PC restarts, BSOD on cold reboot

Question: PC restarts, BSOD on cold reboot

Hi guys,

I seem to encounter another problem today with my computer. After using it last night and booting it up earlier this morning, I got a BSOD with a PFN_LIST_CORRUPT as its reason. I tried to resume loading Windows 7 normally, however it restarts a few seconds upon a successful user log in. I switched to Safe Mode and then performed a sfc /scannow on the command prompt (three times), with 2 results saying it encountered no problems, and one being unable to finish.

Anyway, I can't run a perfmon test successfully in Safe mode, but I managed to get the dump files somehow. Attached below would be the dump files.

I'd really appreciate it if someone can help me fix this.

Preferred Solution: PC restarts, BSOD on cold reboot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Memory corruption after SP1 was installed. Also asacpi.sys is a huge cause of bsod's

1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Hello to everyone!

About two months ago I build my first pc (after many sacrifices to get the money).
But I have from the beginning this frustrating bsod.
It appears only at cold start up, not appears in a restart or in warm start up.
If the pc is turned off for several hours (tipically on night), at the morning I have bsod.
After that, the pc works correctly in navigation, in games, ecc. (I have not overclocked).
Usually it is a irql_not_less_or_equal 0x0000000a
I have write all my pc specs in my profile and I have attached the dm log collector file.
I have searched a lot on Google, but nothing resolved the problem.
Yesterday I found this beautiful forum, I hope there is a solution to this problem
(I had the same exact problem with Win10, I have formatted and installed Win7 but again the same).
Really thanks to all who help me with this problem.

P.S: sorry if my english is not perfect

Hello All,

I've been running into this on and off for some time now. the pc will crash a few minutes after a cold boot usually as I try to access the internet, but runs OK after the pc reboots. This also crops up coming out of hibernation (reopening the pc). I don't know if the two are related.
Attached is the zip from the latest cold boot/reboot.
Thanks for the help.

My date drive is a Seagate Barracuda 2T0 on the same 6G intel controller

Surprisingly, the event monitor tells me that the marvell mv91xx.sys could not be loaded !! (i have to say that i disabled the MARVELL SATA controller in the bios)

Hi Guys,

Just recently put my new computer together and all was good. But now when I turn the computer on from a cold boot it comes up with application errors within about 10 min of starting and then it auto reboots itself. The computer is fine after it restarts with no problems at all.


My specs are
E8200 Intel running at stock
P5N-E SLi ASUS board
bois 901 (most recent)
2gb at 5-5-5-16-21 at 400MHz frequency
ANTEC TruePower TRIO 650watt
and a 8600 GTS


Why would it only crash on a cold boot? Is it something to do with memory timings or something? Everything is brand new.

Thanks for your help!

Hi all... I have a p4 1gig ram machine with standard hardware (2 ide hd, dvd-rw, cd-rw, 128mb graphics and a few usb connections)

I built it in a soyo case with the stock 350w psu.

Everything works great, except I have one strange problem.
I can leave the machine on for days, rebooting when necessary without any problems at all. But sometimes, on a cold boot (rare occasion when machine has been off), it will start up, load windows, allow me to launch apps as normal, and then a few minutes later - zap - it restarts as if someone had pushed the power button.

This NEVER happens after the first few minutes, and NEVER on a reboot, only a cold boot.

I began suspecting something at the end of the startup routine, maybe something loading in the background that crashed the machine, but the other day it happened 5 times in a row, and the last 3 times never made it past the bios screen (so that rules out windows errors).

And then, it started up, and has been on for almost 36 hours no problems.

I should mention this machine is plugged into a small ups (that never fails during power outages) and everything is close to brand new.

Should I be suspecting the power supply? Seems like it would either work or not... but the cold reboot-only scenario has got me puzzled.
Could it be the ups?

Any light anyone can shed on this would be greatly appreciated, I dont want to start taking things apart without knowing the most likely suspect.

Thanks very much... Michael

Answer:pc restarts few minutes after cold boot

Give us the details of your powersupply. If it came with the case, it is most likely one of those throwaway doorstops. They work reasonably well with a minimal setup, but only just. Make any demands on it, and it's bye-bye.

Hello,

My friend has a VISTA Medion laptop (I dont have full details to hand but will get this and post latter). It has a problem that has just started to happen over the last two months or so (so they say). It started off that after starting the laptop for the first time after about 5-10 mins it would crash and go to a black screen with a few blue boxes on, the only way to get it back would be to hold the power button till it came on. I had a look at it and updated video drivers, windows and checked for viruses and malware. All of this seemed to do was move the problem to just going to a black screen (like hibernation) but i could not get it out of it unless again using the power button. I have now changed all power settings in basic and advance to off or various different versions of some off some on different times all to no avail. I have also disabled everything other than MS from startup. However this has now resulted in the laptop restarting itself again after 5-10 mins. Again it is only from a cold boot, once it has restarted once it is fine till the laptop is turned off.

Having read a few post i have since updated all the drivers i could think of including sound and network drivers. I have updated the BIOS all with very little change. The current state is that it still restarts but again only off a cold boot but now just before it does the screen goes blank and the mouse cursor gets bigger.

I have already updated all drivers & the BIOS

Answer:Vista Restarts after first cold boot

Hi Joffy,

It may something to do with the wireless connection - see this thread for others with vaguely similar issues. No solution on that thread yet, though.

Suggest you get your friend to stop using the wireless connection and see if the problem persists - at least that may narrow it down.

Sometimes my machine has a problem that requires a cold boot. Memory is not completely cleared with a warm reboot.

My question is: If I hold down the reset button for a few seconds, will memory be completely cleared? If so, how many seconds should I hold down the reset button?

The reason I ask is that my machine has some SCSI drives that take a minute or two to get up to speed from a cold boot.

Thanks for your answer.
 

Answer:Warm vs Cold reboot

As long as power is being fed to the memory chips the memory will remain there. You have to do a cold boot (cut off the power) in order to completely clear DRAM.

Hello.  I've been having an issue for a long time, over a year I believe. Even after installing a new hard drive, and doing a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro, it has started doing it again. When the computer starts from a cold boot, powering up for the first time, it takes a while to "think".  After a few minutes, the computer will flash a blue screen, then restart the computer, and boot into windows just fine.  After telling windows to not auto restart on a blue screen, the message was of the nature of "no hard drive/OS found".  With how much effort it took to get back into windows with this problem, and windows not auto restarting after a blue screen, I don't really want to try and get the exact phrasing. Originally, this laptop came with Windows 7, and I upgraded it to 8.1 and I never had a problem.  It came with the SSD, and I believe I had Lenovo install windows on the SSD.  Before I sent the laptop in under warranty due to using the battery power gauge reset, I reset the laptop back to factory.  After getting the laptop back from Lenovo, I reinstalled windows directly to 8.1, and this problem eventually appeared. With the hard drive failure I had been experiencing, I was thinking that that may have been the problem.  But after replacing the hard drive, and doing a completely fresh install of 8.1, the problem went away.  However, with more and more windows updates, the computer takes a longer time to start...

