If you're able to get into Windows, please let me know. There's a few things we can check before we determine what the issue is for sure.

Common causes: drivers, defective RAM and failed hard drive.

If not..

It's possible you have a defective hard drive or RAM.

Do you have data you need to recover off that drive? If so I would do it now.

If your laptop is still under the retailer return period I suggest contacting the place of purchase and swapping the unit.

If not, please contact ASUS for RMA.

If it is a hard drive, there's nothing you can really do to prevent failure like that. The only thing you can do is maintain regular backups of important data.

If everyone did that instead of asking for help at a forum, then there would be no where for you to troll.

This type of crash is usually caused by a driver bug. You can isolate the buggy driver fairly easily by turning on Driver Verifier Special Pool option for all drivers and just using the system that way for a while. Once you find the culprit, find out if the vendor has an update available. If not, uninstall the product that is using the driver if it is not critical to the operation of the system. Don't forget to disable Driver Verifier in the end because it reduces overall system performance.
