    1) There were multiple misbehaving drivers identified in the memory dump debugging:
    a) 1 recurrent Nvidia GPU driver
    b) 1 Realtek wireless LAN driver
    c) 2 ESET AV drivers

    2) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    3) sfc /scannow
    4) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    5) chkdsk /scan
    6) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    7) Make sure that there is no over clocking during the troubleshooting process

    8) Uninstall ESET using the applicable uninstall tool:
    Uninstall ESET manually using the ESET uninstaller toolESET Knowledgebase
    Uninstallers (removal tools) for common Windows antivirus softwareESET Knowledgebase
    a) Turn on Windows defender
    b) Wait 2 weeks before reinstalling ESET so that there is sufficient time to observe the Nvidia GPU drivers
    and have a significant period of stability.
    c) If there are BSOD after re-installing ESET AV in 2 weeks then find alternative AV software.
    d) If there are no BSOD after re-installing ESET in 2 weeks then continue using the AV software.

    9) Update Rtwlanu.sys using device manager and source below

    10) Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    a) Please make sure you use the Memtest86+ version 5.01 with the link below.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    The testing is done not by time but by passes.
    The more passes the better.
    There are a significant number of false negatives if fewer than 8 passes are made.
    A false negative is a test pass when there is malfunctioning RAM.
    There is 16 GB of RAM on the computer.
    Memtest86+ version 5.01 testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
    Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing.
    Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes.
    b) When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes use a camera or smart phone camera to take a picture and post an image into the thread.

    11) If there are any BSOD after the uninstallation of ESET and updating rtwlanu please post a new zip (beta) into the thread:

    Jeezus.... I might be better off just buying a new computer at this rate. I'll try to run those tests when I get home, and report back. Thanks again.

    I also looked at the dump file and agree that there were some indicators of other drivers possibly causing the problem.

    As you have already replaced the NVidia driver I would focus on the ESET software as a possible cause first. For troubleshooting I would be inclined to remove it completely and see if it stops the BSOD events. Windows Defender will protect your PC for now.

    I hope it's as simple as that. I really do. Thanks again! I'll let you know how it goes!

    Things seemed to be going fine as it ran for nearly an hour. I went to go make a snack, and came back to another BSOD.

    The Device Manager insists that the Realtek wireless adapter already has the "best driver," and won't let me install the one from the Realtek site.

    I'm going to have to run Memtest 86+ after all, sadly. Unless you have any other suggestions I can try first?

    I keep getting an error with Memtest86+. I'm trying to create a bootable USB loader, but I keep getting an error regarding syslinux and says the drive won't be bootable. What do I do?

    Nevermind, I got it running. I just used a Linux Mint USB instead. The test is now running.

    Some of the latest bugchecks were:

    The BAD_POOL_HEADER bug check has a value of 0x00000019. This indicates that a pool header is corrupt.

    The KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE bug check has a value of 0x00000139. This bug check indicates that the kernel has detected the corruption of a critical data structure.

    The WDF_VIOLATION bug check has a value of 0x0000010D. This indicates that Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) detected that Windows found an error in a framework-based driver.

    The latest driver is most often the best driver.
    The latest version of Windows may become corrupted and in a similar fashion the latest driver may become corrupted.
    When this happens the latest driver is uninstalled.
    Most often a replacement with the latest driver produces a stable computer environment.
    At times the latest driver may need to be rolled back to find a more stable driver.

    When Memtest86+ version 5.01 has completed 8 or more passes please post an image into the thread.

    After the Memtest86+ version 5.01 testing has completed the Realtek driver can be replaced.

    In order to do this the Realtek driver is download to the desktop.

    The computer is disconnected from the internet (wireless hardware off if available) (Ethernet,cat5e, LAN is disconnected) and if necessary a router can be disconnected.

    Using device manager the driver is uninstalled and the driver on the desktop is then installed.

    Doing the memory test at this point. It's been 13 and a half hours and it's on the 3rd pass? I'm not sure.

    The memory test didn't finish, unfortunately. We are currently in the dark because of an issue with SMUD (our power utility provider). They said there's two lines to our area and one of them got knocked out, probably by a vehicle. I'm going to try the wireless driver replacement when we get the power on again. If that fails, guess I'm starting the memory test again.

    Makes me wish I had an APC unit.
