    4 Day old desktop PC, continuous blue screens


    I've had numerous blue screens since I've had it, they can be either when I start the pc and it is idle on start screen or when I am simply browsing the internet. Very inconsistent, but once it's up and running it seems to be fine, haven't had any during long sessions.

    I've done a bit of research and I've found it may be driver incompatibility? I'm not really sure where to start though and would really appreciate if someone could take a look at the attached .zip and try to help me figure out what is wrong. Thanks.

    Would really appreciate any help since it's really frustrating.
    Welcome Fred. No choice IMO. Take it back--to brick and mortar or RMA it. OK to try one more model of the same type.

    Sorry my advice is not what you wanted to hear. I don't fiddle with equipment that is bad out of the box. I do just what I advised you to do. Maybe someone else will provide a reply that you think is more helpful.

    well the reason that i posted it on here is because i researched some blue screens and thought it could be driver incompatibility, which i would have absolutely no clue how to analyse

    OK, I reported the goofy posts, and they now are gone. I hope someone else comes along to help you soon. Hang on; I think someone will.

    As ZNOD said, take it back. Problems like this now will lead to who knows problems in the future.

    Your mini-dumps seem to be pointing towards memory corruption but nothing specific in general. Since your PC is new then taking it back might be the best option however try the following first in-case it's a driver issue.

    You have drivers on your system that are out-of-date. Please update to Windows 8 64bit versions or un-install/remove these drivers if un-needed:

    inpoutx64.sys -DLL and driver for direct access to hardware ports: Driver Reference Table (please remove this, very old and probably not needed)
    SmartDefragDriver.sys - Smart Defrag: Driver Reference Table (please remove this program for testing purposes)

    Please make sure your Windows Updates are fully downloaded if you have not done so already.

    -cheers
