    Getting regular BSOD's playing games, tried almost everything


    Not sure where to begin, recently I have been experiencing Blue Screens and the cause appeared to be ntoskrnl.exe giving the error. I have tried updating all the drivers and even checking RAM but so far nothing seems to help, I removed a few dud drivers (AsUpIo.sys and AsIO.sys) which seemed to help but now it's still doing it.

    I also tried several Nvidia drivers which seemed to help at first but now it seems to happen more frequently.

    Really not sure what's causing the error now, short of reinstalling Windows 10 (which I'd want to avoid if possible) there isn't much else I can do

    Hi Moonky,

    Welcome to the 10forums

    The crashes are 0xD1, an indication of a driver, it seems you've used driver verifier already although I'm wondering where you get those settings.
    Code:
      STANDARD FLAGS:
        [X] (0x00000000) Automatic Checks
        [X] (0x00000001) Special pool

        [X] (0x00000800) Miscellaneous checks
        [X] (0x00020000) DDI compliance checking
    
      ADDITIONAL FLAGS:
        [ ] (0x00000004) Randomized low resources simulation
        [ ] (0x00000200) Force pending I/O requests

        [ ] (0x00200000) NDIS/WIFI verification

        [ ] (0x02000000) Code integrity checks
    
        [X] Indicates flag is enabled
    However since driver verifier was unable to flag any driver + pagefaults (drivers passing bad data to memory or passing data to corrupted memory) there are 2 options.
    1. Driver verifier didn't flag any driver because it didn't check the setting that was violating
    2. The pagefault was caused due to bad memory.

    I suggest that you start with running MemTest86+ for 8 straight completed passes or until errors show up as the tutorial describes.

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

    Note   Note


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete 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.


    Make a photo of the result and post it please.

    Addition:
    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Hey thanks for replying, I am not actually sure where I found the settings for verifier because I was searching so many places to find a fix that it's hard to keep track of where I found it.

    I've ran Memtest previously but it didn't really find anything, I will test it again and see if it does produce anything this time. Also I have since disabled something which I heard can cause memory leaks so we'll see if that helped.

    Will report back!

    What exactly is it that you've disabled?

    Well I don't know if it was enabling or disabling but there was a registry fix I found with others that had the same problem so I changed that for now.

    Standard that setting is disabled, the page file isn't something that causes memory leaks (unless there is a bug), the way it works is to make your system keep running smooth without any interference.
    What you've said to the system is to empty the page file when you shut down, the page file works similar to the RAM only the page file is meant for programs that haven't been used for a longer period.
