Also, I just noticed in your first BSOD pick there is pretty serious artifacting going on there on the screen. Are you getting that regularly? That could for sure be a sign of either an improperly installed or dying GPU.
No, I haven't tried yet. I'm hoping I wont have to, but I have backed up my files in the event that I do. However, I'd like to know if my Gpu is failing first, if so I'll just buy a new one and hopefully not have to wipe everything.

The first BSOD pick was taken with my iPhone, the computer itself doesn't look like that.

Try to test your GPU before buying a new one, see my previous post for testing.

Just tried to install and run Furmark, it says "Could not initialize ZoomGPU. Furmark startup failed. Bye!"


Also looking at BlueScreenView, it says that all of my BSOD were caused by dxgkrnl.sys, address dxgkrnl.sys+5d134. And dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys and nvlddmkm.sys are all in red.

If you have a partition on your hard drive you can use, just do that. Just install windows on a separate partition and see if it works. If it does, just wipe the other (your current) install and bring all those backed up files over.

My opinion would be to just go for it.

Your stuff is backed up. Windows takes what? 25 min to install if you make a bootable usb? Go for it.

I wouldn't yet try a reinstallation, please run the dm log collector and upload a new zip for analysis.

Here is DM Log, I did notice that it failed to copy the Mini dump file because it couldn't find it for some reason....I did recently run CCleaner again, maybe it deleted it?

It seems there are no dump files, however last few crashes are 0x116 while others are 0x7A and 0xF4 which usually point to hard drive problems.
Please follow below instructions carefully.

Please uninstall AVG while troubleshooting and replace it with MSE
AVG - Uninstall Completely

Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.
  1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
  2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
    • Double click the executable to open it
    • Click on the button shown below

If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

 System File Check

Please try following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Currently running Seagate tests, hard drive passed the 2 short tests, still working on the long test. However, the program kept showing errors regarding logs.

SPTD didn't detect anything after removing Avg and Daemon tools. System file check didn't detect any issues either.
