I'm not a BSOD expert. The experts on this Forum are seriously back-logged helping others. So until one responds to your thread there are a few things to check. First, it would help to know your system specs. Top of each page click User CP and in left column click Edit System Spec. If you aren't sure about the specs a free utility called Speccy will give you everything you need to know.

- Make sure your memory sticks, GPU, etc are seated properly
- If using multiple memory sticks test each stick by itself in slot # 1 (or whichever slot the motherboard manufacturer recommends for a single stick)
- After checking each stick, check each slot
- Check your power management options.
- Check your PSU.
- Use default BIOS setting if you overclock

You could also run a systm file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) It will look for damaged or corrupt system files and try to replace them with the correct versions. If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

If still no luck, you could work through these troubleshooting steps prepared by one of the forum experts. It's time consuming but may help isolate the problem.
