Windows 8.1 Reliability (Lack of)

So I got a new Lenovo hard drive, and Lenovo recovery disks. I installed Windows 8, upgraded ALL drivers, patched Windows 8 and upgraded to Windows 8.1. 

 

Windows 8.1 is less reiiable than Windows 8 with Lenovo software leading the pack on errors, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 following up behind.

Re: Windows 8.1 Reliability (Lack of)

The only time I have used it was on a Lynx IdeaTab and I got it new with windows 8, the day after 8.1 came out. Since I had installed nothing of my own yet, I simply backed up the entire machine, in case of disaster, and put 8.1 on. I had no problems.

Re: Windows 8.1 Reliability (Lack of)

I am now getting a Hardware Errror

 

Description  A problem with your hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

Problem signature

Problem Event Name: LiveKernelEvent

Code: 117

Parameter 1: ffffe0001917f1a0

Parameter 2: fffff80002ca7c20

 

Screen quit, came back, displayed hardware error on screen and registered the error above.

 

So the motherboard is probably bad.
