@ergosumsaga - What's your BSOD stop code? What critical events are listed in your Event Viewer?

There's a pretty good chance that it has to do with something downstream - the HMD itself is basically a glorified display with more advanced I/O.

If you've been using the same Windows installation for 4 years and getting the same BSOD - that in and of itself could be the problem. You should be doing a clean windows install every year or so at a minimum and if you haven't done one in a while, it may fix your problem.
