    BSOD on clean install of Windows 10 Pro. Unknown Trigger, Need Help


    I have received my first BSOD after a clean installation of Windows 10 Professional only after a couple hours of leaving it idle with a video game downloading in the background (via GOG Galaxy). I'm not sure what the trigger is. This has become all to familiar after making the switch to Windows 10 from 8. I have noticed I only seem to get crashes or instability after installing any NVIDIA driver after 353.62. This clean install, I decided to install all the latest drivers for everything including my videocard (358.50), being hopeful that all the other times were a fluke. I'm stuck, I don't know what to do, I don't really want to revert to windows 8, I enjoy 10 too much.

    TL/DR: BSOD on clean install of windows 10 only after few hours. Suspect latest NVIDIA drivers. ALL Hardware(s) (temperatures too) are fine, tested ALL individually on other PC's.

    Computer Specs: Attachment 44231

    This is my Motherboard


    This is my Videocard(s)


    This is my Power Supply

    could it be software conflicts?

    How many BSODs have you received so far? There is only one dump in your logs which is blaming your nVidia driver, did you perform a clean install of your GPU driver when you updated it?

    You also state Videocard(s). Are you running a single GPU or are you in SLi?

    Good spot, some of them are pretty... non-family friendly too. Even dangerous.

    I have received only one that I'm aware of.
    I'm running two 780Ti's in SLI Configuration and the drivers were a clean install.

    There are over 25.000 links in the hosts file

    The modified host files are to block specific websites and ads. Pulled from here (http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/)

    Can you uninstall one card for testing purposes and test the system. Once you're satisfied all is good reinstate the SLi configuration.

    I can try that but, these crashes are unprovoked and unspecific so I don't know how to replicate the situation to test it anyways.

    It could just be the SLi setup in general, I seem to recall it happening before. One crash isn't a lot to work from in this case admittedly, feel free to run the system as it is until you encounter more BSODs if you like then upload new logs. It's definitely blaming your nVidia driver though.

    I'm going to try and continue using the SLI configuration, see if it happens again, and then without the SLI configuration, so there are a little more crash logs to work with.
