    Random BSOD, gaming, or while doing nothing


    The BSOD may occur at times while I'm doing absolutely nothing (it's happened while I was asleep) and it's also occurred while I've been playing video games, over the past few weeks. I assumed it was a display driver, error went away for 2ish weeks, but it's came back harder than ever. I've ran an ssdtest as well as built in Windows memory tests, to no errors. I've recently installed ram (April 20th), upgraded power supply to 600m Corsair (May 15th), and sadly, upgraded to Win8.1 which is when the errors began, May 17th ish.

    I tried reinstalling the display drivers, yet again, but still seems to not have fixed anything. My Firefox just crashed, which usually leads to Chrome crashing, and following with a BSOD.

    Re-ran memtest86 and came up with errors in one module, the older two modules showed no errors over 50 minutes, while the "new" module showed 100k errors in just 5. Removed it from the system, guess we'll see if that does anything.
