    I can't have the computer on overnight because of noise and heat, is this going to be a problem? Generally when I run into blue screens without Driver Verifier, they happen between 6-10 hours of the computer being on after I've been doing a bunch of gaming.
    It might give problems with booting sometimes if you shutdown.

    Just do what you normally would do.

    Okay, I finally got it to BSOD, while on Netflix and with Skype open. I had been playing several Steam and B.Net games prior to watching Netflix.

    I don't know if there is a special dump location for driver verifier, but I have attached the latest dump that Windows generated normally. Please get back to me ASAP so we can solve this once and for all!

    To note, with driver verifier it happens that sometimes no driver is being flagged, usually with a good reason which I'm trying to figure out.

    The 0x1A looks to be either a memory or hard drive problem, but I think it is a little hard to believe because there are 6 days between the previous crash.
    What happened is that the memory management tried to transfer memory to the virtual memory (page file), this went wrong (pagefault).
    Memory management attempts to handle the pagefault.
    The memory where the pagefault occured on is filled with zeros.
    There is an attempt to use the zeroed memory what causes the bluescreen.

    Even though I find it a little hard to believe that either of the memory and hard drive are causing problems, I would still like to rule them out.
    Please run below tests.

    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.

    Diagnostics Test


    Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Run following tests
    1. Short Drive Self Test
    2. Short generic
    3. Long generic

    If the short generic fails, no need for the long generic.
    Note   Note
    Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.

    Run chkdsk

    Run HDTune to
    • scan for errors, no quick scan but full scan
    • check the health,
    • benchmark.

    It may take some time, but please take the time you need to perform it properly.
    Let me know what the results are

    Thank you for responding. I will do these tests and get back to you. In the meantime, I have attached a dump of a BSOD I got this morning after turning Driver Verifier off, if it helps at all.

    What should my page file settings look like? I have "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" checked currently.

    - I ran all 3 tests with SeaTools, all passed.
    - I tried running the disk check from File Explorer but the options are a lot more limited than on Windows 7. It passed. Then I ran "chkdsk C: /f" from an elevated command prompt, but it would only let me do it on startup. It didn't error out or really tell me anything so I guess it worked.
    - I ran all the HD Tune Pro tests you wanted:

    It also BSOD'd randomly during the long Seagate test. I have the dump if you wanna see it.

    I ran Memtest and I got errors immediately. I am testing individual sticks right now and will get back to you. Thank you for suggesting that I try this step!

    Okay so I tried different stick and slot combinations, and the sticks/slots pass 8 times when only one is in at a time, but any slot combo with both sticks produces errors. Dual channel produces errors immediately on the first test, and non dual channel produces errors on the 9th test (random values).

    Do you have any idea what the exact issue could be, and/or what step I should take next?

    What are the specs of the sticks? (link would be easiest)

    Please run CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID, open it and make screenshots of the following tabs
    • CPU

    • Memory
    • SPD*
    • Graphics

    *SPD shows the details of each module, you can show the details by choosing different slots in the left upper corner.
    Please make screenshots of each module.

    Please post each screenshot in your next reply/replies.
