    This is great, but you have to be inside Windows active.
    Mine, after a microfot update, can not load the system by entering a boot loop.
    I do not have access to Safe Mode (does not enter) and neither to the command prompt.
    I can only enter the repair tools.
    Is Verifier driver available via the command prompt in the system repair options?

      No it isn't.

    Hi, I normally get the BSOD after or while playing games on my laptop. It used to be fine, but after some updates I started getting them. It used to be the video dxgkrnl fatal error but now I get the Page Fault in Nonpaged Area BSOD. I set the verifier and proceeded to play one of the games that caused the BSOD. What normally happens is the game crashes, it closes itself, my fans ramp up to abnormal rpms and when I try to shut the laptop down it shows me the BSOD sometimes without the shut down. This time I did it after verifier, I got the BSOD but it got stuck in 0% so I had to manually shut it down. After booting the laptop and checking blue screen view I only had past BSODs and not the one that just happened. The problem in blue screen view pointed that ntoskrnl.exe is the driver that caused it, but that’s a program and I’m not sure how to uninstall and reinstall that. It points out it’s an MS OS product. Any help would be great. Thank you.

      I guess your laptop is overheating or there is a problem with the graphics card. I suggest you to clean the fans from dust and install an older driver version for your video card.

    Hi, my computer keeps crashing to the blue death so often. I followed the steps but need a little more clarity. You say to leave the driver verifier running for 24 hours but then you say if it crashes to disable it? So am I to disable and Re-Enable each time it crashes, or do I only disable once after 24 hours? Do I need to install the software after disabling the verified? I installed before then followed the above steps to disable the verifier but nothing was found in the software. I re-enabled the settings in step 1 and tried again and still nothing in the software. Can you help? Thanks so much!!

      Disable the driver verifier when your computer crashes and continue to step-2 to find out which driver is causing your system to crash.
      If your computer does not crash during the 24-hour test, then all drivers are OK and the driver verifier test is not necessary to run any longer, so disable (stop) the driver verifier.
      In this case, the BSOD is probably due to a hardware problem. (Memory, HDD, Motherboard, VGA, etc.). To find out out the problem, follow the below steps:
      1. Test the Memory and Hard drive for problems.
      2. Disconnect all the peripheral devices that not needed and see if the BSOD problem persists.
      3. Install an oldest driver for your Graphics Adapter.
      4. Perform a fresh Windows installation.
