I do not get BSOD but just lately my fairly new Windows 8.1 Tablet has been freezing. I have to hold the power button for a while and re-boot. It has started to happen around the time of an MS update but I suspect more relevant is the fact that I have just installed Google Chrome and a Chromecast (which does work well). So far it has only happened when the Chromecast is in use. 

 

I also occassionally get Kernal Data Inpage Error (pdc.sp) with a message that the computer has a problem, is dealing with it and will restart automatically. However, the progress of this is stuck at 0% and it does not re-start so I have to press the power button.

 

Also, of possible relevance, is that I am very short of free storage space on my SSD despite many efforts to reduce demands on it (uninstalling apps, using a Memory Card with portable apps instead, storing on the Cloud, etc.) Despite this the Disk's free storage frequently drops to a critical level (I have gadgets which monitor it continuously).

Many thanks for your response.

 

I have followed the link and will print out the article so I can follow the procedure carefully if / when I need it --- I am hopeful the problem may  have been resolved.  I carried out a DiscScan (using Glary Utilities) which reported a couple of errors which were then  repaired on next startup.  Since then I have not experienced a freeze.  I may be being a bit over optimistic as I have not used the Chromecast a lot (if that is the cause of the problem).  I expect to do so tomorrow, so we will see.

 

I have remembered using CheckDisc quite a lot on my WXP years ago.  This is the first time I have used it on W8.1.

Could you elaborate on this, or even take a picture?

If it happens again I will try to do as you ask --- I think the issue has now cleared.
