I have been having this issue for the past month now, My PC blue screens at-least once a day. I have checked all over the internet for solutions and decided to install WhoCrashed. I clicked the "Analyze" button and it says the issue was because of ntoskrnl.exe

Here is the WhoCrashed crash dump analysis:


Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.

Crash dump directories:
C:\Windows
C:\Windows\Minidump

On Sat 02/10/2021 16:17:44 your computer crashed or a problem was reported
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\100221-16156-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x3F71C0)
Bugcheck code: 0xA (0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFD0, 0x2, 0x1, 0xFFFFF8073DC082B6)
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.

I also have another one below that one that says this:
On Sat 02/10/2021 16:17:44 your computer crashed or a problem was reported
crash dump file: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
This was probably caused by the following module: afd.sys (afd+0x5B208)

The crash took place in a Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.



Could I have some help on how to fix this please :)
