Well, unfortunately I have had more BSOD's. They have occurred once a day for the past three days. 12/17, 12/16, and 12/15. Thank you in advance for helping.

Error code A, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

Error code 1A, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel
See if you can update the following drivers.

Next, I suggest you test your RAM with Memtest86 following the instructions in this tutorial: RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Run Memtest from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a whaile. It will take 6-8 hours to complete 7 passes. Post the results.

I'll update the drivers tomorrow. I have already run a memtest on the system with 4 passes and no errors were found. I did that after my initial post, but I will run the test again and upload the results. I have noticed that the blue screens usually occur when I am browsing the web on Google Chrome. Not all of them do, but majority tend to occur during that process, and not from specific pages either.

Four passes with Memtest is often not enough, most of us here recommend 7 or more passes. I have seen errors not show up until the 12th and 13 passes. Run Memtest from a cold boot after you computer has been off for an hour or two. It will take Memtest 6-8 hours to run 7 passes.

Monitor the temps of your GPU and CPU while you are browsing the web. Use SpeedFan or CPUZ to monitor. Let's see if you are having an overheating problem.

I am still running memtest. It has been running for over 12 hours and is almost done with the 7th pass, with no problems thus far. I will let it run overnight and see if i can get the 14th or so pass, just to be safe. I have 8 GB.

I have coretemp installed to monitor temps and the highest i can get my cpu up to is 45 C while gaming, I usually stay around 32-35 C when doing general things like browsing the web. I don't know about the GPU. I'll monitor it on PC Probe and the CCC, and CPUz or speedfan. I checked the CCC to make sure the fan on the graphics card is to auto-adjust, I could manually bump it up though.

Just keeping you updated.

Memtest results

I attached an image with the results of the test. I ran it for 17 passes.

I believe the driver, AsUpIO.sys, which is out of date, belongs to PC Probe. This utility has caused problems for some folks. You might try renaming AsUpIO.sys from .sys to .old and then reboot. This will break PC Probe; but you will be able to determine if the driver is contributing to your BSOD's or not. You can always rename it again.

Your RAM is probably OK given the results of Memtest. It also appears that you do not have an overheating problem with the CPU. Do check the temps of your CPU.

OK. Thank you very much for your help. I will uninstall PcProbe and rename the file if any still exist after the uninstall, as well as updating the drivers. I will report back if I have any problems again, or in a week, whichever comes first. Maybe the issue will be resolved.

If you rename the file, you won't have to uninstall PC Probe. You can see if that driver not loading helps. If it does not, you can simply rename the driver again and PC Probe will work again.

Ok. I got another BSOD this morning as I was modifying the files (MEMORY_MANAGEMENT). I went ahead and just uninstalled all ASUS software. I do not use any of it anyway. I looked for an update for the chipset, but there isn't one. =(

I have been monitoring my temps of my GPU and it appears to be staying around 49 C idle and 62-65 C under load. The fan is running at about 20-25%. If I bump the fan up to about 40% the temps drop to 51 C under load.
