Here's the thing.

Minidumps are for you and Microsoft. Here I find a WEB Speccy and a few other details to be more helpful.

Also, the story needs to be complete. Sometimes folk get a new PC, bluescreen and it's not theirs to fix. That's a warranty issue.

Half better.

I don't see much story here. Think of what it takes to bluescreen. For example one owner would bluescreen in a specific game. It took a little work (google!) but we found the game did indeed BSOD when antialiasing was set to a certain value.

So they had spent months and dollars at service counters over one setting.

A bit more info

It can bluescreen when i'm doing anything. I've checked the minidump files with bluescreenview. The files that often cause the bluescreen are:

bwcw10x64.sys
ndis.sys
dxgmms2.sys
ntoskrnl.exe <- occurs in quite a few of the bluescreens.
netio.sys
storport.sys
nvlddmkm.sys
tcpip.sys

Since too many in your list involve networking.

BUT there many other things out of wack in the speccy r

Speccy reading.

This is NOT a claim that this is it. It's a reading with comments.

1. First item that looks off is the SINGLE CHANNEL RAM.
This is going to throttle the overall performance. Have the PC's maker correct that.

2. 4K Display.
Right there you are on the bleeding edge. I'm hearing a lot of screams over 4K setups. I fear you are on the bleeding edge and will pay for it with BSODs.

3. Suspend after: (On AC Power): 30 min
Suspending can be problematic. Until you are stable, don't do this.

4. Turn this off for now. Read

5. A KB install failed. Can't tell why. Check priors with:

6. Discord.exe
I think I see more than one chat app. Try it with one.

7. BIOS is out of date. MSI comments about stability, memory compatibility and more.

Ram

In reply to: Speccy reading.

Problem I have with the ram is that two of the slots on my motherboard don't work. And those two ram sticks are almost brand new. Could it potentially be the motherboard?

So the motherboard is defective.

In reply to: Ram

That certainly is not a good thing. There are other issues about the network and the other 6 items.
