2. Turn off the CPU or GPU overclocking
The annoying BSOD crash linked with the Ntkrnlmp.exe occurs commonly when CPU or GPU are overclocked. Many users have faced this trouble but have managed to get rid of it by disabling their clocked frequencies.
If anything on your PC is currently overclocked, you must switch back the frequencies and see how your system readjusts to this setting. If the error and crash stop you must gradually reduce this frequency till a stable state has been reached with the BSOD crashes which at an appropriate frequency must stop.
3. Switch off the C-states and EIST from the BIOS
Whatever the architecture of your PC is, your operating system is most likely running on a C-state and EIST which is the short form for Enhanced Intel Speed Step Technology in order to save on energy when the CPU is set to idle. This process alters the voltage of the CPU when it is in idle mode or in times when the load is low. Now according to the model of your CPU, this might generate insufficient voltage which may result in BSOD.
You can test this by switching off these two on the BIOS but according to your motherboard the exact guideline for this may be different. On many of the BIOS versions these two options can be found in the section for Advanced Menu after which you must access the CPU configuration and finally go to CPU Power Management. Then switch off both of these and confirm this setting to save it.