After cleaning out my heat sink and removing dust, I can no longer access my BIOS as the reboot hangs when I press the DEL key to access BIOS. If I let the system stay off 30 secs, it will cold boot just fine. But it will not reboot with Ctrl-Alt-Del or reset, or by restart in shutdown. I could do all of these prior to fixing my random shutdown issue which is now solved. I am really concerned about not being able to access BIOS. Any ideas? Did I knock a cable loose?

This has started since the updates the other day.

A power up boot (not a restart) does a router reset, not just of the Ethernet line, the whole kit and caboodle, including the external link. It happens in the first Windows startup phase i.e. when the smaller blue 'flag' is on show. Like all DSL routers I've ever known, mine takes a couple of minutes to to a reset.

Whilst the reset is happening Windows tries to establish a link to the 'net, obviously it can't because the router hasn't completed its reset cycle. I've tried the network troubleshooter - guess what, it tells me to reset the router. Which I duly do and wait the customary couple of minutes for the ADSL led to show a solid light.

After another minute or two Windows discovers it has a good connection. I then have to 'nudge' the programs that failed to start properly because they expect the 'net to be there, in order to get them to have another go at doing there start up 'thing'.

As far as I'm concerned the claims that Windows 10 boots faster are now complete and utter nonsense.

Anyone know how to INSTRUCT Windows to leave the &^%#*%* router alone

The Router is a TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router TD-W8960N. Because I rarely use it, the Wifi capabilities are turned 'off'.

Answer:Cold Reboot Resets Router

I had a similar issue with Kaspersky and my VMNG 300 modem (Ambit 300 VirginMedia) and 3rd party router. Any attempt to access the config page of the modem to check power levels etc (192.168.100.1) with Kaspersky enabled locked the modem, all lights locked. Still baffled to this day. No solution, just thought I'd share. Kaspersky off was fine.

Your issue must be querying or requesting a DHCP lease causes it to spaz out. Weird.

Firmware update or try services.msc and settings DHCP to delayed start. Shot in the dark.

Hello! My Vista x64 runs very slowly sometimes or hangs. Usually when I try to open my browser (mozilla). I tried reinstalling mozilla, I've tried running it without addons - doesn't help. i have tried installing chrome - it does the same thing.

this morning i woke it from sleep, clicked on my browser and it just sat - this hangs the entire PC. so i pressed the power button. when it was rebooted, i tried again to use the browser - this usually works, it didn't this morning and i had to reboot it again. then it worked fine. when the little circle is swirling, i have tried to access the task manager thru ctrl-alt-del but it says something about a security error and i can't access when it is hanging (i can access it other times using ctrl-alt-del) - i was hoping to cancel the firefox.exe in the processes.

I have run the following antivirus/antispywares (usually do this weekly) - drcureit, defender, spybot search & destroy, superantispyware, avast, eset, adware, malwarebytes. i have found things and removed them and rerun til it's clean.

i have run the following temp file cleaners - ccleaner, tfc (old timer)

i have defragged

anything else i can do short of re-installing vista or buying a new PC?

Hello guys,

I'm stumped. I have an Intel Quad core system giving me some headaches.

4 memory slots on the motherboard - 2x2GB + 2x1GB sticks.

System cold boot speed is fine, but on a reboot it takes about 300 seconds to go from the "Starting windows" animation to the desktop.

This is a clean install of Windows 7 x64.

Memory tests OK - (PC Check, Windows Memory Diagnostics, Memtest86)

Reboot speed OK with one stick of 2GB
Reboot speed slow with two sticks of 2GB

Reboot speed OK if I replace both 2GB sticks with the 1GB sticks

Has anyone run into anything like this?

Thanks!

Answer:Cold boot OK, very slow reboot

No, but it's an interesting one.

I realise it's time-consuming, but did you check your RAM sticks one at a time and in each socket?

If the problem is RAM-related, you'll need to establish whether a RAM module is faulty or a RAM socket.

Greetings!

Ive been having this problem for about 2 weeks now and its finally starting to annoy me. On first boot my computer just shuts down when it gets to to the windows 10 loading screen, right before the loading circle pops up. it doesn't power itself up again but when i do hit the power button it boots up fine with no problems.

It also works fine when i reboot. its just that first cold boot. ive reverted the BIOS back to defaults and removed any AHCI drivers (was using Intel rapid storage drivers)

here is a blurry video of that happens.



only thing i can think of thats changed recently is aside from general updates but but installing a new CPU HSF and removing some annoying virtual drive software.

any advice would be helpful.
UPDATE

solved this is issue by disabling fast startup in windows 10.

Hello
I have WXP-Pro on my self built computer and also my laptop.

My laptop and desktop computers are WiFi-ed using a Netgear Access Point.
The access point is connected by cat 5 cable to a Direcway DW6000 (2-way satellite) modem.

My Desktop has a PCI Adapter installed and my laptop has a built-in WiFi capability.

I never turn my modem off. If I want to use the internet from my laptop, I just boot it up and I am connected. However, when I boot my desktop, it does not connect. If I go to DOS and use ipconfig /all, I am told that the media is disconnected. I have to reboot to get a connection.

This is a repeatable problem.
How do I fix this?
 

Answer:Network disconnected on cold boot-necessary to reboot

do you have a static ip address. if not, make sure your internet option lan settings are set to find dhcp automatically. if u do have static ip, make sure its set in your lan settings.

Answer:NVIDIA card disappears then re-appears after cold reboot

I was able to reproduce the problem.This happens only when I throttle the CPU to less than 50% from Power Options advanced settings.Keeping it like that for few hours apparently causes a conflict between NVIDIA graphics card and 2nd gen Intel i7.The problem can be considered solved.

upon cold boot or reboot, i'm unable to get a net connection without power cycling the router and many attempts at the various repair connection options. generally it takes about 5 mins to get the connection working. after it's working, it's fine...getting there is a bi$h, tho.

this same problem has shown itself in rc1, rc2, and now, build 5840. any thoughts on this? is there an asrock beta driver ftp to try another lan driver?
 

Answer:lose internet connection on reboot or cold boot

Thats odd.
Sounds like the router isn't assigning an IP to your NIC when it loses its connection (PC reboot)... which to me sounds more like a problem with the router than the NIC, but I've been wrong plenty of times in the past. I guess it'd be easy enough to try another NIC. I'm assuming you're using the onboard integrated NIC? You can try a different driver... you can also try a different NIC altogether... if you can get your hands on one.

I've never cared for any of the onboard NIC solutions available on motherboards... not even the gigabit ports. I've always been a fan of 3Com and Intel NICs. Currently using Intel gigabit PCI NICs.

It reports that the cable is unplugged. It definitely is plugged in, it goes straight into a Netgear Powerline homeplug.

If I then reboot, it connects straight away no problem at all.

I havent installed the motherboards LAN drivers, but thought it might be something else before I tried that?

