  1. PC constantly crashes and freezes, resulting in BSOD, CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, error...


    For the longest time my PC's been randomly freezing, which results typically in almost a dozen BSOD a day, sometimes it takes 4 hours, sometimes 4 minutes. The most common error I get is CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, although sometimes I also get UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION, but that one is rarer.

    Here are my PC specs:

    Windows version: Windows 10 , 10.0, build: 18363
    Motherboard: ASRock, Z370 Pro4
    CPU: GenuineIntel IntelR CoreTM i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70GHz Intel8664, level: 6
    12 logical processors, active mask: 4095
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
    RAM: 68651618304 bytes 63,9GB


    These BSODs have been occurring for quite some time now, I've taken my desktop to two different service stations, but ultimately it still keeps dying. So far I have tried:
    - sfc /scannow, which comes up clean
    - chkdsk, comes up clean
    - dism /online /checkhealth, comes up clean
    - Windows memory diagnostic comes up clean
    - updated drivers for the motherboard from the website, couldn't install 2.
    - updating my graphics drivers and Windows OC.


    I also ran WhoCrashed and this is what came up:

    Conclusion
    5 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. No offending third party drivers have been found. Connsider using WhoCrashed Professional which offers more detailed analysis using symbol resolution. Also configuring your system to produce a full memory dump may help you.


    Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

    Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.



    I also ran BlueScreenViewer and it pointed out that it's caused by 'Driver ntoskrnl.exe', which doesn't tell me much, since it's apparently not a real driver.

    Honestly, I'm not tech-savvy at all, and don't understand most of this, so if anybody could help me out and explain it in basic terms, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    BSOD Error: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

    My laptop experienced a BSOD with an analysis by "Who Crashed" as follows-

    On Sat 11/10/2018 2:08:03 PM your computer crashed or a problem was reported

    crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP

    This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrpamp.exe (nt!PsSetLegoNotifyRoutine+0x46C)

    Bugcheck code: 0xEF (0xFFFFFFFFA8C97440, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0)

    Error: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

    Bug check description: This indicates that a critical system process died.

    There is a possibility this problem was caused by a virus or other malware.

    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: ntkrpamp.exe .

    Google query: ntkrpamp.exe CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

    Following is a link to my "one drive" BSOD folder with memory.dmp and other files for evaluation:

    https://1drv.ms/f/s!AhtpFas_Rp_hiUvPKtxMgmB-b1B5

    Please advise resolution for the said BSOD. Thanx!

    UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION and CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED BSOD appears randomly

    Occasionally when using the computer, it freezes, then the BSOD appears with the UEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION or the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED message. My computer also did not produce any dump files from the crash.
