If it gets an error you can stop it.

So 10 hours of testing later, 8 passes and 0 errors.
So I guess that means it's not a problem with the ram.

OK, we'll try this, I just hope it will create a dump file. Just be sure to create a restore point before enabling Driver Verifier.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
information   Information

What is Driver Verifier:
It puts stress on the drivers, and therefore it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.


How we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit slow and sluggish.
warning   Warning

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there are no Restore points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


Tip   Tip




Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Now I really have no idea whats going on.
But I followed the steps you said, created the restore point, ran the verifier, shut down, started up again and since then, I haven't got a single BSOD, even playing things like Dota which were massive crash creators before. I don't understand.
I'm not complaining, but I don't understand.

If it's still going strong by friday, I'll mark this as solved.
Thank you for all your help Essenbe.

I agree. Driver Verifier is designed to make it crash. There should be no way it keeps it from crashing. It is putting extra stress on all the drivers you selected.

Ok, just got a BSOD but there isn't a file in the minidump folder.
Would it have put it somewhere else with Verifier running?

No, it should be in the minidump folder.

Well, sadly not, the minidump folder is empty.
I guess if it's only going to crash once every 5 days or so, it's probably good enough.
