Please help! I’m having multiple Blue Screen of Death messages. Here are some that I’m getting in Windows 8:

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
CRITICAL_STRUCUTURE_CORRUPTION
NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_INTERNAL
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

On average, the computer goes through 2-3 BSODs and restarts before it becomes stable and usable after I initially turn it on. Then it usually runs okay, except for occasional BSOD crashes.

I had the BSOD problem with Windows 7 Ultimate, when I first started using this computer last year, though not as often. After updating to Windows 8 Pro, it has become much more frequent.

Windows 7 Ultimate was a Developer Edition DVD that I purchased from Craigslist. I had since upgraded to Windows 8 Pro, purchased from Microsoft.

Could it be that the Developer Edition of Windows 7 was corrupt and is still affecting the upgraded Windows 8? Could it be a hardware problem? Or maybe software and hardware?

I installed Linux last week and so far, I haven’t had any crashes. I ran a test on my 4 sticks of RAM which passed. Moreover, I couldn’t detect any viruses.

From Day 1, I’ve had the BSOD with this custom PC.

Specs:
Intel i7 2600K (have not overclocked it)
Asus P8-Z68V Pro (Asus EFI Bios ver. 0706)
Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB 1600MHz
2 x Samsung Ecodrive 1.5TB
2 x Radeon HD 6850 1GB (Crossfire)
Crucial SSD m4 256GB
Antec High Current Gamer 900W
Asus Blu-Ray burner 12X Lite BW-12B1ST
Sony memory card reader MRW620
Asus wireless adapter PCE-N15
Corsair H100 liquid cooler
NZXT SENTRY 2 fan controller

Seems legal. The DVD is labeled professionally and not from a home printer.

Bad ram can cause multiple BSSOD errors, try running memtest.

Next rule out the hdd by running the manufactures diagnostics. Its possible you may need to try a clean install of win 8, many times when upgrading from a troubled OS the upgrade has issues, which is hy clean installs are the best option when switching OS's.

I think I'll purchase a full version of Windows 8 and try for the clean install, since Windows 7 gave me the same problems. Thanks for the tip.
