Random freezing in Windows 8.1

I recently built a new PC and installed Windows 8.1 64-bit on it. However, I am plagued with random hard freezes, after which nothing responds and the only way to continue is to press the reset button on the case. The freezes seem to happen randomly in different circumstances, among others while watching videos in VLC, browsing in Chrome, reading e-mail in Thunderbird, having Steam library window open, using MS Word, etc. The system also generates a bunch of errors frequently. Below are errors generated just before the latest freeze:

  1. My best guess is re install windows. It sounds like a software issue. Good luck :)
  2. Best answer
    I'm having a similar issue. I built a new computer months ago and installed 8.1. It's working like a well oiled machine until last week when it suddenly locks up - anywhere from 30mins to an hour after booting up. It boots up fine but no matter what it locks up within the 30min to an hour time frame. Even if I don't log in and leave it at the log in prompt. I have tried looking at the event logs but there's nothing there with the time stamp of the crashes.

    Also the windows CD says it can't perform a repair. I'm trying to avoid a reformat and reinstall, at least until I'm sure it's the OS and not the SSD drive. I've run a disk check while inside of windows on the SSD and it return no errors. So for now I'm scratching my head and googling with no luck.
  3. I would still go for the Win reinstall.

    Probably what it will come too. :(
  5. I hope you can get this fixed, it's probably just the OS. Good luck :)
  6. I have the same issue. I just did a reinstall of windows and boom same thing. Any one else have this issue?
  7. Same problem I am having I have reinstalled windows 3 times. Still nothing
  8. It might be a problem with network card. Do you use TP-Link? - i'm asking because many cards of this manufacturer is making problems with Win 8 and 8.1

    I am using a tp-link network card and I have the same problem it is very possible that this is causing the problem.
