I have a windows 8 computer that hangs on boot, about 2 seconds into the animation it freezes. This happens randomly and the computer will start normally after a reset. I have the minidumps but it says I am not allowed to upload.
I would greatly appreciate some help. I want to give this computer to a relative but I can't do it with these random problems. I have changed video cards, sound card, disabled unnecessary peripherals in the bios. The system is using two 80 gb IDE drives. The system ran flawlessly with windows 7.
