Somewhat Random BSODs

  1. Hello,

    I've tried Memtest, chkdsk, and Driver Verifier. I can usually figure out the "simple" reasons for a BSOD. But this one is driving me crazy.

    The common denominator appears to be ntoskrnl.exe per BlueScreenView, but I don't know what to do beyond that.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Rich, what antivirus/anti-malware programs are you using? 400 Watts may be too low for your video card. What is the make and model of the C drive?

    Select the command prompt in all programs, accessories, and right-click, and run as an administrator. Type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. Press the enter key. Let the scan finish

    It might be days or weeks, I suppose, before another BSOD. I'll wait patiently. =)
