After tying everything you guys suggested, I decided to reinstall everything. Format / install OS and drivers in the correct order. It looks fine now. No more BSOD.

Your tutorials about how to launch debugging tools etc are very good. How about an article about what you check when you receive a BSOD ZIP file? That would be interesting to see how you find issues.

Many thanks

I recommend (as does JMH) clean installs but get great resistance to them. They are usually the fastest way to rid oneself of BSOD'S

Its our pleasure to help.
