Windows 8 freezez and then restarts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been using windows 8 for a month now (Windows 8 Pro) and everything worked well. A week ago it started to freeze seconds after a bootup and then restarts. I can only get it to work after several cycles of boot-freeze-restart. At first i thought it was caused by my windows gadgets or by Start is back but after uninstalling them nothing changed so i reinstalled them.

Any ideas ?

How stable is your PC? Any new OC's, or new drivers installed recently?

My Pc is very stable. I have no overclocking on either the cpu or gpu, no new drivers, nor have i experience any freezes or crashes on windows 7.

That's my point 320.xx are known to be buggy, try reverting back to 314.20 / 306.xx
