I have been really struggling with bluescreen issues since I built my rig, 4-5 months now. I have looked up every tutorial out there but so far no luck. Probably spent 90 - 100 hours trying to solve this issue. You guys look pretty knowledgeable and willing to help so I figured why not give it a try. I first got in touch with usasma and am following his instructions. See attached zip files. Ive also written some detail below in case it helps.
There is a wide range of error messages that I see while I blue screen, dont have my notes on hand but its usually system thread exceptions, system service exceptions, memory, and this sort of stuff. Rarely the same one multiple times in a row. The scan goes to 100% then nothing, doesnt restart or shut down and i cant seem to find the location of the save. I have ran memory scans, kept track of temperatures, updated drivers to multiple versions, but still could not find a culprit.
I built my own computer. I have built multiple before for friends that have never had issues. Initially, I planned to get windows 7. When installing, it would not complete for some reason, I finally figured out that some hardware was not compatible with 7 so I got a bootleg 8.1. When I began to get the BSOD issues I figured it must be the software so I got the windows 10 pro promotion that was being offered. This didnt change anything. I had bought my computer to be able to support any current game, solidworks projects, photoshop, and a 2560 x 1440 screen.
The computer get the error between hours or sometimes even minutes. I have bluescreened immediately upon start when restarting from the previous bluescreen at times. It rarely happens when im just browsing the net, sometimes when Im running scans, but very often when playing a game. I keep in touch with old friends for a few hours a week when playing games but its been a very frustrating experience.
There are a few things that I believe reduced the amount of bluescreens (did not eliminate). Running games at absolute minimum graphics, using older version of graphics driver, uninstalling windows updates and preventing new ones from installing. Hopefully the windows update thing doesnt mess with the analysis that I ran for this post.
See below for more system info.
I really appreciate any help.
