My Lenovo PC suddenly shut down today and when I restarted it I got a BSOD with a 'bad pool header' message. I did eventually restart but soon shut down again with a 'k mode exception not handled' message. Now when I restart I get a blue page 'RECOVERY Your computer could not start properly. A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed. Error: 0xc0000225.'
I have a windows 10 system repair disk but when I try and boot from it I get 'non system disk or disk error'.
I recently (2 weeks ago) replaced the hard drive because the old one was showing SMART errors. I cloned the old disk to an identical disk and it seemed to be going fine until today. Not sure quite what to do next.
Last night I was watching a dvd on my desktop when all of a sudden a blue screen came up with a frowning face and said that "Your computer ran into a problem and needs to restart, its collecting info and will restart." It happened quickly so I didn't see what the error was but now my PC is stuck in a loop where it restarts and loads into an empty blue screen. It stays on that blue screen for a minute or so and then restarts again. I tried going into my BIOS or starting in safe mode but my PC won't go into them.
I recently replaced the mobo and the CPU on this system. I am getting BSOD and/or the computer randomly freeze or restart on its own. I did run the computer in safe mode for a whole day and did not have any of the aforementioned issues.
Two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.
I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.
I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen.
So I have a Lenovo touchscreen but i don't have the touchscreen part, I was using it but then it crashed, and now it wont accept USB drives, and my keyboard and mouse install into the computer via USB what do i do.
I had updated to Windows10 a couple weeks ago. Everything was running smoothly until my most recent NVidia gfx driver update. It seemed to stall at 99% completion and then I lost the sound to my computer.
After numerous attempts to fix my sound I decided to just restore my computer and wipe it clean. Big mistake.
Again upon 99% completion of the restore process my computer crashed and then entered an infinite loop and booting and loading to a screen that would say "innaccessable boot driver".
This seems to be a common problem with windows10 and people who restored or wiped their computer, they all got the same error message I did. Except the fixes that have worked for them aren't working for me.
I have even purchased a fresh copy of windows 8 and a new SSD in attempt to remedy this but to no avail. Even after removing my other SSD's and keeping only the new one in, it now loads to a screen that says "reboot and select proper boot device, or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key".
I have tried messing around in the bios but nothing I do seems to work.

On 28/12/15 switched computer on and it went straight into Windows 10 updating, then came up with box saying "update fail", clicked on that and it then kept bring up different disc failures. Now stuck in blue screen which takes me into auto repair which then comes up with PC did not start correctly and gives different options : restart option throws me back to blue screen, troubleshoot advanced option - system restore won't give me any dates so have to cancel out, system image recovery - can't find any images, start up repair - takes me back round auto repair back to blue screen, command prompt - haven't the foggiest what to do here, go back to previous build - ran into a problem and won't be able to take you back.
My computer has been fine with no issues what so ever but today it crashed and then when it booted back up it would do the windows 10 loading screen and everything else but when it got to the login screen it just goes black,you can still use the Mouse and win+P still shows the side bar on the screen but the rest is black.
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. X551MA Serial #: E5N0CX006715187
Windows 10 Core (10.0.10240.16590) my computer crashed brings up Recovery file: BCD Error code: Oxc0000034 then goes to Aptio setup utility screen. i signed in as administrator and added passwords now i just need to know what i need to do from here.
This morning my PC hard crashed,. I didn't think anything of it, restarted and got back to work. About an hour later it hard crashed again, eventually BSODing within minutes of logging in. These are just some of the errors:
IRQL null less or equal System Service Exception Bad Pool Header Kmove exception not handled
And a few others. I could never stay on long enough to google these errors so I ran CHKDSK from the advanced boot screen which came back fine. I decided "screw it" and just did a System Restore since my last point was a few days ago. Then it BSOD during the system restore, and it made it so that it would crash after the Windows logo. I decided to use the Reset to reinstall Windows 10 but keep my files, and, you guessed it! BSOD during that. Now it doesn't even ask for my password in the advanced boot screen like it used to. If I try to do the Reset again it gives me an error and says it can't be done.
If I power on, there's a 90% chance it either hard crashes or BSOD at the Windows logo. On the off-chance that it makes it beyond that, it runs a repair tool, but it always fails. I made a Windows 10 USB installer but it just prompts for a serial key which I don't have because I used the automatic upgrade from Windows 8.1 a few weeks ago.
