Y510P, Bluescreen on cold boot, restarts just fine

Question: Y510P, Bluescreen on cold boot, restarts just fine

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, (which I think is normal) but it is once again doing the cold boot > thinking > blue screen > restart > boots into windows. If the computer restarts from windows, it boots into windows no problem, it only blue screens from the cold boot. Something I read, about the boot instructions being placed in the first sector, of the first disk, makes me wonder if the issue might be the "disk 0 SSD", and the rapid storage not being set up properly. (I've installed the Intel Rapid storage, while the SSD did not have a partition, and it looks to have partitioned it now, but there is no D: drive like there used to be.) Any ideas? Has anyone else ever had this trouble with 8.1 and Lenovo y510P?

Preferred Solution: Y510P, Bluescreen on cold boot, restarts just fine

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.)

Hello,

I'm new to the 7 forum, though I have been reading the posts now for several weeks now and have found them to be really helpful. Thanks!

I've been tinckering with my new Win 7 -64bit self-built machine, and I have to say that I haven't felt this excited about a new computer since my first encounter with a TRS-80-2...
Anyhow, I've had a consistant pattern of BlueScreen Page_Fault errors, and I'm very lost. Once the system reboots after the first crash, it runs excellent from that point on...

I downloaded the Win7 debugging tools/symbol sets thinking that I might fumble my way through them, but they are way over my head... So, I have attatched the mini dump files with the hope that someone might have an idea as to how I should go forth from this point.

Regards,
John

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

Given memory is the first likely cause
I would
download memtestx86 and run it for 5 passes

run a system file check
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>SFC /SCANNOW

let us know the results

This seems to be a widespread issue with various Thinkpads and various SSDs but I have yet to find a solution that works for me. I have a T400 with the latest BIOS (3.24 2012-10-17) and a SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD with the latest firmware. Since installing the SSD the system ALWAYS gives immediate Error 2100 on a cold boot and ALWAYS boots perfectly into Windows from a warm boot, e.g. a ctrl-alt-del from the error screen or a restart from Windows. I have tried everything that I could find on the internet to no avail. Any suggestions as to what causes this and any way around it?

Answer:T400 with SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD Error 2100 on Cold Boot but fine on warm boot (ctrl-alt-del)

Hello and welcome,
 
FWIW my best guess as to what causes this is timing.  Some SSD's internal controllers take longer to come to an operational state than the laptop's BIOS allows.  BIOS times out waiting on the drive and throws the error.
 
Warm boot works because the drive has had power long enough to complete its internal start-up.
 
I had a similar problem with a Crucial m4.  Fortunately it cured itself after a drive firmware update.  One interesting thing was that simply doing an update could cause the problem - until the drive had finished its internal housekeeping following the update.
 
This isn't much help   You might be able to finesse the problem by tuning off the "Quick Boot" option in the T400's BIOS.  Depending on when the drive timeout happens, this may give the SSD time to power on fully.  Booting will be a little slower.

I hope somebody else has seen this. I explained more of the problem here; http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/959379-re-installed-xp-still-takes.html#post7662292

But the fact that there is no problem with "restart" or after only a few minutes of off-time makes me think that there is something wrong besides the usual corrupted/missing boot stuff.

If I leave it off for 2 hours I'm in big trouble though and it takes a near miracle to get it to boot. If it's been on recently there is absolutely no problem. Any thoughts?

MUCH thanks- Brian

I've been having problems with my rig and the only piece I haven't replaced is my processor. I have literally replaced every piece of hardware. And am maybe coming to the conclusion that it is a compatibility problem with my Intel i7-920 and my Asus rampage iii gene mobo.

I've updated BIOS, drivers, everything I can think of that is software related.

I've attached some dumps and a few other files to help troubleshoot.

Any help would be appreciated!

I've done lots of searching and know that the "blank screen except a flashing cursor on boot" problem is pretty common, but haven't found anything like what I'm experiencing.

When I power on after a full shutdown, I get a blank screen except for a flashing cursor in the top left corner of both my monitors (dual monitor setup). The computer is completely unresponsive when this happens. If I push the reset button on my case at this stage, windows boots normally and I am able to login and use the computer. Restarting using the start menu also results in a successful windows boot.

So every time I power on my computer, I have to wait for the flashing cursors, push the reset button, then login. It's only an annoyance now, but obviously something's wrong and I'm worried that one day the reset method won't work. This has been going on for months. Any ideas?

