    LOTS OF BSOD's gaming...

    So over the past few days i have been having alot of BSODs....
    ranging from

    I have a Razer lycosa which is known to be troublesome.... and alot of the time i have crashed it has been because the keyboard has stopped working then i have to unplug and replug it to get it to work. Sometimes in this unplugging process the computer BSOD's. Most of my BSOD's in the past were from the keyboard but a few times recently i seem to just BSOD when playing a game randomly.

    Any help is much appreciated as this machine is only about 3 weeks old and this is driving me insane if i need to attach anything else that will help please let me know as im clueless and new to this.

    Windows 8 Pro 64bit

    Most of your mini-dumps are pointing to the driver: Lycosa.sys which is the Razer Lycosa/Razer Tarantula Keyboard Driver. Sadly there is no Windows 8 64bit version until Feb 2013 (according to the site so please update then) but you can try un-installing and then re-installing the latest Windows 7 64bit version here (no guarantee of fixing the BSOD) if you have not done so already:

    Razer Lycosa Driver v3.02

    I have found a number of drivers you should update to the Windows 8 64bit versions or un-installing/removing if un-needed:

    anodlwfx.sys - ALPHA Networks Filter Driver (2009): Driver Reference Table
    VKbms.sys - HID mini driver for USB Fx2 Device (Razer driver) (2010): Driver Reference Table
    k57nd60a.sys - Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet NDIS6.x Unified Driver (2011): Driver Reference Table
    Darusb_win7x.sys - Driver for Atheros OTUS Network Adapter (2010): darusb_win7x.sys - What is darusb_win7x.sys ?

    Please update anything you can to Windows 8 64bit versions from your manufacturers website. This should include your Broadcom Lan driver, ASMedia USB 3.0 driver, Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver, Intel Management Engine driver and anything else you feel should be updated:

    ASRock > Z77 Extreme4

    Please also make sure you have all of the Windows 8 updates until you can install no more.
