    Hi

    Crash dumps blame "Storport.sys" ( Microsoft Storage Port Driver) as the reason behind the crashes. So the issue is definitely storage related.

    Please try the below steps and let us know the result.

    1. Update storage controller driver.

    Download and install the latest "Chipset" driver from this link - http://www2.ati.com/drivers/13-9_win7_win8_32-64_sb.exe

    2. Change power plan to "High Performance".
