    BSOD Usually while playing GTA V, caused by ntoskrnl.exe


    I keep getting repeated BSOD after fresh install of Windows 10. I originally reinstalled because my computer was running really slowly and nothing else was working, so I reinstalled my OS. Most of them have been SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION or SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, mostly caused by ntoskrnl.exe. I have tried updating most of my drivers and have posted to other threads, and a user on Tom's Hardware lead me here. Thanks for any help that anyone can give.

    Hi brandonium10,

    Unfortunately, there are issues with symbols and we have to wait for Microsoft to fix them.

    However, the BSODs are all over the place + since you state that a reinstall doesn't help it is obvious that a hardware issue is present.

    Please run all below tests.
    Please note, if you have any question about any test below, many questions that are asked are answered in the tutorials, read them carefully and if you still have a question after reading please do not hesitate to ask

    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.

    Addition:
    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.

    I ran prime95 for about an hour and then my computer blue screened resulting in a ntoskrnl.exe error. Here is the results.txt from the prime95 folder because I couldn't screenshot it:

    If I'm reading correct, a ton of hardware errors reported by prime95? That means you'd need to replace the CPU.

    I'll run the other tests as well to see if it is just that.
