Windows 8.1 BSOD right after install?
Hey there, I just built a computer and installed windows 8.1. When I get to the desktop (btw just installed so new drivers or anything) I can move around but there's actually considerable amount of lag when I open up anything (windows menu, file folders) and I installed the WLAN driver only to enter internet explorer and be faced with huge lag followed by BSOD. What should I do?

Note: I encountered an error but solved it (here's a video with the error and solution)

First id like to congrats you for your new computer build =)

You should really run memory diagnostics to check for some errors first
