[SOLVED] Multitude of Bsod's, frequent crashing browser tabs

My pc is one I built myself about a year and a half ago. Starting about 6 months back or so, I started getting random bluescreens. More recently these have become more frequent to a painful degree. The Bsod screens have a pretty wide variety, such as but not entirely limited to:
Page fault in non paged area
Attempted execute of noexecute memory
Kernel auto boost invalid lock release
irql not less or equal
kmode export not handled
system service exception
Multiple irp complete requests.
and sometimes the machine just freezes or goes black
When it does mention something failing, it's usually afd.sys or I believe ndis.sys

I have tried updating basically everything in device manager through device manager, as nothing flags as problematic. I've tested my ram via the windows mem test with no results and went the extra mile of swapping my 4 diff sticks around and it persists regardless of what sticks are where. I've swapped my gpu despite no thinking that would be the issue. I've done multiple clean installs of windows. I even broke down and sent the pc off to be fixed at a local repair shop, and the problem persists, I also tried replacing the psu leaving only the motherboard, ssds, and cpu as possible hardware issues. The pc shop said they went to the manufacturer's site and got drivers for everything but idk how thorough it was.

The crashes are not consistent at all, it can happen instantly or take 20 minutes or hours(rarely), but it always comes back. If it matters, when chrome's tab crash it says status access violation.

Specs are
Amd ryzen 5 3600x
gigabyte x570 aorus elite
4x8gb ddr4 corsair vengeance ram
msi gefore rtx 2080 super
evga supernove 750 g+
ssd1 samsung 860 qvo 1tb
ssd2 samsung 970 evo 1tb

I will try getting mini dump files on a follow post or edited into this but want to get this post up before it crashes once again.

Edit: https://mega.nz/folder/aMwySAQD#DP0DLmNvj5g5yihsEqXSBw miniDump files can be found here, I only have the last few though.

I don't suppose you have a WIFI dongle?
4 of the crashes all crashed Firefox, and mention afd.sys
3rd crash isn't the same. I cannot tell what caused it.

directx would lead me to believe it was GPU drivers, if last crash mentioned it.

crashes that blame different parts make me think its ram. but as you swapped sticks before and it still occurred.. it might not be the sticks or you really unlucky

I would 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

download this and use it to update LAN drivers (I have same motherboard, it has intel lan chips)
https://www.intel.com.au/content/www/au/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html

afd.sys = ancillary function driver for winsock
ndis.sys - Netowrk driver Interface Specification
both are windows files used for network activities.

I sort of guessed it was lan drivers based on Kernel auto boost invalid lock release error, then I saw the 2 file names it mentions and it was obvious.

I will ask a friend to convert dumps, in case it mentions other things too.

I downloaded the tool and it says that no updates are available after scanning my system. Since posting this I've also had it mention dxgmm2.sys, which I know is related to gpu. However I've swapped out the gpu before already and still had crashes.

Hi, I ran the dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://jsfiddle.net/2to8van6/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.

I'm assuming you are using Revision 1.0 of the motherboard. You have the latest BIOS already installed, version F36e.

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

I have tried memtest86, though in pairs not be themselves, it ran over night twice to I believe 10 passes and never got errors. Windows built in one was the same.
I'll get back on the other tests, though I have two ssd's and the crashes persist despite isolating one then the other. Haven't done a cpu test

Today, I got the "memory management" bsod message.

One other note, that I believe is just too reliable to be placebo, if I have a game running (usually something that's a bit midling in how demanding it is, I tend to use dark souls 3) the number of crashes I get is MASSIVELY reduced. Like yesterday I was crashing every 30mins or so, but once I ran ds3 it stayed running for nearly 24 hours straight and only crashed once I closed the game, about 10 mins later. I have no idea what this implies, but it is very odd.

Okay, I think this is pointing me somewhere productive.

The cpu test isn't done, but two of the 6 core's tests have either not ran at all, or returned an error.
