I would never recommend or perform for myself an upgrade install. Let me know what happens after a clean install. If that doesn't help then I would consider sticking with Win7. So far I cannot recommend Windows 8 or even 10, and am recommending all of my clients and customers stay with Win7 or even XP in some cases. Scott.
Hi Scott I did a clean install and no more BSOD. I've always thought upgrading was a flawed idea to begin with. This was the first and last time for that. I only did it because I was worried about activation problems. One other thing I did not have to track down one driver a clean slate in Device Manager. Thanks again for your time. warm regards, dak
