    Various BSODs about ntoskrnl.exe


    Hello

    Got a new Win8.1 64x PC with specs:
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4440
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P85-D3 P85
    VGA: Gigabyte 2048Mb GF GTX 760 OC GV-N760OC-2GD
    RAM: Corsair DDR3 (CMX4GX3M1A1600C9) 4Gb x2
    SSD: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD1

    Every 1-2 hour when i play any game i got BSOD (attached minidumps)

    What i tried:
    Upgrade every driver i can (even upgraded SSD firmware today)
    Full chkdsk for both SSD and my old HDD (it take about 6 hours)
    Adjusted RAM voltage to 1.65V like it says in specs from standart 1.5V (thought BIOS would do it by itself)
    Memory test for RAM (windows diagnostic util + complete MemTest86 with no errors)



    And it keeps happening

    What else can i do to find a reason?
    Thanks

    EDIT: New minidump
    EDIT2: Another minidump

    How long have you run the memory test ? According to the dump files, you have 4 BSOD's caused by memory corruption and crashed on various processes. Memory test needs to run at least 6-8 hours unless errors occurs before. The first couple of passes do not garantee your RAM is good.

    In addition, for testing purpose I suggest that you uninstall Kapersky completely.

    Just today booted from memtest86 USB and started test with default settings. It take about 5-6 hours to make 4 passes and it ends with 0 error. Should i make more passes?

    Installed it after I realised that those BSODs are not rare crashs. Want to check for malware that can cause memory problems (according to google)

    By any chance did you over clock ? if you did then turn it off.

    1. Double check if the RAM is compatitble with your Mother Board.
    2. Certain board requires you to insert the memory sticks in certain slot if not all 4 are used. In your case, you only use 2 slots.
    3. According to the spec: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-P85-D3 (rev. 1.x) . Your RAM requires 1.5V so where did you read to increase the voltage to 1.65 V ? By increasing the voltage and over time, your RAM will be hotter and can act up.



    EDIT: OK, I saw the spec for the RAM, it requires 1.65V.

    No, i dont overclock anything
    1. Dont really know how to check. Its DIMM DDR3 in 2 channel slots (like 1-3)
    2. On RAM tech specs. Was trying to google any problems about this model and found that it use non standart 1.65V voltage. So i went to BIOS and loaded XMP profile that comes with. But it was only 2 days ago. While i am suffering from BSODs for 2-3 weeks

    The crash was caused by Kaspersky. You did not uninstall Kapersky, did you ???

    BSODs starts long time before i install it (to check for malware). Anyway unistalled it now

    After last crash Kaspersky was unable to start. Some days ago i got a texture bug in Steam-game and BSOD soon. When i rebooted Steam show this game like not installed one. Also after some BSODs i was losing Steam settings

    Looks like something corrupt memory for random. Maybe i should change dump type?

    EDIT: Got BSOD right now, minidump attached to topic

    Anti Virus software is known for causing BSOD. The other BSOD's before might not be related to this. After you uninstall Kapersky (You might have to go to their website to download a special uninstaller in order to remove it completely). Try a couple of commands as followed from the Admin command prompt:
    1. dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    2. sfc /scannow
