    How old is your hardware?
    Has any hardware part ever been replaced?

    All bought new about 18 months ago. Nothing has been replaced. It runs multiple Linux distros and OS X without any issues.

    Please test your PSU, and let us know the 3.3v, 5v and 12v values according to the BIOS

    I don't have the equipment to run those hardware tests. I'm not opposed to getting it but given that the other operating systems behave fine, I'm skeptical that this is the issue (open to learning).

    Here are the values:
    +12.00V: +12.249 Stable. I haven't seen it change
    +5.00V: +5.064/+5.088 Toggling between the two
    +3.30V: +3.344/+3.360 Toggling between the two

    AFAIK Windows is a lot used for gaming where the other OS's are not, based on what I know I'm going to say that Windows is the OS that needs the most power so if other OS's are running fine it doesn't mean that the PSU is fine until tested, although I do not know what you do with each OS you have.

    Fair point, but the crashes happen regardless of whether or not I'm running games and I run graphically intense games on Linux natively, as well as on Wine with no issues. I really doubt that there is a hardware issue at play. I suspect a driver, but I'm really not sure how to even test that.

    To test drivers:


    Crash with Momentary Blue Flash but no BSOD Diagnostic Test Crash with Momentary Blue Flash but no BSOD
     DRIVER VERIFIER

    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    Okay. Did a ton of testing over the last week, but saw nothing. I decided to reinstall the OS and haven't had any issues yet (15 hours). I'm turning in and hope to see an OS that is running in the same state as before in the AM. Fingers crossed.

    No drivers issues found despite running tests for days. However, an OS reset solved the crasher. Like olden days of yore.

    I have a little more information on this issue and it has me wondering if there's a fix. I have had 0 issues since I reinstalled the OS, but as soon as I starting playing games off of my external game hard drive, the exact same issue manifested. Is there some bug with loading data from an external drive, and if so can I fix it?
