    Hm, have you checked your hardware? Could be a faulty or overheated processor or motherboard. Doesn't really sound to me like it's a software issue. Check all the hardware connections are okay. This is provided you are on a desktop.
    If you're on a laptop, well, there's not much I can suggest.

    Hahaha. Glad I could help. Next thing you should do is try the refresh and see if that helps at all. Last thing you want to do is lose your data.
    Protip: You can edit your posts.

    Here's the list for a Windows Refresh:
    Which settings will be affected?

    Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.

    Choices you made during Windows Welcome, such as computer name and user accounts, will not change.

    Your files and personalization settings will not change.

    Network, Libraries, and Windows Update settings will not change.

    Customer Experience Improvement Program settings will not change.

    Windows Error Reporting settings will not change.

    Apps from Windows Store will be kept, but all other apps will be removed.

    Here's the list for a Windows Reset:

    Which files will be affected?

    When you reset your PC, the drive will be completely reset, and all your apps and files will be removed from it. Windows 8 will be reinstalled, and you'll need to change any settings and reinstall any apps that you want to get back after resetting. If you know if any files that you don't want to lose, then you should back those files up before starting the reset.

    What if I have multiple drives?

    You can choose whether to reset all hard drives or just the one with Windows 8 installed on it. Any drive that Windows 8 doesn't recognize, such as those with non-Windows operating systems, will not be affected.
    I hope that helps.
