I am not really an expert on Windows 8, but typically this sort of error is the result of fault hardware. Typically it is the result of a bad video driver or bad RAM. You may want to try updating the drivers, but if this laptop is still under warranty, I recommend returning it to the store for an exchange. If there is a problem with the hardware, it is likely going to cost your hundreds of dollars to get it diagnosed and fixed.
I have lots of answers for problems with defrag, clock time, performance, system resources, problems with passwords, opening files, etc. I also probably know of a freeware/shareware application for anything you want to do: sharing Internet, firewalls, games, utilities, graphics, audio, etc.
I am the Director of Information Systems for a large law firm. I also have a home network of multiple computers and other devices.
