    New build, new Windows install - BSOD when playing games

    Attachment 127098

    I just rebuilt this machine with new Motherboard/CPU, RAM, and Graphics card, and I get several errors. I've hammered out most of them, but the one that continues to plague me is the IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL. I have a feeling that it has to do with the Realtek Audio Driver, but I have the latest one from the manufacturer, so I don't know what else to do.

    One of the dumps does indicate a problem with your Realtek audio driver: RTKVHD64.sys
    BugCheck C4, {2002, fffff80c49ab2a7c, 20, 0}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for RTKVHD64.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for RTKVHD64.sys
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption
    Driver Description: Realtek High Definition Audio Function Driver
    Driver Update Site:

    Check and see if a newer driver is available from Realtek web site? All I see on the ASRock site is the one you have, as you said.

    Also, several of the dumps indicate memory_corruption. This can be defective RAM or can be caused by device driver problems. It would be good to do an extensive test of your ram as fo9llows:
    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    MemTest86+ is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    warning   Warning
    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    Note   Note
    MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    Take a picture when done and post in the forum please.
