Hey guys, I've got a BIG problem here with my Windows 8 computer. I've had it for about a year and a month now, and it was originally running on Windows 7. It's a Dell XPS 15. Something is wrong, and I crash almost always. Not necessarily the BSOD, though that happens also with the error code Critcal_Process_Died. Otherwise I click on the desktop tile, it takes me here, then everything freezes and the cursor has the "loading" symbol(blue circle).
I've got 8 GB RAM, i7-2670QM processor, nVidia 525M.

P.S. If it helps, there's a problem with my sensor card.

Thanks scout, but that didn't work. The guy had the exact same problem... I tried resetting and refreshing my comp, and restoring, but nothing works.

I'm not really up for that... But now it's good, my laptop sometimes boots up and runs for a while. Then it seems to need a LONG cool-down and I can go back on it. For the record, I came from multiple partitions before with a hackintosh. And also, when I run the chkdsk /f /r, it seems to repair it for a bit. Does this mean that it's my HDD that's causing problems? If so, any advice on how to fix it?