I have a lenovo y560 (w7 64 home premium) w/ a strange issue - if I reboot the PC it will be stuck in the windows loading screen with no HDD activity.If I power off and power on, its fine every time.I tried a startup repair (automatic) which actually broke it entirely, it couldn't detect BCD or some similar error msg. Tried command line recovery with bootrec, bootsect, no dice, it couldn't even see any installations. So I re-imaged the PC using recovery disks... and the problem is still there! LOLThe complication is that its got rapiddrive. You can see the SSD in device manager and disk management, however Lenovo is hiding everything behind its software, e.g. in disk management you don't see any partitions active at all! I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Anyone got any hints where to look? I am so confused as to why its a problem if its a reboot, but not when its a cold boot.

Answer:Cold boot OK, reboot = stuck on windows loading screen (rapiddrive?)

re-install graphic card drivers, press f8 to load safe mode to check the issue persists on safe mode, too ( may having graphic card driver issue ), try to re-seat your ram sticks and post back if it doesn't fix your issue.

Brand new custom computer running windows 7 64 pro with SP1.
I installed the Os, and drivers from the Asus motherboard disk, on the first day I got it, and
from the 2nd day the computer started having random freezes that vary from 1-3 times per day.
The first time was while watching a video, after that freezes would occur during virtually anything.
Sometimes even just from leaving it on without being used.
These are hard freezes and a hard reboot is the only way to get the computer working again.
During the freeze the mouse cursor disappears, audio stops (if on), and the keyboard and mouse produce no response whatsoever.
I can still open the dvd drive but that's it
I've dealt with a lot of PC problems over the years, using different computers, but none like this.

When I check the Windows event viewer logs, there's nothing I've been able to find about what's causing the freezes. Just the error message of "unexpected shutdown", from me having to do a reboot.
I have"WhoCrased" installed on my computer, and that reports nothing about the freezes either.

My temperatures seem to be fine. I have "CoreTemp" installed and "System Information for Windows".
I ran Memtest with no errors.
I flashed the Bios and there were less freezes for a few days. Then they started reoccurring.
I ran a stress test with no problems, and updated all of the drivers from the manufactures website

Here's my strange problem:

I have a 120gb Seagate HDD that I use for backup storage. I have been using the drive for about 5 months now without a problem. One day I booted it up and realized that BIOS did not detect it. It is currently SECONDARY SLAVE. The strange part is, once I get into winxp, it sees the drive - albeit in PIO ONLY mode instead of DMA. Once I do a reboot (NOT A COMPLETE SHUTDOWN), BIOS sees the drive and it functions normally again - winxp sees the drive as correctly functioning and in DMA mode.

What's strange is that once I start up the computer from a cold boot, go into BIOS, and check what devices are where, BIOS does not see anything in secondary slave at first. Once, I do an "auto detect" it picks up the info on my HDD and it works fine.

I've tried flashing the BIOS and the problem persists. HOWEVER, the drive works fine as secondary MASTER. I swapped my sec. slave and master and the setup works fine. The device that I put into slave (a liteon 811s dvd writer) detects correctly and works fine in windows. I just have no idea why the seagate drive does not detect at first boot.

Here are my specs:
pentium 4 2.4
EliteGroup L4S8A2 mobo latest 1.0E BIOS
PRIMARY MASTER: maxtor 80gb
PRIMARY SLAVE: seagate 80gb
SECONDARY MASTER: liteon 811s
SECONDARY SLAVE: seagate 120gb (problem drive)
OS: WinXP Pro SP1

Please provide any feedback, this is driving me crazy!
 

Answer:VERY strange Seagate HDD problem - cannot detect on cold boot, but detects on reboot

A big drive like that 120G requires an 80-wire IDE flat-cable. It will run on a 40-wire cable but only at a reduced rate. Being on the same cable as a CD, reduces the HD to the DMA/PIO level of that CD.
The CD-drive only needs a 40-wire and will probably not even function with an 80-wire cable.
So unless you get another PCI-IDE controller, you will have some speed and/or compatibility problems.
Make that 120GB master and run that CD as slave, since that works (as you say).

    We recently got 3 T61Ps here where I work.  We are all having a similar problem.  When we use them at home on our wireless network they will randomly freeze up at some point.  The cursor will spin, then the window stops responding, then goes gray.  Sometimes the window background turns black.  This leads to a hard reboot to get it back.  Most of the time a reboot has no problems.  However, I've already had to do a rescue once because a critical file during the boot sequence was missing or corrupt after the hard reboot.  I just had a coworker experience the problem this last weekend and he had to use the blue rescue button to recover and found out a registry corruption problem would not let a rescue occur, so he is now reloading it from scratch.  I need to understand what the issue is with these and wireless.  Our wireless drivers, I believe, are up to date.  My driver for Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN says its using driver 11.5.0.36 (11/27/2007).  Anyone else experiencing this problem, or understands the root cause of this would be greatly appreciated.  This only happens to us when using wireless as I use the laptop all day long on the dock with an ethernet connection.  The laptops came shipped with Vista Business SP1 (32-bit) and we have applied all patches from both Microsoft and Lenovo.

Answer:Thinkpad T61P freezing randomly when using wireless - cold reboot needed

I'd like to report an update to this.  All 3 of us have disabled turbo memory and the problem has so far not come back.  Now I am wondering if SP1 introduced a condition which freezes the turbo cache under certain conditions (wireless being one of them).

Hi there,This is my first time posting an issue with my Thinkpad R60e - I've had it for almost 2 years without any major problems and now something serious seems to have happened and I can't figure out what!  My work is in IT Helpdesk, so when something baffles me I usually take it as a bad sign..!A few weeks ago my R60e starting freezing for no apparent reason.  The cursor just stops dead and the screen freezes.  No key has any impact and the only way to get rid of the frozen screen is to press down on the start button until it finally switches off from the power supply.  The only consistency I've noticed is that I am always in the process of typing text when the crash happens - whether it's in my web browser or Excel - I cannot remember it ever crashing when I was not typing.  One time, it even crashed before I had gotten into it, when I was typing my password to log into Windows!  It doesn't crash every time I type text, but when the crash occurs I *will* be typing.  (So now, every time I reach toward the keyboard, I take a deep breath..!)I experimented by uninstalling Firefox (as i had recently updated it) and also by uninstalling all addons in there, but the problem keeps happening.  I removed all unnecessary hardware (external drive, ipod etc) and booted up, but to no avail.  There is no regular frequency - it can be OK for hours, then it can also crash 3 or 4 times in another hour.My main question here is how I can find out ...

