    This is the critical error That is randomly in RH. Has this happened to anyone else since update?

    Creators Foreground.wav-Critical-Stop beeps every few sec. Event 10.


    You may be able to find what's causing this to be generated using Sysinternals ProcMon (from MS)

    E.g.
    windows - Critical Error sound playing at seemingly random intervals for seemingly no reason - Super User

    You can also try a basic process of elimination.
    Does it occur if you do a clean boot, for example?

    Try noting the precise time it occurs, then see if you can correlate that with your event log.

    These tests didn't take long. Perhaps I missed a checkbox?

    Also good to mention, I always get this message when starting " Samsung Magician":

    I installed the SSD drive during Christmas 2016. I tried different drivers etc, but this message always came back.
    As my PC worked perfectly at that time, I let it rest in the end and used the lastest microsoft driver that windows update installed.

    As to the steps in post #22. I did not yet executed these steps, so I cannot give you an update just yet.
    I hesitate a bit, because they seem to bring me in a new level of computer repair&analysis - into an area that is new to me. A bit out of my "comfort zone", and I need time to familiarize myself with these enhanced steps, so that I feel myself capable enough of doing them, without fearing to screw up my PC. Please give me some time for this. getting frequent random BackgroundTaskHost.exe critical events :) I will try to do this during this weekend.

    I also didn't come round into doing steps 10 and 11 from post #8. Should I still do these?

    Frequent and random appearing BSOD 'internal power error'.


    Update:
    I did steps 6 and 7:

    BIOS reset. I choose the 'optimized defaults':

    And then I did steps 8 through 11.

    Next step is the memtest86+. I created a bootable DVD, and tested if it works. (It does.) I plan these memory-tests the coming nights.
    However, I can't see how I can test every SDRAM module separately. How do I do that?

    (NB: After closing my game yesterday, I got the first BSOD in weeks, with a (new) message: "reference by pointer".)
