I will briefly describe my system setup and the problem at hand followed by a synopsis of troubleshooting steps I have attempted.
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
ASUS SAbertooth Mark I motherboard
Intel 6700K CPU
Nvidia GTX 960 GPU
512 GB Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD - m.2 socket PCI-e 3.0 x4
When importing photos into Lightroom I invariably get the Windows error "Lightroom has stopped working" which prompts lightroom to crash to desktop. Looking in the event viewer logs it shows that the file responsible for the crash (or at least being reported as such) is the Adobe file AgKernel.dll
Steps I have taken to try to resolve the problem, in the order I have taken them:
Up to this point I would also occasionally (about 20% of the time) get a blue sceen after a Lightroom failure, these bluescreen have stopped after the next troubleshooting step, so there may be a problem with the GPU. However, even removing it from the system did not enable Lightroom to successfully Import photos.
At this point I am attempting to re-install Windows 10 on a different SSD I have on hand: Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB - SATA 3.
Given that none of the above has resolved the problem I am starting to get to a loss on what will fix it. Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. I am prepared to send in any crash logs that are needed to enable us to come to a resolution to this problem.
I will be attempting to do a full Diagnostic scan of the motherboard using ASUS's PC Diagnostics suite to see if it is perhaps an issue with the motherboard. I will also be running a Prime95 scan to see if there are any issues with the process and RAM that Memtest 86 did not catch. I will post the results this evening and continue troubleshooting from there.
I too am having this same issue and have also many different attempts on my own to fix it. The problem still continues.
