Are you folding when it crashes? My system has BSOD multiple times usually while folding, although has BSOD a couple times while the folding process was paused. It's also BSOD a couple time after I set my clocks back to stock, again while folding. When it BSOD it give me an Bad Pool Header error, which I believe is usually a driver issue. Since all my drivers are up to date I'm not sure what to do besides waiting for driver updates.

It's a really stupid bug. the built-in file explorer loads EXIF data from pictures, this includes camera orientation, then automatically flips images so that are right side up.

The problem is when you upload an image, this data isn't used so you end up with sideways or upside-down images.

The easiest solution I found was to open the image in Paint, Select All, Copy, Create a new image in Paint, Paste, Rotate/Flip, and Save as a new file.

I've noticed that Win8 randomly loses sync with my monitors after waking them from sleep. Only one monitor will wake and the resolution will be huge. Have to right click on the desktop to reset to my dual monitor and resolution..

I believe in my case it was Avira Antivirus causing my BSODs, but can't be sure yet since I just removed Avira.

Best way to check is to save your oc settings, put it back to stock and see whether its win8 or whether its your oc that's unstable if it doesn't crash when you have no oc then you get your answer (more or less)

This has happened to me as well. The evaluation copy I was running was flawless. The retail version of Win 8 Pro is indeed buggy. Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot!

Navigating in Windows 8 on the desktop seems more confusing than in Windows 7. Aero glass made the entire OS feel more open and my brain cannot get use to the flatness that is 8. Microsoft also forgot to add a shadow or highlight behind the title bar text. I like using a darker gray for my color scheme but the damn text is too hard to see because it's black.


I'm also experiencing the issue of my monitor not waking up when coming out of sleep. Sometimes it will wake up but then it just shows the cursor on a black background.
