    As my title says it all ...... no idea why these random Black Screens are happening ....... I can be using my computer for HOURS or 15min and a RANDOM black screen will happen. EVERYTHING is unresponsive even the main power button. I have to pull the power
    cord to shut the computer down and restart. As i type this letter I am nervous that i will not finish before a RANDOM BLACK SCREEN happens!!!!!!

    Running Windows 10 for a few months with no problem. Now getting a black screen and then Bsod with error message unexpected store exception. System does not reboot but hangs on Bsod. If I reboot I get a brief 30 seconds or so, time where it appears to
    run normal then the screen goes black and I have to reboot manually but the same thing keeps happening. No recent software changes. Help please.

    I'm sorry,
    Attached (I've trying debugging the kernel myself after the crashes, no luck so far, I have also added a few watchdog memory dumps).

    For anyone having it, the issue is in Windows 10 itself, because of a security update Microsoft released with interferes with the x79 and x99 chipsets, I hope this will be fixed in the next big update (going to be released next week).

    Nimce, a tip for future posts. Break it up into sentences and paragraphs. What you wrote is very, very hard to read.

    Yeah, I did break it,
    but for some reason, it didn't go well (and I couldn't edit it), probably because I wrote it in notepad first and Copy-Pasted it...

    Thanks for the advice anyway.

    That's a bummer about the video card. That's an expensive piece of fairly high-end equipment. No response from Nvidia or ASUS or Microsoft on a fix.

    If all the people who bought one started returning it to ASUS (ROG version) I'll bet they could put some pressure on MS to fix it.

    Actually I've tried a few GPUs, from different vendors:
    EVGA GeForce GTX 970
    ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 (this one)
    And they all behaved exactly the same.

    When posting using notepad the best method is to post anything then edit and then past whatever you want into the thread. It's an extra step or two but it then keeps it in the layout posted.

    Maybe you can start with the information entered again so that other viewers can read and add to the troubleshooting.

    The event log was empty.
    The windows error reporting was empty too.

    The uninstall.txt is missing.

    So you have software in use that is deleting the logs.
    Please identify the software and un-check the feature to delete the logs.
    Many times this Ccleaner but each software needs to be checked to make sure that you can maintain all of the logs while troubleshooting.
    Please post a new zip so that the event log can be troubleshooted:
