    Getting BSOD randomly, ntoskrnl.exe, different errors


    I have had this issue since the day I built this computer a year ago. I get BSOD at random times (minutes, hours or days apart) doing random things (idling, browsing, playing games). BSODs show different errors, among them are KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and more. They all say that the error was caused by an undetermined driver or sometimes a more specific program, but always a different one. ntoskrnl.exe module is mentioned every time though.

    This is so random that I can't figure it out.

    I have tested RAM with different tools (memtest etc.) for 10hrs+, stress tested CPU, and changed motherboard and SSD. Test gave no results and changing those two components made no difference. Uninstalling programs and trying a different OS didn't help.

    The only weird thing was when I changed the PSU. The original one is Corsair CX430M. I have no obvious issues with it and I don't believe it's to weak for my build (shown below) since I've been getting BSODs even when I was running the system without a dedicated graphics card for 3 months. But when I tried and older 300W PSU the system kept restarting (no BSODs). I don't believe PSU is connected to my BSODs.

    BSODs appear to happen most frequently, when I'm playing video games or when I'm installing something. It doesn't always happen, but I almost expect it every time I install something big like a video game, or play it. Again, I tried a HDD instead of SSD but had the same results.

    Also, on ubuntu, I don't get BSODs, obviously, but the system freezes every so often. Maybe the same failure that causes a BSOD in Windows causes these freezes.

    I would appreciate any help!

    System specs:
    - Asus B150M Pro Gaming
    - Intel Core i3-6100
    - Corsair CX430M 430 Watt
    - Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 2133 2x8GB
    - Geforce GTX 750 Ti 2GB

    Hi vashayatrah,

    This is updated after our recent chat about about the motherboard.

    There was 2 bsod mini dump file and when it was debugged it indicated 1 misbehaving driver.
    The driver was rt640x64.sys (Realtek RT640 NT driver)

    1) open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    4) chkdsk /scan
    5) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
    6) Make sure that there is no over clocking while troubleshooting.Sometimes there are problems in the bios that produce bsod.
    7) To ensure that there are no improper bios settings please reset the bios.
    Sometimes there can be failure to boot after resetting the bios.

    8) So please make sure your files are backed up.

    9) Please make a backup image with Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free:
    Macrium Software | Your Image is Everything
    10) And please create a restore point.How to Clear Your Computers CMOS to Reset BIOS Settings:

    11) Open the Realtek website > view available drivers > identify Realtek rt640x64.sys (Realtek RT640 NT driver)

    12) open device manager > identify Realtek RT640 or GBE family controller driver > click properties > driver details > confirm rt640x64.sys > uninstall > reinstall from Realtek website

    Apologies, I have changed the motherboard this weekend, wrote the wrong one in system spec. So please ignore the Asus from my original post.

    I just got another BSOD while windows update was running while shutting down, and one right after I got back into windows. This is the file

    zbook, I will follow your instructions after I come back from work.

    Hey zbook, here is the info from administrative command prompt. I'm not overclocking anything on my own, I will reset the BIOS, change the Realtek driver and come back with results. Thank you.
