    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD caused by MSI Afterburner

    Hello everyone, I've got two bsod this week caused by ntoskrnl.exe so I followed this guide to find which driver is:
    WinDBG - The Basics for Debugging Crash Dumps in Windows 10 Windows 10 BSOD Tutorials

    After using the !analyze -v command it seems that Msi Afterburner is causing a bad pool memory exception and there's two drivers also: nvlddmkm.sys and win32kbase.sys

    This is the dump file: Dropbox - 062517-4984-01.dmp

    Can you help me find a fix and if it is the cause of my BSODs? Thanks.

    Like u said MSI Afterburner seems to be the cause four your bluescreens. Its shown in every dump. Revert GPU overclocking (if there is any) back to stock or remove these software to stop the bluescreens.
