Solved BSOD after 10 minutes when not using the computer

Update: ALMOST solved
I managed to uninstall the "Killer e2200 Gigabit ethernet controller" drivers (I only had to enter safe mode) and the BSOD issue seems to be solved.
The last thing to do is to check if it was caused by buggy drivers, or by a real hardware issue, because it's still under warranty. How could I check that?

Last saturday I was using the computer and Geforce Experience updated itself. It asked me to reboot the machine but I told it I would do it later. I went away and some hours later it installed some windows updates.

More hours later it throwed a BSOD (and auto-rebooted) about every eleven minutes. Since then, I can use the computer without any problem, but if I let it unotuched for 10 minutes, I get a BSOD and a reboot.

My guess is that something goes low-power after 10 minutes and causes a BSOD. However, in my energy profile there isn't anything set to go low-power after 10 minutes. I have screen and HDDs going into power-saving mode after 20 minutes, but that is all.

I've uninstalled the nVidia drivers because I've had a long experience with buggy drivers (lately they seem to be quite stable, however) but didn't work.

I've also disabled the GeForce Experience without luck, and have tried removing some hardware that gave me issues in the past.

I've had memtest86+ running for almost a whole day with no issue.

The error usually is SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION but sometimes it's DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL instead
WinDbg blames NDIS.SYS but I don't think that's right.

I hope someone can help me, because I don't know what to do next.

Update: As it always references NDIS.sys, I've tried to uninstall all my network-related drivers. My Motherboard includes a "Killer e2200 Gigabit ethernet controller", which I don't use (only WIFI). I had the device disabled, and when I tried to uninstall it (removing drivers) I got a BSOD. I guess this is the culprit but I don't know how to uninstall these drivers.
