Ok, good. Now try and run a system file check to make sure your os is running in good order:: If you right click in the bottom left hand corner of the desktop you should be able to choose admin cmd prompt from the revealed list. Type: sfc /scannow Press enter and await results. (your still running win 8 right?) Have you considered re-installing the game too? It might be that with all the bsods some file may have become corrupted.
