I've asked this question on a different forum before, I'll try to keep it succinct.

I've upgraded my pc with a new Ryzen 2600x, a new motherboard and a new M.2 SSD with a clean Windows 10 install. Full specs were as such:

AMD Ryzen 5 Hexa core 2600x
Gigabyte GA-AB350-GAMING 3
MSI Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 8G (old)
16 GB RAM 2.4GHz (old)
500GB M.2 SSD
Windows 10 (clean install)

600W PSU (old)


Problems: After enabling SVM and IOMMU, using either Bluestacks, Nox or Memu (android emulators) causes BSOD crashes. Enabling Hyper-V or Hypervisor only speeds up the BSOD happening. On screen it says 'System Service Exception', delving further I find stopcode 0x000003b, caused by driver nostkrnl.exe.


After trying a few things regarding SVM, HyperV/Hypervisor, driver-reinstall, a memtest and disabling antivirus, I made two changes in my build. I upgraded my RAM and Motherboard to:

Corsair Vengeange LPX 3200MHz 16GB

ASRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4


The problem persists. The same BSOD code, clean installed the drivers, ran a DISM and SFC (if I recall correctly) and nothing comes up. I can play videogames, run a benchmark but only the android emulator causes the BSOD. If I can't find a fix, I may need to return everything I've bought and try a completely different build, but I really prefer to get this working.


Thanks in advance.
