Getting a blue screen of death regularly when gaming! I have posted in another forum as well for help as the issue was originally a different stop code, so I shall link the previous thread just in case anyone would like to see it for any background details!

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 64-bit

There are two folds of the issue, apparently. One is the improper install of the display driver
fffff880`0b785610  fffff880`056cc7bcUnable to load image nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
And the other is the nforce (nvidia chipset) AHCI storage controller. Backdated with no update possibility.
fffff880`06b1d718  fffff880`010e330cUnable to load image nvstor64.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvstor64.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvstor64.sys
First Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
You already have DDU. Uninstall the display driver using it. Also uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    • Geforce experience
  • Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Download the latest WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

  • That is ... install the display driver and PhysX; and nothing else.
Now, Get rid of nforce storage controller.
  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one nvidia/nforce device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all nvidia/nforce items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
See how it goes. Let us know for any further BSOD.
