==================================================
It only started happening yesterday, I used Uniblue DriverScanner to find a sound driver for my sound card so that I didn't have to open up my PC and check the serial number. DriverScanner found a few other drivers as well which I installed. After a reboot my PC was fine for a while until I started to play games, when I play games I almost always get this BSOD, perhaps because they are RAM intensive? I went to restore my drivers but DriverScanner had not made any restore points even though it said it was doing so during the installation of the new drivers. It's the first time I have used software to download and install my drivers and I won't be using it again. I am wondering whether to try a system restore but if anybody else has had this problem then your input would be greatly appreciated.

yes try a restore to before this happened
and
start type sfc /scannow and let it do its thing (30 mins or so ) run it twice after you have tried the restore

Alright, I'll report back after it's finished. Thanks for the reply.

EDIT: It turns out that I don't have any restore points before the 28th. I installed the drivers on the 27th. Any ideas? I could obviously reinstall if worst came to worst but I would prefer it if not. Once again, thanks for your reply.

do you have an image saved via windows recovery , i tend to make a new image every month

ntosk is usually a messed up bit which recorrects after a clean up using sfc and checking your hard disc start my comp right click C drive properties tools error check tick both re boot may take ages though

i fixed the NTOSKRNL.exe error yesterday by taking out the hard drive into another working machine and do a disk repair. I just did chkdsk /r /f and it worked
