So even though you updated audio drivers, the same ones are still on PC.

dumps dated 4th & 8th both have
Nov 27 2018RTKVHD64.sysRealtek Audio System driver https://www.realtek.com/en/

Lets try this with newer ones and see if it is still using that driver - this should get you a newer version - https://www.tenforums.com/sound-audio/135259-latest-realtek-hd-audio-driver-version-2-a.html
i tried to install the latest one and it said the best driver for your device is already installed.

of the next 2 BSOD, one of those mentions USBXHCI, HIDCLASS, usbccgp which are all used to talk to USB devices.
from my post of the 4th, after a further look, this appears to be your keyboard
as usbccgp.sys is linked to your input devices in dxdiag

+-+ USB Composite Device
| | Vendor/Product ID: 0x0C45, 0x8603

USBXHCI is not mentioned above but its the USB Extensible Host controller used for all USB 3 devices, so its involved as well.

USB & PCI are linked at some lvl as I had a dying mouse 2 years ago and it took 6 months for it to finally go and in that time my GPU was getting the blame for random things happening. Just saying that as the Nahimic behaviour could be related.

last 2 BSOD are just blaming intelppm.sys which are the Microsoft Intel chipset drivers

now not 100% sure if the cause of one was Keyboard or mouse.
Do you have anything on keyboard or mouse that lets to do another task. Its hard to explain, this driver was last running before 1 of the crashes - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/usbcon/usb-common-class-generic-parent-driver

Using the features of the generic parent driver, device vendors can make selective use of Microsoft-supplied driver support for some interfaces.

The interfaces of some composite device operate independently. For example, a composite USB keyboard with power buttons might have one interface for the keyboard and another interface for the power buttons. The USB generic parent driver enumerates each of these interfaces as a separate device. The operating system loads the Microsoft-supplied keyboard driver to manage the keyboard interface, and the Microsoft-supplied power keys driver to manage the power keys interface.
intelppm isn't cause, its just the only recognisable driver in most of your crashes.
I am only chasing USB as of all your crashes, there are only 2 where it showed me anything I could chase.

Usbccgp – USB Generic Parent Driver – it allows devices to use Microsoft drivers to do different tasks. Do you have custom button functions on mouse?
Hidusb – Human Interface Device – USB miniport driver
HIDCLASS – Human Interface Devices – mouse/kb/etc
Wdf01000 – kernel mode driver framework
USBXHCI – USB Extensible Host controller – used for USB 3

well, one is blaming internet drivers, as AFD.sys is Ancillary Function Driver for WInsock, and Winsock is what WIndows uses to talk to internet. I only know what AFD.sys means as I typed that all up yesterday...

wifi or LAN?
Feb 03 2020e1d68x64.sysIntel(R) Gigabit Adapter driver
Feb 11 2020rtwlane.sysRealtek PCI-E Wireless LAN NIC NDIS driver https://www.realtek.com/en/


I have to note I seen LOTS of lan drivers crashing in last week and I am not 100% sure it wasn't caused by a windows update, as these aren't old drivers.

I can't tell what cause is on other 9 though.
intelppm.sys is the windows chipset driver

this has been known to cause similar errors -

I am not using the lan drivers because my lan is disconnected. Also i noticed something the crashes happen more when discord is on(it crashes when left idle) as opposed to off. so might this be related to to sound drivers because discord messages make notifications sound.

when i said lan, i was including wifi. So it could be the Feb drivers from realtek too. Or it could be windows update as, like I said, in last week almost all BSOD have been lan drivers. It seems unlikely to me that drivers released in Feb would be bad.

Discord uses internet (obvious).

Its only one out of 10 BSOD. I am not sure if you wouldn't be better asking on here and see if they can resolve this faster than I am. https://www.tenforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/

if you don't get an answer, come on back. I am not giving up but I can't really get a lot from the MCE reports.
