Hi, there! So there was a power outage for about two hours last night and I was just browsing on espn.com when it went out. When power was restored, after checking the breakers and surge protectors, I flipped my PC back on and it loaded initially, booting fully up and into Windows 10. When I opened Firefox I immediately got a BSOD and my system restarted. Since then my pc will load up windows to varying points before hitting me with another BSOD, sometimes it will let me into my desktop briefly before crashing and others it will give me another BSOD midway through loading or at the startup screen. I can use safe mode for an hour or so with hit or miss results and safe mode with networking less so. I was able to run a memtest and it came back okay, but other than that and verifying that my hard drives are healthy, I haven't been able to make much headway. The BSODs I receive are as follows and occur in no discernible pattern that I can recognize:

 

Page Fault in Non Paged Area

Kmode Exception Not Handled

System Thread Exception Not Handled

Kernel Security Check Failure

Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal

System Service Exception

Driver Overran Stack Buffer

Interrupt Exception Not Handled

DPC WatchDog Violation

and one more that is something along the lines of 00000021

 

I really have no idea where to start here, guys; so please, any help would be greatly appreciated! I work and attend online classes w/that PC, so I'm pretty desperate to get it fixed! Thank you in advance!

Power outages are usually accompanied by power surges.

Surges can come through the electrical wiring, the network wiring, or telephone wiring.
I had a system that the 56k modem was fried through the ethernet - even though nothing was plugged into the 56k modem.

EDIT:  And I had a good surge protector on the power inputs (computer and monitor).

 

Random BSOD's also are frequently seen as a hardware problems.

Please start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Thanks so much for your help with this! I'm currently still running memtest 86 and found that one of my sticks was bad. I'm in the process of running the first successful stick through the other mobo ports. Both of my hard drives passed the SeaTools bootable tests. Hopefully once I'm through the memtesting I'll be able to boot up to my desktop long enough to install synsative BSOD dump correctly. I actually did have one question: As I'm switching from port to port on my mobo, the Memory SPD Informations does not change, but in the section above it; there are differences. The port the ram is currently inserted into is different than the other two. Ram speed is lower as are the CAS Timings. Is that a problem, is the test just running differently for that port or is there an issue w/that particular motherboard port? RAM is listed at 368 MHz (DDR3-736) and the CAS is 4-5-5-15 @ 64-bit mode. Thanks again for all of your help!

Just a pic I took w/my phone for clarity, so you knew specifically what I was talking about.

The stuff at the top isn't important for the tests that I suggest.  I'm more interested in pass/fail than I am in performance

While it may be important for other things (such as dual-channel, etc which will affect your performance) - I'm not familiar enough to advise about that.  Also, check it once you get all the RAM back in and see if the numbers are what you expect them to be (for example, some systems work better with 2 sticks than with one stick).

I'd suggest posting over in the Internal Hardware forums for more detailed info on RAM:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/
