    I will try to run Killdisk this weekend. As you said though, for good measure, I downloaded CPU-Z and attached the images. I wasn't sure about the SPD tab, but I just took a screenshot of every "slot". I hope that is correct.

    Yep. Memory looks good. I would however, just for further good measure, set the VDIMM to 1.45v - standard is 1.5v and your modules are designed to run at 1.35v but you have a large amount of memory - so 1.45v will help ensure it gets the power it needs.

    ...and then it all goes back to Killdisk.

    Best of luck with it.

    After much struggle, I finally successfully ran Killdisk. I re-installed Windows 8.1 and manually updated all of the drivers that I could find to the latest ones. I also fixed the Killer Gaming LAN like you suggested. I'm not sure how to set the VDIMM though.
    I've only used the computer for a couple of hours since running Killdisk, so no blue screens yet. I'll keep you updated though. Any further suggestions in the meantime?

    It's caused by Killer wireless driver. Personally, with extreme amount of issues Killer (Qualcomm) has been having with this brand/marl, I'd ditch the adapter and get something else.

    Code:
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for athwbx.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for athwbx.sys
    Probably caused by : athwbx.sys ( athwbx+276569 )
    
    Followup: MachineOwner
    ---------
    Code:
     athwbx   athwbx.sys   Wed Nov 13 03:05:17 2013 (528332BD)
    I would disable from startup:

    Killer Network Manager c:\windows\installer\{7411487a-ff21-481e-ab53-bf27ff30e042}\networkmanager.exe_130c27d738f34c89bddf21bcfd74b56d.exe -minimize Public Common Startup

    I would prefer to swap the adapter, but I'm out of the country so it would be too difficult.
    I have Killer Network Manager disabled from startup in task manager, but if I look in msinfo32 startup programs, I can still see the file you mentioned. I found a solution in another thread to find the file and change the .exe to .BAD, so I changed the .exe after the networkmanager part to .BAD

    Is there anything else I should do?

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    As you can see, MasterChief was banned. I'll try and take over from this point on. Excuse me if I repeat anything that was said previously.

    Where did you get the instructions on disabling network manager.
    If it was one of my posts, I'd suggest that you wait and see if the system still gives problems.
    If it does, post another copy of the report collection logs and we'll move on from there.

    Thank you so much. I still have persisting crashes, so let's consider this a fresh start then. I'll try to give you a complete picture, hopefully some of this information helps:
    I recently purchased an MSI GT70 2OD with a few upgrades from a company called HIDevolution (as you can see in my first post).
    I was having crashes from the first day. When I got the computer, I immediately started downloading all of the applications I wanted and upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. As a new PC user, I had no idea that there was a recommended method to upgrade on MSI's website, or that I was supposed to create a recovery disk before any of the upgrades. I came here hoping to find a solution and MasterChief spotted a rootkit virus and recommended using Killdisk. I am not great with computers, and could never figure out how to use it properly, so instead I visited an anti-malware forum that determined, after many tests, that my computer is healthy and they can't help me beyond that.
    I returned here and (finally) successfully ran Killdisk. Even after Killdisk and a fresh install of Windows 8.1, I am still experiencing frequent crashes. MasterChief pointed to the Killer Network drivers, and I think a majority, if not all, of the crashes are caused by them. I disabled "InstallShield" from the Startup of Task Manager and "Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service V2" and "ZAtheros Bt and Wlan Coex Agent" from the System Configuration services. However, the file that MasterChief put in his last message is still visible in the Starup Programs from msinfo32. I originally tried what I said in my last post (it was a method I found from one of your posts), but I still had crashes, so I have since re-installed the KillerSuite, and the file I tampered with is back to normal.
    It may also be worth noting that I tried a method from the MSI forums to install just the naked drivers without the KillerSuite, which apparently works for some people, but I still had crashes, so I recently switched back to the latest version of the KillerSuite.

    The attachment includes all of the crashes since running Killdisk (many have happened since my last post)


    EDIT: Update- While attempting to play a game the computer crashed 3 times in an hour. I attached a new log with the latest 3 crashes.
