    Driver related questions


    I want to ask some questions about drivers in windows 8 . Right now i am using Windows 7 ultimate because the drivers are working good , everything is working good . I have had installed windows 8 two times until now and i have faced some BSODs everytime . Since i am using windows 7 now i have done all of the possible tests ( memory,cpu etc ) for my pc and everything is working good , no errors or something like that . So i am thinking that my problems with windows 8 have to be driver related . I don't understand why do i keep getting BSODs...i have windows 8 drivers for my laptop on the manufacturer's website of course . Should i wait a little bit to get some updates on those drivers? Should i install windows 8 again and when i start to get BSODs (after a month or two ) to send you the Memory Dump file and maybe find the problem ? Should i stick to windows 7 untill windows 8 gets more support ? Thanks !

    Since you haven't included you specs in "My System Specs" in the CP Section then they would appear in the lower left hand corner of your posting it is hard to determine what could be causing the BSOD.

    What you might do if you have enough memory is to setup a Virtual Machine (VM) using one of the Virtual Machine programs available on the web (Virtual Box (Free), VMWare Workstation (cost), or VM Player (Free)) to see if it something you really want to use.

    We can help you more if you post your specs. . .Thank You. . .

I have been getting some random BSOD errors the past few weeks. Most of them are related to the nvlddmkm.sys driver, according to BlueScreenView. They tend to happen if I am using Skype, playing any game, or just using Chrome. Also, they happen 8 out of 10 times if I restart, or log off of my user...
I just bought a Razer Carcharius headset a few days ago. When I plugged it in the first time, everything functioned fine. Now, Skype isn't picking up my microphone. I don't see the headset in Device Manager or Control Panel's Sound settings either. This seemed to happen after I downloaded Razer...
