Windows 10: ntoskrln.exe BSoD a few else.

    ntoskrln.exe BSoD and few else.

    Hi there,

    So I've been getting random bsods since upgrading to Win 10. It's totally random, sometimes everything works perfectly for 2 weeks and then I'm getting few BSoDs within few days, sometimes I got them while playing games and sometimes I was afk (without anything running) and when I came back everything was frozen. I tried nearly everything I knew myself, upgrading all drivers including chipset etc, clean installing win 10 again after purchasing SSD and removing the OC on CPU.
    I ran driver verifier but it kept triggering bsod on nearly each app I checked (avast which I removed in safemode, speedfan, MSI afterburner etc).

    Usually I don't even get a bsod, it's just a massive freeze till I restart PC manually. When I finally got a bsod few of them showed the WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT error though everytime that happened bsod was stuck on 100% and never created a dumpfile. All I've got are the 3 dumps attached in zip and bsodviewer showed ntoskrln.exe as one of the bugcheck causes.

    I'll run memtest tonight just in case. Hope somebody will have an idea about what's going on.

    Grainward Nvidia GTX560ti
    2x4GB Kingston 1600Mhz
    Asrock P67 Pro3
    Samsung SSD 850EVO 250GB

    Everything running on stock frequency with max ~70C temps on 100% load.

    Most recent dump shows:

    2nd and 3rd oldest show:

    MODULE_NAME: Unknown_Module
    IMAGE_NAME: Unknown_Image

    which is no help at all.

    The mouse driver is old, 2009. Look for an updated driver or replace the mouse and see if that resolves the problem.

    Problem was there before I installed the mouse driver (like ~2 weeks ago) so it can't be the mouse.

    The mouse driver is from 2009, it is suggested that you update it. FYI, it is the cause of the last crash present in the zip.

    The other crashes are 0x101, these crashes are mostly caused by BIOS problems, drivers (drivers is generic as a cause) or hardware failure.
    I suggest that you update the BIOS to version 3.30

    I installed mouse drivers just to see if that's gonna fix the problem. Mouse worked normally with microsoft driver (all the settings I needed were saved on mouse back from win 7 days). Also there are no newer drivers (they didn't release anything with more than win 7 compatibility). I'll try replacing the mouse and see if that resolves the problem.

    From what I know 3.xx versions are only compatible with Ivy Bridge. Friend with same motherboard and cpu updated his BIOS to newest verison, after contacting Asrocks support he ended up buying a bios chip with older version cause downgrading wasn't possible.


    Just went through whole UEFI and found out that my RAM wasn't on XMP profile. No idea if that could be the cause, it was just running slower, but I just changed it back.
