Hello and Welcome !

Seems like ASUS Kernel Mode Driver for NT has caused the crash i would recommend to uninstall any Asus related softwares like Asus Smart doctor etc. and make sure EIO.sys is removed from Drivers folder. To access that folder go to Start | Run | Drivers.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