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!

Good Morning Everyone,

Appreciate all the help on this matter, but a relatively new rig here not sure exactly what is wrong with the machine. The error only occurs on a cold boot up and after 1-2 bsod it works fine the rest of the time.

I've uploaded the error logs and i've ran RAM Test and Disk check and nothing pops up. I suspect it could be the ram but i am not entirely certain . I appreciate all the help on this matter.

Answer:BSOD Error 1033 on Cold Boot Up Fine on Warm

What did you run for RAM & Disk checking? For RAM it should be a few hours run of Memtest86+ and for the disk it should be Seatools on all tests except Advanced and Long Generic.

I'm seeing solitary bit corruptions taking place in Windows kernel code. No doubt there's a hardware issue, but which hardware can be rather difficult to ascertain. Aside from the aforementioned diagnostic tests, also run Prime95 on Torture Test on Blend settings overnight (make sure your CPU cooler is fit to handle it!). Regardless of the results, you may want to run another test afterwards but on Large FFT settings instead. This can help us discern whether it's an internal CPU issue or something else. Remember that the PSU can also be a potential element of failure.

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.

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.

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.

Need some help figuring this out. I have a Startech PEXUSB3S400 PCI Express USB 3.0 Card StarTech.com that will not be recognized on cold boots.

Upon a cold boot DM is clear of any warnings or unknown devices. The USB Controller section just doesn't show the new card controllers. Since I have my DM set to be able to show "Hidden Devices" (devices that are no longer installed) when I tick that option the new card controllers do show in the section grayed out as they would if the card was pulled which I think is normal and not a problem in this case.

Hello,

My hubby was surfing the internet when it suddenly restarted itself and went to a blue screen of death, then it went to the black screen that gave options to boot up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration, and start windows normally. No matter which you select it goes to windows icon and restarts again going to the blue screen:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or back up utilities. Check your hard drive configuration. and check for updated drivers. Run CHKDS /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

I went to tools and checked the Hard drive, it passed all three tests. So I know this much its not my hard drive.

I have no idea what is wrong with my computer......

Here is the problem:

I am using Windows XP

Last night i used Norton Antivirus and did a full system scan it came up with no viruses. This morning i turned on my computer used AIM (AOL Instant Messanger) and talked to no one. Next I started to play Battlefield 1942 offline. As I am playing the game freezes and simultaniously makes a noise (this noise was not a beep it was like internal parts or something). I waited and the game started to work again about 10 seconds later the same thing happened (it freezing and making the noise) but this time it did not start working again it stayed frozen. So I hit the restart button on the outside of my computer and as its restarting it brings me to a screen that asks me how i would like to start the computer safe mode, last good known configuration, start windows normally, etc. After I have selected my choice the windows xp loading window comes up for about enough time for the loading bar to scroll across twice. For a split second a BLUE SCREEN then comes up and goes away. No matter what options I choose (safe mode, last best known configuration, or start windows normally, etc.) it will always try to load, go to blue screen, and start all over again.

If anything needs to be clarified plese let me know and i will clarify it.

Hello all. Im having difficulty with my PC crashing several times after a cold start. It crashes at various points - usually the first is after a succesful boot into winxp but after this can be anywhere during the boot or after.

Since it started doing this (I cant think of what the trigger could have been) the memory has been replaced/upgraded from the original 256 to 2 new 512 sticks, the PSU has been upgraded to a 400W peak unit and the HDD has been replaced and all software reinstalled (one crash killed the old HDD). And still it crashes.

For a period of 2 or 3 weeks after the new memory was installed it didnt crash but slowly worked its way back up to 3 or 4 crashes every time it is cold started. Ive checked the memory with memtest86 and come up with nothing.

Its a 1.2 GHz AMD althlon, 512 RAM, 16mb nvidia riva tnt video card, wireless network card, regular network card, 1xhdd, 1x dvd, 1x floppy, 400w peak psu.

Running WindowsXP pro.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 Home from Windows 7, I've noticed that from a cold boot - e.g. PC has been turned off for several hours, the Ethernet network icon has the red X through it and I dont get any internet/network access.

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 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.

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.

Hi guys.. my pc suffers from random restarting, blue screens when i try to run 3d applications(games) like nba live 2005 and 2004... i've tried to uninstall my vid card driver and installed drivers from guru3d and omegadrivers.net.. sorry 4 my bad english.... tnx..
 

