I am trying to get to the root of a constant crash with Windows 8.1 but am feeling fairly helpless and could use some guidance.
After running for a while (doesn't seem to be a set time of any sort, but longer than a half hour, at least), Windows locks up and then reboots. It can happen while I'm on Chrome or when I'm just away from the computer (I'll hear it reboot from the next room). I usually have a website open, so I don't know if it's related to that or not.
If I catch it rebooting, there is often purple artifacting on the screen beforehand, which makes me wonder about my NVidia GeForce drivers (340.43).
I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro on an Asus G50V laptop with 8GB of RAM and an Intel Core Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.66Ghz/2.27Ghz. I'm sure there's more info needed, so let me know.
I used to know what I was doing, but I can't even figure out which error in the Event Viewer is causing the crash.
Can someone guide me through a way to fix my issue?
Thank you in advance!
