I'm running Windows 8 Release Preview on the following system:
- AMD FX-8150
- 16 GB 1800 RAM
- ATI HD5850
I experience BSOD's and freezes of the whole system all the time with random frequencies. Sometimes the systems runs for 10 hours, I'm playing games and everything works fine. Than I just browse around and the system freezes. Can't move my mouse anymore, Numlock-Key doesn't work anymore and so does Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
I checked what happened during the freeze and found this:
ATI EEU Client event error
Error ID: 16388
Provider [Name] ATIeRecord
I tried to google the solution and found that installing Hyper-V should fix the problem. It didn't I also tried different drivers for my graphics card (both the 12.7 beta and the current Windows 8 beta drivers) but the freezes come back.
Today I tried creating a movie with Windows Movie Maker (yeah, I really did) and it always crashes after the saving of the movie has gone on for about 15 - 30 minutes. (Saving the whole movie should take about an hour, but I never get that far). Maybe this is a helpful hint.
This is what I tried so far:
- Installing latest drivers
- Installing Hyper-V
And please no comments like Duh, use Linux... or OMG it's a BETA!!!
I'm looking for advice, maybe someone could already fix this issue even though we're talking about a beta - or more like a release candidate here.
