I have been seeing intermittent BSOD's for the last couple of months now whilst playing games, always IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message codes, but never any more information.
I've read that this is usually caused by bad drivers accessing invalid memory, but I can't determine which driver is causing the problem.
I've tried my hand at debugging the minidump file, but this isn't my forte, I'm hoping someone on here might be able to make more progress.
It did seem to be happening with 'older' games initially, do I thought it might have been a DirectX issue, as I seem to recall that windows 10 doesn't directly support dx9, but it's also started happening on newer games also.
The component at fault is reported as 'ntkrnlmp.exe' but I'm guessing that is not the real culprit.
A couple of weeks ago I backed up data from my desktop to my laptop and fresh installed windows 10 (as I had previously been on an upgraded versions from 7), but the blue screens have returned, which I reckon either means windows is automatically installing a bad driver, or something else is driving it to fault.
When I restarted my PC after the last blue screen, my BIOS errored reporting that the CPU temp was too high. When I got a new cpu 5/6 months ago I did have to scrape off and re-apply thermal paste to re-use my radiator, so there's a chance I didn't do that as well as I could have - Before I go re-applying the paste I just wanted to know if it was possible for cpu overheat to cause this kind of BSOD - it looks to be a software issue.
Thanks, any help in this matter is very much appreciated and any more details required I can provide.
