    Question BSOD/freezes on specific games, and some applications with specific triggers (hal.dll, ntoskrnl.exe, PSHED.dll)

    This all started when I tried to make a windows update to play minecraft RTX as windows store required a recent version of windows, and mine was pretty outdated. I download the update and everything afterwards is just downhill. From there, I couldn't be in a discord call while having a game...
  3. [SOLVED] ntoskrnl.exe (and sometimes hal.dll) BSOD at every start of some video games.

    Question Extreme amounts of BSOD relating to ntoskrnl.exe for months now..

    Hi thank you all for taking a look at this! I've been bombarded and to be honest, demoralized by an insane amount of BSODs dating back all the way to early November of 2019. I'm at my wits end, and I'm looking to put a stop to this soon because I'm sure after over at least 100 BSODs (probs...
