Basically, computer will crash at any random time - usually once a day - sometimes more.
It can happen while randomly browsing the web or while gaming. I can play any game maxed out without issue on the GPU side but sometimes, just browsing the web will make it crash to a BSOD filled with green, vertical lines.

If it helps, I'm using a cheap, low quality television as PC screen, drivers are all updated.
This also used to happen back when I had a GTX 960 - but not with the vertical lines.

Update:Managed to read what was said in the BSOD - IRQL not less or equal - I have a feeling my network adapter (TP LINK TL Wn725N) might be causing this.

Hmm Please go to the windows error logs and post them for the days that the crash happened here is how

Open Event Viewer: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.
In Event Viewer, in the console tree, click Application.

Look for any references to any hardware and post them here. Did you upgrade to windows 10 from say windows 8.1?
