Hi :) 

Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

All the best Brett :)

Sounds like, what Brett is saying,DaneMcAfee.
So i would follow his good advice.
Mind you did you just buy the laptop, I mean if it was pre installed then it must be fairly new. Or did you install windows 8 on it yourself Dane ?

If you just bought it and this is happening take it back.
Most places have a 90day window for these things to happen.
Don't monkey around with it on your own, especially if you don't know what you're doing.
