    BSOD: Kernel Security Check Failure during playing Mirrors Edge

    BSOD triggers at random, can not seem to replicate it succesfully by a specific sequence within the game.

    How to fill out System Specs for tenforums.

    See here: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    Of major interest is the Manufacture and full model number of the computer if purchased or the system board if custom built.

    Dump doesn't contain much of use. All I noticed was a slight over-clocking:
    CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz"
    MaxSpeed:     3300
    CurrentSpeed: 3310
    If you are over clocking, please reset everything to default for now.

    A couple dumps indicate memory_corruption as the cause. Could be defective ram of bad data passed by a device driver. Your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 driver is up to date, so please run memtest86+ as described below:


    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


    is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    I updated the specs in my profile with hopefully everything relevant.

    I ran Memtest for 11 passes with no errors, and I reset everything on the motherboard to default settings (didn't know I was overclocking).

    Are there any other potential things I should look at or fix?

    Not at this point. Wait and see if any more BSODs occur. If yes, run DM_Log_collector again and upload the zip file.
