    BSOD during general use in 8.1


    This has been happening for a for at least 4 months but its been getting worse as time goes on. I just bought a new SSD and reinstalled Windows 8.1 Pro today, and I've already had 2 BSOD's.

    I watch twitch.tv a lot during the day and I always thought it was a chrome/flash problem but its getting out of hand now.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Vengenz & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I am extremely sorry for the delayed response. I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-

    According to the dump files, there is a problem in Writing data to the L0 cache of the processor. I would suggest you to run the below the processor diagnostics to make sure that the system is not getting overheated -

    Prime95 download site:
    GIMPS - Free Prime95 software downloads - PrimeNet
    Prime95 Setup:
    - extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
    - double click on the executable file
    - select "Just stress testing"
    - select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
    - "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
    The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
    Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
    Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85șC. If it does, then you probably have a CPU cooling problem.
    - CPU temps exceeding 60șC can cause errors in Prime95. Fix the cooling solution first, then run Prime95 again.
    This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
    The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
    NOTE: Errors should be considered when:
    - the system BSOD's during Prime95
    - the system freezes during Prime95 (this is different than the extreme slowness caused by the program using all your RAM and CPU)
    - the Prime95 program crashes
    - the Prime95 program shows errors in it's display
    - there are errors in the Prime95 results file
    More details on the use of this test: Torture test your CPU with Prime95
    Also, run the below Intel Burn Test and post back the temperatures of your system while under load and idle -
    IntelBurnTest - The new stress-testing program

    Post back the temperatures and errors (if any).


    Let me know how it goes ^_^
