    If you'd like, we can take a fresh look at the system if you run the tool from the BSOD subforum again and post results here.

    Alternatively I could try upgrading to 8.1 but from what I understand people are having A LOT MORE trouble with that.
    SOME are having trouble with 8.1.

    I'm not.I upgraded to 8.1 Pro wmc from the store & only had to upgrade a few drivers.

    When I upgraded I lost no files or programs.
    I have a Microsoft account.

    If you know what you are doing, you won't have a lot of problems.

    Also, once you get things running good, use Macrium Reflect to make a backup image of all the needed drives to restore Windows.

    Make sure you get the right version--32 or 64 bit.

    Oooh wait, no. Halo man I got a question. In my other thread about the BSODS (which seem to have stopped by the way) you said that my intel storage driver was out of date and to go to the website to upgrade them. I went to their website and well I ran a thing to check my drivers and nothing. No links to updates. I think I may as well update what I know needs updating before I post a list of out of date junk.

    At any rate here is the old DMP file from the other thread if that's helpful at all.



    Oh and David...

    If you know what you are doing, you won't have a lot of problems.
    So basically I will have HEAPS of problems.


    EDIT: the attachment does not appear to be showing. So here is a link to the thread I guess SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION and a whole host of others.

    That made me smile.

    I hope you will not have heaps of problems.

    Yeah I'm mighty persistent with my posting but I can't just let this go.

    Okay so... I've been doing a HEAP of searching. And two big contenders for solving the issue are A create a custom start button and B reset and update the BIOS.

    Now the idea of messing around with the BIOS for me is TERRIFYING and I don't know how to do it in the first place. So that leaves option A.

    We'll see how this goes. I will post results later.

    Okay, thats interesting. Using this link Shut Down Shortcut - Create in Windows 8 I am able to shut down the computer fine. Which makes me wonder what the problem is when I shut down in the traditional way. I also turned fast startup back ON as it was not doing me any benefit being off.

    So what ever is in the shut down command is able to bypass some process that is running when I shut it down through the menu.
