I think the most likely cause is a failing drive. Get the manufacturer's drive test tool and test the operating system drive.

It is possible that Windows 8.1 has operating system damage but the more or less random fault suggests hardware.

I would also run Memtest to test memory in case it might be faulty.

Update your BIOS
See asus.com to download the updater tool.

If the BIOS update does not help, then It may be due to hardware failure such as HDD, Motherboard, memory, etc.
Download UBCD and run full Hardware diagnostics.

Once when Windows is running run chkdsk on all partitions. Best if you check the HDD vendor and model and then go to official website to download there the hdd test tool.
All of the HDD vendors have such tools and they are free of charge. Download it and perform full scan of your drive. If the drive is ok - then the problem is either in BIOS or in bad cable connection.

So that is where we started here and you need to replace the hard drive.

Never run chkdsk on a failing HDD.
You may be able to recover your data if you remove the HDD and then connect it to another PC.
Use GetDataBack
