Question

constant blue screen errors

First started happening after I swapped out my motherboard for a new one and the crashes started. After 3 weeks of reinstalling windows 10 as well as windows 8.1, the crashes happen even when returning to the old motherboard. i've tried testing out the different hardware parts and they all seem to be running fine without any problems, but the crashes keep happening. the errors are usually different, but my event viewer shows most of these process groups are warning to critical level:
DistrubutedCOM
Kernal-pnp
storahci
service control manager
NTFS

my current version of windows 10 is the free upgrade version

Answer
If you change a motherboard, Windows does that.

If you wipe the drive and it still crashes I look to the hardware again. It really doesn't matter that each piece works on another PC since you have to get this combination to work.

Since it's a new board, complain to that supplier.

So what's the problem?

Is there a compatibility issue with the board? And why is it happening on the old board that used to work? What exactly is it that windows does?

Yes.

That's a mystery at the moment.

As to the last question, there are thousands if not more discussions about moving Windows from one machine to another and it BSODing. As such I will forgo discussing why it does that and state it does most of the time.
