Windows 10: Out Of Nowhere BSODS (Kernel Security Check Failure)

    Out Of Nowhere BSODS (Kernel Security Check Failure)

    I bought this PC on the 26th of December. I used it for like a week with no issues then went inactive on it for a couple weeks after. Ever since that 2 week break I keep getting BSODs just out of the blue (No pun intended).
    I looked around for solutions and found some solutions that just did nothing. I did the disk/memory check, tried updating all my drivers and did a virus scan of my PC.

    That's all the info I have on this, but can try to give more if needed. Thanks in advance.

    The most recent dump points to dc1-controller.sys which belongs to Xbox Peripherals Drive (KMDF driver for DC1 Controller) and is owned by Microsoft. Do you have a Xbox controller connected? Other than disconnecting it, I don't know what else to do since the driver comes from Microsoft. Make sure you are up to date with Windows Updates.

    There is also a pointer to JagexLauncher which belongs to Runescape so that's a possible cause as well.

    I recommend running a CPU test, then test your RAM and HDD.

    Stress test the CPU

    Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU

    It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file here please.

    Test RAM & Hard Drive:


    Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

    DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

    You can do this on any computer that has a working CD Burner.

    You can also use a Flash drive instead of a CD.

    Download - Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7) *NEW!*.
    Unzip and run Memtest86+ USB Installer.exe.
    It will format the flash drive if you tell it to. I used a small, 16MB flash drive and it had 8.5GB left when done.

    Boot the CD or Flash drive and run Memtest86+ for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that. An overnight run is even better.

    You can stop the test after you see the first error appearing :)
    Follow this tutorial to see how you can find out what exactly is causing the errors.

    Hard Drive:

    Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

    7 Free Hard Drive Testing Programs
    Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.
    Bootable Hard Drive Diagnostics

    Lets see if any of these test help id the problem.

    Edit: Checked 5 other dumps, all the same.
