I have an acer laptop(AMD Processor) with dual boot configuration of windows 10 and ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I tried booting windows 10 last night and i got blue screen with kernel security check failure. Till now i have tried restarting multiple times and i got different errors like : ATTEMPTED TO WRITE TO READONLY MEMORY, PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA, IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. Its the same with ubuntu, i get kernel panic not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt on boot.
- I have tried using different kernel versions for ubuntu, doesn't work.
- I tried going into safe mode using F8 key, nothing happens. Ubuntu's recovery mode also gives kernel error.
- I have done memtest, it passed.
- I tried booting Ubuntu 17.10 using USB, it still gives me kernel error.
I haven't done any recent updates in windows or Ubuntu. The most i did was clean install new AMD graphic drives and multiple Vulkan api installs, a week ago.
Do you i have any suggestions what else can i try, or if the problem is most likely the hardware. What should i look into hardware wise?
