BSOD when i navigate with Chrome

Hi, i'm new on this forum and i wish u can help me.
I'm french, so sorry for my english.

I recently install a noctua nh-u12p se2 on my computer and i have some BSOD now.
I don't know if the problem is hardware or software because i didn't install any program.

The blue screen says :

"A device driver attempting to corrupt the system [...] and then select safe mode"
Technical information : *** STOP 0x000000C4 [...]""

I'm trying to make an avast scan and a malwarebytes scan.

tx for your help.

I believer there's been a recent problem with Nvidia drivers that has been piling in. I'm still researching on it but so far it seems too consistent to be coincidental. Nvidia has deployed what I believe to be a hotfix version of their driver recently this month. Install it and see if it does the trick. You may wanna uninstall it and install the latest version just to be sure.


Same as other recent issues. Nvidia driver is causing stack trashing due to possibly some sort of buffer overflow. In this cause it looks to be caused by a recursion loop:

0: kd> !analyze -v
*                                                                             *
*                        Bugcheck Analysis                                    *
*                                                                             *

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
    the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
    mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.

This version of the driver is actually older than the ones I've been coming across lately (Dec 28/29) but it's still well within the same time range. I think it's a recent issue with 310.xx drivers. Again, still researching.

Seems just coincidental. Btw, I'm finding that the latest driver may not actually fix the problem, but I still recommend you try it. It may be necessary to rollback the driver prior to 310.xx driver version, as that's when the problem has initially started for people.

Same issue, and for some reason the driver still says it's from Dec 29. You may need to do a complete uninstall/reinstall, and perhaps even need to try out their beta driver to see if that fixes the issue. My research so far has found that the 310.xx series Nvidia drivers have been quite unstable lately and a lot of people have been recommending rolling back to 306.xx series. Some have had success with the 306.93 version. Try dabbling in those as well to see if it remedies your issue. Suffice to say, it is indeed the Nvidia driver, make no mistake about that. The question is, how long has the bug been around? Again, people have been saying since 310.xx, but you'll have to experiment a bit to find out.
