BSOD :: System Hangs When Scanning For New / Changed Hardware?
Oct 9, 2015
My PC completely freezes when detecting hardware changes (device manager) after about 3-4 seconds.
I've left it for 1h+ to see if anything happens over time, nothing.
Tried it in safe mode, same problem.
Removed geforce drivers, same problem
When frozen, all lights (and my screens) stay on, pressing capslock on KB doesn't turn the capslock light on/off.
The manually initiated crash still works though, that's how I got the memory dumps in the attachment (usually there is no dump at all and the only way to "fix" it is to press the reboot button several times)
My system had 2 blue screen the past few weeks, so I decided to try to check for eventual hardware and software problems, I started by running a stress test with ROG realbench since my CPU is overclocked, it gave me an error already(program stopped working), so after doing more tweaking(increasing voltage), then I finally put back the default speed because it wouldn't even start, although at the beginning it crashed right away when I clicked start, and after putting more voltage, it starts and works for a bit and then the PC just hangs, and it still does it at stock speed.. which is quite weird ! it also did it with cinebench, but the strange things is I played numerous hours of starcraft 2 without problem, also I wasn't doing anything when the blue screens happened.
I ran a windows memory test, no errors detected (haven't ran memtest though..) I also did a sfc /scannow and it didn't detected anything wrong.. I'm starting to think it's more related to windows than hardware.
I have been recently noticing that my computer sometimes hangs up with a blank screen when the windows 10 login screen is supposed to load. I am forced to press the reset button in order to eventually log on.
I have then noticed through event viewer a bugcheck warning. I have been trying to find what the cause or issue might be but I have not had any luck. I am attaching a report as per forum rules
So I got a new laptop - MSI Dominator Pro GT72. I added two 8GB sticks of RAM on top of the current 16GB currently in it. It also had two Kingston m.2 SSDs in RAID 0. It was running with out any problems what so ever. I decided after that I actually wanted the ssds as two independent drives. So I removed the RAID setup and did a clean install of Windows 10 back on. That seemed to install all ok.
Then In the process of installing the drivers from the provided MSI disc it hung and then restarted. Then ever time after on login it froze a few seconds in. I thought I'd try a clean install again on the other SSD this time just to see if it reoccurred. Sure did. After installing some of the drivers and using the machine it crashed again and froze on login. I even tried all the updated drivers from the msi website instead of the ones on the disc.
I've run a memtest and absolutely no errors. I've updated the bios and firmware also. I then began running verifier to see if I could find a culprit. I got a BSOD before login repeatedly. I then got down to only selecting a bare few drivers in the test and was able to login with no BSOD. When I ran verifier with combinations of drivers they worked sometimes and only really seemed to crash when i stacked more and more drivers for it to test. I'm not sure if its suppose to work that way or not.
I thought it might have something to do with me separating the m.2 ssds from the RAID. I should mention that there is a 1TB hdd also in the machine.
My newly built computer is borderline unusable due to constant hangs - the computer will frequently pause then continue after about 45 seconds, which makes doing any work basically impossible. During the course of writing these few sentences running the log collector, and uploading the logs, it hung 5+ times. The only programs that typically are running are Word and Chrome. BSODs are less frequent, but still an issue.
This is tied to the network card, but maybe there is something else (or multiple things) going on.
I upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 recently. About 90% of boots, my laptop will hang a and produce a BSOD. Initially, the BSODs were typically "system thread exception not handled" and "pfn list corrupt".
However, after the latest Win 10 update last week, initially everything went well, there were no boot hangs for awhile until a few days ago when it keeps on BSODing on boot with the error "Inaccessible boot device". The subsequent restart would end up with a BSOD of "system thread exception not handled". It works only after multiple restarts, which is worrying.
I have windows 8.1 Pro Fin x64. I want to upgrade it to Windows 10 and keep my programs and settings unchanged and in upgrade change also system language to En-us in the upgrade process.
I have created using MS Media Creation Tool Windows 10 Pro x64 DVD.
