BSOD 10 minutes into any game fresh install

I'm pretty sure I have all drivers up to date

I hope I uploaded the DM log properly

Thanks for the help

BSODs caused by your Etron USB 3.0 driver. Download and install the latest version.

BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff8801302cead, fffff88006eb73f8, fffff88006eb6c50}

Probably caused by : EtronXHCI.sys ( EtronXHCI+8ead )

Your Gigabyte Easy Saver driver is causing issues, remove the software altogether.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for gdrv.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for gdrv.sys
Probably caused by : gdrv.sys ( gdrv+30c7 )
Do you have any other Gigabyte bloatware installed?
If so then remove at as it can cause a lot of issues.

If you are unsure whether you think it's important then let us know before removing it.

The only bloatware that are left are "ON_OFF Charge" and "@BIOS"

are these essential?

Well non of them are essential but ON OFF charge I recommend removing.

@BIOS is useful to update your BIOS but it's not necessary.

I recommend removing them for testing purposes.

Use Revo Uninstaller to software that can cling to your computer. Use Advanced Mode to remove leftover registry entries:

Ok. I've removed all gigabyte bloatware and scanned and deleted junk files using revo uninstaller. I'm still having BSODs

There are no new dump files.
Check in C:/Windows/minidump for any new Small Memory Dumps
Check in C:/Windows/memory.dmp to see if you have a new Kernel Memory Dump

If you have had new Small Memory Dump(s) then copy it/them to the desktop, compress it in a .zip folder and upload directly to Seven Forums in your next reply.

If you have a new Kernel Memory Dump then copy it to the desktop, then upload it to a file sharing site like OneDrive, make sure it's unzipped though.

If you have checked both and nothing you can either leave it and wait for another BSOD that will hopefully be written or run Driver Verifier that will hopefully find the driver responsible and write a new dump file.

Enable driver verifier but only enable the options: Standard settings and IRP logging step 3.
Don't enable Force Pending I/O Requests

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.

information   Information

We use Driver Verifier as it puts a stress on the drivers, and so it makes the unstable drivers crash. This should flag the driver responsible in the dump file.

Driver Verifier will make the system laggy, this is normal so don't worry.

Before enabling DV, make sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer.

If there are no points, make a System Restore Point Manually

Post back the results.
