    BSOD playing overwatch ntoskrnl related?


    Hello,

    I recently got a new graphics card, as well as upgrading my OS to windows ten.

    However before and after these actions I receive various BSODs but only while playing Overwatch.

    Looking into it they seem to be related to the ntoskrnl.exe process, but I may be wrong.

    Here is the information requested:

    Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
    If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

    An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

    Please temporary uninstall Avira and use Windows Defender as alternative while troubleshooting as a test

    I have uninstaller the driver booster programme. Sadly I did not have a usable system restore point so I went through my device manager as best as possible and removed drivers, rebooted, and reinstalled them. Of course this may have missed something.

    I have uninstalled Avira and other potentially offending antivirus services and am using Windows Defender.

    Using the tool I have updated my system specs as best as possible. However the auto-update option seems to only work with the sevenforums and not the current forums.

    As for power supply, case, and cooling systems, are there any available means to quickly check these, or will I have to open up my case to complete the system specs for your purposes?

    I would recommend to perform a clean installation to properly remove the installed drivers.

    These need to be looked up physically, unless you have some administration (like an invoice) that says what PSU, cooling system, etc. your system uses.
