to playing Battlefield 3 but about 15 minutes ago it froze while I attempting to do some pretty light analyses in R Studio. I'm not entirely sure what you guys need to help me find the source of this error.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

    Kind regards,

    Elijah

    Hello E Allensworth and welcome to the forum. I don't game myself nor am I familiar with the Program you mentioned, but not to worry: someone will be along shorty to help you with those issues.

    Ok, I'll give it a shot.
    What were you running before 8.1..??
    Did you upgrade, or was 8.1 a clean install..??
    Did the problems exist before 8.1..??
    Are all drivers up to date..??

    Also, are you operating in metro or desktop mode..??