Hi again,Well after much trial and error I finally figured out what was causing this, so I thought I should post it here in case someone else has a similar problem and their appeals for help similarily draw a blank ... I mentioned in my original post about my recent battery failure - well it did indeed turn out to be the causing factor!I had already uninstalled so much software, ran anti-virus & anti-spyware scans, used Regcleaner, even edited startup items to boot only with the bare essentials - but all to no avail.  So I was becoming more and more convinced it was hardware-related.I read somewhere about how Power Management software could cause this kind of problem and so I uninstalled and disabled anything to do with power management, but this was not enough.  I even booted into my BIOS and also Thinkpad Rescue & Recovery state. I ran various diagnostic tools in there and the only errors reported were related to my dead battery.I began researching in various web forums about battery problems and I was surprised to learn that I could actually run my Thinkpad without any battery attached at all.  Furthermore, I was delighted to discover that I did not even have to go hunting for screwdrivers and allen keys - that one click of my fingernail would swiftly detach the battery from my laptop...So I rebooted my Thinkpad without a battery and just the AV cable .. and the issue disappeared!  I could not believe it was this simple, so I even waited 3 days ...

I have one old hardrive I am using which is a HITACHI DESKSTAR 160GB.

Running Windows XP Pro - legit

My problems:
1) Random BSoD - This occurs randomly, usually when the computer is idle doing nothing or just downloading. The page dumps (attatched) are not consistent either. Usually won't occur for at least 5 hours.

2) Cold boot BSoD - After the computer has been left off for a bit, when I try starting my computer when the machine is cold. (I live in NZ and it's winter, so when I say the machine is cold, It's really quite cold) After the windows boot screen, just before the login is supposed to load up, I will get a BSoD flash up quickly and the computer restarts itself.

I work weekdays so I usually spend my debugging for the weekends.

Answer:Random BSoD and Cold Boot BSoD

I'd say the best clue is both sticks of ram DO fail, and also when they are both in. Try checking the ram multipliers in the bios and reset to match the ram specs (manufacturers website and motherboard websites should tell you acceptable values.) Unfortunately, not every combination of ram and motherboard get on well. Generic ram may not be up to scratch.

Other suggestions I have is try running extended periods without the graphic card (using default video if there is one integrated on the motherboard, or borrow an old video card if possible). Also disconnect any CD/DVD drivers. If there IS onboard video, disable it in the bios.

Check control panel system hardware / system hardware for IRQ conflicts or other things marked with a warning. Look for updated bios driver for the motherboard.

Howard can check the minidumps to possibly identify the offending software or hardware.

We have a C460 all-in-one that generates a "no operating system" error 1962 ONLY from cold starts.  If we restart or go to the BIOS, save, and start it works fine. We have tried a roll back and that does not help.  Cold starts in "SAFE" mode do start. SATA HCI (spelling?) in BIOS enabled/disabled has no effect. Any help would be appreciated! John

Answer:C460 error 1962 (no O/S) on cold start only, not on reboot or from BIOS start.

Hi radi0j0hn, welcome to the forum.
 
     You didn't say which OS you are using, Win 7, 8.1, or 10. However, it doesn't seem to make that much difference.
 
This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
      The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.      The hard disk is damaged.      Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).      An incompatible partition is marked as Active.      A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
 
     It could also be caused by a broken, or defective hard drive cable, which could account for the problem being spurious. 
 
     Please use our Lenovo search, at the top of this page for  "no operating system error 1962", and make sure you change the "board" level, to "Community" for the best results. It should generate other users who have experienced the same problem, on a number of various systems, and possible solutions.

Ok so, my computer (running Windows XP Home Edition SP2) will restart at the very begining of the startup. It turns off and turns back on. Then it goes to a black screen, that says something about safe mode, safe mode with networking etc. along with a 30 second count down. But it will restart again right at the begining and it does this a number of times before booting up to windows, when the screen usually turns into 4-Bit mode. I have deleted the windows software 3 times and it stop for maybe 2 weeks and then does this again. There are no viruses and there is no spyware (as i used ad-aware to get rid of it). The computer has almost no programs on it other than the ones that come with it out of the box, And AVG and Ad-Aware. I don't no what to do.
Any help would be greatly abliged.

it's a busy site, sometimes posts get overlooked. Bribery isn't required.
It looks like a basic driver issue, should be solvable without hair pulling.
I'll have a look at you driver dump and post back in a bit.


Code:
KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.

Hi

The BSOD, that happens on a cold start up (when the computer has been turned off overnight) has been happening on random occasions ever since I built the computer. I've reinstalled windows, twice. I had thought it might be a hardware issue and have checked each stick of memory with memcheck for about 5 hours each - no errors. Overclocked my i7-6700K to 4.4Ghz and ran prime95 (only for a few minutes though) and no errors (although errors at 4.5Ghz but no BSOD). Back now to defaults.

I have recently reset the bios and thinking this may have resolved the problem, seemed to be running fine so I deleted previous dmp files.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello everyone, having BSOD at every cold boot.
This is happening on my desktop (first build I made), hardware is:
MB: Asus Maximus VIII Gene
CPU: Intel i5-6600k
RAM: 2x 8GB Crucial Ballistix
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Hoping this is some driver problem but seems to me more like RAM or (hope really not) something on the MB.
Only remember it happening, maybe, after installing every driver manually for de CPU, iGPU and MB drivers.
GPU only installed it a week later, so has nothing to do with it. After installing the GPU I have uninstalled the iGPU drivers (although only the PCI-E slot is active for GPU part in the MB).
I have testes the RAM with memtest+ and no erros, stress tested CPU and no problem there either.

Maybe it's a hardware problem but want to know what the BSOD dumps say.

Dump files are in the attachments.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Question: BSOD on cold boot

Hi,

every time I do a cold boot, my computer crashes with bluescreen at exactly the same time, the Win7 loading screen. After this, I turn the computer off, than i turn off the power supply and a few seconds later, I turn it on again. If I now start the computer, it will boot without any problems as well as running high performance applications. I never had a bluescreen after this annyoing procedure.
EDIT: This error occurs since I've set up the computer.

I tried ram timings from G.Skill support forum, but it doesn't change anything.

So i decided to install Microsofts debugging tool, to analyze the BSOD, and guess what! I really need your help now, because I have no conception of analyzing bluescreens and stuff which comes with it.

My system configuration should be viewable in my profile details.

Question: BSOD on cold boot

Hi all,

Event viewer also shows this: Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC0000001. I believe this preceeded the bsod.

Answer:BSOD on cold boot

The Asus P5 series of boards had memory issues with early installations of Win7. I dunno if this applies to Win8, but I'd suggest trying to set your memory timings/settings/voltages according to the RAM manufacturer's specifications (NOT using the Auto setting in the BIOS).

NTStatus of 0xc0000001 is "Operation failed" (which we know already!)

Both BSOD's are listed as probably being caused by HssDrv.sys - a component of HotSpotShield
HotSpotShield is known to cause issues on some Win7 systems, so it's reasonable to assume that it's causing similar issues on Win8. To add to this, your HotSpotShield drivers date from 2009 and may not even be compatible with Win7.

To test this, please uninstall HotSpotShield and see if the BSOD's stop.

Another likely cause of the BSOD's is the 2005 version of the ASACPI.sys (Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver). Please update to the latest version available from your motherboard's driver download page at Asus' website. Also, please note that Asus doesn't support Win7 or Win8 for this mobo, so finding compatible drivers will be difficult for you.

