Almost always happens during BF4 or rendering, so I replaced my PSU thinking that was it. Replaced it a couple days ago and got my first one with this new PSU. Everything is stock and all drivers are up to date.

64bit Windows 7 Premium OEM
About 5-6 months old, as is the installation

4770k
GTX780
Asus Maximus VI Hero
EVGA 850 G2

Hopefully I'm not missing anything important.

Open command prompt w/ admin privledges and enter:
SFC /scannow

let it run. Then run a full CHKDSK on your drives. All of them, but the OS drive first. If you have an extra HDD laying around, put a new install of windows onto it with full drivers and see if the issue persists. Occasionally flashing your BIOS helps.

HAL and NTOSKRNL are frequently bad OS, sometimes bad MoBo or rarely PSU.

Windows PE if you cannot boot to *safe mode with command prompt*.

Then run CHKDSK [FAILING DRIVELETTER] /x /f /r

Wait for the scan to finish - this may take some time depending on your data.

Here's what I got from running /scannow and CHKDSK.



Let me know if I missed anything or did it wrong. I'm guessing it's the OS more than anything since I had the KB2823324 security update ruin my first OS install on my 840 pro. I just did a complete wipe then and then reinstalled. Really hoping it isn't the motherboard, but I guess it'd give me a reason to satisfy my upgrade itch.

So SFC came back clean, which sadly means nothing (it's one of those tools that means nothing if it comes back clean, but means something bad if it doesn't), the same is true for Check Disk.

I would flash the BIOS (it can get corrupted and cause this issue) and then a new Windows install (to like a temp partition, or spare drive, just so you're not throwing away all the data if it doesn't actually fix anything) and see if that takes care of it. If not I'm betting for bad MoBo. No need to spend money, call ASUS and request an Advanced RMA, someitmes they'll even include a return shipping label for you if you ask - they send you the new board first, ship back the old board (don't forget to include some candy), see if that fixes it.

Well nearly 3 weeks later after my clean install and I seem to be BSOD free. I stopped playing the pile that is BF4, so that may have had something to do with it. Although I have no issues with rendering, CSGO, or encoding, so I'm thinking if it doesn't do it within the next two weeks then it had to have been the OS.
