Hi guys,
I've installed windows 8.1 with bootcamp, and I've never had any problems.
Then I installed battlefield 4. Anytime I'm playing some error happens, but today I got a bluescreem and my windows never came back.

The task bar doesn't stop flickering and a error (something like "DDE Server Window: explorer.exe error") comes and never leave.

I've tried a lot of things, included sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, but nothing.

Please help! Thanks.

EDIT: My system is a 12-core MacPro 2012 (MacPro5,1) with 24gb of ram.

I moved the video card to another slot and mountain lion booted up.
But I had to reinstal windows.

I'm posting in case someone is having the same problem.

Thanks!

I'm guessing you have a Mac Pro since you can move the GPUs around, but it would be beneficial to anyone searching for a similar issue to edit your first post with your system's specifications.

Had bf4 BSOD's brick a lot of systems recently regardless of being on a mac or not, nvidia or AMD, clean or old install the bugs do not descriminate. Usually a chkdsk /r via the boot DVD/USB or recovery partition gets it back to life!
