Blue Screen of Death every two minutes - Need Assistance!

Hello fellow Unreal Engine users,

I hope you’re all doing well. I’m new to the Unreal Engine software and have encountered a frustrating problem that I can’t seem to resolve on my own. I’m hoping someone here can provide some insight or assistance.

Issue: Every time I start Unreal Engine, I experience the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) after just a few minutes. This problem is unique to Unreal Engine, as I have been using other resource-intensive software like Cinema 4D, Redshift, Houdini, and After Effects without any issues on the same machine.

Machine Specifications:

  • Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0 Build 19045)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16-Core Processor
  • Memory: 132GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090

Troubleshooting Steps Taken:

  1. Updated graphics card drivers: I made sure to install the latest drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
  2. Cleaned up the computer: I performed a thorough cleanup of my system to ensure there are no conflicting or unnecessary files.
  3. Permissions: I checked and granted any necessary permissions that Unreal Engine might require.
  4. Software Updates: I made sure Unreal Engine was up to date with the latest version available.

Despite taking these measures, I still encounter the BSOD consistently whenever I attempt to open Unreal Engine. I have even created a video to showcase the error, which occurs every time I open the software.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance!
