Trying to Figure Out what caused the OS crash

Windows 8 crashed just recently and I wanted to figure out why (wasnt at the computer at the time so didnt see it happen). I just installed a graphics card 2 days ago and wanted to make sure the issue I have now is not being caused by it. I have noticed that the boot device led stays lit while in bios, but goes off when I exit to windows, or when I go to the EZ Flash Utility and back out of it into the bios. More info on that issue can be found here:

Im unfamiliar with how exactly to debug Windows 8 crashes, but apparently Windows has tools to download for that (I believe the name was Windbg). After grabbing that and running it here is what seems to be showing up:

^^ I don't understand all of this, but it looks like driver issues? Could someone shed more light on it?

More about figure caused crash
  1. AiCharger.sys check for the driver of the aicharger on the board maker site .
  2. Ai charger is a utility to quick charge things like phones/tablets etc. through the usb port, and I thought it was just a program? In which case I'm not really sure where the driver for it would be if it isnt part of the drivers for the usb. I do know that it's the latest version, and it's been working fine for about a month now (I didn't have anything plugged in at the time either).
