    My computer's been rather off its game the past few days, but I thought it was just from having too many things running without restarting in a while. It would freeze and then continue after a few minutes. This isn't exactly common for my computer, having recently (Within the last 6 months, not so recently for it to be teething problems) been built as an above average computer for playing most games on mid-high settings. Then today it went to a blue screen of death and continued to do so each time it was restarted after a few minutes of starting in normal mode.

    I then started the computer in safe mode. I got on my laptop to start looking up possible fixes and it remained stable at the desktop for the entire time. I then began to run a virus scan (Malwarebytes, up-to-date) and after roughly 5 minutes of it scanning, the computer automatically restarted. It ran through a check disc automatically and found some errors that it repaired before starting again. After a few hiccups with windows explorer not starting properly, it ran in normal mode again before randomly going to a blue screen again with no obvious common cause with the previous ones. I obtained a HijackThis log and the dump file from the computer while it was running in safe mode. I would appreciate any help.

    If any further information is needed it will be provided upon request.

    I discovered and ran WhoCrashed and it responded that all of them were caused in part or in full by memory management errors. I'm updating my drivers now, but I've never come across a BSOD as a result of an outdated video driver...

    Edit:
    Updated video drivers did nothing. Safe mode with networking even works, just not normal mode.
