BSOD when starting games on Win 10
Everytime I play certain Steam games I get a blue screen of death with the error "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (ddkmd.sys)" I have checked my RAM, updated my drivers and performed chkdsk but have not been able to resolve it. Please help me :)

There are lots of reasons why this happens.

*Wrong/ old / damaged WDDM drivers
(Happens after upgrading to Windows 10 with default drivers)

*Windows Registery corrupted (Installing and removing related drivers)

*Virus/Malware damaging related drivers.

*Hardware Conflicts

*Damaged or removed files after reinstalling drivers related WDDM software

*Hard drive damaged (Not able to read/write related software)

IF STOP is within the error message, your DRAM may be corrupted/damaged

Did you upgrade from Windows(7,8) to 10 by choosing to update via Windows update?
Then try downloading an ISO of Windows 10, and re-install. Or manually remove the drivers and re-install the drivers that are on the hardware-seller's website. If your hardware isn't listed for Windows 10 drivers, you should stick to your previous Windows OS until they're available.

Thank you, I have tried a few of these and I'll try the rest now. Yeah I upgraded from 7 via windows update but it was a clean install if that makes a difference? Any advice on how to check all my drivers?

Upload the dump files in %windir%\minidumps.
