Okay, I am getting FREAKING tired of this, and I am awfully pissed at the moment (it's hard to make me this pissed, really). Win do'hs is crashing like EVERYTIME I do something important. I recently lost 4 ******ing hours of work
on this piece of crap.
Last time it said:
A device driver that tried to damage the system has been caught.
I had no time to read it all and the .sys file associated. Just found that before it restarted the system.
Also there are dozens of SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSODs lately. I don't care about the services in Windows and I am about to fire up an installation of Ubuntu or Fedora on this thing.
What I did to fix the crap:
1. Reinstall Windows from the recovery partition on my laptop (up to 5 times dammit!)
2. Reinstall loads of crap and drivers.
3. Took the system apart to check for issues.
What I am looking to do (sorted on priority):
1. Switch to Linux.
2. Use a Windows CD to reinstall.
3. Return this laptop and have ASUS fix the thing.
My system is the laptop I recently got. This is the ONLY time I bought something from the freaking Internet and it turned out to be AWFUL. I learned to NEVER do that again.
Does anybody around here know how to fix this? It's driving me to the nuts.
