I've been experiencing frequent BSODs in the past few months occurring at random times. I tried updating my drivers, doing a memtest SFC & CHKDSK scans which did not fix the problem or showed things were normal and there were no file corruptions.

    When the above post was created it was spaced with multiple spaces between each steps. When post your answer was clicked the website rearranged the post to where it was no longer readable. I'd spent a lot of time creating the post. I'm sorry that it was not easy to read. A thread was opened in another thread to ask for website help.