I spent hours searching for answers, and even resorted to making a USB Linux installer just to access my HDD and transfer some important files to an external HDD, but I couldn't grab them all. For some reason some of my folders were inaccessible.
Windows kept asking me for the password upon startup and would not recognize the password I input each time. So I would have to reset it. I went to the forum and read how to shut the password feature off by holding the windows key + r , typing the letters provided and unchecking the box. The system then asked me to restart. My laptop will not restart - blue/black screen appears and nothing else.
This weekend I had several BSODs while playing games. 2 times the system simply crashed black screen and restarted, 1 time I received a BSOD MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error, and 2 times I received a BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN error and a restart.
The MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and one black screen crash occurred while playing Forged Alliance Supreme Commander, then the IRQL errors and a black screen crash occurred while playing Steam version of Age of Empires II.
My laptop suddenly crashed and now it says "Boot media missing" when I restarted. After that, it always takes me to "Preparing Automatic Repair" and then the 'Troubleshoot' menu.
In the 'Troubleshoot' menu, it has two options: 'Reset this PC' and 'Advanced options'.
When I choose "Reset this PC", it asks me whether to keep my files or remove everything. I've tried both and it displays an error. When I choose to keep my files, it says that drive is locked and tells me to unlock the drive and try again. When I choose to remove everything, it says that there is a problem resetting the PC.
And then I've moved to "Advanced options". The options are: System Restore, System Image Recovery, Startup Repair, Command Prompt, UEFI Firmware Settings, and Go back to previous build. I've tried all of these and it all returned an error. When I chose UEFI Settings, it restarted to BIOS setting. And my BIOS can't detect my hard drive. DISKPART from Command Prompt can't detect it either.
Upgrade from win 8.1..The install was very smooth when I upgraded, i am having minimal problem with my pc. the only problem is that at the moment, random of times my pc will automatically reset with out warning, no BSOD, no errors. Here is how it will go,
Playing game Sudden power off (sometimes up to x3) Restart (sometimes up to x3) then it will auto automatically boot to windows and ill have a full day before it does it again.
Since installing Win 10 my computer will restart on its own if the electrical power "blips" or I unplug the unit and plug it back in. It did not happen when I had Win 7.
I also have to manually restart the system twice to get past the black screen with the blue window. If I go to safe mode using msconfig to change boot method I usually do not have the problem. But everything seems to slow down.
I just built a new pc. Specs are Asus Z87-Pro Motherboard, Intel i7 4790k, 16gb RAM, 3T seagate HD. Everything has been performing well on my computer except for when it needs to restart. When I go into windows and click shutdown it has no problem but when I click restart it will exit windows and turn off the display but the computer will remain running and will not boot back up.
I have to manually press the power button to turn it off and then press it again to boot it back up. This also happens when it needs to restart from other programs. From what I have found is it may have to be something with bios versions or settings but I honestly have no clue. I have the most recent bios update for my mobo and I haven't found any settings that would fix this in my bios either.
I just currently started having this issue. My computer runs completely fine. However I applied recent windows 10 upgrades and I for some reason had to restart I cant remember why. However after the initial restart the computer simply stayed on and didn't initiate boot. I then turned off the computer and turned it back on. It boots fine, no problems. However if I set the computer to restart from the start menu it will but it wont boot back. It will just stay on and make a louder fan noise but wont reboot?
On start up I get the computer needs to restart and then goes into the loop of restarting from a blue screen, I can get F2 which is the Bios screen but thats all, I can see reboot on this but do not have anything to reboot with as I upgraded from win 7.
This started last week, after the power flickered a few times during a storm while I was on my computer. I began to notice that when I would take longer than a 10-15 minute break and leave my computer idle I would come back to the sign in screen.
I tested all my hardware and everything seems perfectly fine. I manually ran automatic maintenance and my PC restarted shortly after. I assume that when automatic maintenance would run while my computer was idle it would cause my pc to restart.
The question is, how can I disable automatic maintenance? I looked in task scheduler but there is nothing under Task Scheduler > Microsoft > Windows > Task Scheduler. How can i disable automatic maintenance on Windows 10?
