    OK, at least we're getting somewhere... From the Elevated Command Prompt, Change Dir to Desktop then type:

    findstr /C: "[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt

    You should have sfcdetails.txt on Desktop. Use notepad to open it and find out what files that sfc trird to repair.

    Sometimes you need to re-run sfc /scannow several times if necessary until you get a message: Windows did not find any integrity violation.

    Also, try to run it in safe mode.

    okay, it now says "Windows did not find any integrity violation"

    should this be the end of it or is there more to look at? I really appreciate your time.

    One more thing that you should do is to run chkdsk C: /f /r from elevated command prompt to make sure your hard disk is healthy. This process will take a while so before you go to sleep, let it run.
    Keep using Windows for a few days and see if you have anymore BSOD.
    Please report back if it's fixed and please mark "SOLVED".
    Cheers

    woke up to the same issues today. DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION followed by IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and a couple more restarts, now everything is normal. i have no idea what to look at.

    Can you re-up the new zip with the latest BSOD ?

    hey sorry it's been a couple days. it looks like the motherboard had a bad DIMM slot on it. both modules were testing fine but the one slot was causing the issues. i found this after formatting the drive and trying to reinstall the OS. i put a new mobo in today (ASRock) and everything seems to be working perfectly.

    thank you for your help.

    Hmm... That's what I suspected on the 2nd post of this thread but you said the memory test passed.
    Anyway, I am glad you got the problem solved.

    Please Mark solved. Thanks
