    my asus laptop (windows 8.1) freezes 10 min after startup.


    my laptop started freezing lately, and i really dont know what to do. i ran a sfc/scannow and there is a problem it could not fix. i think it is a problem with a drive but im not sure. i also tried to uninstall all program i didnt need.

    when it freezes i have to hold down the power button and restart it that way. once it made a blue screen of death.

    i hope somebody can help, i have an math exan on monday

    I would check for overheating due to dust buildup. Get some canned air and blow out the vents that cool the cpu. (with the laptop off). Blow in both directions. You have to be careful not make the fan in there spin too fast, so just use short bursts of air, or stick a toothpick in there to keep the fan from spinning. Also for the file corruption you can try running DISM DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    thx for the advise i will try that. though i dont think that is the problem because my computer (1 year old) is never really warm, and the vents is really quiet. but i will report back after i try it

    Backup/save everything you really want.. including internet bookmarks etc..

    then clean reinstall everything.. don't put up with freezes.. be very careful what you install..
