Desktop crashing and getting BSOD with orgin being the CCC.exe process throwing an error 0xC000000E which according to the Windows bug list is:
0xC000000E, or STATUS_NO_SUCH_DEVICE, indicates a hardware failure or an incorrect drive configuration. Check your cables and check the drive with the diagnostic utility available from your drive manufacturer. If you are using older PATA (IDE) drives, this status code can indicate an incorrect master/subordinate drive configuration.
When playing games/using fullscreen 3d apps I am not getting this crash however randomly I get screen artifacts - like segments of the screen being mangled for a 100ms or so - this is the case for apps running OpenGL, DX10 or DX11.
I have verified all I/O mother board drivers and controllers and drivers and motherboard BIOS is up to date. I have checked all of the cables and everything is connected properly as well.
