    I thought you already had reinstalled Windows 10?

    Nope. I was still kinda hoping I could fix it without wasting a whole day for reinstalling... :<

    I would do a reinstall a.s.a.p., better spend a day reinstalling on a stable system then spending too much time on a problem that will take a lot more time.

    That your system doesn't crash in safe mode doesn't entirely rule out the hardware.
    I lost the overview of everything, so I'll ask it. The graphics card isn't loaded in safe mode, have you already tried to remove it and see how your system runs?

    Well.. no. But I'll definitively do that.

    Would you rather have me check how it works without the graphics card first, or reinstall?

    Remove the graphics card first and check how it goes.

    I think you nailed it this time, axe0.

    without the Geforce graphics card, the system did not crash whole day (I did the usual stuff. F00bar, firefox, thunderbird and some games, of course gaming was limited by the horrible integrated graphics card).
    There was one event where I got "HD graphics driver stopped responding but was recovered"; my system would probably BSOD with Geforce card at this point. I got it later again, I'm fairly sure that those are the moments where my PC BSODs with Geforce.

    Also, I managed to successfully run Driver Verifier and login. With Graphics card connected, it crashes at startup every time with verifier on.

    I did overclock the card shortly before those issues started, but I used the official tool for that (Gigabyte OC) and it wasn't too much of an overclock to begin with. Could I possibly damaged the card? I have this card for 2,5 years and I never had issues before.

    Now, the question is, can I do anything about it other than, well, buying a new grapics card?
    I already tried cleaning out the drivers, I also installed the latest batch (361) but nothing really helps.

    Can I test the grapics card somewhat?
    I have two slots for graphic cards on my mobo, should I try moving it around?
    Is buying a new one the only thing to do at this point?

    cheers!

    This will be the final test, put the graphics card into your other slot and see if your system crashes.
    • If the system crashes = your graphics card is bad.
    • If the system does NOT crash = the slot is bad, your motherboard is causing it.


    In case of the motherboard, you can simply not use the bad slot, but it would be recommended to replace the motherboard.

    But replacing mobo means losing license on Win10 :<

    OK, I put the card to another PCI-E slot, and also moved RAM around (i noticed they weren't dual channel.. now they both sit in same color slots -could that also be the cause, that they weren't dual channeled?)

    Waiting for BSOD...:P

    I am not exactly sure how it all is with the memory, but I believe that if the memory isn't seated in the right slots (colored slots) that it'll give problems yes. Best to check that manual of your mobo for what the best slots are to use.

    Finally, the bluescreens ceased.
    I'm not sure if it's the different video card slot or the fact that RAM is now dual channeled (in slots of the same color), but something did the trick - perhaps both those things.

    axe0, thank you for your lengthy assistance. I will come back once it starts going south again, but for now, it seems more or less fixed
