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.
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.
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.
I recently started getting a black screen when trying to turn on my laptop, a Sony Vaio running Windows 10. I am unable to download the DM log collector tool since I cannot use my computer at all. It stays on the black screen even if I let it sit for hours. It's possible that I backed up a Windows 10 file when originally upgrading from WIN7 but I'm not sure and if so, it would be on an external hard drive.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
So yesterday as I am updating my video drivers windows crashed. It wouldn't do a system restore for whatever reason thus i did a reset. It said it would keep all my files and it did for the most part but firefox got deleted. and thus all my bookmarks and history gone. For whatever reason sync wont do anything like restore addons or bookmarks and im at a loss.
My computer has always crashed frequently since I built it a few months ago. I finally did a clean Windows 10 install to see if that would sort it out but it didn't. It appears random. It crashes during resource intensive games, not resource intensive games, browsing, watching a video, or even just idling once every 2 to 6 hours of use. BSOD point their fingers at the RAM (which has tested fine), my graphics driver (the latest), and other things I'm not sure about.
After upgrading to W10 from W8.1 (which went trouble free) when my laptop is powered completely off and I turn on the laptop, after the Acer splash screen the video stops working. Windows continues to load just no video.
IF I go into the bios during startup and just exit out of it, W10 starts normally, with video. It will also reboot with no problem, no video loss, only when the laptop is powered completely off.
I tried going to the Acer web site and downloading their W10 drivers, made no difference. I installed the latest bios.
I've been running Windows 10 since it was released and nothing really has come up as a problem until last night, I was playing a game on the pc and I got some red dots everywhere, I figured nvidia crashed and thought nothing of it until my entire pc reset now I see a series of white dots on bios loadup and windows loads and just before it gets to the login, my computer resets. When it tries to get into repair mode I don't have any keyboard or mouse input, this is a build I made so I don't have any fancy oem recovery options ( and I was too dumb to make a backup disk).
My build has an nvidia gtx590 , and phenom II black edition, Asus mobo. I haven't d.l or installed any new hardware or software recently.
I've had Windows 10 for a couple weeks now, my laptop is running pretty slow (was bad before the update, I figured because it was mostly full but didn't seem to get much better after freeing up some space) and as of a few days ago File Explorer stopped loading most of my folders. Whenever I tried and go into one, e.g. Click on "Documents" it just says 'working on it' and endlessly loads. Thought an update might work but Windows Update won't work either, I just get the endless loading dots.
Btw I'm using a HP Pavilion DM4 Notebook (Beats Edition)
I am running Windows 10 1511 10836, having upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 back in August 2015. This morning when I turned on my Lenovo B575 laptop, after the first Windows screen with animated circling dots at the bottom, when it refreshed the screen and went to the 2nd Windows screen, I noticed that the animation with the circling dots was slow. After several minutes, the computer was still on this screen. After 15 minutes and no change, I restarted the computer.
Upon 2nd startup I got the same results. On 3rd startup I got the Please Wait screen and then eventually got to the Startup and Repair screen. After diagnosing found nothing, I then went to the System Restore page and found that a Windows Update had installed yesterday afternoon. I restored to the Restore Point created yesterday, and restarted.
(Last Thursday I had to force the upgrade to the 1511 10836 update by downloading the 3.5Gb file because Windows Update kept failing. I have had no problems since then.)
No change. I can get to Safe Mode after 2 failed attempts, but without knowing what to check or look for, this does me little good. Of course can I reset/reinstall Windows 10 but would rather not if I don't have to.
My USB Ports stop working the second windows start to load. My logitech g710 & G502 light up and work fine in the motherboard BIOS but the second windows starts to load the stop working. I have been using a PS/2 Keyboard to navigate through the OS. I have restore windows. I have install a fresh build of windows. I have updated the motherboard BIOS. I have updated to the latest drives in my device manager and still no luck.

I am usually pretty self sufficient when it comes to building/troubleshooting computers, but i am at a complete loss on this one.
So, I rebuilt a PC for a friend with a bunch of new parts and it started crashing about a week after he took it home (specs below). At first it was crashing ALL the time...playing games, watching twitch, anything. It would just randomly do a hard reset and restart normally without any sort of error codes, pop-ups, or even a bsod. I really mean random too, i desperately tried finding some consistency to the problem, but no luck on that.
