It's around 8 PM on a beautiful Friday afternoon, and all I want to do is hop onto some Rocket League for some good times. I go to turn on my computer, and BAM! DRIVER_VERIFIER_IOMANAGER_VIOLATION comes up, and won't stop coming up. On occasion, it tells me that cfosspeed6.sys is the cause.
So, I let it try to automatically repair the problem - thinking maybe if it didn't work, I could just hop into safe mode and see what's up. Wrong! Before automatic repair even loads, I get hit with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, and it just restarts in a cycle.
However, I am able to boot from a Windows To Go drive, or installation media.
Here's what I've done so far:
- Ran sfc /scannow from WinPE, no integrity violations.
- I ran DISM /Image:J:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, and it completed successfully, but didn't seem to help much. (J: was the drive letter in WinPE.)
- I ran chkdsk /f, it said it repaired something, but it didn't fix the issue at hand.
- I ran memtest86, memory tested fine, no errors. (Also swapped the memory around, used one at a time as well.)
- I've tried a system restore, and it fails because it can't find the original version of Java that was on the computer before the restore point was made.
- I ran startup repair from the installation media, it suggests a System Restore, which fails.
- Unplugged all peripherals, other than mouse/keyboard.
- Removed the GTX 970 and tried going off of the iGPU, no luck.
- Tried a completely different stick of memory, no luck.
So by now, I'm completely out of ideas. My only options left, in my eyes, are to go back to the Anniversary Update and hope for the best, or reinstall Windows entirely (which I'd love to avoid either of those at all costs.)
Does anyone have any ideas? I've tried looking for dump files, but the only one I could find was from the 20th, and it wasn't related to this.
Here's my specs if you're interested:
Intel Core i7 4770
16GB DDR3 1600
NVidia GeForce GTX 970
2x SSDs, 4x HDDs