Download from here (select Vista 64 bit as the OS): http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5K/#download
In this case, DO NOT use the driver listed under the ATK section (this driver dates from 2007 and isn't Win7 compatible)
Instead, expand the Utilities section. The first entry will be "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista... Read more

I got a custom built pc for christmas and it has been getting BSOD's since it was built and they have only been happening on cold boots, and the file that is having problems is ntoskrnl. I would love if someone could find the problem that has been going on for weeks.

Answer:BSOD on only cold boots

Hi Colinator01,

Welcome to the 10forums.

Please uninstall OpenHardwareMonitor, the last update was in december 2013 and it uses a very old driver.

Please check MSI for driver updates for the sata controller drivers, I believe they are included in the chipset but can't say for sure.
MSI Global 64

Please uninstall the AMD software for the time of troubleshooting, the driver below is used with AMD software, is old and is known for causing bluescreens in Windows 7.
I know that Windows 10 and Windows 7 are 2 different operating systems, but I would like to start with getting rid of the old drivers.

Code:

Question: BSOD on cold start

Hi all,

I'm wondering if any of you experts might have an idea why I'm experiencing BSOD on cold start. I had issues with Windows7 but experience the same after upgrading to Win8 Pro.
Do you think a more general issue like insufficient power could be reason for those issues?

Thanks in advance,
starage

Answer:BSOD on cold start

What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?
What equipment in installed in your case?

Your BIOS dates from 210. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:




1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD. I usually can't see this info in the reports, so I rely on you to check it.
2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to. If involved these should be visible in the memory dump - but it doesn't hurt to check manually.



Out of 7 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking... Read more

Question: Cold Boot Bsod

You guys may remember me from my post last week where my mouse and keyboard both lost power and I couldnt even boot into safe mode. Well prior to that I had been told by one of the admins on the site that my HDD may be failing. So..I bought a new one(seagate barracuda) and did a clean install of a new windows 7 x64 with sp1. Now...I still got a bsod on a cold boot, started messing with my ram (testing out only 2 sticks instead of 4) didnt help. However the problem i faced today is that upon loging in to my account nothing seemed to work, avast anti virus wouldnt work, firefox would not open, very sketchy...I booted back up into safe mode uninstalled avast, restarted and everything works fine, now I have indicated both avast and avg (when i had it) caused bsods...whats up with that?

Answer:BSOD on Cold Boot (Please Help)

Only 59 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 66 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

You have 4 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Gigabyte ET6 (EasyTune6) is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (the driver is GVTDrv64.sys). Please uninstall it. Also uninstall the Easy Saver software (gdrv.sys) as it can cause the same issues.

All of the BSOD's blame Alpham164.sys - a driver component of your Ideazon ZBoard/Ideazon Fang. These drivers date from 2007 and are likely not compatible with Win8. Please download and install the latest, Win8 compatible drivers for this device. If there are no Win8 compatible drivers, please uninstall it from your systems and physically remove the device in order to test and see if it's causing the BSOD's.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Question: BSOD w/cold boot

As w/many posters, I have had the BSOD w/a cold boot recurring for several weeks. It does not occur w/a warm reboot. I haven't installed any new hardware and this issue seems to have arisen spontaneously (something I'm sure you've heard many times before).

Greetings,

My system is home-built, apx 1.5 years old. I was doing a system update (drivers, BIOS, etc) a couple of weeks ago, shortly thereafter the PC started acting unstable every now and then, sometimes BSOD, sometimes it would go into a boot loop.

The PC had a mild overclock so I restored Optimized Settings in the BIOS, and then reinstalled Win7 from disk as the PC became more and more unstable. I installed the latest drivers from the manufacturer's websites. I removed and cleaned the memory modules and swapped the modules into different slots (ie number 1 into slot 3, etc). I also removed, cleaned and reseated the Video Card.

The PC now crashes every morning when it is cold booted, eventually after it warms up it runs fine. I had it set to run Win Mem Test on startup this morning, immediately it told me I had hardware errors, but when it restarted there was no error report. If I run Win Mem Test again it reports no errors. Also, if I set the memory to manufacturer's spec (no overclock) it will go into a POST, start Windows, black screen, POST cycle...even if the PC is warmed up.

I have also changed AV from the original MS Security Ess. to Avast just to troubleshoot.

During this mornings crashes I got two different error message so I have included both dmp files. System specs are in the profile that I set up when I registered.

I am out of ideas.

TIA

Answer:BSOD upon cold boot.

Have you tried testing your memory using a bootable program such as Memtest?

If so, (and it tested OK), try removing all of your sticks of memory, and
inserting only one at a time while running your PC. See if that helps.

Hello all, I made my own computer in the summer, everything went fine until i turned it off for a night and it took around 20 restarts until it would come back on, just from BSOD's right after the "Windows is loading" black screen with the emblem on it.

Here are my system specs DxDiag.txt | Game Front

The only thing i saw on the BSOD is Bad header and something about memory.

When it goes by fast it just looks like a paragraph.

If anyone could help me with this it'd be great.

Question: BSOD on cold boot

Hey everyone, this has been a problem thats really been bothering me.

So far this hasnt led to any long term damage, but recently (it seems to have started ever since one night i updated windows on shutdown) When ever i turn my computer on in the morning, is has a bsod on me. Im never there when it happens, I useally turn it on and go take a shower, when i come back though ive noticed it says it recovered from and unexpected shut down.
I used blue screen veiwer and it says that its being caused by the dxgkrnl.sys and the bug check code is 0x00000116.

its really frustrating me, i hope its not a hardware issue but it seems like it is, my motherboard is pretty old (atleast 5 or 4 years) and i have it running the best video card and CPU it can run. Im not quite sure how to check my specs and im not sure if theres a certain format im supposed to post like in this forum.

I have looked around and a lot of the fixes have been updating their drivers but all mine are fully upgraded.

EDIT- I forgot to mention, after the blue screen occurs i can restart as much as i want. its useally occurs when i have the pc off for about 5 hours. I turn it on in the morning, get the bsod, then it works perfectly fine. then i turn it off and head to school. when i get home the same thing useally occurs. Im never there when it happens and it doesnt stop me from using my computer and gaming or browsing the internet. im just worried my computer is going to get worse.

Thanks in advance, Andrew

I've been getting a weird BSOD everytime I cold boot in the morning. However, unlike the other cold boot BSOD's I've read about on the site, my comp doesn't blue screen until after i've passed the loading screen, and I log into my desktop.

It's really weird, but I always have enough time to log in, load msn and do stuff. Then, while i'm in the middle of surfing the net (basically, not very high demanding stuff), the computer would BSOD, and restart. Then there would be absolutely no problems until the next time i turn off my computer and turn it on the next morning.

I've already run memtest (I previously had BSOD problems, fixed with a clean reformat and reinstallation of windows 7) and there are no problems with my ram.

Yesterday, I tried to hibernate and see if there would be a change. There was not. I attached the minidump for this bluescreen. Let me know if I need to provide additional details. Thanks for your help!

