68884-ggg.txtSo, I've had my new pc running for about 2-3 weeks now. While gaming one day my PC unexpectedly crashed with a blue screen(will provide event viewer logs below) I found this weird so i made sure my ram,gpu m.2 drivers were seated right etc. This continued to keep happening for multiple days after the 1st event. I was getting multiple different blue screen crashes on top of some weird crashes where my pc would still run just no display. So i decided to save the logs and after trying as few things(reinstalling all drivers, even chipset drivers) i decided to do a fresh install. 2 Days into the fresh install I'm now getting crashes without blue screen and my pc just restarts as if nothing happened. I played Valhiem all yesterday and today without a hitch, but this evening I experienced 4 crashes within an hour. Im wondering if its my PCIe Gpu riser i have installed but before i order a new ridicously expensive riser cable( new case has to have them to get around interference with the 3070 and my radiator, thanks Thermaltake P3 :) ) So here i am asking for any information anyone may have on this issue :D

blue screen crash from previous windows install


non bluescreen crash from today with new windows install yesterday

    According to your description, it worked fine for 2 days after a fresh install. So this must be a problem with something later installed.
    Crash dump is the best information to analyze. For your bluescreen.txt, it pointed to ntoskrnl.exe. This is just a normal kernel error with no other valid information. So find the C:\WINDOWS\Minidump or memory dump to analyze. We could use Windbg previewer tool downloaded from Microsoft Store to analyze these dumps.
    These event logs contained lots of errors such as Windows Update, Dcom permission, Video card driver and so on.
    So I consider that you could try to check for update to install the latest updates after a fresh install. Then don't install related Graphics card control software to check if it will still crash.
    Also I find the information below: it was occurred after installing video card software. It is a DCOM permission issue recorded as Event id 10016.
    Warning 2021-02-16 10:04:05 PM Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM 10016 None "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user DESKTOP-GFOI963\Lucas SID (S-1-5-21-1225489496-1017845518-622405393-1001) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool."
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,

    I got driver easy pro to see if i was missing anything for drivers but seems to be all ok. Getting DCP_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION, according to whocrash. I did some research into where this issue can come from seems to all be video driver related but i been installing every version of the Nvidia driver I can without the bloatware. No idea what else I could do. I ordered a new riser cable(140$ :( ) to see maybe if this one is faulty or not.