Answer:Restarts, Bluescreen, and crashes.. omg

welcome to the forums!

hrm. either the system is getting way too hot or the games are way too overwhelming for your video card. look inside your computer and see if there's a lot of dust, particularly on the cpu heatsink and video card.

oh, and have you tried toning down the hardware acceleration to see if the crashing stops? right click desktop, then go to properties, then click on settings, then advanced, then troubleshooting, and slide the bar to the left.

report back with results!

Computer: Dell Inspiron 1525, 320 GB HD with about 2 GB of free space left, 4 MB memory, running Vista Home Premium 32-Bit, SP1, updates current. Just lately, booting from off, Windows will not load, but instead gives me a \Boot\BCD error (0xc00000f)--an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. I have repaired this error with my Dell-supplied OS disc repeatedly, and each time I turn off the computer it has the same error at startup. I have read that I may have to rebuild the BCD, but I don't know how to do that. Before I check with Dell, who I suspect will just tell me to reload Windows, I need to know how approach fixing my boot configuration data. The computer has had no new software installations, just routine Windows and Trend Micro Internet Security updates, I checked the disc for errors, and a few files were missing or incorrect, and defragmentation has also been performed routinely. Dell PC checkup finds no issues. How should I proceed?

Answer:Boot\BCD error reading boot configuration data when starting from cold boot

Try this hard drive diagnostic procedure: http://usasma.vox.com/library/post/b...agnostics.html

Repeated errors on a hard drive usually indicate an impending failure. I'd backup your stuff as soon as possible.

Morning - we just bought (our second) XPS 13 which I did a clean install of Windows 10 on (to claim back as much disk space as possible). All okay, except when selecting 'Restart' from the 'Start Button/Power', the computer freezes on the Dell logo, not even getting to the spinning dots stage.

If I turn the laptop off and re-boot, all is well. Also, if I go into BIOS/UEFI and re-boot from there, it boots back to Windows okay: Windows will just not restart itself. Since the BIOS re-booting works okay, I was wondering if this is a Windows problem (Dell have been no help at all on their forums for me).

All the drivers are up-to-date, as are all the MS upates, which are set to automatic.

Any help would be much appreciated - by all those on the Dell forums!

Many thanks,

Chris

I opened up my computer today and I got a blue screen that flashed and restarted immediately.

Then I decided to install Windows again then I got this message:



A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to yur computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration and check for any updated drives. run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.

Stop 0x00000024 (0x001902FA, 0xFA32B5FC, 0xF9BC84F)

ntfs.syts - Adress F9BOC84F base at F9AC5000 Date Stamp 3d6de5c1


obviously i can't do what it told me because I can't even start up my computer!

Does this error message and continuious cycle mean that my disk is dead? that I need to get a new computer? or what?


Thanks for all answers,

Mack

Answer:Computer shows bluescreen, then restarts

Doubt your hard drive is permenently damaged.

Stop 0x24 Is indeed the error code for damage to Ntfs.sys

First try rebooting the computer and tapping on F8 continuously until you are able to view the startup options, then run XP in safe mode, if we still have the error then this is going to be more difficult, youll have to try booting with the XP cd.

Is your computer a desktop or a laptop?
Did you install any software that you think may have triggered the issue?
Are u running XP home or pro? SP1 or 2?
Are you sure the antivirus/anti-spyware you were using was compatible with XP?
Did you get any error on your workstation when XP was functioing?
Are you sure all the drivers for your hardware were installed?

If XP does boot up in safe mode,
Goto your local disk, open "properties", goto the "tools" tab and click "check now"
Ask it to repair bad sectors and fix any problems.
Good luck,

Polar

I have been getting the BlueScreen Death error then computer restarts, I have picture of the error here: http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk177/JGordonisone/BlueDeatherror.jpg

I am infected with Easy Care fake anti virus scanner.

I get redirected to false spyware results scanner page and other fake websites when browsing on Firefox..

I could only get the Malawarebytes and Super Anti Spyware logs.
Could not get Combo-Fix or MGtools logs because I get the BlueScreen Death error attempting to run them. Also RootRepeal I have 64bit does not meet requirements to use it.

Hope to get help resolving these issues :confused
 

Answer:BlueScreen Death Error and restarts

Run this

Go to TDSSKiller and Download TDSSKiller.zip to your Desktop


Extract its contents to your Desktop so that you have TDSSKiller.exe directly on your Desktop and not in any subfolder of the Desktop.
Now double click the TDSSkiller.exe file to run it ( if using Vista or Windows 7 do not double click on it but rather, right click and select Run As Administrartor.
Allow the application to run and a window will open showing that it is TDSSkiller from Kaspersky
Click Start scan
It will run rather quickly and will notify you of whether anything is found or not.
Follow the instructions to delete/quarantine if asks you what to do when if finds something.
Whether an infection is found or not, a log file should be created on your C: drive ( or whatever drive you boot from) in the root folder named something like TDSSKiller.2.1.1_27.12.2009_14.17.04_log.txt which is based on the program version # and date and time run. Please attach this log to your next reply. (See: HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post )

and then try and run combofix and MGTools

Attach logs once done.

I have a dual boot installation with Windows XP and Windows 7 on the same drive with two partitions. Both work just fine.

However most times that I boot from a cold boot, I get NO Boot options menu, just a blank screen and the hard drive light glows red, but it doesn't really seem to be doing anything.

If I press the reset switch, everything works just fine, the computer reboots, I get a boot options menu for selecting the operating system and either one boots up just fine.

If I shutdown the machine for any period of time, I'll get the blank screen until I do a hard reset.

It seems like the boot loader is not finding the ini file with the options, but only on a cold boot? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Windows 7 Dual Boot No Boot Options Menu on Cold Boot

After an ext'd period of downtime, my system freezes on start-up at the black "Windows XP" screen. The moving blue object in the bar just freezes after around 10 secs of boot time, and I must hard shutdown or reset it in order to get the PC to do anything. The catch is, no matter how I choose to reboot the system, it'll be just perfectly fine after that. I can also proceed to normally shutdown and re-boot, or restart the computer without an issue. The only time it freezes is when it has been shutdown for, say, 8 hours or so.

I've run the latest versions of ad-aware & spybot. Both yielded absolutely nothing wrong. I also ran a full-blown Avast anti-virus scan...again, nothing wrong. I then uninstalled Avast, acquired a full-blown version of Kaspersky Virus scan, ran it, and again, nothing wrong. These of course were done in the proper manner.

I really don't know if this is a hardware or software related problem. Immediately before this problem, Windows 7 used to have a restart loop on startup. Windows now works because I had to uninstall Windows 7 and reinstall. Then I started having the problem mentioned above. It is an Alienware Aurora R3, (NvidiaGeforce GTS 450 graphics card). I checked the cooling fans and there is no dust. There is no visible problem inside the CPU but all I did was remove the cover from the case. I didn't actually take components apart. A year ago a professional cleaned it up so I'm assuming it can't really be dirty.

I've had a previous problem http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/141283/computer-crashes-after-reviving-from-standby-or-hibernate/ (still not fixed)This is a brand new computer with 2gb RAM, no new software or hardware, i have run virusscans and chkdsk.But just today, in the middle of whatever, the computer just randomly shut off without warning. I pushed the power button, and it booted up, but in the middle of the process, the welcome screen, it randomly restarted without warning! I turned on the computer again and it's working just fine. What could be wrong?

Answer:Computer Randomly Shutdown. Then Restarts. Now Is Fine.

I got a system in recently with a weird issue. It would reset after a few minutes, and then shorter and shorter intervals on restart continually. I tested for all the normal stuff (power supply, temperature, unplugged the video card) and checked the error logs but only the unexpected restarts were listed, with no suspicious events around them.

If I removed a memory stick it ran fine though. I thought it was a bad stick but I ran memtest on both sticks without errors for a few passes. Immediately though if I plug in both sticks the system won't stay on for more than a minute or two.

I adjusted just about every bios setting concerning memory without change, and tried loading bios failsafe defaults.

Anyways I'm considering between just telling the owner that the system can only support one ram stick now, likely due to some motherboard fault, or trying to do a bios update though I'm a bit hesitant that if there are issues with the motherboard maybe I should just leave the bios version alone.

I'd be interested in hearing others takes on the issue.

CPU- AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 2.40GHZ
Motherboard- amd690gm-m2
RAM- CORSAIR CM2X1024- 6400C4 800 MHZ 4-4-4-12
 

Answer:System restarts with two memory sticks, fine with one

Often a faulty memory stick will work by itself, but then fail once running in duel channel.

Unfortunately this is very difficult to test with two sticks, so there's no guarantee that this is the issue. You may just have to buy some new memory.

Hi,

My friends PC restarts automatically no BOD or any error message that usually comes after the restarts.

Motherboard: Gigabyte 945 GCMX S2 on Windows 7

I check to replace RAM but same thing.

One more interesting thing is that it works fine in Safe mode. restarts time is random.

Please help me.

Answer:PC restarts automatically but in safe mode it working fine

If comp works in safe mode then you would suspect driver/3rd party software issue

Have you checked event viewer to see if there are any entries, this would be the first step

After this you could try entering msconfig and selective startup/disabling non MS startup items/non essential stuff temporarily to see if you can identify the offender

Yesterday Windows Explorer began to stop responding fairly frequently, but would restart itself without issue and continue to run fine. Today, Windows now freezes completely every 45ish minutes - usually a random program stops responding followed by everything, the mouse gets stuck, CTRL+ALT+DELETE does nothing, and it stays frozen this way. I've had one BSOD happen right after this occurs (I couldn't get the error code with auto-reboot but I just turned that off). The most recent freeze I got a "The logon process was unable to display security and logon options when CTRL+ALT+DELETE was pressed" message, and Windows just stayed frozen that way with nothing responding.

Upon hitting Restart button on my case or following the BSOD auto-reboot, my OS drive (a Crucial M4) it isn't detected in the BIOS, leading to a "Disk Boot Failure" message. Oddly, if I do a cold boot from this point and power back on, the Crucial M4 is detected and Windows starts normally. I can also boot normally after shutting down and restarting from within Windows. But no matter what, around 45 minutes later Windows then freezes again in the exact same way, repeating the cycle. I'm totally at a loss, please help!

I'm new here and have searched the web but can't seem to find similar symptoms.
I've noticed after performing various updates (either to whatever programs or Windows itself - any ones that require a re-start) that when I re-start my laptop and when the Alienware logo appears, booting basically freezes. I'm only having issues when I restart...even when there are no pending updates to anything. 
I tested today and booting actually continues on its own, but VERY slowly.  If I get stuck at this screen and I press my power button, the laptop immediately turns off.  Pressing the power button again boots the machine (to what I consider) normally.  It basically whizzes by the Alienware logo screen and into Windows without issue.  If I fully shutdown, then use the power button to boot up, everything goes normally too.  Re-starting (anytime) is when my issue occurs.

Hello! and thanks for taking your time to read this sos and for trying to reply.

I have a 3 ghz computer running on 120gb hdd etc. serial hdd. When I try starting up the computer, I get to windows xp screen, and then the computer restarts. I tried starting up with a os on a disk (one of those cd's that have their own os, and I got the same thing. Next I tried the process of eleminitation, took everything out and tried again. Nothing there. I tried restarting without the hdd, and everything works fine, Having that, I understood that my problem is with my hdd. However when I put it in my other computer as a slave, I was able to view all the files. I tried a chkdsk /r and it comes up clean. sooo in short, starting up with the hdd, computer reboots, as a slave, works just fine.

If you can think of any solution, and wouldn't mind to share with me, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for taking your time and for trying to solve the problem with me.

Hello everyone,
I am back with more computer issues.

So yesterday. My room mate decided to run an Ethernet cable from our router upstairs and change our router location. (this I dont believe has much relevance to my issue, but explaining what happened yesterday). He said he only removed my Ethernet cable and did not touch anything else.

So as to my surprise yesterday, I turn my computer on... it loads normally but then my monitors begin to flash and turn off.
I have a 26" and a 22" one VGA, one HDMI running on a 2gb MSI gtx 770.
The monitors turned off for about 15 seconds, then I saw my desktop again, then it turned off and actually restarted.

It loaded, I thought maybe for some odd reason an auto update restarted it. When it signs back in, it begins happening again.
I assume a virus, or something screwy along those lines. So I boot to safe mode. I run MSE and malware byes...nothing.

I check the cables in the back, everything is in correct and tight. I browsed around and found nothing online giving me any idea what could be causing it.


Has anyone ever experienced this issue, or know what could be causing it? I cleaned my computer out recently, I dont think theres too much dust in there. Anything you would recommend, or where to star in determining the issue?

Thanks.

Answer:Computer constantly restarts --- works fine in safe mode.

