    Kernel_security_check_failure - bsod


    Hey everyone,

    I'm having some problems after installing a new motherboard, I did a fresh install of Windows 8.1, updated it via windows update and installed the proper drivers. Everything runs fine except when I play games that I get this BSOD (KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE) and I have to restart computer. I've already checked my cpu and gpu temps and are fine, so perhaps someone could take a look at this and see if they could give me any feedback? I attached a minidump file, Thanks!

    My system:

    Windows 8.1 Pro Updated

    PSU: 725 watts
    CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K (not overclocked)
    RAM: 8 GB DDR3
    GPU: geForce GTX 670 stock gigabyte windforce 2X

    Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):
    Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    MSI Afterburner (along with Riva Tuner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install them immediately! (I saw the driver in the memory dump)

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    GWHid.sys - this driver hasn't been added to the DRT as of this run. Please search Google/Bing for the driver if additional information is needed.

    Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

    The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
    DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.



    Beyond this, as there was only 1 memory dump in the upload, I have these 4 suggestions:
    1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
    2. Get ALL available, Win8.1 compatible updates from the manufacturer's website.
    3. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
    4. If all of the hardware tests pass, then run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings
