I've kept track of the BSOD error messages I recieved (I may have missed some)

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (ACPI.sys)
BAD_POOL_HEADER
ATTEMPTED EXECUTE OF NO EXECUTE MEMORY
KMODE EXEPTION NOT HANDLED
MEMORY MANAGEMENT

Okay so the autorepair went on for over an hour to no avail, I got my boot disk out and even that autorepair failed.

Eventually I tried opening W8 in safe mode using CMD on the disk but when I used the bcdedit /set {default} safeboot network - I would get the message "The boot configuration store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."

Eventually I tried another solution, which was to use sfc /scannow - which didn't do much.

I then tried bootrec /fixboot (from this thread's suggestion http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1704392/stupid...) and the repair managed to create a log file and I managed to log on.

Now I need your help in finding the problem - I know you will say it's probably memory but I really doubt it - I've never had a problem with RAM, I changed where the RAM was placed in the mobo and it still functioned in the BIOS and is working fine now. I suspect this may be a driver issue - how can I pinpoint what's causing this?

I'm a huge temperature freak, none of my parts overheated at the time of the crash, though I was playing a graphic intensive game.

Thank you.

I've tried a plethora of methods but am still stuck in a boot loop - I cannot do a 'windows refresh' from the bootdisk either as it says my drive is locked.
