For a while now, I've been having random Windows 10 bluescreens about once a month. They seem to happen during/after watching a YouTube video or doing something with Netflix. I've uninstalled my graphics drivers with DDU and reinstalled many times; however, the issue still persist. Memtest86 shows that my RAM is fine. My BIOS is up to date as well.

what is the bios bluescreen code?
Not sure if this if what you're looking for, but here's a WhoCrashed report with various BugCheck codes:

Had another bluescreen today. In my non expert opinion, it seems that a corrupt driver is causing the problem. However, I'm not sure if there's any way to isolate said driver, or if I need to uninstall/reinstall all of them.

Run Memtest86 on 1 stick of ram at a time. Going to take an overnight/all day test. I suspect that one of the modules is bad, but it's taking a while to build up enough usage to find the error.
Thanks for the reply, I'll give that a shot when I have the time. However, I'm curious as to why an error would show up on an individual stick of RAM when Memtest86 showed that all 4 together had no errors? Does this have something to do with building up usage?

If you think about all 4 sticks running simultaneously, and you are only using up 12Gb of ram at any given time, that's only 3Gb per stick. If the error is at the 4Gb mark, it rarely ever sees a hit. Testing sticks individually for @ 4-8Hrs runs the full gammut of tests on the full 8Gb, multiple times, so if there are any errors it has multiple opportunities to get recorded.

The only other thing I can think of is a very slow memory leak, and it's taking that amount of time to build up. But thats also going to require you leaving the pc on 24/7, ram is volitile memory so looses all data at power loss. A fast memory leak isn't all that difficult to locate, a slow leak is a royal pita.
