    Well, I seem to have bricked my BIOS, so I'm working on that now.

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview


    So it's 2 months later. In that time, I bricked my BIOS (as mentioned above), bought a new BIOS chip, got a replacement for the new one since it didn't work, and got my system running. There has only been one GW2 beta event since then, and I didn't have time to play in it, but I'm playing in the stress test now, so I'm hitting the DPC_WATCHDOG_EXCEPTIOn for the first time (that I remember) since then.

    Attached is the new dump.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    You had a series of memory dumps on 8/9 June, and then another series on 27 June.
    I'm running all of them - but there may be some differences between the 2 sets since there's a 3 week gap between BSOD's.

    Win7 doesn't like wireless USB devices - so I have to presume that the same thing is true of Win8.
    Test by uninstalling the software and removing the device from your system.
    I'd suggest either using a wireless card that plugs into your motherboard, or a very long ethernet cable (this is only temporary - until you either prove or rule out a problem with the wireless USB device).

    It looks like you have at least 5 hard drives. What's the make, model, and wattage of your Power Supply?

    Any particular reason that you haven't updated to the Windows 8 Release Preview yet?

    Lot's and lot's of STOP 0x117 errors (video) in June (in the WER section of MSINFO32). These are very similiar to STOP 0x116 errors and are troubleshot (?troubleshooted?) in the same way. Here's instructions for Win7 - Win8 should be the same: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting - Windows 7 Forums

    Memory dump errors primarily point to video issues. Most important (IMO) is an upgrade to the Release Preview. Next most important is installing the latest version of the nVidia Windows 8 drivers for you video card: World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies | NVIDIA

    If it still BSOD's after that, then try the STOP 0x116 troubleshooter listed above.

    If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

    The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

    - Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html
    - Info on how to troubleshoot BSOD's (DRAFT): http://www.carrona.org/userbsod.html
    - How I do it: http://www.carrona.org/howidoit.html

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview


    What wireless USB device do you see here? I had a wireless PCI card, but I don't think I've installed drivers for it since I installed Windows 8. I also don't see it in my device manager. It's possible (and, in fact, quite probable) that I managed to copy a dll from it over to my current setup at some point, but I don't know which that would be.

    I have this power supply: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series RS800-80GAD3-US 800W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
    Specifically, cooler master silent pro gold series RS800-80GAD3-US 800W.


    EDIT: Woops. Looked at a hardware list for a different computer. I have this: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

    I actually just installed the latest driver version (302.80) sometime between the recent BSODs. I also had exactly this issue when I had Windows 7, so it is not solely an issue on 8. I haven't installed the release preview because I was unaware it was publicly released.

    I ran the small test set on the video memory stress test you linked in the sevenforums thread. It found 0 errors. I'm testing with the full now. I suspect this will take a while.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    I may have made a mistake in my lookup. But the network adapter list didn't have a PnP ID for the wireless device.
    It was a RangeMax Next Wireless-N Notebook Adapter - and a more detailed search shows it's most likely a PCI card.
    My mistake! Thanks for catching it (and my cautions don't apply to it).

    An 80+ 750 watt PSU is probably plenty. You may want to disconnect as many devices as you can to see if that decreases the frequency of the BSOD's. If it does, you may have an issue with the PSU.


    As there were lot's of video issues with the Consumer Preview - and not nearly as many with the Release Preview - I'd suggest installing that. It's available here: Download Windows 8 Release Preview

    BUT...As you had these issues with Win7 also - I'd have to wonder about the video card.
    The definitive test is to try another video card. If you don't have a spare, try purchasing one from a store that will allow you to return it if it's not needed.
