|Built a new computer with :
GIGABYTE B450M DS3H AM4 Motherboard
AMD AMD RYZEN 5 2600X WRAITHS CPU (6Core with hyperthreading, 12 cores)
IPSG 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 3200 KIT RAM
SAMSUNG E 500GB 970EVO NVME M.2 SSD
Nvidia GEForce GTX 1660
Sorry, not yelling -- it's copied from my order.
This computer is soooooo fast! Except...
Installed the latest Win10 1903 release.
I install the Nvidia drivers and it runs perfectly. Blazing fast running Android Studio, Android Emulator while running Visual Studio at the same time.
Every time I reboot (or shutdown and turn on computer next day) Win10 re-installs the graphics drivers it thinks is best and the computer crashes within moments of starting FireFox or Android Studio or whatever. So I install the appropriate graphics drivers again. Everything is fine until windows installs the wrong driver again.
Check this laughable BSOD out:
Yes, if you call a support person please provide them with the stop code: KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE and make sure you yell it loud enough.
Here's another BSOD I've seen : https://i.stack.imgur.com/Pf4pl.jpg[^]
Those of you who like Win10 will experience sympathy, others will let the schadenfreude rain down.
FireFox, Android Studio
The odd thing is that the generally the first time I boot up each day the machine will crash.
Then I reboot and after that everything is fine.
How could this be true? The computer cannot tell the difference from one boot-up to another. I don't get it.
FireFox seems to always be the culprit, but Android Emulator and/or Android Studio can generally get the crash too.
I've looked over the Crash Dump with WinDb and I see that FireFox is the culprit but not much else.
I downloaded Opera Web Browser and I closed FireFox so I can test for a while.
I have Android Studio, Android emulator, streaming the Apple Event livestream in Opera window and posting here all at the same time as a test.
I immediately got an error in NVidiaShare.exe which crashed becuase it "couldn't read a file from the m.2 drive." That makes me wonder if I have some kind of disk errors.
Oy! New super fast computer and I'm moving slower than ever.
Well, it's not just FF, because Opera crashed. Loads of fun here.
Apps kept crashing so I did another test. I ran the Nvidia driver installation again (in case Win10 invisibly updated them) and it seems like this is fixing it. So I really think it is the Graphics Drivers and Win10 overwriting them every time.
if (Win10_update overwrites graphic drivers)
Win10_update = TERRIBLE!!!
Running for hours now after running NVidia driver installation and no apps have crashed and win10 is stable. Why, Win10!?! Why do you do this to us!?!
Well, as long as I don't reboot...
