    BSOD every few hours.


    Hi, ever since I bought this computer in December I've been getting non-stop BSODs and while I merely put it off as a minor annoyance every few hours it's now become a problem where I can't hope to get any work done if my computer randomly shuts off during class. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    In case this is of any help the BSOD's consist of Driver_IRQL_Not_Equal (RTWLANE), DPC_Watch_Dog_Violation, and Page_File_Error_in_non_paged_area (I believe I fixed this issue by resetting my page file).

    No.

    Uninstall Norton then use the removal tool for it. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Automatic and start them too.

    Enjoy.

    Should also update or remove:

    cbfs3 cbfs3.sys Mon Apr 09 09:21:46 2012 (4F82E26A)

    And uninstall Daemon Tool Lite, replace with PowerISO:

    dtsoftbus01 dtsoftbus01.sys Thu Jun 20 03:22:51 2013 (51C2ADCB)

    And uninstall (better) or update software:

    mwlPSDFilter mwlPSDFilter.sys Fri Mar 25 03:12:11 2011 (4D8C404B)
    mwlPSDNServ mwlPSDNServ.sys Fri Mar 25 03:12:13 2011 (4D8C404D)
    mwlPSDVDisk mwlPSDVDisk.sys Fri Mar 25 03:12:23 2011 (4D8C4057)

    And uninstall VPN software:

    tap0901 tap0901.sys Thu Aug 22 08:40:01 2013 (521606A1)
    tapoas tapoas.sys Sun Jul 11 20:31:59 2010 (4C3A627F)

    I believe I've everything here but remove the "mwlPSD" drivers as they are for my fingerprint reader yet I'm still getting bluescreens. I've attached the new diagnostic files.

    BSODs don't care. Update or uninstall.

    If issues persist after one of the two are done, please attach a screenshot of first tab of CPU-Z, one of Memory tab, and one each for each stick of RAM of the SPD tab - along with latest crash dump or simply run the log collector tool again and attach results.

    I believe I've done everything you said and I'm still getting BSOD's. The CPU-Z screenshots are in the zip file.

    Ok, check the motherboard manual to see if there should be sticks only installed by pairs or if an odd number like 3 is actually ok.

    If so, then set the VDMIMM (RAM voltage) manually to 1.4V and see if that helps some.

    If you need other things to go on, remove Razer hardware and software, to test.

    Same for Saitek:

    SaiBus SaiBus.sys Tue Apr 16 13:17:23 2013 (516D87A3)
    SaiMini SaiMini.sys Tue Apr 16 13:17:23 2013 (516D87A3)

    Tap drivers are still on the system, although they show as unloaded. Best to remove entirely.

    How would I go about setting the ram's voltage? I would assume through the bios on first thought but I'd rather be safe than sorry. This is a laptop I should mention.

    Yes, in bios, if it has the ability.

    I don't have the option to change the ram voltage in my bios sadly. Would the problem be fixed if i either re-seat the ram or get new ram cards?

    Can only say that RAM is defective if all suspect drivers are gone.
