    But we still haven't fixed the xqhdrv.sys issue. Should I delete it or what?

    There's also e2xw10x64.sys and bcmsmbsp.sys which I had questions about above.

    Our main focus is the BSODs. On the side I will see what I can figure out about these drivers. But we won't know if they are causing the BSODs until the next one.

    I deleted xqhdrv.sys, since it seems to be related to VirtualBox and shouldn't hurt at all since I've already uninstalled it.

    Regarding the network drivers (e2xw10x64.sys), I updated them as, conveniently, it seems the last drivers were released on 15 August: Killer Networking - Standard Drivers

    Now I'm going to turn on Driver Verifier again and keep searching for bcmsmbsp.sys to find out why I actually have it.

    Just got a BSOD again, but this time it was "WORKER INVALID". Here are the debug files.

    I apologize for the late reply!

    The type of errors I am getting from your dump files are starting to point more towards memory. I would suggest doing a MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums just to be safe.

    Please let it run for a minimum of 8 passes! Once it is done with it's 8th pass. Post back results, and we will go from there.

    Hey,

    I'll get to the memory test soon.

    However, I have one more question. Before, I had the "Write debugging information" in "Startup and Recovery" set to "Small memory dump", but "Automatic memory dump" seems to be better, so I set it to that. It did however, warn me that I need 800 MB at least page file or something, but I set my C: drive (the SSD, and where I have my operating system of course) to system managed and no page file on the rest. What should I set these to?

    Are you talking about setting the dump files to the correct settings? This tutorial should help you with that: BSOD Minidump - Configure to Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I looked at that, but it doesn't give the necessary information that I need.

    1. It doesn't recommend which one to use, merely states how you can change the settings.
    2. It doesn't tell me how the page file should be set up.

    Sorry I had to actually do a bit of research on this as I never encountered this problem before. First I have to applaud you for being so curious. It seems like you want to just know more and more about your system than anything else.

    Anyway,

    Give this a shot and it should fix your issue so you can change your page file to a separate hard drive. How to move page file in Windows 10 to another disk

    Thank you for the help as well! I am interested in learning more about my system because I want to work in this field at some point.

    Anyway, I looked at the link you provided but it still does not give advice regarding how to set it (only how the person writing the guide set it for his PC, not a general recommendation). He does say you should use the page file on an SSD if you have one, which I'm already doing.

    The issue is: use system managed page file or custom size (and in this case how big)? I ask again because when I switch to Automatic memory dump, it gives me the error with page file needs to be at least 800 MB, when page file is set to system managed and not custom.

    That is my question as I found multiple guides, some suggesting custom size, others system managed, and the least suggesting page file off (page file off is probably the worst out of all options though).
