I've read the BSOD posts by jmarket regarding possible causes and I do get overclocking errors about 3 or 4 times per year. The last overclocking error was on Nov. 16, 2016.

Thanks for your file :)

I analyzed it and it appears your video card driver failed to recover from a crash, forcing Windows to reset itself.

I see that you're using an nVidia card. Please run Display Driver Uninstaller, then install the latest video card drivers from nVidia. The latest one is this one from Dec 2016. If you're running GeForce Experience, please ensure that is updated as well.

Please post back your results :)

Hi jmarket,

DDU worked great.
I installed NVIDIA driver 376.33, selecting custom installation for the Graphics Driver, PhysX System & GEForce Experience.
( GEForce is useful to configure my 6 monitor set-up )
I did not install the 3D components, since they are not used, nor the HD Audio Driver since it gave me problems in the past.

From services.msc, I disabled NVIDIA Wireless Controller Service & Telemetry Container.
I've rebooted my PC a couple of times, tried out some programs, videos, audio and everything is working great. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the excellent solutions.
Have a good day/evening.
