  1. Try updating your graphics card drivers, etc.
    I had this bluescreen and updating my gpu solved the issue
    If still not solved:

    This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high.
    The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.
    If you encounter bug check 0xA while upgrading to a later version of Windows, this error might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.

    you have a generic install of windows 10, all generic drivers.
    you got a bugcheck in memory management in routines that manage mapping and tracking of what is currently loaded into memory.

    This should be caused by memory corruption or a bad driver involving disk storage.

    go to here:http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Fatal1ty%20Z170%20Gaming%20K4/?cat=Download&os=Win1064
    and install the updated drivers.
    there is a new audio driver that could fix corruption issues, and a updated intel storage driver that has the potential to help with storage issues.

    if you have not run memtest86, you will want to run it to confirm your memory system and BIOS settings are ok.

    you have one very old suspect driver installed:
    OpenHardwareMonitor.sys Sat Jul 26 06:29:37 2008 you should remove it. It is too old and could be corrupting system memory.
    (most likely cause of this error, your system was up 21 minutes, intel's driver would not mess up that fast)
