About a month or 2 ago upgraded to a m.2 ssd, Started getting random crashes with these error codes.
After searching online looking for fixes I determined it had to be something wrong with SATA AHCI Controller but after trying to update the driver ive had no success.
Any help appreciated thank you!

System:
Intel i7 8700k
Asus Prime z370
Gtx 1080ti FE
16gb 3400mhz Ram
inland premium 512 gb m.2 ssd

Hi, I ran the dump file through the debugger and got the following information: https://tauriformgreyseal.htmlpasta.com/

File information:052220-17375-01.dmp (May 22 2020 - 14:53:17)
Bugcheck:IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (A)
Probably caused by:memory_corruption (Process: fontdrvhost.ex)
Uptime:0 Day(s), 0 Hour(s), 30 Min(s), and 13 Sec(s)

Possible Motherboard page: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-Z370-A/
There is a BIOS update available for your system. You are currently using version 0614. Wait for additional information before deciding to update or not. Important: Verify that I have linked to the correct motherboard. Updating your BIOS can be risky. Never try it when you might lose power (lightning storms, recent power outages, etc).

This information can be used by others to help you. Someone else will post with more information. Please wait for additional answers. Good luck.

strange to have the font driver management service crash... i had to look it up.

irq errors can be any driver or ram.
I doubt there are newer drivers for the logitech webcam, 2012 is about normal for them
Oct 22 2012lvrs64.sysLogitech Kernel Audio Improvement Filter Driver http://support.logitech.com/
Oct 22 2012lvuvc64.sysLogitech USB Video Class Driver (WebCam) http://support.logitech.com/

it could be your wifi drivers
Oct 31 2014bcmwl63a.sysBroadcom 802 11 Network Adapter Wireless driver

it could be the nvidia drivers.

If you update the bios, it helps to update INtel Management Engine Interface at the same time, as they match each other - look under chipset on https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/PRIME-Z370-A/HelpDesk_Download/

Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors. Memtest is created as a bootable USB so that you don’t need windows to run it
