    Persistent BSOD issues

    Over the past year, I've had recurring issues with BSOD on my laptop, which have proven beyond my abilities to deal with. I've even tried resetting my computer to no effect. Recently (starting from about mid-December, don't have a restore point predating that time) they've started to get out of hand.

    This is the laptop I'm using:

    Could someone please help?

    Edit: Some more information, the most common errors are KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Blue Screen View says ntoskrnl.exe was always a factor, with athw8x.sys, hal.dll, and dxgmms2.sys occasionally popping up. Who Crashed identifies ntkrnlmp.exe, with a couple dxgmms2.sys.

    Please do NOT switch graphics cards while troubleshooting.
    Switching between graphics cards might cause more bluescreens, because the switching feature isn't proper implemented.

    Please try to reinstall Malwarebytes to ensure a proper update for the drivers will happen:

    Please update Soluto and iTunes

    Please visit Download Drivers and Manuals | Acer Official Site for driver updates.
    I would suggest to reinstall/update every driver for Windows 10.

    Please uninstall McAfee, do NOT reinstall, use Windows Defender as alternative while troubleshooting

    Thank you for taking the time to look at my issue.

    It took some time, but I've updated all the drivers provided by the Acer site, I went and updated everything in the Device Manager Window, I made sure to get the Qualcomm and Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver, removed McAfee, updated Itunes (Soluto has been discontinued from what I was able to find), and reinstalled Malwarebytes. But if anything, there are more BSOD than ever. Did I do something wrong? Uploading the dump files from the last two days, after I finished updating everything:

    Next time provide a zip from the dm log collector.
    Some that want to help can't open a .rar.

    That a system becomes more unstable could point to hardware problems.
    Lets start with the memory

    Diagnostic Test


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Please fill in your system specs, we like to have the specs with a single scroll and click present then need to go back to the first post to find a link for it.
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely.
    How to fill in your system specs:
