i guys. I have been having BSOD issues with my PC for months.  I have tried to search on the Stop Codes and folllowed instructions tp resolve that I have found on the internet, but no improvement. Can anyone please step me through finding the log/crash information on my PC that may assist with finding the problem software or hardware please?  I can then upload the information for further assistance.

 

I am running Windows 10 and have 'reset' the operating system. I have also used Driver Booster to update drivers.  I have attached a file of my system specification generated by Driver Booster.

 

OK, thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.

 

Regards

JohnC19

Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: (from the pinned topic at the top of the forum)   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
FYI - I don't often use the Perfmon report, so if it doesn't work please just let me know.
NOTE:  On problem systems it can take up to 20 minutes for the log files to complete.  Please be patient and let it run.

If you still have problems with it running, there's an alternate tool here (direct download link):  https://github.com/blueelvis/BSOD-Inspector/releases/download/1.0.5/BSODInspector-1.0.5.exe

NOTE:
Please zip up the (.ZIP) files - do not use .RAR, .7z or other compression utilities. 
.ZIP is the type file that can be uploaded to the forums.

usama,

Hi and thanks for your message. I downloaded the Perform tool and ran the report which only took about 1 minute.  Now, I cannot find on her how to upload/attach the file...how do I do this?? On my original post, t ha the option to attach files, but on this response window, I do not have that option.

 

Also, you mentioned 2 x Zip files in your message, but Perform only generated the 1 file.  Please let me know if I need to run another report using another tool?  Or do you think both reports have been generated in the 1 file now.

 

Thanks again.

JohnC19

usama,

Hi again.  Just got home from work, so reran the Perform program and it created the attached zip file. Hopefully the Perform_Report_Johnc19.zip and this attached file are the two files that I was suppose to upload.  Hope to hear back soon.

 

Cheers

Your UEFI/BIOS (version F5) dates from 2010.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).
I am concerned over the age of the BIOS and wonder about it's ability to support W10.  Unfortunately, the only way to test this is to revert to the original OS and see if that stops the problems.

 

Only 5 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most build 14393 (1607) systems have more than this.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.
The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.

 

Please note the large nuimber of older drivers (from before W10 was released) in the report below.
I would suggest updating them to the latest, W10 compatible versions (links for more info about them are below the list of drivers).

If unable to update them, please post back for suggestions on what to do with each one.

 

For example, if you can't update the WinModem device driver - ltmdm64.sys (it dates from 2006) - then uninstall the software for it and physically remove the modem from your system.

If unable to remove it, disable it in the BIOS (NOT in Device Manager!).

 

From the variety of errors in the WER section of the MSINFO32 report, I suspect a hardware problem (could also be compatibility or low-level driver issues)

I would start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Please run ALL of the diagnostics and let us know the results

 

From the 4 memory dumps that I successfully rand through the debugger, I wonder about a driver problem.
For this I'd suggest running Driver Verifier according to these instructions:  http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html

Hi again and thanks for your analysis and recommendations.  Sorry for taking so long to get back with an update. There has been mayhem!

OK, so I had to roll back to the previous restore pint to be able to boot up.

Then I updated the bios.  No issues. PC was booting up fine. 

Then I downloaded the GIGABYTE Download Center from Gigabyte site.  Checked the drivers and came back with no update required.

I did have a couple of crashes with Kernel Security Check Failure and later IRQL Not Less or Equal.

Then Win10 did its updates.  Downloaded updates for KB3213986, KB3214628, KB890830.

To install the updates, a restart was required.

Then PC would hand on startup.  To get it booted, had to go back to previous restore point. 

Then managed to do Win 10 updates as per above.

Then shut down and rebooted....ok.

Then shut down again and rebooted...and it would hang again.

Used Win10 repair disk to get to a command prompt.

Ran chkdsk...and came back with Stage 3 error - Examining security descriptions. 7 data files processed. Errors detected in uppercase file. Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50.  I have see this same error before when running chkdsk.

 

Grrrrrr....

 

it OK...out of frustration, then I opened the case, thinking I could try to eliminate a RAM problem,  I have 4 sticks of 2GB memory. I removed 1 stick at a time and tried reboot. On each reboot, it hangs at the same point with a black screen and active mouse pointer.  I tried inserting #4 mem stick in the #1 slot....no change.  So...do not think it is a RAM issue.

