  • You should use WinDBG to analyze the dump file and provide us those additional details

  • That could be anything from hardware to driver problems. Check for temp, power, ram errors and updated drivers (especially GPU if you use that for encoding) first, then start switching out components one at a time.

  • Monitor your temperatures when encoding using something like HWMonitor. If you can reliably make it crash at a certain temperature then it's probably a temperature issue. If not then your power supply might be failing and cannot deliver consistent power to run your computer at full-tilt. How old is your computer? What hardware does it have? Is it clean? Is your Windows installation fairly bug-free or do you get random error messages that you ignore?

Overheat or under-power. Really hard to tell the difference on so little info. If you're software encoding, overheat is more likely. If GPU, that increases the possibility of under-power, but doesn't remove that it's still overheat.

First step would be to take it apart & clean out the dust bunnies.
If you're over-clocking anything, revert to defaults & let the system manage its own throttling.
