    BSOD when basically idle, bad_pool_caller ntoskrnl.exe


    31/08/2016 - Computer black screen's buzzing sound. Restart, no problem for the rest of the day. Wasn't doing anything stressful.

    1/09/2016 - Same as above

    2/09/2016 - Same as above

    4/09/2016 - Same as above but instead of restarting immediately, I waited for the sound to stop by itself. Minidump created, Bug check string: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, Bug check code: 0x0000000a. Used Driver verifier, minidump shows:
    BAD_POOL_CALLER and 0x000000c2. Keeps driver verifier on, 3 bsods in 10 minutes. Decided to remove RAM. Removes 1 of 2 8gb sticks, Get IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error before I can even log in on win10. Remove other ram, exact same thing happens. Places both RAM both in, so far no BSOD's but I feel it's just a matter of time.

    The 3 initial black screens were when my computer was in basic to complete idle. Was on netflix or reddit.

    BSODs : minidump.rar - Google Drive

    I've tried using winDBG, only shows:

    You can troubleshoot most symbol related issues by turning on symbol loading diagnostics (!sym noisy) and repeating the command that caused symbols to be loaded.
    You should also verify that your symbol search path (.sympath) is correct.

    Realtek HD audio driver is the culprit. Update it.

    Found a newer driver using DriverEasy, I think I have the latest driver now. Will post if crashes again. Thank you so far.
