  1. I actually been having this problem for awhile, but after trying for so long to fix it myself I need help. Im 99.99% sure it is not a hardware problem after running multiple tests. Here are the dump files any help would be appreciated.
    OS - Windows 8
    · x64
    · Windows 8
    · OEM
    · CPU - i7 4700k
    · Video Card - GTX 660
    · MotherBoard - Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3
    · Power Supply - Corsair 750w

    This is a problem with the Video Card - GTX 660 or its driver. The boot drive may also need to be checked. Is it a regular hard drive or is it an SSD?

    Its just an regular HD. I just switched out the GPU for a GTX 760 and ran driver verified and got a BSOD within a minute. Here is the dump.

    You're getting a driver verifier violation and a Nvidia driver error. Make sure you get the latest Nvidia Geforce driver from here:

    Do you have PCTools installed? If so, un-install it and see if the BSOD stops... The Nvidia driver issue is gone

    Go to "this PC" and right-click on the Windows 8 hard drive. Select Properties,Tools, Check. It may say that it found no errors, but run the check anyway. If any errors are found you will be given the option to fix them
