    Windows crash (BSOD): dwm.exe MEMORY_CORRUPTION_ONE_BYTE

    Hello all, my computer got a BSOD from this error. I was using the Intel Turbo boost Max 3.0 program before it happened. All i did was try to Enable/Disable the Turbo boost , and then the BSOD happened. Does anyone have any idea what this error means? Have i encountered a bug?

    the System maybe had an "overclocking" reacting because of using Intel Turbo boost Max 3.0. This could cause the BSOD. U should try to revert to stock settings. Seems that u make "experiments". Following Software u installed is known for causing bluescreens:

    EVGA Precision XOC
    Corsair LINK 4

    Revert all settings and profiles to stock und remove those tools for testing purposes to see if the bluescreens dissapear.

    The bluescreen dump analysis shows two things:
    0x0000001A:    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (26.05.2017 18:17:37) [Windows 10] 
    CAUSED BY:     memory_corruption    
                   nvlddmkm.sys [1.05.2017] * nVidia Video drivers * =>  
    PROCESS:       dwm.exe 
    Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel

    Please roll back the nvidia driver to an older version or update to the newest.

    U should also do an memtest to check RAM:

    Windows crash (BSOD): dwm.exe MEMORY_CORRUPTION_ONE_BYTE Diagnostic Test Windows crash (BSOD): dwm.exe MEMORY_CORRUPTION_ONE_BYTE

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note
    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.

    I was able to enable and disable before without getting the blue screen. This was the first time it has happened. Also i am not overclocking my cpu, I run everything on stock. I did the memtest86 before and it didn't give me any errors.

    So is the time with the technology. It is not always easy to explain

    The only SSD test I suggest is the Crystal Mark and/or HDTune tests (listed at the bottom of the page).
    These are programs that show the SMART status. SMART is a predictive technology - NOT a diagnostic. SMART can say everything is OK - yet the hard drive can be dead/dying. SMART can say there are problems, yet the hard drive is working normally. Unfortunately, SSD's don't generally have any decent diagnostics, so the SMART tests are all that we have. The only other option is to try another drive and see if that has problems.
    You can run these tests from inside Windows - so you won't need bootable media.

    As BSODHunter commented in post #2 the precision x has been a faulting application.
    Please uninstall during the troubleshooting.
    What do you use this application for if you are not over clocking?
    If you need it you may be able to install it at a later time.
