(Doing my best to get this message up quickly for fear that my PC is going to BSOD on me again)

Hello everyone. I am currently trying my best for figure out why my near 6-month old PC keeps giving me BSOD and random freezing issues.

For the past several days, my PC has been crashing randomly with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes it will crash when I'm playing a game. Sometimes it will crash when I'm watching some streamers on Twitch.TV while using Firefox. And sometimes it will just crash while it is completely idle!

Some of the BSODs I have gotten will include: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION w/ win32kfull.sys as the failed module, DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR .

So far as I check the internet for solutions, all the guides available for correcting the situation include...

*Update windows 10
*Update your drivers
*Run memory diagnostic
*Run disk check
*Disable overclocking
*Run System File Checker

And i have basically did all of this to various degrees and still haven't found a working solution.

I have updated windows 10 with the latest patches
I have uninstalled both my Nvidia drivers and Realtek audio drivers using DDU before reinstalling the driver to the latest version.
I have ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Test and found no issues
I have ran CHKDSK several times and found no issues
Even though I have never attempted overclocking on this PC yet, I have reset my BIOS settings to make sure that there was no overclocking set.
I updated my motherboard's firmware to the latest version.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled all Intel HDD software made for my motherboard vis MSI's official support page.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Realtek and Nahimic software to their latest versions.

As suggested by another user, I have tried using DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command to fix corrupted files and found no issues.
Also suggested: I tried running sfc /scannow to search for corrupted system files and found no issues.

Here is a link to my recent crash: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oex7odidq3gadkw/013020-26468-01.dmp?dl=0

According to WhoCrashed:

crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\013120-42328-01.dmp

Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

I will post more details regarding my issue, but for now I am going to post this up now and get the discussion started before I get another BSOD again!

Well I think I figured out what was causing my PC to BSOD like crazy... It was a bloody windows update!



One other user had the same problems as me!

https://www.reddit.com/r/windows/comments/evhx7b/_/fg8900g View: https://www.reddit.com/r/windows/comments/evhx7b/is_update_kb4532695_safe/fg8900g/

If you are on Windows 10: Do NOT download this update! If you have this update and are experiencing problems, remove it IMMEDIATELY!

Trying to uninstall the update was a pain. It would just refuse to be uninstalled. So I had to jump through a bunch of hoops to try and remove it... And ended up causing my PC to go into an infinite safe mode boot loop, which forced me tor resetmy PC for a second time.

Needless to say, I kinda hate Windows 10 now.

For one thing, try gaming with no other apps running (no browsers or apps minimized/hidden as just icons in the task bar). See if it still happens as frequently. I've had issues with chrome and/or BOINC causing BSODs - I've stopped running those and the BSODs have pretty much gone away for me.

Update: Just had another crash today. This time with hardware.sys. Happened out of nowhere while just browsing my PC files.

2 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

hardware.sys

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination with the errors that have been reported for these drivers. Include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions on the web by users who have been experiencing similar problems.

Sorry for the late reply. I recently decided to just reset my PC to see if the BSODs would stop. But I just had my first BSOD since Friday night. This is starting to get very frustrating for me.

On Sun 2/2/2020 8:00:45 PM your computer crashed or a problem was reported
crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP
This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!memset+0x8052C)
Bugcheck code: 0xFC (0xFFFF8484B7EE5290, 0x8A0000014A4009E3, 0xFFFFF1856810F460, 0x3)
Error: ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY
Bug check description: This indicates that an attempt was made to execute non-executable memory.
This may be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules. Memory corruption can also occur because of overheating (thermal issue). There is a possibility this problem was caused by a virus or other malware.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

Does anyone have any possible ideas? Despite resetting my PC and swapping my OS drive to a brand new SSDs, I'm still getting random blue screens. I keep getting different blue screen errors and have no clue what the root cause could be. I have attempted so many different methods to try and correct the situation but nothing is working. I'm losing too many days of productivity and play time at this point.

Did microsoft have an issue with a recent OS update that is causing these blue screens? I never had so many problems like this five months ago. Also the BSOD errors are so different nearly each time that it's hard to pinpoint any culprits.