Answer:Cold Boot BSOD....I believe...

Don't happen to have G.Skill ram do you? Im having the exact same problem, and hear that it could either be a power supply problem, or particularly G.Skill ram problem. The next time you go to switch your PC on, instead of booting into windows, run a memtest.

Good Luck

Hello, I'm new to this forum. But I work on computers as a hobby and a way to get some extra money, but I've ran into a problem I cannot fix, I have an HP desktop computer with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
When starting the computer I get HP logo, windows logo, then a blank screen.
If I keep trying. It eventually works fine and continues to work fine (starts up, no crashes errors etc.)
But then if it's been turned off for five or ten minutes, back to blank screen. With a mouse curser.
I've tried:
Sfc scan
Chkdsk scan
Malware bytes
Adw cleaner
Resetting the BIOS settings
Event log comes back fine too.
I have no idea what more to do, the owner of the PC said she tried a system restore, but there was no luck.

Hello and welcome DS mate some specs would be good System Info - See Your System Specs

Now I usually start with the very basic stuff as you have and then move onto more basic stuff read my ditty and post back a pic of what you get - if you can.

Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 -Download < download the right bit version andclose the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power sectionwhere you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. Now the section you want will be labelled - fpr example Asus boards usually have "Nuvoton" an d Gigabyte boards "ITE" in any case the section you want will have Vbatt or VBAT in it (dead give away)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for thatbut for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main lefthand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in andthen click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in theright hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds andother essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Now the volts must be within 5% +/- of the required value see this

System Crashes Description
BSOD AT STARTUP. Whenever I do a "cold boot" (the computer has been shutdown at least three hours) there is a random blue screen stop either (a) just before the Welcome Screen or (b) less than two minutes after the desktop has loaded. At some rare cases, the system freezes before the BIOS post screen, and the motherboard LED:s indicate an issue with the memory.

The BSOD only and always occurs at cold boot. Otherwise, the computer is seemingly stable, no matter if I am gaming or surfing.

THE RAM GETS FRIED. Apart from the first week after the build, I have been running no more than 2 sticks of RAM simultaneously. Although I started out on SPD speeds, I have tinkered with RAM speeds to try to get a stable mode. I have never raised any voltages manually, and the DRAM voltage has never been set to above 1.65V (XMP).

Nevertheless, two out of the three sticks in the kit are now unusable due to visibly fried contacts. Both fried sticks have been running in the same slot (B1).

Attachments and Notes
Some Crash Dumps and other material for analysis is included in the attached file. Unfortunately, I have a Swedish install of Windows. The warnings included in the health report concerns the network settings (I have recently disabled all microsoft network cards and the homegroup services).

NOTE: I have swapped the PSU and video card with my three-year-old computer running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. The older computer has experienced... Read more

Answer:BSOD at Cold Boot Win 7 Pro x64

Crud!!! I lost the long post that I just made!!!

Oh well, here's the gist of it:

8 memory dumps from 12 May 2010 to the present (4 days)
5 different STOP errors, with 6 different causes blamed
Due to the number of different errors, this is most likely a hardware problem.

I suspect that there are issues with both the motherboard/memory and the D-Link device. To test this, please uninstall the D-Link software/drivers and remove the D-Link device from your system temporarily.

Then run Memtest on that one good stick in each slot (save the B1 slot for last).
Then run Memtest on that one good stick in the B1 slot (it may fry the stick - but we need to test that slot to make sure it's the issue).

If it's proven that the B1 slot is bad (or any other slot for that matter), you'll have to get a new motherboard (if it's still under warranty, contact the seller for an RMA authorization). There's no sense in using a motherboard with problems - as this may cause further problems in the future.

Once that problem is remedied, then we can work on the D-Link device. We have seen a lot of issues with USB network devices using Vista drivers on Windows 7 systems.

I, personally, recommend using an internal wifi card (rather than a USB device) - they are more reliable and more likely to be compatible with Win7.

So, please let us know if you've used Windows 7 drivers for you D-Link device.

Answer:BSOD After cold boot

So apparently you are having this issue over years.

Some HP bloatware are causing the issue, as the crash dumps report. It is called the HP Mobile Data Protection System Disk Filter.

Code:
hpdskflt HP Filter c:\windows\system32\drivers\hpdskflt.sys Kernel Driver Yes Boot Running OK Normal No Yes
I'd recommend you to Clean Up Factory Bloatware, with a special reference to Point #13





Quote:
13. Consider a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is often better than getting a new computer considering how pre-installed bloatware can corrupt Windows 7 even if it's completely cleaned up.


Let us know how it went.

In a nutshell my system seems to BSOD while or soon after booting from cold after it's been shutdown for an extended period. Normally 2 days when I am away from home. It's seems ok coming out of sleep mode.

I am also seeing the occasional BSOD while the system is up but these are quite rare.

I have tried multiple rebuilds / new power supply etc and the problem persists. Overclockers (uk) have had the system back twice. First time they swapped the Motherboard, 2nd they saw no problems.

I can also confirm that once the system is running I can run memtest+ and prime 95 all day without a problem if you get past the 'warm up' stage.

I got a custom built pc for christmas and it has been getting BSOD's since it was built and they have only been happening on cold boots, and the file that is having problems is ntoskrnl. I would love if someone could find the problem that has been going on for weeks.

Answer:BSOD on only cold boots

Hi Colinator01,

Welcome to the 10forums.

Please uninstall OpenHardwareMonitor, the last update was in december 2013 and it uses a very old driver.

Please check MSI for driver updates for the sata controller drivers, I believe they are included in the chipset but can't say for sure.
MSI Global 64

Please uninstall the AMD software for the time of troubleshooting, the driver below is used with AMD software, is old and is known for causing bluescreens in Windows 7.
I know that Windows 10 and Windows 7 are 2 different operating systems, but I would like to start with getting rid of the old drivers.

Question: Cold Boot BSOD

Been dealing with this ever since I built this PC...Cannot seem to find out what is causing it. First here is what I have experienced thus far. First (this problem has been absolutely persistent. If the machine has been shut off for a few hours (cold boot) I will get a BSOD immediately after logging in. This is typically a memory management however there has been irql not less or equal. The next issue: About 3 months ago both my keyboard and mouse (both USB) lost power at the (Starting Windows) screen. They would not work in safe mode either...however ps2 did work...I got pissed enough about this that I went bought a new hard drive and completely did a clean install of windows. That fixed the problem (other than now I have a 1tb hrd drive sitting in a drawer that isnt being used). The next problem arose about 2 weeks ago. Upon getting to the Login screen there is only 1 user listed (the last user to login to windows) the other opening just says other user and to login to that account you must type both the user name and the password. I have not lost any data other than when I replaced the HDD. I just want a solution to the problem and there hasnt been anyone that has had a clue yet. Test that i have ran include: extended HDD diagnostics from Wester Digital which was on my old HDD (it passed). Memtest for 7 passes...with 0 errors. Windows memory diagnostics with zero errors. PrimeTime CPU: maxed my cpu out for around an hr with zero problems. Here are my specs:

Answer:Cold Boot BSOD

Drivers are referencing what looks like valid memory addresses, but careful scrutiny makes it appear that they lost their contents, and what was valid is no longer. I also noticed a bit flip in one of the crashdumps. Bit flips are caused by PSU, Mobo, CPU or RAM problems. All these symptoms plus the fact that practically all of them are memory-related, gives me strong speculation that this is hardware-related.

