Windows 10: BSOD Usually once per boot Solved

    I would say that the current crashes are the same. They all happen shortly after I boot up the PC for the first time. Many times, I also get additional crashes after rebooting. These can take the form of additional BSOD, BIOS stalling right before the memory test, or motherboard beeps. Eventually, after these reboots and maybe going through the windows recovery screens to just say restart, I am always able to get into my PC and use it successfully for the rest of the night.

    Another BSOD tonight. It took a little longer than usual - probably 10 minutes after booting up.

    New file attached.

    That last crash was probably caused by: atikmdag.sys (just like we found 4 weeks ago)

    It would be worth trying again to reinstall the graphics driver and try a newer version.

    Use the method I gave you in post #2:

    1. Update your graphics driver: the best way to do this is to uninstall everything of AMD using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from your Graphics card manufacturer or from the AMD website. I would advise to only install the driver and not the Catalyst software for tweaking and control.

    Thanks for everyone's help. I removed my graphics card, disassembled it, thoroughly cleaned it, applied new thermal paste, and installed it back. I then used the Radeon Crimson software to identify everything that was needed. In addition to the HDMI sound and the normal graphics driver, it had me install a third (I'm not remembering the name) that I did not have installed, so I installed it.

    Since all of this... no issues.. yet.

    Late last week, I had some more BSOD. Since, I've done the following:
    I disabled C1E in the bios.
    I turned off the fast-start feature.
    Finally, I have used your method (again) to uninstall my drivers and have installed the latest driver on AMDs website.

    Had 4 BSOD tonight. Dump files attached.

    I've now removed my graphics card and am running off of on board graphics.

    Is there anything new in the dump files? Anything else I can try? Is it worth buying a new graphics card to see if it solves it, or is there a chance it is my motherboard or something else?

    I have installed a different graphics card (borrowed from someone). I can recreate a BSOD by knocking my tower into the metal desk that sits next to (see photo). I know that some of the historical BSOD have been caused by an inadvertent knock (usually a kick as I swivel my chair around), but not all. Some just happen out of nowhere.

    Am I dealing with two separate issues? Or are they the same? Seems that something is loose...

    Dump attached.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Check all your connection/cables on your mobo and from/to your mobo esp. from the PSU.
    Look for loose cables and/or damaged cables etc.
    These kinds of knocks could cause some kind of short-circuit in your system when you bump into the metal desk.
    Is your mobo inserted the right way with all the screws and standoffs in the right place?
    No loose or fallen screws in your system?

    I removed my motherboard, disconnected all of my RAM, and thoroughly cleaned the CPU fan, memory, memory slots, and the general MOBO surface.

    I'm 99% sure that root cause was the CPU fan blowing dust directly into the RAM slots as the one closest to the SPU would cause a BSOD if I barely touched it while the machine was running. After cleaning, and a few weeks later no BSODs... Let's hope it's solved for good.

    Thanks all for the help.
