I have been getting random BSOD's for a year now. Yes I know, why didn't I come here sooner? I can't seem to figure out the Issue. I even did a clean install of windows a few months ago to see if it would stop. It hasn't. I get them randomly during random activities. It can happen while my computer is idling, playing various games, browsing the internet, etc. Anything. I am sure there is some sort of log I need to post but I don't know what or where it is. If so please let me know and I will get it for you. I started writing the codes down over the last week. For the ones I was around for here are the codes in order.

System_thread_exception - RTKVHD64.sys
KMODE_Exception_not_handled - KS.sys
Driver_IRQL_not_lesser_or_equal - RTWLane.sys
Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area - win32kfull.sys
KMODE_Exception_not_handled - dxgkrnl.sys
system service execptiom - usbaudio.sys

  • Well, it's clearly a hardware problem then. When you get a BSOD, it generates the dump files. Could you upload some of the dump files somewhere? – DrZoo Nov 29 '16 at 18:07

    if multiple reinstalls don't fix it (especially with different install media), then the issue is either bad driver software (check to make sure you are downloading the latest drivers from the manufacturer) or you have a hardware problem. In my experience, when a motherboard dies, it exhibits the kinds of behavior you are describing. – Frank Thomas Nov 29 '16 at 18:08
  • I agree with others, this is a hardware problem, start troubleshooting. If you're getting multiple BSODs about varying drivers, services, and files (etc.) a good place to start with is making sure everything inside is clean and staying cool, followed by testing your RAM. There's lots of documentation and questions about how to do that, here on SU. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 29 '16 at 18:21
  • Definitely a hardware issue. My first hunch is an overheating processor. – Charles Burge Nov 29 '16 at 19:46
  • I have the latest drivers. I posted specs above. Everything in this computer is less than 9 months old. I posted a link to google drive with the dump files. Everythings dust free and cooling isnt an issue. Tested RAM and came back good. Thank you guys. – Weber Nov 30 '16 at 1:32

Your RAM speed is totally wrong.


You overclcok the RAM and run it with 933MHz while the RAM only supports 888MHz. Go to the BIOS/UEFI and change the RAM speed to 888 MHz.

  • Will do thank you. I never set it that way so it must be a weird default or something. – Weber Nov 30 '16 at 16:54
  • It was running on auto. It gave me a drop down and the closest selection was 800. Now my DRAM Frequency is showing 400MHz. That cant be right? – Weber Nov 30 '16 at 17:01
  • look for a setting called 1866. KHX 1866 10D3 is 1866MHz RAM. But this is OC. 800Mhz shows as DDR3 1600, which should be best – magicandre1981 Nov 30 '16 at 17:10
  • I can tell you that when you find a wide variety of BSOD codes and drivers identified in the dumps, it's almost always RAM. Other "system-wide" hardware can do it too, but RAM is by far the most common culprit in these cases. And overclocking the RAM is a sure way to get it to produce errors. – Jamie Hanrahan Nov 30 '16 at 17:11
  • The Specs for my ram sticks say this : 933MHz fCK for 1866Mb/sec/pin And it is DDR3 1866 – Weber Nov 30 '16 at 17:12
