    Ive gotten a few random bluescreens lately and got one just now "FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE".

    I assume and hope it is just some bug in the technical preview. How can i assure that there are no HW errors?

    That can be caused by a faulty driver, not necessarily for the Surface. In other words it could also be a peripheral. Being that you aren't stock there's no telling.

    That particular bug check is typically caused by a driver trying to write to protected memory or write to a memory address that it's already occupied with other data. The bug check typically has an address range listed to help determine the offending driver out hardware.
