Uninstall Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) software, reboot, then run Windows Update.

If you get new BSOD's after that, post a fresh ZIP file.

Please do the following:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

I have been crashing with it turned on. Just only it doesn't pop up any BSOD.
It keeps crashing with the computer not responding and lines on the screen, I will have to force it to shut down and start back up.

I don't have any new dmp files.

It sounds like a video card issue......boot into Safe Mode, turn off Driver Verifier, then reboot as normal.

Now check for updates to the video card driver. Inspect the system and ensure it is clean and free of dust.

It happens only during gaming, use to be on everything but when I followed your first post the bsods vanished from chrome and other software to just high intense use of gpu, stressed tested the video card and it runs, so my best guess would be ati drivers (r9 280). Thanks for the help will escalate to ati forums and my video card manufacturer asus. Thanks for your help and will post if other bsods happen.

The latest .dmp is inconclusive - try installing an earlier version of the video drivers to see if that helps.

Found out after boot up of my computer its been using 84% of its memory, and I have 8 GB of ram. We searched for the processor that did this much memory and found out it was from Microsoft Security.

After that I did a memory diagnostic and got back an error. I switched the ram and reset it to a differnt slot, and did another diagnostic. It didn't get back any more errors.
And haven't got any more BSOD for 2 days.

Thank you for helping me with this problem.
