    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    Driver Verifier makes drivers do extra, stressful things - so it is normal to see some slowdown when running it.
    If you had checked "Low resources simulation" it would've slowed to a crawl!

    In this case, Driver Verifier blamed the kernel (core) of the OS.
    Since you asked it to test 3rd party drivers, there's a couple of possibilities here:
    - the 3rd party driver caused a problem with the kernel, which then crashed
    - there were no problems with the 3rd party drivers - so the problem exists either in Windows drivers, or in the hardware.

    Continue to run Driver Verifier for as long as you can stand it. The more memory dumps we gather, the better our chances of solving this (I'd like to see 4 or 5 Driver Verifier enabled memory dumps if possible).

    To check Windows drivers, please try this:
    Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after each one:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    If the problem is fixable, you can use this command to repair it (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after typing it:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    From this article: Repair a Windows Image

    You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.
    For hardware, let's start with these diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    From the Admin Event Log:
    - lot's of firmware errors for the system. Please ensure that you have the latest version of the UEFI/BIOS firmware for your system.
    - ensure that all the Intel programs on the system are fully updated. I tend to suspect the Intel storage drivers (just a hunch) so updating them should also be done.

    Windows 8.1

    Just an update: I did all of the steps to fix the Windows drivers, and I successfully updated the BIOS to the latest version. There was also a new Killer Network driver available for my computer model from MSI's website- I downloaded this, but put everything back the way I had the old one following your instructions.
    I haven't had the chance to run any hardware diagnostics from your link yet.

    In an attempt to stack up crashes with driver verifier, I turned it on today and left it running while I was away with continuously looping videos on multiple google chrome tabs. To my surprise, when I came back 12 hours later, the videos were still playing and the computer had not had a BSOD. The bad news is that I'm having trouble accumulating crashes on driver verifier, but that also may be the best news. At least, this is the most stable the computer has been.

    This is good news. I hope that the BSOD's are finished.
    But, if they're not, we'll be here if needed.
