    Really weird system bug

    I built my computer, and bought the windows 8 OEM. It has been working perfect, taking into account the obvious blue screens here and there (expected with a new OS). however, just 2 hours ago, something weird has been happening over and over again. I start up my computer, log in, and everything goes just fine. i put it to sleep, and when i wake it up, things go awry. first of all, it will not accept my correct typed password. it will only accept picture pass. when i am actually in, i cannot bring up the side menu by moving my mouse into either of the corners, and i cannot bring up the start screen with the start button. when you open up explorer, the second you click on a folder/path, it brings up every single folder and file in every folder in that path up. i rebooted three times, and it is still the same. halp

    tl;dr- something has gone horribly wrong.

    First off, a new OS install of any kind should't be generating BSOD's at all. The is a sure sign of hardware incompatibility and/or drivers for said hardware. The first thing I would look at would be updating the BIOS to the latest version. The next thing to do would be to get all your drivers for your hardware from the vendors website directly and install them.

    Are there any errors showing in the device manager?
