    Windows 8.1 Keeps Crashing, Error 0xc0000001

    Hello really need your help as i have hit a brick wall.

    My new build with windows 8.1 installs fine but keeps crashing not even long enough to create account.

    The specs for my pc are:

    AMD A8-6600k 3.90GHz
    TeamGroup Vulcan ORANGE 8gb (2 x 4gb)
    Gigabyte F2A88XM-HD3 AMD 88X
    Kingston 120gb SSD
    Superflower 300w Power Supply

    When i first installed windows it worked for an hour or two then crashed, but now keeps crashing after minutes, and get the error code 0xc0000001 on startup.

    Heres what i have tried so far:

    Reinstalled windows 8.1 on same ssd and also tried it installed on a different HDD
    Made sure cpu was correctly seated and checked everything is correctly connected.
    Swapped RAM for another set which i know works from another computer
    Flashed Bios to latest version
    Run a cpu stress tests using UBCD which gave no errors
    even tried installing windows 7 which still does the same

    The pc never crashes in bios or when using UBCD.

    Theres nothing more i can think of to try so would really appreciate any suggestions?

    I presume you have installed the correct drivers from the device manufacturers. Have you tested for a defective component in the system? Mismatched RAM sticks can cause problems also.

    You could also do a stress test, see this site:

    I've updated the bios to the latest version, can't install any drivers because windows doesn't stay open for long enough.

    I've test the ram with memtest with no errors and also swapped the ram for another known working set, and still got the same problem.

    I have also stress tested the cpu from a bootable usb tool, and that also showed no errors.
