I am having problems with my PC for more than a year now and cannot figure out what’s wrong on my own and would love to get some help on pinning down the problem and in the best case solve it. ;)
I am getting BSOD’s (mostly “Kernel Security Check Failure” and sometimes others like “IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal”). They come at (for me) unpredictable intervals, sometimes 5 minutes after startup, sometimes it can take an hour before the BSOD appears, but there are exceptions:
- The problem is for me unclear whether if it is connected to any certain PC usage. The BSOD’s happen when using a browser to surf the net, when watching movies using VLC, or simply when idle for a few seconds/minutes with only the desktop showing.
- The funny thing is though, that I can predict when it wil NOT happen. When I play a game like Battlefield 1 or Rainbow 6 Siege, the BSOD will NOT occur. I can play them for hours straight without getting the BSOD even once.
- This does not apply for every game. I sometimes play a simple Hasbro-PC-game Clue, during which the BSOD will appear.
Now that I have more time on my hands I am trying to figure out the problem. Some weeks/months ago I tried renewing all my drivers and getting rid of programs I didn’t use anymore. I also did some checks then, which turned up with nothing, or when they did the repairs did not solve the problem.
The Windows Diagnostics/System Events do show there was a problem, but I cannot seem to understand what is going on through those reports.
Today I stumbled upon the Bleeping Computer-site/forum and have tried some of the tips which did not solve it yet, so I have started this topic hoping someone can help and walk it through with me.
Is there someone who can figure out or help me figure out what is going on?