First of all, ditch ever using Windows memory test. It isn't very thorough nor accurate. Memtest86+ is a better alternative. I personally have not tested PrimeTime, but Prime95 is the de facto standard for CPU testing.

Second, as you yourself noticed the PSU isn't all that grand. Understand that the PSU is probably the most crucial item to any computer setup as it is the heart that pumps the blood to the rest of the system. It is never a good idea to purchase a cheap power supply, as I can assure you that a good majority of people that come through these forums have had crashes resulting in using a poor brand PSU. On the off-chance this isn't PSU, then it can very well be motherboard, since both present similar behavior when bad.

If you are still determined to not make amends and purchase a suitable power supply for your system, you may (albeit possibly futile) continue with some hardware tests:

RAM: Memtest86+ (overnight)
CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Blend; overnight)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

Also make sure you aren't overclocking your system. Set... Read more

Hi everyone, new to the forums so go easy on me . I have read about a half dozen similar threads and still have yet to find a solution.

I've been an avid computer person who puts together systems in his spare time, and have never seen this problem before.

What is happening is each cold boot of the computer, I will ALWAYS BSOD within the first few minutes, after the mouse starts to lag really bad and skip around. If i IMMEDIATELY restart the computer, it will literally run for weeks without a hiccup.

I have replaced nearly every part of my rig minus the CPU and Memory. I've put in a new MOBO, SSD/SATA drives, Video card, Power supply. Flashed the BIOS with the latest version. The only thing left is the CPU.

I've recently ran the windows memory diagnostics everything passed fine, but I've bought new memory just in case - will try that tonight.

I have attached the files as requested by the forum. If I need anything else please let me know.

I am at wits end with this rig, i've dumped a lot of money, and having to restart it right after boot up seems silly!

Thx in advance,
Trev

Hi,

I'm getting BSOD every cold start of my PC every day. After rebooting everything runs fine.
The system is new (it was built a week ago). memtest86 showed no errors and clean windows reinstall didn't help as well.
Yesterday I updated all drivers/BIOS via MSI live update, and today I've got a new error - this time it was DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (I have never seen this error before).

Let me know if you need any additional information (tests, system info etc.)

Here is my system spec:

Hello everyone, having BSOD at every cold boot.
This is happening on my desktop (first build I made), hardware is:
MB: Asus Maximus VIII Gene
CPU: Intel i5-6600k
RAM: 2x 8GB Crucial Ballistix
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Hoping this is some driver problem but seems to me more like RAM or (hope really not) something on the MB.
Only remember it happening, maybe, after installing every driver manually for de CPU, iGPU and MB drivers.
GPU only installed it a week later, so has nothing to do with it. After installing the GPU I have uninstalled the iGPU drivers (although only the PCI-E slot is active for GPU part in the MB).
I have testes the RAM with memtest+ and no erros, stress tested CPU and no problem there either.

Maybe it's a hardware problem but want to know what the BSOD dumps say.

Dump files are in the attachments.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Answer:BSOD at every cold boot

Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Hi

The BSOD, that happens on a cold start up (when the computer has been turned off overnight) has been happening on random occasions ever since I built the computer. I've reinstalled windows, twice. I had thought it might be a hardware issue and have checked each stick of memory with memcheck for about 5 hours each - no errors. Overclocked my i7-6700K to 4.4Ghz and ran prime95 (only for a few minutes though) and no errors (although errors at 4.5Ghz but no BSOD). Back now to defaults.

I have recently reset the bios and thinking this may have resolved the problem, seemed to be running fine so I deleted previous dmp files.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

3 weeks ago I upgraded my Vista ultimate x64 to Windows 7 ultimate 64.
And now I have a strange problem.
Sometimes when I start the computer (cold boot) I get an BSOD with CNG.sys
It keeps remaining everytime I reboot.
When I start the recovery option and let the system restore the pc the problem is solved and Windows 7 starts perfect. Sometimes when I boot the pc it goes without a problem and othertimes I get the BSOD and need to do a recovery.

I thought that VMWare Workstation could be the problem and uninstalled the software but it didnt help. Even the driver updates by windows update didnt solve it.
Im thinking now about a reinstall with a clean install but maybe any1 has an other option.

I purchased my HP Compaq 8710p laptop from Purdue University in May of 2008. A little after that it was stolen from me. Thankfully I had it LoJack secured, and they were able to recover it in London. When I got my computer back, however, the Windows XP that it had come pre-installed with was replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I never had an issue with it for two years until now.

It seems like my computer overheats more often then it should, especially if it is on my lap or the fan is covered at all. This may be normal but even more annoying than that is whenever it shuts down from an overheat or it goes in to sleep mode or I ever have to manually shut it down, it gets to the Windows loading screen where the colors come in from the sides, then freezes, flashes the BSOD and then reboots. When I try to run the Repair, it take about half an hour then says Repair couldn't fix the computer.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hello All,

I hope you can help me with my BSOD error.

When starting up my system after it's been off for a few hours I get a BSOD 9 out of 10 times.
It's the STOP code 0xf4 (parameter1: 000003)

When I reboot after that it usually boots and operates normally. Sometimes it BSOD's again with the same error.

My specs:
Maximus VI Hero (Bios: 1002)
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB (FW: EXT0BB0Q, latest according to Samsung Magician)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
Memory: Crucial 8GB

The SSD is in AHCI mode with hot pluggable enabled.

Things I have tried:
- I reinstalled Win7 Ultimate x64 from the new SSD without any drives attached.
- I ran memtest for a day (9 passes) no errors found
- I replaced the SATA cables
- I moved the SATA cables to different (Intel) ports. (SSD port 1, HDD port 2. Is now: SSD Port 3 HDD port 5)
- Changed Win7's power settings to High performance and with drive to never enter sleep mode

I have the most recent driver versions installed from Asus' website.

Any help and suggestions are appreciated.

Answer:BSOD 0xf4 during 'cold' boot

Hi quercus.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
I hope that the SSD is running with the up to date firmware? I see that you have magician installed. If not by any chance, update it.

Update Asmedia AHCI controller from Station-Drivers - Asmedia drivers & firmwares.

