Hello all,

I've attempted to solve my BSOD problems in the past by looking up the code and doing everything it tells me to do on the list, but there always was a new or repeat code popping up. I'm new to forums, so pardon my etiquette. Any help would be greatly apricated

I've had error codes such as
memory management,
IRQL not less or equal,
system service exception,
and kernel mode heap corruption.

I've updated all my drivers in the past week
I am on the most recent version of windows
I've done sfc /scannow
I've done dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
I've done mdsched.exe (windows memory diagnostic tool)

Hi,

you said you have the latest drivers, try a fresh download of your GPU drivers (GeForce GTX 1060) and run the installer again!. :)

Personally, I'd check with the motherboard manufacturer and see what they might have regarding a more recent BIOS update, specifically for my board, model and version.
Paying particular attention to any caveats / recommendations regarding updating GPU or Chipset Drivers before installing that firmware.
I've done mdsched.exe (windows memory diagnostic tool)
IF I had reason to suspect an issue with installed memory, I wouldn't rely on the native memory diagnostic utility.
I would instead
Download Memtest86+ from this location here. Burn the ISO to a CD and boot the computer from the CD from a cold boot after leaving it off for an hour.

Ideally let it run for at least 7 passes / 6-8 hours (overnight even better). First test system as presently configured with all RAM modules in place, If errors appear before that you can stop that particular test. Any time Memtest86+ reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad Mobo slot. Perform the test on RAM sticks individually as well as all possible combinations. When you find a good one then test it in all slots.

See this Guide to using Memtest 86+
