    Random BSOD


    Sorry for the title.

    I have attached the zip file with all the details requested on the BSOD sticky at the top. It mainly happens when playing games, it'll either just reboot the whole system, or BSOD with the new windows 8 'unhappy smiley face'.

    Any help would be great,

    Your mini-dump appears to be pointing towards the executable files: Steam.exe and GameOverlayUI.exe both of which appear to belong to the Steam Game Client. I would advise un-installing this client via control panel and then installing the latest version or not installing at all if not needed:

    Steam, The Ultimate Online Game Platform

    Any game that you run through this you might consider updating and/or repairing if possible for testing purposes.

    I have found a large number of drivers you should either update or un-install/remove if un-needed:

    iaStor.sys - Intel Storage Drivers: Driver Reference Table
    SI3132.sys - Silicon Image driver: Driver Reference Table
    SiWinAcc.sys - Silicon Image driver - comes with package for the SIxxxx drivers: Driver Reference Table
    SiRemFil.sys - Silicon Image driver: Driver Reference Table
    hamachi.sys - LogMeIn Hamachi Virtual network interface driver: Driver Reference Table
    dump_iaStor.sys - driver created to provide disk access during crash dump file generation: Driver Reference Table
    k57nd60a.sys - Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet NDIS6.x Unified Driver: Driver Reference Table
    Edge7x64.sys - Bigfoot Networks Killer Xeno NDIS-EDGE Miniport Driver (this card is from VisionTek): Driver Reference Table
    Xeno7x64.sys - Bigfoot Networks Killer Xeno PCI-E Gaming Adapter (this card is from VisionTek): Driver Reference Table
    RzSynapse.sys - Razer Synapse Engine/Razer Naga: Driver Reference Table
    rzudd.sys - Razer Rzudd Engine Driver: Driver Reference Table
    RTKVHD64.sys - Realtek High Definition Audio Function Driver: Driver Reference Table
    CM10864.sys - C-Media sound driver: Driver Reference Table
    TuneUpUtilitiesDriver64.sys - TuneUpUtilitiesDrv: Driver Reference Table
    WinRing0x64.sys - many different programs that center around the using of the WinRing libraries (RealTemp, Corsair Link2 (known BSOD issues w/Win8), etc): Driver Reference Table

    Please also ensure you have the latest Windows 8 updates until you can download no more.

    You might also try updating your chipset and other drivers for your computer via the manufacturers website, your PC seems to be an Alienware Aurora and I'm not sure of the exact website, maybe this one will help if you chose to "analyze system for updates":