 

OK...will try to use Win 10 repair disk...restore to previous point.  I know that should boot, but will start crashing again soon.

 

I hae run stress software only a week ago on hard disk, memory and video card.  No issues were identified...so I though I could eliminate hardware.That is when I reset Win 10...thinking it must be software.

 

Anyway...where to from here?

I would suggest trying a clean boot and see if you're able to get into Windows that way:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows

To do this you'll likely have to get into Safe Mode to run MSCONFIG from there.

 

I am also concerned about the CHKDSK error - if you are able, run CHKDSK again and see if it has errors again

If it does, then (IMO) that's a symptom that suggests the HDD may be bad.

Then run the long/extended hard drive diagnostics here:  http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

The short/quick test isn't accurate enough for our purposes as it only spot checks the disk - and doesn't test the entire disk

Ok...thanks for all the advice. I restored back to a good restore point. Disabled windows updates...maybe coincidental, but each time windows completed updates for KB3213986, KB3214628, KB890830...that is when I started having boot problems again. So have disabled updates for now and created a new restore point. Through running WhoCrashed, it did identify the AMD display driver as an issue. I uninstalled the driver and went back to my original display driver disk and did the install. I created a new restore point.
Well, it is working for now. Boots up every time. I will monitor for a few days or a week and see if any crashed occur. If not, then I will enable windows update and try installing one at a time and run it for a few days to see if the problem surfaces again.

Any other thoughts are welcome.

Hi all. I finally got to the botto om the issues. I can confirm it was corrupt Windows files. I narrowed it down by the PC functioning well when restored to a previous restore point.  Once Windows Update ran and tried to install the new updates, the PC went into meltdown again and crashed.  I repeated this a few times,

I did try and run SFC/ SCANNOW abd DISN, but neither could finish without errors.

So, I downloaded the latest Win 10 ISO and mounted onto a DVD and did the full install.

All running very well. Al the latest Win!) updates were downloaded and installed.

OK, thankyou so much for all your advice.  Hoefully, my expereince can help others also.

 

Cheers

Thanks for letting us know.

FYI - most problems with Windows Updates like you described, are from outdated drivers/programs on the system

Then, when installing the Windows Update(s), it encounters a problem with the old stuff and causes the symptoms that you describe.

 

Good luck!

usasma,

hi again. Thanks for the explanation.  How do I find the outdated driver/program?

 

Since my fresh install, every thing was working well...then I noticed that the Start menu stopped working and the notififications pane would not open!  I ran sfc /scannow and it said it could not rectify some problems. I then ran DISM and it restored health. Re ran sfc and no errors.  The start menu and notification pane still did not work.

 

Well, on a hunch, I uninstalled 1 of the 4 updates that windows update had installed since my fresh win 10 install.  I uninstalled KB83213986, rebooted and all is working well.  Win 10 has since re-installed KB83213986 and all seems to be working.

 

I thought Windows does the updates of the drivers as well?  So, wouldn't all the drivers be up to date?

Anyway, if you can let me know how to find the offending drivers/programs...maybe I can do a manual update.

 

Thanks fo ryour help again.

johnc19.

That's the problem!  Identifying the problem driver/program isn't all that easy

I suggest that you start in Programs and Features and look for programs that were installed prior to W10 being released (29 July 2015).

You can also check in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers folder for older drivers.  DO NOT mess with these - just use them to look up the program associated with them (I have a listing at http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.php )

Then update the program and see if that updates the driver.
FWIW - there are some older drivers that work just fine in W10 (like the Realtek Audio drivers) - so age alone is not the primary factor in deciding.

 

Windows does have the ability to update drivers but:

- it has to be turned on ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15054/windows-7-automatically-get-recommended-drivers-updates-hardware )

- the drivers at Windows Update have to be updated by the manufacturers (not always done on a timely basis).  Microsoft doesn't update these - they just provide a place for the developers/manufacturers to post the updates.

 

I'm not a Windows Update expert, so I can't tell you what the offending update did.  You may want to post over in the Windows 10 forums for some more expert advice.

 

I get my "suspects" from the drivers listed in the memory dumps that you provided (the list is in Post #7 above).

The most suspect one (IMO) is the WinModem device served by the ltmdm64.sys driver which dates from 2006 (and I mentioned this in my previous post)

 

Here's the rest of the drivers from the memory dumps that date from before W10 was released.

Included are links so you can figure out which program/device needs to be updated:
