View Full Version : BSODs for years

My computer has had blue screens for a long time (maybe 2 years?) and I've tried various fixes with no luck. The blue screens happen the most when I'm trying to push the hardware via video games. Issues manifest themselves in minor ways too like Firefox crashing or any of the more resource intense games crashing and not the entire computer.

I've swapped my primary hard drive for an SSD when the memory management blue screens began to appear many years ago. I did a clean install back in about January, that didn't help. I thought it could be a heating issues so installed a new CPU cooler and additional case fans this summer. Memtest doesn't result in any errors, currently I swapped the RAM locations on the mother board to see if that helps. I try to keep everything up to date and keep it virus free. I've attempted to work with the Microsoft help desk and nobody ever commented on the post after the initial "try a repair of the OS". Here was my original explanation of the issue (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/bsod-hardware-or-driver-issue-irqlnotlessorequal/f1eec3d2-4a8c-4117-8bb6-55288a562557), it became more or a journal to help me remember what happens.

As I continue to learn more about what could be troubling the computer I've looked through many posts on this website, love the knowledge contained within and concluded some driver is acting up. I would love to know what's wrong and how the experts behind this community can figure out what the misbehaving driver is when I have been stumped for so long. I'm genuinely interested in what's wrong and plan on slowly upgrading components on this rig to keep it relevant if it is hardware.

Issue: I can't get the perfmon /report step to stop "collecting data" (see attached screen shot), it just runs like that forever. I've confirmed that cmd was running in admin mode as well.

Going through the perfmon gui I can get a user defined Data Collector Set to run like the system diagnostic report the cmd command would create but then I don't know how to save as an html.
