    Frequent BSOD after cleaning the dust in my laptop's fan.


    I have been getting Frequent BSOD after I blew away all the dust that was collected in my laptop's fan with an aircan to prevent overheating, (before cleaning around 50-60 celsius, after cleaning around 30-40 celsius)

    When ever i get BSOD is when either I am browsing youtube and watching videos, or when I'm playing video games.
    The errors that I have been getting are SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, Kernel Security Check Failure and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.
    Before all of this I also had some BSOD issues but after I updated the drivers I hadn't had any BSOD until my recent clean-up.

    The DM Log Collector file is attached.

    Dumps are all over the place and a few indictae memory_corruption. Since you have two different manufacturers of memory (Micron and Hynix) it would be a good idea to test the RAM:
    ===================================================
    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.

    If they test good then enable Driver Verifier and see if that points us to a problem driver:
    ===================================================
    Driver Verifier
    is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
    Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    Pay close attention to PART TWO and make sure the correct boxes are checked.

    Warning:
    It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    What we're looking for is a verifier generated BSOD with a mini dump that will tell us what driver caused it. If you get a BSOD, rerun dm_log_collector and upload the resulting zip file.

    When I try booting with the USB that I have memtest installed on, it redirects me to the bios setup

    Each computer manufacturer has a F key to boot to a device.
    If you don't boot to a device you would need to change to boot order to place the USB on the top. Then you would need to rember to switch it back when the test is completed.
    For Asus check to see if the F12 key allows you to choose the boot device.

    See I can switch the boot device, but it won't boot on it, it brings me back to the bios.

    How did you create the USB flash drive with memtest86+ on it? You laptop probably has UEFI so the USB drive needs to be formatted Fat32 which I believe the memtext86+ installer does.

    Have you tried checking the Format the drive box?
