    BSOD Errors on new Windows 8 Install


    Hello! First time poster here and I do hope I've done this correctly! I've just installed windows 8 and am getting seemingly random BSODs. No problems before on Windows 7 so i'm hoping its just a driver issue, however i'm not sure which Driver could be causing the problem.

    I've updated Windows update a few times already with no luck.

    Thank you for taking a look!

    Hello, I reset my bios to default after doing so more reading and so far this AM no BSODs after 3 hours of use. I'll report back later but this might have solved the issue.

    I have been running fine all day, seems it was related to a bios setting which i suspect was the memory not being set to "auto".

    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

    I'm glad to hear that you've fixed the problem yourself. Please feel free to post back if the errors recur.

Hi, I've been getting multiple BSOD's a day, I haven't really noticed a direct cause, they generally happen randomly, not after performing a specific task. I was having the same problem with Win7 also, hence my reason for wiping my drives and doing a new install of Win8, but the BSOD's still...
