Random BSOD on new Windows 8.1 - Mainly with ntoskrnl.exe

    The more I look at it, the more I think CPU cooling could be the problem. With so many random errors, I'm wondering whether the stock CPU fan is even good enough. Currently just after I re-applied thermal paste and re-seated the CPU and Fan, the temp is already 50C and I'm not doing anything apart from typing this message.

    Speccy is telling me that the motherboard is running at 28C, and the CPU at 50C at 1-3% usage!

    So, I think unless there is something telling in the Minidumps, I'm going to order a new CPU cooler, and see what happens.

    The last zip file you uploaded was empty. Please reupload the dumps. What CPU do you have? Did you remove all of the drivers I mentioned?

    Sorry, here are the dumps again.

    I did some cleanup, but I had a question above about drivers. See above ^

    I'm running an i7 4790K with no OC

    The CPU is fine. If you have the money, you could invest in a AM cooler, but the system has to work with the stock one too.
    Your GPU driver is the issue here.

    The  reference count of an object is illegal for the current state of the object.  
    Each time a driver uses a pointer to an object the driver calls a kernel  routine 
    to increment the reference count of the object. When the driver is  done with the 
    pointer the driver calls another kernel routine to decrement  the reference count. 
    Drivers must match calls to the increment and decrement  routines. This bugcheck 
    can occur because an object's reference count goes  to zero while there are still 
    open handles to the object, in which case the  fourth parameter indicates the number 
    of opened handles. It may also occur  when the object?s reference count drops below zero 
    whether or not there are  open handles to the object, and in that case the fourth parameter 
    contains  the actual value of the pointer references count.

    Please update your driver. If that doesn't help, follow these instructions: Nvidia - Nvlddmkm.sys error message
    Do you have any network monitor or firewall installed?

    Thanks for your help so far. I will be investing in a better cooler. In the meantime I've ramped the fan speed up to MAX in the BIOS/UEFI.

    I use GeForce experience and keep things pretty much up to date. There is a new driver today, so I'm just updating it now. I'll look at that post you've sent and report back.

    I have the regular Windows Firewall, and Windows Defender, but I don't user anti-virus or network monitoring. I did have PingPlotter installed for a recent router issue, but I uninstalled it a few days ago. I'm pretty good at keeping my system free of one-time-use software.

    I basically went through and deleted any unused software (which wasn't much since I keep my system pretty clean). I removed some older drivers, and update the Nvidia Drivers to the latest version (there were new ones out that day coincidentally), after removing them first.

    So far, there have been no BSOD in 4 days, but I'm not getting overly excited right now. Today I upgraded CPU fan to a Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 with 2 fans! A little overkill perhaps, but figured it wouldn't do me any harm.

    I've also gathered the system data again. Could you take a look at the drivers again, and see if I missed anything?

    Well, like I said it's only be 4 days. I've gone longer without a BSOD. I was just interested to know about the drivers, and if the cleanup got rid of those older drivers.

    Aaaaaaand, 5 minutes after posting this - BSOD.

    So, I think I'm going to rebuild from scratch. Should only take me an afternoon to do it. I'll tackle it tomorrow.
