BSODs recurring after a few months with few or none

Back in May I went through quite a few rounds of troubleshooting here for BSOD's that had been occurring. (Search for my previous threads to see that.) I ran memtest for 8 hours and had no errors, updated a bunch of drivers, etc. Since then I have had almost no issues... until a couple of days ago. Now it seems suddenly I am getting BSOD's very frequently - sometimes multiple times a day. There is no obvious pattern as to what triggers them. Sometimes I am using Eclipse (Java IDE). Sometimes I am reading email on Outlook. Etc. I have attached the zip file with all the dumps from the very latest BSOD. I can attach others if needed. Perhaps someone here will see an issue that I can fix. Thanks!

First off, the G750 series has had some issues with video card problems (both with overheating and with failing cards). Stay aware of this while you're troubleshooting.

This device needs to have drivers installed:
Not Available PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_119D1043&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed.
This is most likely the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface Driver. Please download and install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version available from the Asus website.

Out of 6 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

The next to the last memory dump has Driver Verifier functions in the stack text. Have you been running Driver Verifier? If so, which settings did you use? If not, this could be a clue - the involved drivers seem related to networking.

Bluetooth drivers seem to be from before the release of Win8.1 Some bluetooth devices have problems with Win8 drivers in Win8.1 (BSOD's) - please update them to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version.

As this is most likely a low-level problem, we'll try to fix any potential 3rd party driver problems while we're looking at hardware issues. This way things will go much quicker for you. Once the potential 3rd party issues are addressed, then all that's left is hardware (and Windows).

In the list of drivers below, please look for updates for those highlighted in red. The last I looked there weren't any updates available - so don't be surprised if you don't find any.

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are [DEL]struckout[/DEL] don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.