Post a screenshot of all your SSD and HDDs using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Hi,

I have for about 6 months now been experiencing ?random? BSODs relating to 0x000000f4.
This has gotten so bad that 2 weeks ago I did a full clean install of Win 7 64 ultimate having previously updated all my BIOS, Firmware etc. to latest versions and am running latest drivers and updates for everything else.
I have replaced all my RAM and reconfigured the PCIe order of my GPU and Revo to a variety of set ups.
I have tried running basics installs with minimum Software, am running completely new A/V software and tried stabilising my BIOS by setting fixed voltages and removing Marvell driver components (neither have worked ? I had read these may be issues).
Nothing has worked and I am getting so annoyed I might go and buy an iMac

As for the system, main hardware parts as follows (all have latest drivers, bios, firmware etc):

CPU = Intel i7 980x
MOBO = ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme
RAM = Corsair Dominator GT 2000 3 x 4Gb
Primary Drive = OCZ Revodrive 3 X2
Other Drives = 1x OCZ Vertex 2 + 2x WDC Raptors (mk2s)
GPU = Asus GTX580 Direct Cu II
Blu Ray = 2 x LG
Software I have kept to a minimum ATM to make things easier on myself (all latest patches):

I deactivated after the first crash yesterday but reactivated again when I relaised it was rather obviously called on running the PowerDirector program (which re intialised it), it was on'ly after this that the second crash happened last night. So, I deactivated again yesterday and when I turned on the machine this morning, it started fine .. co-incidence ? possibly, will wait and see - as ever.

Hey Guys, I was looking for a bit of help.

I was having some problems with Windows 8 Pro. Two days now, on a cold bootup, it crashes and reboots, then outputs everything to a minidump file. It looks like it's pointing to ntoskrnl.exe as the issue, but I was wondering if someone could help point me in the right direction. Not sure if it's the HDD, so any help would be appreciated.

I zipped up the two minidump files as well as my .nfo file (MS32 info) as well. I hope you guys can lend a hand.

Thanks! :)

Hi there,

Are you using a desktop or laptop computer? Please post your computer specs. Posting computer specs definitely helps troubleshoot computer issues more efficiently. Did the computer come with Windows 8 Pro pre-installed? Or did you install the operating system on the computer yourself from a Windows 8 Pro CD?

Hi everyone,

From my title you can guess I'm having problems from cold start.

If I switch my PC on first thing in the morning I get a lovely BSOD "What Joy" , when I eventually get past the BSOD by reset and selecting start in normal mode it starts up ok. When I've finnished using it I always turn it fully off including mains power, but if I were to turn it on later the same evening it powers up fine as if BSOD never existed.

Every time I've had a BSOD it throws up a different code, I've done a "Who's Crashed" and below are the results

I bought all the components for a new desktop, assembled the computer myself, and installed windows 7 64bit home premium this past fall 2010. I have had trouble with Blue Screens Of Death (BSODs) ever since. I finally found out what was wrong with my computer thanks to a link in one of the threads on this forum. The thread was http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...cold-boot.html. The link in the thread was Memory Diagnostics. The problem I had was simple: I had bad RAM (memory).

I want to post this message to alert people to the possibility that RAM can seem to be fine when your system is warm (has already been running for a while). The RAM will pass the memtest86+ tests Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool with flying colors, only to produce a BSOD at start up the next morning after the computer has been turned off all night.

No offence taken if this thread is removed. I just thought it might be helpful to share my experience with this problem, and inform the community that there is one more case of this problem. Among the solutions I attempted before finding the actual culprit were the following: Using the XMP settings in BIOS with or without overclocking beyond the standard 1066Mhz, setting the memory timings by hand in the BIOS, setting the memory voltage to 1.65v in the BIOS (to match memory specifications), changing the Load-Line calibration in BIOS, re-installing windows on the hard drive and then on the SSD.

Hello everybody, I'm new here and thought this was the best place to (hopefully) get some answers.

I just upgraded my MB, CPU and RAM to my current specs and on occasion, during a cold boot, i will get a BSOD. Obviously, I have no idea why this is. I have ran Memtestx86 overnight to no avail. All components are less than 6 months old. The BSOD never stops me from booting, as it will make a memory dump and restart successfully and this only occurs maybe twice a week.

I have attached the info outline in the BSOD posting guide along with this post.

The device errors reported in the Performance Monitor Report are probably my phone, as I had it plugged in at the time of the report. Although I could be wrong.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would take the time to review this.

Thank you.

I have been having the strangest behavior from my EVGA SR-2 dual Xeon system for the past week or so. The only new software that has been added is the beta nVidia driver 358.59. Now, I could just uninstall it and revert back to the WHQL driver (355.98) that I had installed, but the BSOD is so odd, that I thought someone might be interested in it.

It is the "irql" BSOD and it occurs only after the first cold boot of the day. Turning the computer off and then cold booting it again never throws the BSOD. The system runs flawlessly otherwise. Here's how I solved it temporarily. I turned on the "Fast Start" option in Win 10. Why I hadn't done this before anyway, I don't know. Now, the system boots up like lightning and never throws the BSOD.

My zip file is attached for the curious, helpful and otherwise.

Answer:New Laptop BSOD on Cold Boot

Hi Breezy, im still learning how to read BSOD codes and mini dumps so i cant help you there, but in the meantime until someone comes along with more knowledge I can direct you to issues that can cause BSOD.

First can you start the computer in SAFEMODE WITH NETWORKING

If you can and it is stable then run MSCONFIG from a RUN or CMD box

Goto STARTUP and disable all startup items.

Reboot into normal windows

If reboot ok and stable, run a quick virus scan

If clean goto WINDOWS UPDATE and install the important and recommended updates, it may take a few reboots

If it crashes then restart in SAFEMODE and run MSCONFIG again and click the SERVICES tab, click the HIDE MICROSOFT SERVICES box then disable all services, then reboot normally.

Try to continue the updates

If the crashes continue in normal mode then restart the computer in VGA mode from the SAFEMODE menu on boot..

Then finish your updates and try to reboot in normal mode.

If you laptop is only stable in VGA or SAFEMODE then uninstall your video drivers from the device manager menu.

Let me know how this goes and well continue from there..

This is the weirdest thing. I get a blue screen and either a restart or shutdown depending on the day whenever I try to start the machine after it has been sitting for an hour or more. When the computer is warmed up it doesn't happen. After failing a couple of times, it will start without a problem...I would think hard disk because of the error, but if it were a physical problem with the HDD then wouldn't it happen all the time and not just when it is cold?


Thanks in advance

Answer:UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME BSOD on a cold boot

When your machine is cold and fails to boot, go into BIOS and change boot sequence to boot from CD first. Try and boot up using your windows CD or another bootable CD, can you boot ok?
A startup problem like this may not be a hard drive but your motherboard, I had a chaintech board once and had similar starting problems. Eventually the motherboard failed due to leaking capacitors, which in my case was repaired under warranty.
If this was a hard disk error, then I would expect it to fail all the time, the fact that a couple of starts gets your system booting normally, may be either capacitors on the motherboard or a psu problem.
Take the lid off and examine your motherboard with a torch:
http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=195

youre looking for discolouration on the motherboard or sometimes the capacitor case splits and leaks electrolyte.

Answer:BSOD Cold Boot 0x000000124

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .





Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.
