I randomly started getting this error around a week ago. I took it into a repair shop, which removed some malware which AVG hadn't picked up and cleaned out the insides of my PC, and reattached the CPU which had apparently become 'unpasted', or something of the sort. I've updated most drivers that I'm aware of, and yet the problem still persists.

 

I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. I tried to attach the minidump from the most recent crash but it says I'm not permitted to upload the file. I wasn't doing anything labour intensive on the PC at the time; CPU was at around 50% as I recall...

 

Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help.

I just went through them all on the Windows Drivers and right-clicked "Update Drivers" on each. Is there an all-in-one programme I could use?

no don't use a all in one program I had to ask with a previous mention of malware as that can usually cause errors with pc's

 

have you tried to perform a system restore to a earlier date? (windows key + R>run>rstrui.exe)

Okay, I won't use an all in one program.

 

Yes, I performed a system restore, with the restore point being a week prior to the onset of the issue.

Right clicking on drivers to update them will cause the system to check Windows/Microsoft Update for any available updates.

Unfortunately, Microsoft does not reliably get updates from the device manufacturers - so they don't necessarily have the most updated drivers.

The best place to get drivers from is the manufacturer's website - but some OEM's modify drivers, so you may have to check there also.

 

Beyond that, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location. (By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop)
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

If it doesn't work for you, then please try this:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
