I actually got another BSOD a few minutes after boot, I'll post back when it makes a dump file.

Edit: Error code is 0xC4, still no dump file. My google-fu is failing me when looking up the error code.

A 0xC4 is a DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOALTION STOP. Do you have Driver Verifier enabled? If so, disable it. If you don't then it's possible that the crash was caused by a driver but without a dump there's nothing I can do unfortunately.

I got another blue screen with a different error code. I took a picture just in case it could be useful to you.

Can you run the Log Collector again to see if a mini dump was created.

Unfortunately, none was saved because the blue screen locks up and won't do anything for several minutes. Any blue screen that doesn't freeze usually finishes in a few seconds.

Again this could be a driver trying to write to read-only memory, but without the dump it's impossible to say. There's a possibility it could be RAM but we can rule that out.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note


Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.

I ran memtest86 over 2 nights and it didn't come up with any errors both times. I'm starting to use a temporary solution of simply never turning my computer off for long periods of time since the blue screens only occur after the computer has been off for several hours. I'll just log off and restart it once in a while to prevent possible issues that could arise from leaving it on for long periods of time.

This is just temporary until i get parts to replace what could be causing it and, just to be safe, a clean reinstall of windows.
