    My PC is having a Windows XP- 8.1 dual boot.
    Few days ago, i was working on XP and got blue screen of death (BSOD), I switched over to windows 8.1, got BSOD again.
    The BSOD errors i am getting is probably due to RAM issue... It happens with me every six months.... Every six months usually I open up my PC, blow up dust inside CPU, remove RAM and re-insert it in the other RAM slot (my pc has 2 slots).

    This time, i have not done so yet...XP is still working to some extent (BSOD occurance in XP is less)
    Windows 8.1, apart from having frequent BSODs, has encountered a major error (since occurrence of very first BSOD)

    All the metro apps, except STORE and SETTINGS, have STOPPED WORKING.

    A small 'x' is showing up on all the tiles on start screen and all apps in app list are indicated as 'error' (SCREENSHOTS ATTACHED). None of the apps are opening


    Please help me fix this issue (i 'll fix BSOD on my own)

    I tried refreshing my PC but the problem is that when i insert windows 8 installation media, it displays error msg, that disk is not recognized. Actually i had upgraded the OS from windows 8 to 8.1, so I dont have the 8.1 installation media... Also I cant bear the pain of reinstalling windows 8 and Upgrade it to 8.1.1 !

    I have also tried running the app troubleshooter by microsoft but it didnt work.

    I dont have recovery partition since i have low (only 250 gb) hard drive with lots of data on it.

    Hey right click on any of your metro app and see if you have an option for repair ?

    No such option.. Pls help me out.
    Reinstalling apps is a solution, but it is time consuming...i have lots of apps+games including those asphalts
