    8.1 BSOD on screensaver


    Laptop asus g550jk.
    When screen goes black due to inactivity or when I turn it off manualy (FN+F7) key i receive BSOD with "kernel security check failure". This started happening in last 3 days. In this time i have installed GTA5 and updated skype. Also windows is up to date.
    Memory has been checked few months ago, so I suspect faulty driver. What should I do in this case? Can anyone determine source from dump file I posted.

    dmp.zip :: Free File Hosting - File Dropper: File Host for Mp3, Videos, Music, Documents.

    edit: Nvidia game driver has also been updated recently.

    Kernal huh?Well to sort it out Where did you Download GTA5 (Cause if it was torrented it could be a hidden virus) and was your Windows update successful? Also i would check how much memory you have.Also make sure your drivers are all up to date.

    Hi Niprobema & welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I will post an analysis soon. Are you facing this problem with GTA V only? Asking because I am seeing quite a few threads here which are having the same problems with GTA V.

    Gta copy was downloaded from genuine server and installed with correct key. I am having absolutely no problem what so ever running gta5. Also computer works fine during work. So why does it bothers me? When I go for example to the bathroom I come back to restarted computer with my work lost.

    BDOS can be replicated 90% of time:
    -I turn the screen output off(fn+f7)
    -Inactivity for a while (like 5-10 min at minimum, i havent counted exactly)
    The other 10% when i cant replicate it for sure with any method above is when computer is freshly booted.
    -Also it happened one time when I tried to wake computer from sleep. It crashed b4 login screen.


    What I have done so far:
    -memcheck
    -disk operations check
    -cpu burn
    -rollback game drive

    Nothing indicated any problem and issue remains.

    One thing that I forgot to mention is that PhysiX and nvidia Geforce experience were updated together with game driver. I will try clean reinstall later.
    I will attempt to verify all drivers, which hasn't gone well so far, as it crashes on boot with settings described by microsoft site.
    Another theory is faulty psu, since triggers mentioned above are connected with low usage mode or Idle mode I guess. That's just my guess but I have found no proff that "kernel security check failure" could be caused by psu.
