Hi, I first installed a Win8 Enterprise and got a few BSOD's so I tried reinstalling again, but a windows 8 Pro 64bit version that is currently running now, and had two BSOD's after installing it 15hrs ago. It happened while I was watching on VLC player.
Here is the crash report from "WhoCrashed" app.

crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\020914-11481-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7B040)

file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that the kernel has detected critical kernel code or data corruption.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

I just wanted to know, what measures do I need to prevent this.
Is it a faulty HDD? or a corrupted OS? Or driver issues? because I just recently bought my rig last Jan12.

It's VLC, occasionally crashes on my Win8.1, nothing you can do.

bugcheck code 0x109 with parameter # 4= 0x1 A function modification

Basically windows blocked a what it thinks is a attempt by a program to directly modify running code in the system. Apps should not be doing this. It would be considered a programming mistake or a hacking attempt that should be blocked like any virus/malware/rootkit
