my PC is having a variety of problems I and none of the people I showed them to can explain.
This has been going on for a while, and I am now deciding to ask in this Forum in hope of finally finding a solution.
The PC is self-built, I ordered the Components online, and it worked fine for a while, so I think that component mismatches are unlikely.
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N
Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393
Intel Core i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10GHz
NVidia GeForce GTX 750
Main hard drive:
Additional hard drives:
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB;
TOSHIBA STOR.E ALU 2S USB Device (1TB, used for backup)
I hope that's enough information , I will provide further details on request.
Now on to the problems I am experiencing, in order of appearance:
1. PC crashing on startup
Whenever I start up my PC from shutdown, it goes into a kind of blue screen and attempts to restart. This happens from 5 to 20 times, sometimes ever more often, until the system reaches that magical state of stability, where I can use the PC normally. This does not happen after energy saving mode, or after a normal restart.
Different "Stopcodes" that have appeared on a sample startup, which had a total of 14 crashes:
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (happened 6 times in total)
DPC_WATCHDOG VIOLATION (happened 4 times in total)
I should probably also mention that there is no fixed point at which the crashes occur. Sometimes the PC seems stable for a couple of minutes before crashing again.
Once it's completely stable though, it never crashes again until you shut down the pc and start it up again.
2. Updates failing multiple times
A small but annoying problem. My PC always needs a couple of days and thereby multiple attempts to install windows updates, and so my pc almost always wakes up form power save mode during my sleep.
I don't know if it is a common problem that windows updates take a couple of tries, but I don't see a reason why it should be.
3. Task Bar and other things don't function properly
There are multiple functions of my pc that stopped working at some point (I don't remember exactly what I did beforehand).
Here are the things I noticed to not be working:
1. The start button as well as the notifications button and the return to desktop button do absolutely nothing.
2. The Task bar can't be disabled anymore, meaning it is present during anything that isn't a fullscreen game.
3. When right-clicking the task bar, I can't access the system settings anymore. Pressing the "settings" button just does nothing.
4. Opening a picture with the standard windows pictures program throws out this error: [image path] Class not registered
That's my PC, and I am really embarrased to be having so many problems with it. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
