Hi Guys,

This is my first attempt at building my own computer so I am not a pro by any means. I've been having issues with blue screens ever since I put it together. All the parts are new out of the box. When I first put the machine together I did some troubleshooting on my own and with a NewEgg tech. The tech couldn't pin point the issue so he advised me to RMA the motherboard and RAM.

I got the replacement motherboard and RAM a few days ago but the issue persists. I am using BlueScreenView to look at my minidump files. Before the RMA I would see "caused by driver" listings for multiple files. Since I got the new parts I am mostly seeing ntoskrnl.exe listed.

I have tried the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool a couple times and it says no errors have been found. I would really appreciate some help. Here are some specs on my machine and the download link to my minidump files. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried a fresh install of the OS?

Yea I did a fresh reinstall. That was before I did the RMA for the replacement parts.

Hey,

Sorry for the delay. I just got done wiping and reinstalling the OS but I am still getting the BSOD. After reinstalling the OS I downloaded and installed just the latest/necessary drivers for my motherboard and graphics card. I got a blue screen shortly after. I then tried installing important windows updated only using windows update. That didn't help either.

I checked BlueScreen View to see what driver caused the crash and "ntoskrnl.exe" is listed for both crashes. Any ideas?

Have you overclocked your CPU at all? If so I would try going into your motherboard's BIOS and running your rig on default settings and see what that does.
