Stopcode (BSoD): Kernal Security Check Failure - now Windows will not start

Windows 10

Computer went to a BSoD with a stopcode of "Kernal Security Check Failure". Computer habitually does not reboot after the dmp files download. I manually powered the computer down, let it sit for about a minute and powered it back up. Computer cleared POST, shows that it is reading all the drives. I get the Windows logo and the idiot lights running in a circle, but after several minutes windows has not come up. Usually, it takes less than a minute for Windows to launch. Powered the computer down again, powered back up, checked the BIOS settings, all look okay. Proceed on. We re-boot, POST looks normal. Windows just sits there spinning. Running Win 10 Pro 1607 (not sure of the build) . Frustration level is just about at the point where I am ready to "adjust" this computer with a sledgehammer.

Differences between Windows 10 32 bit and 64 bit

Windows 10

Can someone please tell me the differences between Windows 10 32 bit and 64 bit? I am in the process of planning a drive wipe and re-install of Win 10 and I am wondering if 32 bit will work for me. Some favorite older programs will still load and run on 64 bit and others flat out refuse. Even DOS programs. Some DOS oldies like Wolfenstein 3D still run on the 64 bit platform while others, like the 1st two versions of Descent, will not?

Xbox One Controller Audio Help

Windows 10

I have just a standard Xbox One controller being used through the wireless adapter, and so I want to play audio through it using the 3.5mm headphone jack, but when I plug my (Apple) earpods in no sound will come out. Everything is up to date so maybe the problem is that it's an apple device or some setting isn't quite right. Any help would be much appreciated.

Genuine Windows 7

Windows 10

Hi, I'm Farid. I've sent my PC to an indie PC center to reformat my windows (it was the FREE windows 10 and even the previous windows 7 was genuine as well). And as the result of the reformation, the people at the center used the old windows 7 that is not genuine. So, the question here is, is there any chances for me to get back my genuine windows 7? I can't reinstall windows 10 on my PC due to some errors (tried it before and I don't know what have they done to my PC). I wan't my windows to be genuine but I don't think imma pay extra dollars for it. I mean, you know, I already had it before and now I need to pay more for another one. This is so saddening. Okay, I'm being dramatic here but yes, can you feel me? I don't think those people at the center would be responsible for this since it was the windows 10 that they saw, not the genuine windows 7 which I have no back up at all! Sorry, my English is so terrible but could you please help me out? Anyone? I really need it! Thank you! Love, FARID.

Wifi disconnect, and won't reconnect to home network without restart of asus laptop

Windows 10

ASUS X553ma Laptop Sleep/Hibernation power off unchecked--all drivers updated and show functioning properly----Command prompt for Ipconfig,renew,release/all done ---flushdns- done. Home network shows available and 3 of 4 bars. Computer diagnostic after applying network adapter reset, then prompts for check ethernet connection as if wifi were not an option. Turning wifi on/off has no effect. It is so random also although started two months ago maybe once a week til now where it can occur 3 or more times a day and as little as minutes apart. Manufacturer and microsoft updates are completed. Is it possible that my ISP/Comcast is doing this to clear traffic to kick off long running users and somehow disabling auto reconnect? What happens at restart that I can't do without restart?
