      So I had a Dell tech come in and fix my Inspiron 2330 which is an all-in-one unit. He replaced the motherboard and hard drive and then I re-installed Windows 8 on it and it works like it's a brand new PC :D

      I had some hardware failure a few weeks ago and the PC was deemed absolutely useless til now. :)

      I've also (believe so) that I fixed my laptop that kept having driver errors and hard freezes requiring hard reboots (holding down the power button, etc) I was able to wipe my PC completely clean and go back to Windows 8.1 :D so i'm HOPING that I don't experience anymore lockups or problems, if I start to experience such issues, then I will have to get a new laptop but for now it seems to be a problem of the past. The only thing I noticed is with Firefox, I have problems loading youtube videos, but apparently that's a browser issue.

      Yeah, it was quite the pain. Since posting this thread, I hadn't had any lockups on my laptop and my desktop has been running smoothly as well. :D I guess Windows 8.1 wasn't so bad after all :D seems the most stable OS to use for my hardware. :)
