    May I ask where you got the 8.0 install media you used to install 8.0? If you answered this already I missed it.

    Have you checked the SHA1 hash of your download to verify it hasn't been tampered with? With all the issues you have I would suspect your ISO is corrupt or been tampered with.

    Well something is going on. I'm beginning to think you may have a hardware issue. How old is this PC?

    Less than a year old and bad RAM already? I see you downloaded some drivers, did that help things?

    Nothing. Bad RAM was from the factory. Replaced a few weeks after I bought it.

    At this point you might want to think about going back to what works, Windows 8.0. Did the drivers you downloaded state they were for 8.1?

I'm currently using Win 7-64bit, 2X2GB, 180GB SSD, AMD 945 quad core, 880G motherboard. Think of getting the Win 8 upgrade, new 4 (4170) or 6 core AMD cpu, 970 motherboard. Would Win 8 make it worth it to get a 6 core cpu, or should I just get a faster 4 core processor (4170)?
