My daughter has a 3 months old ASUSx55c-si30202m tht is runnign windows 8.  It was exhibiting some odd issues, so we did a factory reset which seems to have aleviated the issue for the most part but it still doesrandomly freeze, it seems to freeze now, only when she is playing world of warcraft.  I suspect a video driver issue.  Whe  she installed WOW the client instructed her to download and isntall the newest VIA driver ( Intel HD 3000 graphics). 

I did a little cheicng and it seems that ASUS installs their own video driver and changin it may create issues.


Is there and error log that can be examoned to determone what is causing the freezes?

Here is the official minimum system requirement to play World of Warcraft  :




According to the developers you should have at least 256MB NVidia or ATI card to play it on bare minimum frame rate.  NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT,ATI™ Radeon HD 4830 (512 MB) or better is required to play it with good frame rate.


Intel HD 3000 is no ware near to the minimum requirement. I am sorry to say it but i don't think you can play WOW in that laptop.
