    Lot's of disk errors/warnings in the event viewer logs.
    Please run chkdsk /r /f on all of your drives.
    Then, please run these free hard drive diagnostics: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

    All disks pass without errors

    The ports mentioned in the logs are my DVD drive, esata port (unused) and a removable caddy (unused)

    So, then we have to wonder if it's a mobo problem (as that's what the DVD drive, esata port, and removeable caddy all have in common).

    First step would be to update the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) drivers.
    Use those from as those from the mobo manufacturer can be outdated.

    Next step is to wait and see if the BSOD's have stopped.
    If not, please zip up and upload the contents of C:\Windows\Minidump with your next post (you may have to copy it to your desktop in order to zip it up).

    Yes I did wonder that, but surely would be other issue if mobo? such as random crashing when in use?, because once it does boot it is very stable

    Latest Intel RST already installed - v12.8.0.1016

    Just got BSOD - attached minidump

    Perhaps it is a problem with how I configured BIOS i.e. uefi/secureboot off etc - as I had to turn CSM on and set SATA to RAID not AHCI to get it to boot from my SSD drive

    It's possible that it's due to the BIOS/UEFI configuration - but the only way that I know how to test that is to set the UEFI and SecureBoot - then install 8.1 "clean" It's likely to be very frustrating - and you may just find that it doesn't fix things.

    The dump blames HDAudBus.sys again.
    Have you:
    - gotten ALL Windows Updates
    - downloaded the latest version of the Win8.1 version of HD Audio driver from the Realtek download site: Realtek
    - uninstalled the current audio drivers from the system
    - installed the latest version that you have just downloaded
    - then monitored for further BSOD's?

    If you have onboard sound - try disabling the sound in the BIOS
    If it's an add-on card, try removing the card to see if that stops the BSOD's
    This'll be the test to see if it's the sound causing the problem.

    If this doesn't fix things, then I'd have to conclude that there's a hardware problem.
    We've ruled out 3rd party drivers and we've ruled out compatibility issues - all that's left is hardware or Windows (and Windows isn't very likely).
    Where? I have no idea (other than the sound card)

    Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
    If they all pass, then start with this: Hardware Stripdown Troubleshooting

    Windows 8.1

    Decided to go for it and completely reinstall Windows 8.1 from scratch - this time I have got UEFI/Secure Boot working properly, and it is now set to AHCI in BIOS rather than RAID

    So far it seems a lot quicker and I have had no crashes or BSOD - so hopefully the BIOS settings were the cause

    For info yes all windows updates were installed and the latest 8.1 version of the realtek driver was being used

    Will see how it goes over next few days and the report back

    Windows 8.1

    been running for a few days and it now seems perfectly okay again - think all the issues were caused by incorrect installation of Windows 8.1 - I didn't supply the driver during setup so UEFI/AHCI/SecureBoot were not working correctly

    Thanks for all your help
