    steps 7 - 13

    Were there any power off? Hangs? freezes? display artifacts? unexpected restarts?
    There were multiple crashes in the event viewer on 12/20

    Hello

    I didn't experience any hangs except when trying to boot Memtest once, but it booted normally without crashing.

    The system is now configured to capture bugchecks.
    Windows driver verifer is a tool that is designed to find misbehaving drivers and will repetitively produce BSOD until misbehaving drivers are fixed or until the tool is turned off.
    In order to use the tool you must know how to turn it off and that is done using the windows advanced troubleshooting menu.
    There are 3 methods to turn off the tool. In case the first method fails you would use the second. And if the second fails you would use the third. Using the third method often leads to the loss of the dump file so always use them in this order:
    1) startup options (not startup repair) > restart > select #6 safe mode with command prompt > type: verifier /reset
    2) command prompt > Administrator X: \Windows\system32\cmd.exe > type: verifier /bootmode resetonbootfail
    3) system restore

    Before using windows driver verifier:
    1) Backup all files
    2) Create a backup image using Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free
    3) Place the backup image onto another drive or into the cloud
    4) create a brand new restore point

    After each BSOD you will uninstall the misbehaving driver and restart windows driver verifier. The reinstallation of drivers can be done immediately after they are uninstalled or after all misbehaving drivers are uninstalled.

    Windows driver verifier should be run for 48 hours and there may be sluggishness during its use. After the last BSOD windows driver verifer will be used for an additional 36 hours of typical computer use.

    Use this link for the test settings:
    Driver Verifier-- tracking down a mis-behaving driver. - Microsoft Community

    Use this link for learning the methods to turn off windows driver verifier:
    Enable and Disable Driver Verifier in Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    After each BSOD please post a new zip for guidance through the troubleshooting:

    Hope everyone had a good Christmas!

    Run Driver Verifier and never crashed. I hoped I set it upright. Over the holidays I started to go back to a previous version of a Nvidia driver and that seemed to have solved my problem as my performance is much better in all tasks. I also updated my BIOS.

    So, I thank everyone especially zbook and you helped me even through my incompetence at some tasks.

    Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