Long story short, i have tested and swapped just about every part in this computer (except for the dvd drive). I have ran Memtest overnight on several occasions with no errors. I have checked and rechecked all bios settings and nothing is overclocked, memory timings are all dialed in correctly. Temperatures have not surpassed 55C on the CPU, and 70C is the max on the GPU. I have done a completely fresh reinstall of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, and installed several different versions of drivers (and yes i cleaned out the old files after each uninstall). I unchecked that little box that auto restarts on system failure.
All of this, among other things i can't quite remember at the moment, have only slowed down the crashing to a minimum. After installing a new ssd and installing slightly older drivers, it seems to have cut down the crashing quite a bit. Right now it has reset twice in the past 24 hours, and it has only happened after exiting games, specifically BF4 and Garden Warfare.
I have checked the Event Viewer several times and three things pop out at me.
It seems like it is trying to tell me there is a fatal error with the CPU...but i have pretty much ruled out every possible hardware issue there could be at this point, including lack of power and bad video cables.
iI want to say it is a driver issue of some sort...but i am running a barebones OS right now with only the essentials running, and i have tried several different driver versions to no avail.
Here's the specs, Debugging files are attached.
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit -AMD FX-8120 -Gigabyte 78LMT mATX mobo -2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaw X 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 -Corsair CX 600w Bronze -MSI GeForce 960 2GB (355.58 driver installed, graphic and audio drivers ONLY) -OCZ Trion 100 120GB SSD -WD Blue 1TB 7200rpm HDD -Enermax Ostrog case w/ several 140mm fans
Lately I have been getting hard lock ups on my desktop. I had no real software or hardware changes but I did notice the crashing was only happening during GTA 5. The locks up would never have an actual BSOD or error message just a hard freeze requiring me to restart or the system would restart itself.
Now it started happening even without running GTA 5. My cpu temps were a bit high (98 was the max) with GTA 5 so I thought that was the issue, but when idling + my hyper 212 evo, I get 30 deg temps and still crashed.
Interestingly I also crashed when using the dmp application to make the mini dump I uploaded to analyze.
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.
My pc is still running when it somehow crashes my monitor switches off to a black screen showing no signal pc requires hard shut down to turn off sometimes even flipping switch on power supply for it to shut down. I have a verifier file to this post but im unsure if it shows the issue as the problem is not showing up as an event. the problem seems to be at random instead of being provoked I restored back to a windows update for 12/25/15 instead of before verifier to see if problem persists after a critical update was installed.
A friend of mine gifted me with a plethora of new hardware, to the point where I had to buy a new mobo. Did a fresh install of Win10 in the hopes to not run into driver issues and it was solid for about a week. Recently, however crashes have been happening with some regularity, every other day or so, especially when streaming. This is the first time it's actually given a blue screen. Showed the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error message.
I recently built the PC I am currently experiencing this issue on. I have built several gaming PC's in the past, but never have I experienced any consistent issues such as this.
The PC Speccs are as follows:
CPU- AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7GHz Cooled with a: CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm MOBO- ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ GPU- 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 970s in SLi (4GB GDDR5) Power Supply- COOLMAX CUG-950B 950W ATX12V v2.3 EPS12V v2.91 SLi Certified RAM- 16GB HyperX DDR3 SDRAM HD(s)-1x Western Digital 1TB 32MB Cache, 1x Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache OS- Windows 10
I built the PC in mid February of this year, 2015. This particular issue started happening consistently (daily basis) in June. While gaming, my PC will all of a sudden, at random, lock up completely. I try Alt+f4, Ctrl+Alt+Del, and Alt+Tab, but nothing responds. The PC just stays like this until I'm forced to do a hard-reset at the tower.
I've tried just about everything I can think of to resolve this problem. I thought since it only happens when I game that perhaps it's a cooling issue and my system is overheating. However, I've ran a slew of programs to monitor heat and none show anything abnormal.
Many articles suggested malware or spyware might be causing the lock-ups. So I've chosen to clean my system daily but the issue still persists.
At one point I was able to eliminate the problem completely for nearly 3 weeks by changing my power settings from 'Power-Saver' to 'High-Performance'. Unfortunately, the issue came back. Asus Suite II regularly reports power fluctuations which leads me to believe it might possibly be a failing Power-Supply but I'm just not sure.
Windows Event Viewer lists a myriad of different application and system errors each time it happens. Recently however, it is always showing errors from Microsoft.Windows.Store, DistributedCOM, and Service Control Manager, all coinciding with the exact time the system locks up and becomes unresponsive.
It's worth noting that this system started out running Windows 7 Home Premium and just recently upgraded to Windows 10. The problem existed regardless of OS.
