    BSOD Kernel Error

    I was having issues crashing with Windows 7, and they continue on Windows 10.

    Maybe with a minidump now, we can figure it out!

    I need this for school next week, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Here is the newest log, with a different error.

    It may be similar to this thread, but I do not know for sure.

    Hi derek704,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    Unfortunately, there are multiple causes for the crashes.
    First the drivers
    There are 2 driver blamed, 1 is Realtek RT640 NT Driver, updating could solve it if there are windows 10 compatible drivers available.
    0: kd> lmvm rt640x64
    start             end                 module name
    fffff800`0cc40000 fffff800`0cd19000   rt640x64 T (no symbols)          
       Loaded symbol image file: rt640x64.sys
       Image path: \SystemRoot\System32\drivers\rt640x64.sys
       Image name: rt640x64.sys
       Timestamp:        Tue May 05 18:21:03 2015 (5548EDEF)

    The 2nd driver is from Nvidia, try to disable the Nvidia Streaming Kernel Service in msconfig.
    To disable this service: press windows logo + r, type msconfig > enter, go to the tab services and search for the Nvidia Streaming Kernel Service, when you've find it uncheck it and reboot if asked.

    Second, the memory
    Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM tutorial with Memtest86+
    Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.

    Third, driver verifier
    Please read and run driver verifier.
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Some windows drivers are blamed in a few crashes, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
    In order to get the driver, we need to stress it out, done via driver verifier. If driver verifier finds a violation the pc will crash.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Thanks for the help!

    I've followed the procedure best I could. First I tried updating the RT640 NT Driver, but the only reference to the driver I found was located here. I followed the directions posted there, hopefully not a mistake.

    Next I disabled the Nvidia Streaming Kernel Service in msconfig, per your instructions.

    After that, I ran MemTest86+ for 24 hours with no errors, however I was not sure if I should run it with SMP enabled.

    Lastly, I ran driver verifier for 36 hours, with no crashes to speak of. I restarted the PC, and it ran fine for a few hours until it crashed again. I've noticed that it almost always updates Windows on the crash reboot, so I disabled automatic updates. Hopefully that does the trick, but I have a sneaky feeling that it won't. Any more advice?

    Please uninstall all the utilities from Gigabyte, those are known to cause problems.
