    Hi Arc,

    Thanks for taking your time to try and help me, it is very much appreciated.

    The SSD is running the latest 211 firmware updated through the Sandisk Toolkit.

    I am using the onboard SATA controller which on this motherboard is the AMD SB850.
    I installed the AMD AHCI driver rev 13.1 as recommended in many forums and SSD issue threads.

    During troubleshooting i opened my case to unplug the SSD to try and rule it out as an issue.
    Upon doing so, I noticed a label on my dram saying working voltage is 1.6v.

    I checked in BIOS and for some reason only had the voltage set to 1.5V.

    The system seems to be running better now, did some things that triggered BSOD's before without missing a beat now.

    Does that sound like it could have been the only issue all along to you?

    Jamie, I must to say that a job well done! Now observe the situation .... if the BSODs come back or not.

    Using the onboard controllers are always the good idea, as they are the least troublesome. And, if you are sure that SSD is having the latest firmware, that is also very good Reading your earlier posts, I got a hint that it is a new installation, which is almost a vanilla .... so some chance of a backup tool or antivirus (they also can do it, for sure) is also negligible, I think?

    After adjusting the voltage, it should work fine; though all your todays crash dumps resulted a stop 0x50, so it is difficult to say that it is the only issue.

BSOD: Seemingly random during use (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)
Hello, Have repeatedly gotten BSOD while in use. Usually not while playing games, but browsing the web or working out of excel. Sager NP8265 (Clevo P150SM) 16GB Ram W8.1 64-bit i7-4700MQ Ran a BlueScreenViewer and seems ntoskrnl.exe+ 150aa0 is a major culprit along with hal.dll.
