Is there a possibility that this is either A. Software issue or B. Ram hardware issue where I need to replace 4 of the sticks?
I don't think its ram.
fact you can play games and it doesn't happen makes me think its not ram, ram errors tend to be random and blame different drivers.
Neither dump result looks like ram. If ram is involved you get Page faults which while sounding like errors, are in fact normal operations of an operating system with virtual memory. Page fault means CPU can't find info it needs on its onboard caches and has to access RAM. A hard page fault just means info isn't in ram but storage.
Neither of your crashes have either type of fault.

Do you have a cd drive?

No I don't have any CD drives only SSD and A hardrive and I have done checks on these to find errors, to which, there were none. At this point, I think it's windows 10 itself and I might need to do a clean-nuke reinstall of it. Of course, I don't really know, like the title says "I'm stumped".

I ran the dump file through the debugger and got the following information: https://jsfiddle.net/khcdLvt6/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.

File information:080222-8593-01.dmp (Aug 2 2022 - 15:45:29)
Bugcheck:DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (133)
Driver warnings:*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for amdkmdag.sys
Probably caused by:memory_corruption (Process running at time of crash: System)
Uptime:0 Day(s), 18 Hour(s), 23 Min(s), and 48 Sec(s)

Comment: 2 or more types of RAM are installed.
Comment: The overclocking driver "AMDRyzenMasterDriver.sys" was found on your system.

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

that ones caused by your amd GPU drivers
Apr 28 2022amdkmdag.sysAMD Graphics driver

try running ddu in safe mode, uninstall AMD GPU drivers, boot back into windows and either:
  1. Get drivers from AMD; or
  2. Run windows update and let windows find older Drivers that might be more stable. They are from AMD but older.

"AMDRyzenMasterDriver.sys"
this is part of the driver software so it is probably on every AMD system (I know I have it)

I recently added this to the list of known overdriving software after seeing johnbl mention it, and asking for it to be removed.
So I reinstalled windows and installed every driver that is up to date as recent as possible. So far, I haven't had a blue screen within the 5 or 6 days since reinstalling windows 10. And before the reinstall, I did run ddu and even uninstalled AMD adrenalin software completely. It seems reinstalling Windows 10 seemed to do the trick. I also bought myself this video card https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-radeon-rx-6800-xt-gv-r68xtgaming-oc-16gd/p/N82E16814932381?Item=N82E16814932381 and I plan on moving my parts into a different case while at some point also replacing the CPU. Thanks for the help. I'll let you know if anything comes up.

strange victims

try running Win10 Auto Installation Program (NDIS) under windows header here - https://www.realtek.com/en/component/zoo/category/network-interface-controllers-10-100-1000m-gigabit-ethernet-pci-express-software

I haven't got around to installing it since I've been too busy with work. A lot of memory courrption and I did do a memtest86 last night with four passes with no errors. I'm really starting to hope that thee bsods are the result of my hardware failing. I alos think I need to clean the hardware, which is something I haven't done since April. Plus. I'm going to do cleaning fans + replaceing the thermal paste of my cpu while moving everything else into another case which is a nzxt 510 case from a AeroCool PGS B Series Mechatron-Black Steel Edition Black 0.6 SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case https://www.newegg.com/black-aerocool-pgs-b-series-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811196046 since the mouthboard can't fit into the io shield area properly.

The last 2 could be drivers, both happened after CPU accessed ram and didn't get result it was expecting. This can be caused by drivers giving wrong instructions.

they weren't the same actions:
one happened after CPU accessed ram and was given bad instructions as it tried to access another section of ram it didn't have access to and PC crashed.
In the other it just looked at ram and crashed after that.


Have you taken it to a repair store? they can test another set of ram in PC instead of buying a new set to see if that fixes it.
why do you want hardware to fail?

did you get any software updates just before the last 2 bsod happened?
you had 3 bsod on reports, 2 were the last 3 days and one was on Aug 3 but that was seemingly before you got a new GPU. So might be fixed.

what day did you reinstall windows?
So far, I haven't had a blue screen within the 5 or 6 days since reinstalling windows 10.
I just curious how you have a Dump from August 3 when you clean installed since then?
