#! crashes completely after about 5 minutes

Hi.
I installed #! next to windows 8 on the same harddrive (dualboot (Grub))
I am already using #! for several months on my laptop and its running completely smoothly there but on my tower PC it simply crashes after about 5 to 10 minutes. I can login and do everykind of stuff without problems but then everything just freezes. ALT-F4 is useless.
It seems like someone else encountered the same problem ( http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=15266 ) but the advices from this thread didn't helped me. Still crashes. I also reinstalled #! without any solution. Does anyone here knows how to fix this? Thanks in advance. smile

Try disabling "Fast Startup" in Windows.

@Sessiolog:  If you've got the hardware, consider running Windows 8 in a VM.  I'm currently doing so using VMWare Player.

OK I disabled "Fast Startup" on Windows 8 and it seems to work now. Stupid me never got the idea that the problem would be caused by windows 8. Thank you!

Re: #! crashes completely after about 5 minutes

Sorry to un-[SOLVED] this thread, but the freezing #! is appearing again. Windows 8 Fastboot is still disabled.

@KrunchTime: Sorry but I don't want to use Windows 8 via VM. I need a fully integrated(is this the right term?) Windows 8.

Re: #! crashes completely after about 5 minutes

Perhaps your hard drive is failing.

There could be problems with your memory chips -- run the memtest option from the #! installation disk.

Re: #! crashes completely after about 5 minutes

can you switch to another tty when it freezes? with Ctrl-Alt-F(1-12)?

I'm not sure what you mean by fully integrated.  I can do everything using Windows 8 in a VM that I could do using it installed in a multi-boot environment...print, scan, access my Airport Extreme admin setup, etc.

I used to multi-boot Windows and Linux, but I got to the point where I hated having to leave Linux if I wanted/needed to do something in Windows, which more and more is not very often.  I spend more time keeping Windows and Windows apps updated than I do actually doing anything under Windows.