Sounds like you might have a hardware issue of some sort that started happening. When you cleaned out the system; did you remember to do it with the system off? If not; the blowing around of dust inside the case could have shorted something. Only reason i say this is because I mistakenly did that once and i heard a loud pop sound and suddenly my system shut off. Fortunately for me it didnt do any permanent damage. But back to this issue; I would check your power supply; as often when a computer suddenly reboots without reason it could very well be due to a partially faulty power supply that is starting to go bad; and or a possible motherboard issue. For the power supply i would try and get hold of a volt meter and test to make sure your power supply is still putting out proper voltage. However; if it is a motherboard issue; there is not much that can be done short of replacement as the mb is the heart of the system next to the cpu.

Just built a new PC and I've noticed that sometimes I will turn on the PC from cold boot and the boot time will be so fast that I won't even see the "login screen" and the desktop will just pop up.

Other times it seems to take a long time on the login screen alone.

I don't have pending updates or anything, but it seems odd that the boot times vary without installing new software/peripherals.

Is this normal behavior?

Booting on an ssd of course.

It's possible that it's performing a full boot sometimes and a "hiberboot" on others.

Hello,

My Lenovo laptop is pretty fast at cold boot. It takes about 12 seconds from initial bios screen to desktop.

On the other hand, warm boot is really slow. The same period takes about 51 seconds, involving a long black screen.

Actually, it was similiar at Windows 8.1 as well. What can be the cause of that?

Thanks

Answer:Slow warm boot & Fast cold boot

Start Microsoft event viewer.
Expand Application and Services Logs.
Expand Microsoft/Windows/Diagnostic–Performance
Click on Operational. In the Windows that opens up check out event IDs 100 and 200. When you expand these event IDs you will see a detailed breakout of boot event durations. They should help you identify the particular issues. In a cold restart you should only have an event ID of 100 while in the reboot you will have 200 followed by 100.

I'll outline my specs, then each issue--hopefully somebody can help me with at least one of them. Specs:Lenovo Ideapad Y510pHave upgraded to Windows 10.0.010240 from native Windows 8Processor: Intel i5-4200M @ 2.50GHzCurrent BIOS Version: Lenovo 74CN44WW(v.3.05)6.00 GB of physical memoryDedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 755MCurrently running driver version 10.18.13.6143I suspect my issues could be related. My first issue is that, over the past month or so, when I try to play games on my system, I'll only get about 3 minutes in before everything crashes. The process is like this: the screen will turn black, the sounds from the game will continue, the fan will kick into high gear and, after a few minutes, the laptop will (usually) restart on its own. I suspected this might be an overheating issue, so I took the laptop apart and cleaned out the excess dust. No improvement. I've tried playing on a flat, hard surface--the games will run anywhere from 5-40 minutes, but will ultimately crash in the same manner. I've recently been monitoring my system heat, and the program I use never reads more than 80 degrees celsius before crash. My next two issues are very similar. I had trouble updating Windows when I was running 8.1--switching to 10 briefly fixed this issue, but recently my machine is just completely unable to update.

I'm having a problem with booting my laptop - but only when cold-booting.

Never heard about this problem before. I can reboot just fine, and if i acces the BIOS and just go straight on exiting, not changing anything - it too boots windows normally without any hitches.

How is booting different from cold-boot to rebooting or through BIOS? I've been toying around with EFI boots, but everything [should be] reverted and i used my windows disc to repair the boot sequence. After the BIOS splash it just lingers and the "starting windows" gui doesnt appear.

Edit and edit2: I've now tried for a couple of times to let it sit, and it does boot up after about 4 minutes consistently. It goes like this:
I press power on. After,
3 seconds the BIOS splash comes on.
7 seconds the screen goes black.
4 min 0 seconds the screen turns off, then immediately turns on again with a black screen.
4 min 3 seconds the BIOS splash reappears.
4 min 7 seconds the "windows starting" gui comes on.
4 min 25 secs windows is booted up and responsive.

So the Black screen is consistently just about 3 minutes and 53 seconds. All BIOS settings are properly set to boot from HDD. No external HDDs or FDDs connected. Even removed the excess drive letter assignments in windows to be safe.
Satas in AHCI for the OS-SSD (and a spindle for storage). Booting from spindle drive is disabled in BIOS.

Answer:Cold boot no HD, warm boot finds HD

There's a computer adage. Problems when the system is cold are related to connections. These go away when the system warms up and things expand. So for starters double check all connections concerning the hard drive and where the IDE cable attaches to the motherboard.

I am running Windows XP SP3. This is what happens after the computer has been shut down for the night.

I push the power button to get it started. Sometimes it goes through the boot process and finishes because I hear the Windows tune play. But then the monitor stays black even though the power button on the monitor has lit up.

