I found a thread here made by Sadpants.
He has a 90% similar situation and hardware, we might both be from Norway.

I'VE had this issue for a year now.
Buying expensive computer without being able to use it to its potential, ending up using the cheap laptop instead. meh..


please check Sadpants issues and troubleshooting are very much the same as what I've tried.

1 driver is unknown and have been unable to update through Driver Booster 5 and manual attempt.
This driver is for Bluetooth Qualcomm Atheros QCA61X4A 4.1 driver

Within the Bluetooth driver, there is a file called "btcoins.dll". (uploaded picture)
Just happen to look like bitcoins, yes? =>

Though, while writing this topic, device manager shows no errors.


The screen turns black
Fans run at max
Sound is still flowing normal (ingame sounds are correct + windows sounds might play)
Keyboard seems to work, I can alt+tab and get a windows sound ^
Eventually I have to force powerdown.

When windows start again, the only message I see is "display driver switched to integrated".
Checking event log (new to this).

-At critical is kernel id 41 with task 63

*I've tried to upload a pic here with my event log*

Happens only during open world games (Especially watch dogs 2 in silicon valley) Guild wars 2, far cry.

Though Just cause 3, I have finished this game with a guess of 100 hours ingame.
only 2 crashes has happened here. While watch dogs is at a crash number of 40ish within the same amount of time.

Overclock: I have tried the bios auto 5ghz overclock settings. only get some challenges with temperature, but I am able to play many games without issue (not open world games) and after some work, I am able to get the temperature down and run any stress test without fail. (prime95, realbench asus and others I can't remember).

I have tried 5ghz with XMP profile both on and off, makes no difference.

tried default bios settings with and without xmp, makes no diff.

Temperatures reach a peak of 90C cpu.
GPU is always lower with peak at 80C.

Things I've tried, if I remember everything

reinstalling windows a few times.
tried many types of registry cleaner.

AVG paid version was the first installed.
then I got Malwarebytes, systemadvanced care, driver booster 5 and windowsregistry cleaner.

I think there is only 1 program that has not caused any issues, Malwarebytes.

Moved the 2 RAM's around in different slots, which resulted in the computer listing them as 16gb *2 or as one 32gb. (viewed from task manager performance tab and memory window.)
Have not tried using only 1 RAM.

New issues I've caused, trying to solve the crash

When booting, the computer POST 3 times before continuing.
I think this is directly related to BIOS settings.

Whenever Guild wars 2 is doing a loading screen, when it's done loading, I get minimized to desktop and then the game pops back up and continues normally.
I THINK, this was caused by either advanced systemcare doing something OR me messing with paging files (which also caused watch dogs 2 not to launch. error code 0x0000000000000020 could not read memory).
Because of this, I made a fresh install of windows last night.
