    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Some of your minidumps crash with a bug check of 9C. This means you have some kind of hardware failure.

    0x0000009C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

    This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

    Start by going HERE and following the instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Hi,

    4 minidumps have corrupted module list. Probably the culprit is faulty ram. Run memtest to stress test the ram.
