    Kernel_security_check_failure bsod


    I just finished building my new rig yesterday evening. I originally struggled with getting the OS installed until I updated my BIOS drivers. Once the fresh install completed, everything seemed to be running fine, however, since then, I've experienced 3 BSOD crashes. I have tried to do my own research but I've not come up with anything that explains what the crashes are. I have not experienced any continuity on the crashes. Once was while gaming, another was simple web browsing, and a third was while I was away from computer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! W10 is fully up to date, and I've only installed the most recent drivers for my system and made sure no extra or old drivers are installed.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to help!

    All are pointing to USB drivers, there are a few things we need to do before we find out what is causing the problem.
    First, update the USB drivers from ASUS Z170-A | Motherboards | ASUS Global

    Second, remove all USB devices except for mouse & keyboard and use different ports for mouse & keyboard.

    Your display driver has been flagged a few times too
    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial to do so NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Thank you for the advice, I'll get those USB drivers updated and clean wipe my NVIDIA drivers and see how that goes! Appreciate your help!

    I'm no longer experiencing any BSOD's after your recommendations. However, I am now experiencing total shutdowns of my system - only during video gaming, it will turn off as if someone had hit the reset button - the system turns back on immediately. Can anyone suggest some ways I could narrow down the possible causes? My video card and PSU are about 5 months old, and I have a hard time believing they are the culprit, but I'm willing to try anything.

    I am not experiencing any overheating, I've checked Open Hardware Monitor and my GPU hovers around 80C and my CPU around 45C

    Please fill in your system specs
    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 including PSU, cooling and other used stuff like mouse, keyboard, monitor, case, etc.
    The PSU, cooling and other stuff are NOT mentioned in the tool.
    How to fill in your system specs:

    I've updated my system, let me know if there is information missing you'd like to see.

    Please ensure that you clean your system of any dust and reseat the GPU.

    I moved the GPU to a different PCIe x16 slot, made sure there was no dust on my system at all. All of my BSOD's are completely gone, so thank you! Is there a forum you could recommend I talk to about my hard resets? Obviously, I don't want to monopolize your time on a BSOD thread

    It is no big deal, I have a little bit of troubleshooting experience with other crashes besides BSODs, though it may be harder because of all the system crashes only a BSOD does create a log that is useful, but I like a challenge
    I know some things for basic troubleshooting and a few things for more advanced troubleshooting, in many cases it won't come beyond that

    The crashes we know:
    • Shutdown/restart
    • Freeze
    • BSOD

    Correct, initially I was encountering BSOD's. Per your recommendations, I updated my USB drivers, which eliminated all BSOD's. You also mentioned seeing some NVIDIA driver issues, so I used the Driver Cleanup and wiped all of my drivers for my graphics card, and started fresh. Since then, I haven't encountered any issues other than my computer completely shutting down, and then immediately restarting. The only times I encounter restarts are when I put load on my GPU via video games (and once during Furmark), however it is not consistent (I can't predict when a reset will happen, they have been as frequent as 1 minute after booting up a game, or no resets during a 3 hour period). I have run GPU stress tests via Heaven's Benchmark, and Furmark, while logging my CPU and GPU temps, my CPU never got above 58C in Aida64 CPU stress, and my GPU was averaging 83C (which is high, but not unreasonable for aircooled).

    So far, I have re-dusted my computer, reseated my GPU, moved my GPU, reinstalled all drivers. I have a spare GPU card that I can install, however, it has a much lower TDP than my 980TI (it's a 770). So, if I do not experience crashes, it does not help me pinpoint if it is a PSU or a GPU issue, but I'm willing to try it.

    Let me know if this is all relevant information and what other steps I can provide for you. I wish there was a way to measure the draw on my PSU to see if maybe I have one specific capacitor going bad. It's hard to know if there is a hardware issue in my GPU as there are no error logs for me to reference.
