Windows 10: 8 blue screens of death in one evening

    8 blue screens of death in one evening


    What a frustrating New Year's Eve . . . 8 blue screens of death in one evening. I thought I had solved my BSOD woes after doing a clean reinstall of Windows 10, but tonight they returned. I was using Corel Video Studio Pro x8.5, but I'm really not sure if that's at fault, since I think I had seen blue screens earlier before using Corel.

    The blue screens have actually stopped ever since I disabled my NVIDIA GeForce 960M graphics card. I have the latest drivers, but I suspect there's an issue with them?

    I attached what the log collector found. It seems like the zip folder is empty, so I also compressed the last 3 dmp files and uploaded them to Onedrive: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online. (I also uploaded them to this post.)

    I also used BlueScreenView (see below). The address for each blue screen crash is ntoskrnl.exe+142760 . I had Driver Verifier for the most recent blue screen; the other blue screens all said something like "kernel security check error."

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Upload a new zip, the current one from the dm log collector is empty.

    Yeah, I tried to use the tool again and the folder was still empty.

    I did zip the files and upload them to Onedrive: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    The staff at Microsoft seemed to be able to use the zipped folders: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...b-a2c6db1b7a88

     System File Check

    Please try following:
    • Open an admin command prompt
    • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
    • When it finished reboot your system
    • Open again an admin command prompt
    • Enter sfc/scannow again

    If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
    System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds

    There is a bug in the latest Nvidia driver.
    It causes the "kernel security check error" BSOD. They know it and say they are working to fix this issue.
    For now install the previous driver until Nvidia fix it.

    It doesn't look like the display drivers are causing crashes, especially since the OP states on the Microsoft forum that the laptop has fallen a little hard what could have caused many hardware problems.


    @KBurchfiel, I guess you only uploaded the minidump zip on the Microsoft forum? That is the only zip that has been correctly uploaded here.

    Hi JohanL,

    You may be right that there's an underlying RAM issue, but after uninstalling the latest NVIDIA driver (which was provided by NVIDIA, not Dell), and doing a clean install of the original NVIDIA driver that Dell provides on its product page, I've been blue-screen free. And uninstalling Service Pack 3 for Corel Videstudio Pro X8 has also made Corel far more stable. Looks like I got off lucky.

    In case you're curious, here are the minidump files:
