I've submitted a ticket to Gigabyte Tech Support regarding this issue, but while awaiting a reply from them (which sometimes takes a while), I thought I'd post here to see what all of you had to say (and maybe you've seen this too).
I've had Windows 10 for over three years (it's been a stable system for me). My current system custom-build (with an Aorus Gaming 8 Motherboard) I've had for almost a year and-a-half. The other day I had two system crashes while my system was idle; it gave me a BSOD, rebooted, then later in the day, another one.
If you're present in front of your monitor during the BSOD, sometimes you can catch what it says that's causing it; also, it creates those Mini-dumps, and I have that program that lets you view the results of the Blue Screen and what might be causing it.
Both times of the BSOD, the item that showed up as the culprit was listed as "gdrv.sys". I did not know what that was, so I did a search on the 'Net; the very first result said this:
"The gdrv.sys file is a driver file associated with Gigabyte motherboard and graphics cards. The file executes a process known as Gigabyte Tools. The file appears to cause BSOD and crashes the system, as what has been reported by some clients."
The article claims that gdrv.sys is affiliated with Gigabyte Tools, but I don't have Gigabyte Tools installed as a program on my computer; all I have is the APP Center with RGB Fusion to control my motherboard's lighted color scheme.
On some of the other results from my search on gdrv.sys, some people have tried renaming this file to avoid & alleviate their BSOD, but, the next time they shut down and then boot their computer, the gdrv.sys file just gets re-created. One of the other search results from a Gigabyte forum says overclocking can cause this, but I don't overclock.
Well, anybody have any ideas or input while I await a response from Gigabyte Tech Support?
Thanks for any info,
