    Occasional freeze on shutdown, probably be fixed with a driver update or MS update.

    Check HDD / Ram to see if all is OK on a hardware level. Could be the HDD on way out. Did you tamper with Windows in any way like make a frankenbuild?

    I had a similar failure with windows 8, turned out to be a HDD.

    Have you looked at the event view logs?

    I had a LOT of freezing on Win 8.1 and went back to Win 7...

    It happened during boot, on desktop, before the lock screen when the pc is starting (99% of the freezes happen there)... Just a LOT of freezing...

    I remember that Windows 8 used to freeze a LOT on the release and it got better (still freezes, but not all the time).

    I won't stay on a OS that freezes with no reason, like 8/8.1... Windows 7 is just perfect on my machine, Ubuntu Linux works perfect too... The problem is with Win 8 and 8.1.

    Open CMD as admin and try Chkdsk /SpotFix Make sure the latest firmware for your devices are installed Bios,HDD and check Error reporting in windows to see if anything is being noted. Most likely a Driver issue (could be down to firmware/s**tty driver)

    Forgot to add try
    sfc /scannow Also

    In Windows 8/8.1 in default Windows doesn´t perform a proper shutdown, it´s this hybrid thingy instead.

    Did you try to disable that behaviour?

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
    "HiberbootEnabled"=dword:000000
    Save as REG file and import.

    Saw no use for that feature back with my HDD, now with a SSD it´s definitely superseded :D.

    In dual boot environments with older Windows versions it´s the literally PITA!

    My Windows 7 install always tried to perform a Checkdisk run with all my drives ... 4 TB, as it was confused by that totally :nono:.

    Funny you mention that. For a while, I had Windows 8 and Windows 7 installed and dual booting. When booting win 7, after shutting down win 8, win 7 thought the disk needed repair, because of an improper shutdown. After the 'repair', win 8 was totally hosed. Of course, I'm not sure this is related to OP's problem.
