    I have now been through all of the thread and caught up with where you had got to with @axe0. I agree that this is a tricky one and investigation is not helped by the infrequent nature of the crashes. It looks like we can rule out the memory compression as being the problem. However, all the crashes do appear to be associated with corruption of memory addresses and so we need to figure out what is causing this.

    The investigations so far have attempted to narrow down the suspects and I can see that so far we have eliminated the RAM itself (memtest and also new RAM); the SSD (diagnostic tests and also replaced the system disk) and the drivers (Driver Verifier ran for 48h). The idea around memory compression was good but it has not helped.

    We are now left with the possibility that the motherboard is faulty. There are no tests that we can do to verifiy this other than swapping for another board but just for completeness could you please perform a stress test using Prime95 selecting the blend test.

     CPU TEST

    Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 10 Forums

    warning   Warning
    Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.
    Will I be able to use the computer during this test? Is HWiNFO an OK monitoring program?

    Also as a side note, my SSD was "bad". While it worked, it would freeze the computer occasionally, and the new SSD hasn't done that (I didn't know that was the reason until I completed the Seagate drive test).

    One other question I have relates to the slots you use for the RAM - have you explored using different slots e.g. 1 and 3 instead of 2 and 4? Sometimes we have known the motherboard slots to be faulty and this might be worth eliminating. Once you have done the Prime95 test change the RAM positions and run your system as normal to see if you still get BSODs - I realise this could take over 8 days but I will keep an eye on the thread.
    I haven't deliberately changed the RAM positions. So I will do that after the Prime95.

    The Prime95 test can be run for about 30 mins no need to keep it going for hours. It will slow your PC down so you won't be able to carry out other CPU intensive tasks.

    Any hardware monitoring program should give you a live view of the temperatures, I use HWMonitor.

    It made the 30 minutes

    This crash today occured after today's windows updates.

    I would wait and see if it settles down just in case it was a one-off. There were some unusual features that could be associated with the update process.

    I did pause updates before the BSOD, though I did update after the BSOD.

    Hello GQJ17 ,

    I see you have had 1 further crash - there was no obvious cause. It seems to happen very infrequently (monthly). Were you doing anything particular when it happens. There is some evidence you might have been trying to read/write to a USB drive?

    Also worth checking reliability history to see what may have happened in the days of the crashes, View by typing reliability history in search (next to the start menu button). Click on the days you had crashes and see if there is anything common to them.

    Another thing I noticed is that around the time of the crash your Fan Control kicked in and it uses a driver called:
    LibreHardwareMonitorLib
    Image path: \??\C:\Program Files\FanControl\LibreHardwareMonitorLib.sys
    Image name: LibreHardwareMonitorLib.sys
    Timestamp: Sat Jul 26 14:29:37 2008 (488B26C1)


    Can you try removing this if you know what software it is. It might be part of MSI afterburner which we know can trigger BSODs.
