    Constant BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.exe


    So I got to build a new pc. It al went well until I suddenly started to get some BSODs. I searched online and got to the conclusion that it was something wrong with the drivers, so I went and updated them all manually, but that didn't solve the problem. I then ran chkdsk /f /r with the Windows 10 installing drive, and the results said everything was fine. At that point I decided to make a clean install of Windows 10 again to see If it would solve the problem. After I installed it, I updated the drivers again, and a few days later, I started to get the BSODs again. Then, I went and downloaded BlueScreenView to see what was causing the problem, and in every single BSOD there was this ntoskrnl.exe marked as the cause (there usually was another file that was blamed during the actual BSOD, like volsnap.sys, tcpip.sys, etc.)
    It usually just resets and get no other BSOD until I turn it off and turn it on manually.

    With basically no other option, I come here to you guys to see if I can get some help. Also, my RAM is actually two kits of 2x8GB, so I have 32GB. Is there any way that having two kits of the same RAM causing these problems?

    There are many different bugchecks in the dumpfiles.

    The cause for different error codes are usually hardware and lower level problems.

    U should begin with:



    Diagnostic Test

     RAM TEST


    Run MemTest86+ V5.01 to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums



    Note   Note
    MemTest86+ V5.01 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.

    Please test only two RAM sticks at once (2x 8 GB). When 8 passes are done test the other two RAM modules

    Ok, I ran it today in the morning with all the sticks for 4 hours (the non-UEFI version), then shut it down with no errors, gonna run it overnight today.

    Its important to run it 8 passes long in one piece without interruption. With 32 GB RAM (four modules) it could take up to 100 hours. Running it over night will not be enough my friend :)

    Thats why I wrote u should test only 2 sticks at once. You should plan two days for it.


    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.

    Ok so here is the 8 passes on the first 2x8gb kit. Couldn't run the 8 passes in a single run because there was a storm after the first 3, so i did the other 5 later. I'm running the test on the other kit, with 5 passes as of posting this.

    Are the versions of memtest really that different? It's just so much time to run it again on both of the kits :/

    If you use software to test hardware you will want the most up to date software.
    In addition the method of testing is important.
    For memory testing it has been found that the results can be misleading if improper testing is performed.
    For example if less than 8 passes are performed there is a high incidence of false negatives.
    A false negative is getting a test result of pass and finding later that the RAM was malfunctioning.
    So in order to reduce the false negatives a minimum of 8 passes is required and the more passes the better.
