The last month or so I've been getting a lot of blue screens and they are getting worse. The main one is unexpected_kernel_mode_trap, but I've also seen irql_not_less_or_equal a few times. Last night the PC failed to boot a few times then when I got it working it was ok for awhile. Restarted and it did it again then ran fine for about 30 minutes. This morning I was able to start right up then it did it while being on gmail.

I built the PC myself and have upgraded the CPU from an 8700k to a 9900k as well as the GPU from a 2080 TI to a 3090. The machine is mainly just for gaming but issues don't only happen during gaming. The blue screens also seemed to happen some before my upgrades as well.

I honestly have no idea where to even start. I tried turning off all the overclocking (which I don't go very over board on that stuff). But it still seems to be an issue as it did it again while just being in google chrome. Was planning on just doing a fresh install of Windows and starting clean since I know Windows tends to make all kinds of issues with updates and driver errors over time. But not sure if I should be looking at my hardware or not too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

Open Windows File Explorer

Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump

Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop

Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows

Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder

Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)

Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .
