    BSOD occurring sporadically after upgrading to 8.1

    I have a Dell Studio 1555 which was originally running Windows 7 pro rather slowly. After upgrading to 8GB RAM and putting in new SSD, I tried unsuccessfully to upgrade operating system to Windows 10. Result was frequent BSOD with multiple reasons (IRQ errors, Memory Management etc). I have now installed Windows 8.1 and completed all the updates. I have checked the new RAM using Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and no errors were found. I have checked the new SSD using disk check and it passed finding no errors.

    Updated all drivers using IOBit Driver Booster 3.1,

    In windows 8.1 I still get BSOD occurring, most often during start up after PC has not been on for several hours, occassionally BSOD occurs during use after startup. Some of the errors, each on a different occassion are listed below.

    BugCheck 1A, {41792, fffff6bffec404e0, 6000000, 0}
    Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+1320a )

    BugCheck C2, {9d, 7c, 1, fffff800243ab5bc}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for mfesapsn.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for mfesapsn.sys
    Probably caused by : mfesapsn.sys ( mfesapsn+25bc )

    BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff80260b9bc2a, ffffd00190c1b5e8, ffffd00190c1adf0}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiDemoteCombinedPte+42 )

    BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff80056681cd5, ffffd000241ff7a8, ffffd000241fefb0}
    Probably caused by : rimmpx64.sys ( rimmpx64+4cd5 )

    Any help in identifying if this is caused by one or more Drivers that I need to update would be a great help, or advise on if this may be solvable or whether I should just run windows 7 Pro given the laptop is more than 5 years old.

    Thanks in advance.

    warning   Warning
    Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
    If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

    Only install the drivers your manufacturer provides

    It seems Dell doesn't have drivers for Windows 8 and higher for your laptop, I recommend to revert back to Windows 7.

    A flagged driver is the memory card reader which your manufacturer provides drivers for, because your manufacturer doesn't provide Windows 8 or higher drivers you can't update it to make it compatible.

    Many thanks axe0 for your help and recommendation. Guess I will follow your advice and give up on trying to run this laptop on Windows 8 and stick with Win 7.
