I need help. Starting this weekend, my PC has been crashing. Originally I had three driver crashes (two dmp files linked below). I updated drivers, etc. and tried to force it to happen again by doing the same thing I was doing when it crashed those times, but it won't give me the BSOD screen or crash file anymore. My screen goes black, and won't reboot or anything. Now, my event viewer shows the below error:

I have tried running SFC, DISM, and Mem Diagnostic Tool. I have run hardware troubleshooter, I have checked voltages in bios, I have performed a repair of windows, as well as a clean install. I have removed old Nvidia drivers and reinstalled them. I have checked for windows updates and am up to date. My BIOS is up to date. I have used older and newer GPU drivers. I have disabled FastStart for windows. I have adjusted the Nividia control panel settings. Nothing helps, and everything is up to date and reading healthy and good. I am at my wits end. I am a graduate student conducting research and I can't use a computer that keeps crashing. Please help.

Ok, say that the Windows OS is supposedly in fully working order and no bad software is affecting your computer, we need to start somewhere, normally to perform those test that doesn't require physically changes (e.g. remove or swap components).

Therefore - I'd like you to test if RAM is working consistently. You should use a tool called Memtest. This tool can be found at the boot menu in most Linux ISO images, such as Linux Mint.
Do this:
  • Download Linux Mint iso file (or whatever bootable media containing Memtest)
  • Flash the iso file to a usb stick (all contents get wiped in the process)
  • Boot the computer with the usb stick, select memory test (actual name of menu may change, but usually is "memory test", "memtest" or similar).
  • Let it run for an extended period of time, preferably overnight.

DWM.exe is shown to be the faulting app. Google dwm.exe and try some of the fixes mentioned there.

That was literally the first thing I did. I ran SFC, DISM, CHKDSK, MemTest in BIOS. All temps are well within normal range, with my GPU and CPU both hovering around 40C when in usage. I did the windows repair process, and when that didn't work I did a fresh install of Windows. No dice.

40c for the CPU and GPU when in use? Are you using any liquid cooling? Do you live in a very cold climate?
