So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.
Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.
I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:
- IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
- BAD POOL HEADER
Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:
So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I hit F2. There have been times where I had to go into BIOS and revert it to default settings as well (even though I never change a thing in there, but it worked.)
Then it reboots back up as usual. Very rarely i'll get an instant BSOD when it logged in, but that only happens rarely.
Now, the solutions i've been trying:
- Deleted graphics drivers (all of them) and reinstalled them. Did not work.
- Out of frustration reinstalled Windows 10. Did not fix anything.
- Brought him in to a shop. The BSOD's never appeared there and seemingly there's nothing wrong within the system, according to him.
- Went to my parents house to test there, since I do not have a car. Played games there, no BSOD.
I got the hope that maybe it was fixed, but then I returned home, tried it out and after 10 or so minutes of playing Battlefield 1, BSOD. This time it gave me the IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL & BAD POOL HEADER errors.
I've even been paranoid enough to think that it might be external hardware that is causing it? Like my headset or speakers or SOMETHING that was different when I brought it to the shop or when I was home at my parents house. Is that even possible?
It's good to know that i've had my current video card since release of the GTX 1070 and it never caused any sort of problem before.
Here are two dump errors: I cannot show the others as they occured before I reinstalled Win10, so I do not have those dump files anymore, but here are two of the most recent ones:
In case system specs are needed:
Computer type: PC/Desktop
OS:Windows 10 64x
CPU:Intel Core i7 3820 @ 3.60GHz
Motherboard:Alienware 07JNH0 (CPU 1)
Memory:20,0GB DDR3 @ 799MHz
Graphics Card(s):4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (MSI)
I'm pretty desperate at this moment, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the read!
