Windows 10: Infrequent BSOD While web browsing and running game in backgroud.
Infrequent BSOD While web browsing and running game in backgroud.
Hello, after replacing a broken hard drive and upgrading to Windows 10 I have had 3 BSOD in the past 13 days, 2 of the three times I have been away from my desk when they occurred.
What I Was Doing on Most Recent Crash
- Running Discord (a voice chat application)
- Playing a steam game (TF2, I run a community for this game and was talking to one of my admins while alt-tabbed so it was mainly running in the background)
- Browsing about 5 tabs on FireFox
I also run a few monitoring programs
-HWinfo64 plugged into rainmeter
the other two time I was away from my desk and only came back to the welcome screen. I know I didnt have any updates in line so I checked the minidump folder to see if I had a blue screen and found the DMP file.
The computer underwent a diagnostic when I took the system in to get the hard drive replaced (it was still under manufacturer warranty through powerspec, a micro center brand) and was told the only issue was the hard drive. Although im not sure they truly ran a full diagnostic.
The system is mainly used to run games and chat with friends online. I have rendered a few videos here and there but nothing too taxing on the computer.
If it matters at all when i replaced my HDD I installed an SSD and now keep my OS loaded on that, saving the HDD for bulk storage.
Zip file is attached, any help or insight will be greatly appreciated.
Edit 3 (New BSOD)
while messing around with some settings I believe I forced a crash. this occurred right after I clicked to run system maintenance. Just To be clear the PC BSOD occurred right after clicking the start maintenance in the screenshot http://prntscr.com/d6yfo8
added the updated collection zip, i believe the error said system service exception
I was going to post this as a reply to this thread but I see early bumping is against the rules and didnt want my addition of info to be mistaken as that.
The second log collection is named OWNER instead of Chris
edit2: added info on what was running on crash
edit3: added everything after edit 3 line

Welcome to the 10forums and apologies for the delay.
Are you still in need of help?
Yes some help would be great. I do have some updates to add but am at work at the moment. Although if you could take a peak at my dmp files that would help a ton. I'll be at lunch soon and can type more
Please check ASRock for BIOS updates.
BIOS was flashed to the latest version (7.10) . almost used the .exe to install the update then remembered that my OS is unstable and how stupid that could be.
Report back if any BSOD occurs.
just had first BSOD since update of BIOS. logs attached. was playing minecraft while on discord
Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums
MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes
for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero
errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.
Make a photo of the result and post it.
If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.
With 16gb of ram i know this will not be a short test. will run overnight tonight while i try to get finish up some work on my system during the day. thanks again axe0
That is correct, it usually takes about 1-2 days with 16GB.

I see now I posted this in the wrong area of the forums. SORRY! If someone could move this to the BSOD section I would appreciate it.
I built this PC three, maybe four, months ago now and haven't had many issues with it after initial troubleshoot...
I come in need to a diagnosis to put an end to a random BSOD I keep having.
Many thanks in advance.
Hello everyone, hopefully someone here can help me with this issue I've been having on and off for the past few months.
I built this PC myself back in October using new parts and a PSU and one backup HDD from my old build. It has been running...
Hi there i hope people can help, this has been an ongoing problem for about a month
I've been having infrequent BSOD since moving to windows 10 the first time. I figured it was that and went back to windows 7 however I was still getting crashes...
I am running the "combined command" as below at the moment.
Is it OK to continue to continue to use my PC while the commands are running? When I say "use" I'm mainly talking about web browsing.
