  1. what have you tried?
    replacing the ram?
    blowing out the dust?
    replacing TIM?
    reinstalling OS?
  2. ok not "everything" but "a few" , taking the dust out yes, i wasnt planning on replacing anything for a couple more years, and reinstalling the OS would be a big problem as i have alot of files

    I would say that re-installing Windows would be your best option. Your hardware is definitely up to the task (unless they are failing) so you technically should not have any problems. Barring hardware failure, I would say that Windows 8 be have gotten corrupted over time or the Windows Registry file is corrupted / too bloated with excess key entries.

    A clean install should take card of software related issues. If you have a lot of important data files then you should back them up either on to the D: Drive assuming your hard drive has a D: partition, or to an external hard drive. After doing so you should re-install Windows.

    After Windows has been reinstalled / updated and all your programs have been installed as well, I recommend you make an image of your C: drive so that you do not have to go through the entire process again. I Use the free version of Macrium Reflect to make images of the C: drive on my laptops and desktops. The next time you need to / want to do a fresh install of Windows and your programs you will not have to do it all from the beginning.
