    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Would you like to give us some details of the crashes.

    What kind of crashes are they? Is your computer rebooting/giving you BSOD`s?

    As much info as you can would help.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    All your minidumps crash at ntoskrnl.exe. Windows bootup kernel. They have bugchecks of D1 and 0A.

    0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hdd/pagefile.

    Regards Howard :)