If I change in Win 8.1 region, system locale, keyboard to English - Us and after that upgrade my win 8.1 to Windows 10 using the created DVD. Will the upgrade be successful and my new windows 10 automatic activated? After upgrade I change region, locale and keyboard to Finnish.
I know that I can change display language in Windows 10 to English, but I'm eager to change also system language to English when I upgrade.
Is this workaround to do the system language change?
Something weird just happened on my system. I was in a game and it was a bit laggy. There was a beep and the screen froze. I exited the game with alt-f4 and my screens turned black except the mouse pointer. I could use my mouse pointer but everything else was moving sluggish so I force rebooted my system. When I did it did a few updates on startup, but there was no history of what the updates were. When I logged in everything looked fine, but my color theme went from burnt orange to hot pink.Should I be worried about someone remoting into my system or was this something like the maintenance starting?
Windows 10 In Windows Explorer, I right-clicked on C: and went to Properties and then selected the Security tab and edited the permissions to Allow Full control and it ran for a long, long time. When I re-booted the computer it works fine until after the Sign In screen then the screen goes black. I have a cursor and if I hit Ctrl-Atl-Delete I can select Task Manager but then the screen goes black again. I can boot into Safe Mode with Networking and I can get a Command Prompt in Safe Mode. I have looked at ICACLS but I'm not sure how to use it to re-set the permissions back to normal Windows 10 settings.
On initial start up had notice to check and repair c drive. It is now stuck at 67% completion and now I am unable to start windows. How can I stop the scanning? I managed to get into the diagnostic pages by pressing the space bar on the start up but non of the action allow me to sttop the scanning process.
the windows fax and scan utility can't start up because it can't access the documents folder, where it saves the scans.
Then I tried the windows 10 scan app. It saves by default to the pictures folder. It, too, could not save to the default location. but I discovered that I can set it to save to desktop, and that works. But it forgets my choice as soon as I close the app.
I am the owner of these folders. Why can't my apps access them? I checked documents properties, and I have full permissions.
My Bluetooth service has stopped. The device, a speaker, is detected but pairing does not complete after endless scanning. Bluetooth is reported as requiring further installation. How do I do that? Driver update is greyed out.
I recently did the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my desk-top computer. Now, when I turn on my desk-top the system starts to load, but then it will just stop!
Sometimes the start-up screen will make it as far as displaying a several of the circling dots, but frozen, below the blue Windows logo and sometimes it's only one frozen circling dot. So, I hold the power button down to turn off the computer. Then, I'll turn the computer back on and the operating system will load! This gets to be rather annoying.
My Windows 10 (64bit) has always had issues with "page fault in nonpaged area" errors, usually when rebooting from sleep. Yesterday, my system crashed again again. Instead of booting up as normal, it crashed again with the same error, rebooted, and crashed again. My computer can no long boot to Windows.
I've searched online and have seen that it could be my RAM, so I tried running one stick at a time and it didn't work. I also tried to use a bootable flash drive (made with Media Creation Tool) to reformat my hard drive / reinstall Windows 10, but I get the same error/crash when I boot from the flash drive.
Here's my system specs:
CPU: Intel I-4790k RAM: G.Skill RIPJAW 2x8GB MOTHERBOARD: Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150 STORAGE: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
I used avg tuneup to check the disk for errors on next boot and my computer turned off while it was checking for errors. After this happened I can't get windows 10 to boot into login. I get a message saying it can't boot windows and I get a bad system config info error.
I am using a N5050 Inspiron Dell Laptop.I tried booting into command prompt and running the command chkdsk /f /r /x and when it finishes it says it didn't fix anything or fine any errors. Ubuntu says it has bad sectors when I tried to run a fix on the partition in gparted. I tried burning easyre windows 10 recovery disc on usb and DVD-r without any luck on ubuntu. Yes I know how to setup my computer to boot from cd/dvd or usb. I only have access to windows command prompt and ubuntu system on external usb jump drive I have no access to windows computer.
