Repeatable BSOD APC_INDEX_MISMATCH in Windows 8.0

With SDK 0.5.0.1 and 0.6.0.0, I have run into an error condition which I have reproduced multiple times. It results in a blue screen of death with an APC_INDEX_MISMATCH. That's usually due to a driver issue. Steps to reproduce:

CONTROL-SHIFT-ESCAPE [or manually run task manager]
If necessary, click on "More Details" on the lower left of the window.
Click the Performance Tab
Click "Open Resource Monitor" at the bottom of the window
I usually go to the Memory tab, but that probably isn't necessary.
Click on the Image field to sort by process name.
Click on the CHECKBOX next to OVRServer_x64.exe (not the name)
Enjoy BSOD.

I may not be checking these forums. Reddit preferred if you have followups.

Thank you so much for that post! It was driving me crazy and I'd been swapping out hardware parts etc. to try to pinpoint the reason for this... I'd have never guessed the DisplayLink driver, especially since I'd only tested it once on that machine and had completely forgotten about the driver still being there.

Exact same situation here - I was about to go down that road as well.  I have a couple of 8" USB monitors for flight simming and just installed them on the same machine I was using my Rift CV1 on.  The blue screen was completely repeatable every time I made the Rift turn on by covering up the infrared sensor (thus waking up the Rift).  This is with 1.3 also.

Thanks for this thread, I too had used an ASUS USB monitor using DisplayLink drivers and uninstalling them resolved my problem. However I now have another problem in that the Oculus is not working during the setup when trying to see the "Green Lines" to adjust the focus. I'm going to get a displayport adapater to see if that will help.
