    If the BSOD's continue - please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    Wait on reinstalling the XBox USB for about a week or two. That'll make sure that the system is stable. Then, if the BSOD's recure you'll know it's the XBox USB stuff.

    A new Nvidia driver was released today and I installed it without any problems. This was in the release highlights:


    • Fixes a gamepad issue on certain Windows 8 systems.

    Should I reinstall my drivers for the pad?