Sometimes when I push the power button to turn on the computer it never gets to the point of playing the Windows tune and the monitor stays black.

I have to push and hold in the power button to shut down the computer and try booting it up again. Usually after the 3rd try it boots successfully. Sometimes holding down the power button does not shut off the power it just seems like it is in hibernatation and the computer makes the sound like it is awakening and then the monitor wakes up.

I have the power set to never for everything and to not hibernate.

I have changed the boot order so it will boot from the hard disk first.
I have reinstalled or however you say it the bios thinking maybe the file was corrupt.
I have updated the graphics drivers
I ran a test last night for the hard disk from Seagate and all of the tests were fine. There is no firmware update for the hard drive.

I have ran malware scans and everything is clean.

Any ideas? I know the computer is old and probably on it's last legs.

I have a 8-month old pc "Touch" that just had repair, new hardrive I assume since I had to reload everything when I got it back. I have to send it to another city by courier and that is why I am not simply taking it back to them and asking them so I hope someone here has the magic answer for me.

At a cold boot it now will not load Windows XP UNTIL I unplug the keyboard. The fan just makes a lugging noise (up and down) and the 3 lights blink above the number pad on the keyboard. The second I unplug the keyboard from the round port in the back of my computer Windows XP loads. What should I do???
1. Try a new keyboard?
2. Get an adapter so I can go from round port connection n my keyboard cord to usb plug so I can plug into a usb port in the back of my computer.

Any other thoughts.

PS: I'm a newbie when it comes to this hardware/running stuff despite the fact I've been a secretary and used a computer since l975. Detailed (simple as they may seem) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

Answer:Cold Boot

try a new keyboard, as weird and funny as it may sound i have actually had a mouse stop a computer from going through the POST screen and booting into windows. i found out it was the mouse causing it after i accidentally left it out during boot and the pc loaded, put a new mouse in it and it ran fine, strange but it worked. so try that first and tell us what happens.

This happens when I power up the pc and it boots.

The desktop appears, and when I click normally on an icon (a desktop shortcut) to open it, it doesn't open. Instead I get the menu that I would get if I had right-clicked on the icon. If I open it from there, there are problems with tabs.

To fix this, I Restart the pc. Then everything works the way it should.

It always happens when I power up the pc. And I always have to restart it to fix it.

Any ideas on this one? Thanks!

Answer:Win 10 after a cold boot

Most of the times the Explorer crashes due a bad or corrupt Context Menu the best way to troubleshoot is to download the ShellExView is an excellent tool to view and manage all installed shell extensions. The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView. Run a SFC Scannow to make sure all the System files are intact.

For some time my PC was on 24/7.  I switched it off at Christmas and it took several tries to get it back on.  I assumed it was just a glitch and didn't worry about it.  I left it running 24/7 for a few months, then switched it off again.  The same problem occurred - it took several tries to get it to boot.  The exact sequence goes like this:1. Switch off at night.2. Switch on next day.  Screen is blank, no beeps, no access to BIOS.  Hard drive spins up.  CD drive is not accessed, nor is floppy drive.3. Wait a while to let PC warm up.  May get a few noises between click and beep, but nothing that matches any of the beeps in the beep table.4. Switch off and try again.  The PC may start up.  Sometimes the CD drive is accessed around now but the boot procedure doesn't get any further.5. If the PC doesn't boot, repeat steps 3 and 4 until it does.This problem is one I really need solved.  Help!!!

Question: Cold boot - Help!

I am trying to see if there is a way of cold-booting a PC without accessing the motherboard power-on pin pair.

This pair of pins is often covered (i.e. Dell use a proprietary 40-pin block across all those pins, so you can only access the pwr-on pair if you pull the 40-pin block off, but that disconnects a lot of other stuff.

Does anyone know a way of turning on a PC other than bridging the pwr-on pair on the motherboard?

Thanks

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:
CPU: AMD ATHLON... Read more

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

BSOD on startup after 8 hours or so of being off overnight. Occurs everyday.
Ran memtest+86 & passed 7 loops..

I remove a ram stick & replace it for the BSODs to go away and windows to startup, continues to run fine all day.

Ran through windbg but I don't really know what I'm looking at.
I have also attached my minidump file and my system.nfo for reference if needed.

In hopes that I was reading the results correctly I updated my nvidia drivers from nvidia's website and thought it would help, but no luck.

