Blue Screen of death

My PC has been randomly restarting a couple months ago and today it crashed to a blue screen of death. The error message accompanying it stated that sin32k.sys Critical Structure Corruption caused the crash. I have changed out the PSU, run stress tests on the GPU and CPU which came back normal. So, I don't know if it is hardware or not related. I ran anti-virus and malware scans which other than a couple tracking cookies are clean.

I ran a driver verification test as the issue could very well be related to corrupt drivers and my PC crashed to BSOD of death 2 times. Eventually, it did a system recovery and hasn't crashed since.

However, I don't believe the underlying issue has been fixed. I don't know what driver might even be causing these issues. Any suggestions?

My specs are:
Windows 10 Home 64
AMD A10-6800K 4.10 GHZ
AMD Radeon R9 390 8 GB 18.2.2
8 GB RAM

Thanks in advance for your help!
