Constant BSOD's in Windows 10, different Errors each time . . .

Hi, I clean installed the Creators Edition of Windows 10 lately and ever since I am getting constant BSOD's maybe every hour or so!

I would be forever grateful if someone could have a look at my Mini-Dump files and point me in the right direction as to the cause of these BSOD's

NOTE: I have this Mobile Workstation for 3 years on Windows 10, never had a BSOD and now all of a sudden I am getting them all the time, and I am at a loss . . .

1. All the minidumps point to Mbm3DevMt.sys dated 10/31/2010 MCCI Corporation  F3607gw driver. Update or remove that driver.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for Mbm3DevMt.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for Mbm3DevMt.sys

2. Update the Nvidia video driver as well as the BIOS, chipset drivers, and all major drivers. See below for methods to update drivers at Nvidia, Dell, and other makers.

Nvidia - Drivers - Use OPTION 1 to manually enter your driver info to get most current drivers.

Nvidia Support - check with Support as it could be a known issue

Nvidia Forums - also check for forums as it could be a known issue and/or others likely to have it

3. You may need to fully uninstall Avast and then run its Removal Tool. This is because it may be involded or helping to mask the real cause. Use Windows Defender which in Windows 8/8.1 & 10 is a full antivirus.

4. Run the memory tests (see methods below).

5. As needed use ALL the methods in the troubleshooters below.

6. After ALL the above if needed run Driver Verifier to see if it can indicate a
CAUSE (see Driver Verifier methods below).

This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded :

Run DriverView - set VIEW to Hide Microsoft drivers - update those without
Dump in their names (and update BIOS and chipset drivers).

DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded
on your system. For each driver in the list, additional useful information is
displayed: load address of the driver, description, version, product name,
company that created the driver, and more.
For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the
most current. Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down
the make and complete model of your video adapter - double click - Driver's
tab - write down the version info. Now click UPdate Driver (this may not do
anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click - Uninstall -
REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard
if 3rd party with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers
you have.

Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and
then Device Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their
latest versions. (Look for BIOS, Chipset, and software updates at System Maker's
site while there.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN -
REBOOT after each installation.

Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are
installing actually shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the
latest is installed (sound drivers particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot
- check to be sure it is installed and repeat as needed.

Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER -
heck manually by model.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.   


Memory tests do not catch all errors such as mismatched memory (possible even
for sticks that appear to be identical) and when faster memory is placed in system
behind slower memory. So it is best to also swap sticks in and out to check for
those even if all memory tests fail to show a problem.

To test RAM check here - let it run 4+ hours or so.  <-- best method

MemTestX86 - Test RAM With

For the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool.

Type in Cortana's search box ->  Windows Memory Diagnostics 
at top of list - click it. in Windows 8/8.1/10 the name is "Windows Memory


After doing ALL the updates you can, and if the issue continues, then run

Driver Verifier can help find some BSOD issues :

Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Windows drivers for advanced users

How To Troubleshoot Driver Problems in Windows Vista or 7. (8/8.1 and 10
are essentially the same).

Using Driver Verifier

WINKEY + X - RUN - type in -> verifier /reset      hit enter to disable

Use BlueScreenView to see if there is a driver specified in the error message.
Also check with MyEventViewer at the time of the BlueScreen.

If Driver Verifier creates a minidump upload it and post the link here so we can
analyze it.

Hope this helps.
