    BSOD on Windows 8.1 involving ntoskrnl.exe & nvlddmkm.sy


    I use an Alienware x51 computer with Windows 8.1 installed. I have been having blue screens for a good few months now, but they've also typically stopped for long amounts of time. They had stopped after I took the ram out and put it back in, but they've started again.
    Typically these only happen once every day, but slowly get worse until they suddenly stop and it seems like they're fixed.

    There is a lot of drivers to be updated. Please uninstall Daemon Tools and then use this utility to remove its driver. I'd recommend uninstalling programs that are associated with drivers in red for now and monitor your system for further crashes. Also, make sure you've got the latest updates from the manufacturer's website.

    MSI Afterburner driver (known BSOD issues with  Windows) Also found to be a part of MSI Live Update 5[br][br]Recently (Nov 2014)  there have been numerous instances of this driver in memory dumps. Analysis  reveals that they are scattered throughout the filesystem by the installed MSI  command utilities. For now I suggest uninstalling them all.
