-unexpected kernel mode trap
-kernel security check failure
-irql not less or equal
-page fault beyond end of allocation
-clock watchdog timeout
-system thread exception not being handled
What I have already tried to find the cause:
-updated the BIOS with the latest firmware
-made a clean install of Win10 twice and installed and updated all drivers (three times if you count the initial install)
-ran memtest for 10 hours with 5 passes
-reseated both the GPU as well as the memory
-ran 3dmark stresstest for my GPU (with all valid results)
-ran S.M.A.R.T. on my SSD
-disconnected the SSD completely and made a new install on my HDD (third time around)
-ran a virusscanner (which passed, but with a new build and clean install, I don't think it's likely that it's a virus or malware)
-disabled fast boot option in Win10
Then it continuously found problems with my drivers. First with all my Nvidia drivers, so I updated these yet again with first completely uninstalling them (using DDU) and installing them again. I thought this would solve the problem, but it didn't.
It seems Verifier is finding problem with pretty much all my drivers. (nvvad64.sys, nvhda64v.sys, nvlddmkm.sys and later iaLPSS2i_I2C.sys and SpbCx.sys). All resulting in a BSOD loop and the last couple of times so bad, that Windows recovery set in, deleting all of my previously stored minidump files.
My specs are:
Motherboard: MSI B150M Bazooka
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
RAM: 2x Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 Ballistix Sport
Processor: Intel Core i5-6600 3.3Ghz
PSU: Cooler Master GM G550M 550 Watt
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 2,5" 250GB
HDD: Western Digital Blue 2TB
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX970 4GB Gaming
CD/DVD: LG Interne Serial-ATA DVDReWriter
Sorry about this long opening post, but I'm seriously running out of options. I still want to try to take out my GPU and see if the problem persists with my on-board graphics card.
1. I know I have already tried a lot and it might seem like I know what I'm doing, but I'm probably one of the biggest computer n00bs out there, so please keep this into account when replying to me. 8)
2. I would like to mention that the current firmware of my SSD is out of date, but the current firmware for my SSD doesn't seem like an official release from Samsung, there is no change log, so I'm unsure about what it should be doing. Furthermore, it is currently only possible to update the firmware using Samsung Magician Software and I didn't think it would be a smart idea to update the firmware on a system that is unstable.
Also, I think I excluded the option that it might be the SSD when I disconnected it completely and by making a clean install on my HDD and finding out the problem still persists.
Thank you so much in advance!
