Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 1A, {41790, fffffa8003d20480, ffff, 0}

Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )

Followup: MachineOwner
According to, STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Usual causes:
Device driver, memory, kernel

In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

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

hmm i found out whats causing it, its not a ram problem. Well it kinda is, my ram slots are very close to my cpu and my cpu fan exhauses all of the heat through the side and as a result it blows all of the hot air directly into one of my ram cards. When i remove that one ram card that is closer the the cpu, everything runs fine and no bdos then i replaced the ram card in the slot further away from the cpu with the ram that was removed from the slot closer to the cpu and it ran fine aswell =\
