I am getting BSOD at random times, although I think I get them more when I'm watching videos on VLC (a lot of times VLC will just crash, other times it will BSOD). I also get BSOD while doing other things, as well as crashes on other apps like Firefox as well. I also recently replaced my HDD to a SSD because the HDD started giving SMART warning, however I'm still getting BSOD/app crashes.
I looked online at the BSOD error messages, and decided to try the Driver Verifier tool. When I run with only non-Microsoft drivers, nothing happen (still got one crash, but I think it was just a normal random crash). However, when I ran verifier with only Microsoft drivers, I can't boot. I will BSOD right after my Asus logo, and the error will say DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION.
Some of the BSOD crash errors I've gotten:
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION --> ntoskrnl.exe
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL --> ntoskrnl.exe
BAD_POOL_HEADER --> ntoskrnl.exe
I got driver_irql_not_less_or_equal three times in the past few days, and bad_pool_header twice.
I also have an entry on BlueScreenView that is blank under "Bug Check String", but points to driver ndis.sys.
Things I have tried:
Memtest86 (6 passes)
Replaced HDD (to SDD)
LinX (Around 70 minutes)
Heaven Benchmark (Around 40 minutes)
Swap RAM slots (this is a laptop, and I only have 1 RAM piece)
Reinstall Windows 10
Could it be:
RAM problem (Memtest did not run long enough? 0 errors so far)
Windows 10 incompatible? When I purchased this laptop 4 years ago, it came with Windows 7
DM Log Collector was giving me empty zip files, so I used SF Diagnostic Tools instead. Please let me know if it is missing any files!
