Since quarantine has started I started using my pc again after some time, and now my pc is crashing almost every time.

So on some games, my pc will either blue screen and report back this (from whocrashed)

crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\102820-6640-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (0xFFFFF8073DB4BAA4)
Bugcheck code: 0x50 (0xFFFFD481F12ABDB8, 0x2, 0xFFFFF8073DB4BAA4, 0x2)
Error: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
file path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nv_dispi.inf_amd64_feed726c6560f7a7\nvlddmkm.sys
product: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 456.71
company: NVIDIA Corporation
description: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 456.71
Bug check description: This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nvlddmkm.sys (NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 456.71 , NVIDIA Corporation).
Google query: nvlddmkm.sys NVIDIA Corporation PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Or it will report back

crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\102820-5156-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x3F45A0)
Bugcheck code: 0xA (0xFFFF9E00004EAFA0, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8052515C155)
Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above. This is a software bug.
This bug check belongs to the crash dump test that you have performed with WhoCrashed or other software. It means that a crash dump file was properly written out.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

OR it will crash my game but not blue screen.
it will happen on csgo, raft, call of duty modern warfare 2, but won't crash when I play rainbow six, phasmaphobia or any non-game actions such as schoolwork. csgo will crash it everytime I load into a game and will last about 20 seconds.



I have removed all third-party apps from my computer and made all my bios settings on auto.

my specs are
- Intel Core i7 6700k 4.0 Ghz

- MSI Z270 Gaming Plus MB

- G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16gb 3000 MHz @ 1.35V DDR4 Ram (spd is 2133Mhz @ 1.2V)

- MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X + 6Gb

- ThermalTake Smart 550w PSU Bronze Certified

If you are using a very new/latest driver of graphics card then it may be faulty , happened to me once my system used to crash in few secs after boot (fresh install) .

Try going back to 1-2 versions of display driver.
Try updating DirectX.
Try Installing Visual C++ that game needs, they are specific to each game.

Sometimes it's located inside installation directory of game inside Redist Folder.
  1. Try Disabling Driver Signature Enforcement, else
  2. Update drivers using any software, else
  3. Did you made zero/reduced Virtual Memory Size, then set it back to half of your RAM size, else
  4. Perform RAM check, for errors

if he on win 10 he can't update directX

Please don't use driver booster. Its a terrible program, all 3rd party driver updaters have nasty habit of installing the wrong drivers and breaking things. HIs motherboard has a driver updater called Live Update 6, its on the utility page here - https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z270-GAMING-PLUS#down-driver&Win10 64

memtest might help.
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

Okay so recently I've been still going at this problem and I am not getting BSOD anymore but my games are still crashing to the desktop with no explanation. Im on wwwindows 10 and is up to date. I've used DDU in safe mode before, currently I'm on the latest Nvidia driver as of today (457.09) (downloaded and installed through geforce experience). i am crashing on almost every steam game I try to run, but benchmarks and stress tests do fine. Ive ran the memtest from windows multiple times with no error. I've done memtest64 with 4 passes with no errors. Ive done a clear cmos, reinstall of windows, and in the event viewer I get this after my games crashes,

Also I've tried going back an update or two and it says it is not compatible with my pc. I will try again tomorrow

also could you explain what steps 1 and 3 do?

i have asked a friend to convert the dump files.

Also I've tried going back an update or two and it says it is not compatible with my pc. I will try again tomorrow
what did you try to install?

Step1 = Disable driver signatures shouldn't be needed if they win 10 drivers.
Step 3 = messing with page file size. Not sure how it would help really.

discord isn't ideal place to solve errors like this, it is much easier to track progress on a forum than on a discord channel. Tom's has its own server on discord but its still not really suited for problem solving.

Trail one stick at a time and also take out the battery on the motherboard for 10 minutes put it back in then go to the BIOS optimize defaults and see how things run if it's okay with that one stick then try the other stick.

Hi, I ran the dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://jsfiddle.net/e94tuxzo/show This link is for anyone wanting to help. You do not have to view it. It is safe to "run the fiddle" as the page asks.

Comment: The overclocking driver "IOCBios2.sys" was found on your system. (Intel Extreme Tuning Utility)

Comment: The overclocking driver "NTIOLib_X64.sys" was found on your system. (MSI Afterburner or other MSI software)

Possible Motherboard page: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/z270-gaming-plus.html
There is a BIOS update available for your system. You are using version 1.5 and the latest is 1.6. 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.

crash 1 - Nvidia
crash 2 - unclear
crash 3 - Nvidia
crash 4 - Unclear
crash 5 - Symantec - see if there is an update for your Anti virus, it caused the 5th crash

@gardenman if you had to guess, what would you blame if rainmeter crashed? since you use it. it was victim on crashes 2 & 4.

Try running DDU and use windows update after restart, it will put older Nvidia drivers on that may work better.

How upto date are the motherboard chipset drivers, especially the audio and Lan drivers. Your gpu drivers work in conjuction with the motherboard chipsets, but the main driver is the gpu. If the motherboard chipset has a conflict then quite often it's the gpu driver that fails, and thats what's getting reported.

It's like saying you spilled the drink because you tripped. The only reason you tripped was a loose shoelace. You didn't spill the drink because of your shoelace .

Depends on what skin was loaded in RainMeter. RM can do many things, work with DirectX (newer Beta version I think), can connect to internet (like most of the gadgets that I use), and many other things. Basically RM is almost equivalent to a scripting language and it can reach out and touch many pieces of the hardware (which goes through the drivers of course).

It can also use 3rd party hardware monitoring software to display things such as GPU info.
