    Solved BSOD System Service Exception

    Read here: http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/20524-windows-8-bsod-ntoskrnl-exe-7a040-3.html I had a similar problem, but a recent AMD update seems to have fixed my problem. Perhaps It's worth giving it a shot. I am no expert, just a fellow victim.

    There has not been a BSOD in the last day and a half. I think the updates fixed it. After applying the new microcode update for AMD processors, I was able to install the other updates which I had previously uninstalled and hidden. Everything seems to be working now. Thank you for your help. I...

    Thank you for that detailed guide. Before I try that, however, I found this A microcode update is available for Windows 8-based computers that use AMD processors update, which was released just a few days ago. I keep getting the blue screen with System Service Exception in - Microsoft...

    I am happy to report that removing said updates in the link I just posted above, seems to be working for the last hour or so. No BSOD yet. And I am typing this from firefoz.

    this poster here http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/20412-random-windows-8-bsods-started-today-2.html#post197281 claims that: i think this might have been the case with me too, which explains why my computer worked for weeks without any problems whatsoever.

    I updated the BIOS to v1.11 from Acer's site which was released on 13th Nov 2012, which in BIOS terms is pretty recent. Also previews of Windows 8 were already out by then, and I am pretty sure RTM was also out by then. Anyway, if this BIOS is also not compatible with windows 8, then why did it...

    That download did not work for me, and the from the looks of it, it did not work for you either. It will bother me to no end to worry about when my computer is going to crash when I have to work on a document. So I think I will indeed revert back to Windows 7, perhaps for another 6 months or so...

    Thank you for that link. It says cant recognize your OS or graphics card. Which is extremely strange. At this point I am ready to dump this Windows 8 crap, and revert back to the tried and tested Windows 7, with all software I use working, and there seems to be no problem with drivers...

    Thank you for your more in-depth response. As I mentioned earlier, I already updated the BIOS to v1.11 which is the latest from Acers website. As for the AMD graphics drivers, I think there has not been a version released after the already installed version. In fact, I cannot seem to find the...

    I spoke too soon. it just crashed on me three times in succession. the first when I was on firefox and ebay. the second time I literally just clicked the firefox icon to start after reboot. the third time when I open IE 10! I am honestly stumped at this point. I have upgraded the BIOS and ran...

    I ran the memtest86+ and the hd utility. both reported no problems. so i upgraded the BIOS to version 1.11 as you recommended. And then i rebooted the machine and ran firefox and used it for a bit. i am happy to say so far it has not BSOD-ed! :) let's see if this holds up/ how long it holds up...