Thanks in advance, any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

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

Question: Slow Cold Boot

Hello,
so i have installed windows 7 on my computer about a year ago. ive never had any blue screens due to it crashing, never had any problems to the point where i would need to re install the OS, however, ive noticed that on cold boots the system runs painfully slow, it will boot up fairly fast on a normal restart tho, like 20-35 seconds. on a cold boot it can take about 1-2 minutes to load in windows, and then once that happens its not so much it going slow as that there is a point during which i cannot click anything or else it will take forever to accomplish. what i mean by this is, it will load to my desktop and for a period of about 3 more minutes i will try to right click on the desktop and it will do the circle thing for like 20 seconds before giving me the drop down menu. if i right click again right after, it shows up instantly.
same with trying to open up a file within those first couple of minutes. it will take like 45 seconds to open a picture. its weird..
I have tweaked my windows 7 to startup only necessary drivers and turned off search index along with Aero.
My HDD isn't fragmented and ive got about 120gbs out of 450 available. so its not that bad.

Now some of you may say, well its just loading the processes. but i only have catalyst control center loading up as a startup item lol. and even after it loads. it goes through a wierd 3-4 minute phase in which everything is slow as hell. then works perfectly fine.
any help?

Answer:Slow Cold Boot

One difference between a warm boot and a cold boot is that in a cold boot the component devices are initialized. So it could be a failing component. Any clues in the Device Manager or the Event Viewer?

Another difference is RAM addressing. Cold boot maps the RAM, warm boot does not.
You could run Memtest86+ to test your RAM.

Another difference is simply warming up. Power supplies and spinning hard drives, if they are failing, can have issues when starting up from a dead stop, but work fine when warmed up. I think video cards can have a issue too.

I'm just throwing some things out here - brainstorming.

How does it do going into Safe Mode?

This problem started about a week ago and has been getting worse. I won?t boot after being left off over night. It will boot after installing the backup (takes 5 min. from time to inserting disk to reboot). It?s booted once after waiting for it to warm up for a few minutes. Boots fine if turned off for a few hours but once it reaches room temp wont. I don?t think it?s a software problem as I?ve reinstalled windows after reformatting. I?ve switched the memory into the other slots and no diff there. I?ve checked all my plugs and components to be sure they are seated properly. I built this computer in Nov 06 with no problems. I added the 2nd raptor a month ago.

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

I recently upgraded a Toshiba A300 laptop (2009 model) from Win7 to Win10. I use a 125GB Kingston SSD as primary and a 280GB Hitachi as a secondary internal hard disk, in place of DVD drive, inside a craddle. This is a single OS installation, no dual boot. When I cold boot (from power on) and after the Bios logo, the "MBR Error 1" appears on screen and stops booting. To bypass I do a warm restart (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and the second (warm) boot loads Win 10. Also booting is ok from a Restart. Again error message appears only after a cold boot.
As a teaser I have to mention that, whenever I remove the craddle with the secondary Hitachi hard disk, the error does not appear during cold boot !!!. That is the error message appeares only if the second hard disk is installed. Does anybody have any suggestion on what might cause it and a possible solution??
This is an annoying situation only and does not affect any other operation, except booting.

So basically, whenever I cold boot, in the black screen I get:
IDE Channel 0 Master : None
IDE Channel 0 Slave : None
IDE Channel 1 Master : None
IDE Channel 1 Slave : None
SATA3 : None
SATA4 : None
SATA1 : None
SATA2 : None

Thus (with no devices detected) I'm stuck in a daily manner on either the black screen (as seen in the SS below) or (if I entered BIOS settings even though I realize it doesn't do anything) a completely blank screen with a single underscore blinking at the top left corner.
The Samsung 120GB HDD is connected through an IDE cable (80 pin), to where it refers to as "0 Master".

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/586438-solved-pc-wont-cold-boot.html
This thread here is an old one similar to my case. I tried every suggestion found there and in a few other threads to no avail.
Things I've tried so far and didn't solve a thing include:
Many combinations of timing with the boot button, nothing.
Also combinations of killing the power via the power supply button and opening it back, instant or delayed booting after that, etc., nada.
Repeated warm or cold boots (once over an hour) do not work.
Changing BIOS settings, resetting it with "load optimized defaults" or "load fail-save defaults", fix nothing.
I changed the IDE cable, though not with a brand new one, but the one that was working just fine with my DVD-RW. I took it from the DVD-RW and connected it to the HDD. No difference whatsoever.
