Windows 10 BSOD but not log files or Dump?

I'm having a frequent problem with Windows 10, upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit.

When power the machine on from cold, about 1\3 of the time it will BSOD and then automatically reboot. The error happens around the time that you'd normally get the password screen

The error message varies, but it's usually a standard "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" message, with no other details or "PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA". also with no other details

The annoying thing is that these two error produce no log files or dump files at all. I get the percentage counter that says that it's creating them, but it just doesn't create them. At least not in the normal place.

I've checked the Windows logs, and the only entry is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." Nothing else.

I've run the normal memory checking and system file checking commands from the command prompt, but both say that that everything is OK.

There are dump files in C:\Windows\Minidump and there is a MEMORY.DMP file in the Windows directory, but these are from other problems (Now fixed) that I had after the update. So I know that Windows is creating logs\dumps when I have other errors.

Given that there is no memory dump, and no Minidump, and no Windows event messages, I'm not certain what information to put up here to help.

The error started right after I upgraded to Windows 10, and doesn't seem to be related to any new hardware or software installations. I'm using the latest software for all of my hardware, and I've scanned my machine for Viruses and it's come up clean (Avira and Malwarebytes). There are no errors or conflicts show in Device Manager.

I normally find the best part of the BSOD to quote is the Stop:0x00.....

But searching around the web 'PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA' error seems to be caused by one or more of the following:
RAM fault - you say you have checked the RAM, but try reseating each stick to make sure, or try removing all but 1 stick to see if it still crashes.
HDD fault - run a HDD diagnostics program to see if it reports any errors
Power fault - has the PC lost power while on, could be a fault with the PSU etc.

This is the problem, there isn't a stop code at all. Just the short text message, and there are no logs with stop codes in them. I've RAM a half dozen times already and I can't find an error. As this only happens every few boots it's hard to tell if I'm not getting the problem by removing some of the ram, or if I've fixed it.

The PC hasn't lost power, I've sat and watched it.

What kind of disc diagnostic program do you recommend?
