i have tride about every thing and my last hope is to come here.
It started around april one month after i upgraded my cpu, motherboard and ram. it has happended about 35 times from what is logged but feels like it has happened more times and happens ranomly. i have cheked ram with memtest86 with no errors so i don't think it is at fault. gpu works fine tested with furmark just to make shure, and dosen't seem to be overclocking related. i tested the cpu but don't remember the program it was some thing on windows already and dinden't seem to be any problems. alla driver that i know of is up to date, i was thinking it could be a corrupt driver tested and dident find any. tested boot drive as well if it could be falty no problems there. got a memory managment bsod not so long ago maby that can narrow things down?

i guessing hal.dll info might be useful so ill post it below.

hal.dll hal.dll+49b91 fffff8057b6b7000 fffff8057b75b000 0x000a4000 0x5c190592 2018-12-18 16:34:58 Microsoft® Windows® Operating System Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL 10.0.18362.752 (WinBuild.160101.0800) Microsoft Corporation C:\Windows\system32\hal.dll

no unfortunate, updating bios can fix these.

update the intel management engine interface driver as well - its 1st under chipset here - https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z390-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_Download/
given 3 of them mention intelppm which is the Microsoft driver for the cpu, it might help

this was the Asus program I was referring to
Aug 22 2012 - AsIO.sys - ASUS Input Output driver http://www.asus.com/
you have the newer one as well
Apr 09 2019 - AsIO2.sys - Asus Input Output driver
see if updating chipset drivers is enough, i know of ways to stop these 2 loading.
you also have an Asus rgb driver loaded as well..

have you got Afterburner installed? I can only guess this is part of it - or its from old PC -

There are 2 drivers that often show up in MCE errors, Hal.dll & ntoskrnl which are both part of windows and are the victims, not the cause of crash.

can you go to c:/windows/minidump
copy the dump files to another folder
upload the copies from new folder to a file sharing website and I see what they show us.

The Asus program might be there even if you didn't install it as Windows sometimes installs it on Asus PC. I have it on mine and I never installed any Asus programs.

Do you have the latest Bios?

Did you do a clean install after swapping CPU/MB as it might be an old driver causing errors.

havent updated bios looked at it asus had some sort of app with lots of bad reviews so diden't do it in the end and forgot about it.

havent done a clean install becus its a real hassel to reinstall every thing remembering what apps i had an stuff, and i have reinstalled so many times on this computer i have pritty mutch gotten sick of it. as a last effort i guess :) will chek bios first till u get back to me, thx by the way :)

There is a BIOS update available for your system. You are using version 1302 and the latest is version 1502. The updates improve memory overclocking and system stability. 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.

will do, used afterburner before on the original gpu that was in the pc then i upgraded to a rtx 2080 ti that was on the cheaper side, this was when they came out and so i got whent thru 2 falty ones and then just whent out with the top evga card so use precision x1 now. i had a hard drive with a mirrored windows instalation that i removed and some icons on desktop dissapeard and stopped working afterburner being one of them, guess its still installed.

still havent gotten a bsod so working so far, thanks again :)
