I recently purchased a Sony Vaio Pro with i7-4500u, 8 GB memory and a 256 GB SSD. It had Windows 8 Home Premium preinstalled.
I have run it for three weeks now, and a blue screen of death has occurred six times.
It has failed with error code NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM twice and once with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. All of these errors seems to be related to different problems according to search results.
I have ran chkdsk and Windows' built in memory test and both completed without errors.
I haven't installed any 3rd party drivers. All the drivers have been there by default or updated via Sony's program called Vaio Update.
I have also run some other hard drive test provided by Sony's Vaio Care and a CPU test by Sony. All of these have passed without errors.
So, any test I have run has completed successfully without errors and my PC is still failing a lot.
Any ideas? Is there something I could try myself before sending it back to Sony and waiting for a replacement for a month?
