Random Driver Related BSOD (ntoskrnl.exe and ntfs.sys)
I get this BSOD every 3 days or so, and when I run WhoCrashed it claims that it is related to the two files mentioned in the title which are apparently driver issues, but all of my drivers are up to date so I really don't know where to start. I don't believe that it's a problem with the memory, as these aren't hardware issues according to the software I used to identify them, they're driver issues, and I recently replaced old faulty memory with working memory that has passed 8 times in MemTest86+ just a few days ago. The actual error messages vary all of the time, the only two I took note of were IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.
Thanks in advance,

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.
How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.
