    BSOD - ntoskrnl.exe With Various Error Messages

    For the past couple months, I've been having daily BSOD issues (sometimes twice a day), which almost always occur when gaming with multiple programs/windows open, but has also occurred a couple times when just using the browser. I downloaded a program called WhoCrashed to help analyze my dump files, and while my BSOD issues are not only linked to this module, most of them are so I figured that this would be the first one to tackle.

    WhoCrashed says that each crash was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe, but there are various error messages associated with this module in each crash such as "PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA", "KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE", and "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL."

    From the WhoCrashed analysis and some very brief research I've done online, this seems to be a mysterious software/driver issue, so the first thing I did was update all of my drivers and run a memory diagnostic test, but the issues still remain. I'd prefer to exhaust any other possibilities before resorting to wiping and reformatting my whole computer, which I'm not 100% sure would resolve this issue if it ends up being hardware related, but I'm ready to expect the worst.

    The DM Log file is attached to this post.

    Please let me know if you are able provide any insight or if I need to provide any more information. I'd really appreciate it...thanks!

    Okay, I believe I added all of my specs with as much detail as I can. Thank you very much for your replay, and please let me know if there is anything else that I can do.

    Remove DriverEasy and revert back any driver installations done by it.

    Diagnostic Test


    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.

    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Okay, so I uninstalled DriverEasy, but I'm not sure which drivers/files it modified or if I have a restore point to go back to, so I'm unsure of how to properly revert back any driver installations done by DriverEasy.

    I just got done running the MemTest86 and went 9 passes without an error. I've attached a picture of the results.

    Best way to remove those drivers is by a clean install.
