Greetings,

 

I have been running into BSOD issues for around the past month and a half. The Windows stop codes I've been getting have gone from Watchdog Violation, to IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and more. Using WhoCrashed to look at the dump files, it always comes back to an nt_wrong_symbols.sys issue. I have updated my drivers for everything I could think of, but I still get crashes.

 

There is not a consistent frequency of when I get a BSOD. I've had it crash when clicking the button to update Google Chrome, to muting my mic on Discord, and sometimes in the middle of watching a video on VLC. I've gone two weeks without crashing after updating several drivers, but it recently popped up again. My system does not BSOD every day, but when it does run into an issue, it tends to be the only time it will have crashed that day.

The only significant changes I have made to my system that I can think of right before this started happening was that I started using a new USB microphone. A Fifine K668 USB mic, to be exact.

Before then, I have not had any issues.

I would very much appreciate any help in fixing this.

Ah, I thought I had attached that in my message, but it seems not. My bad.

Something weird happened with making an account with Twitter as I could not log back in, so I had to make another one, hence the different name.

Don't worry about the Sysnative report. It gets missed a lot. You only had one dump file and very few errors. The dump file is blaming Memory Corruption so let's test your RAM.

 

Lets start by eliminating the ram as a source, Use Memtest86 to test the ram> https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi6kJCoj9HZAhVLON8KHQ4EC-IQFggpMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.memtest86.com%2F&usg=AOvVaw2hpSfQL2mRiv8-CXaB3LPO- Please run it for 8 passes. If errors show up sooner you don't need to contimue.

Here is a nice tool to make sure you get compatible RAM for your computer. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/memory-finder
