Q: Y700 Cold boot graphics problem, GTX 960M not dete...

Hi, Having problems when bringing system back up from shutdown (cold boot). GTX 960M graphics is not found at all, have to reboot right away for it to be detected. No problems whatsoever after reboot. Heres what I've tried so far to solve the problem;Reinstall all drivers, including graphics driversPut fast boot from windows 10 settings to offPut fast boot from BIOS to offReinstall Windows 10, clean installReinstall Windows 10, with Lenovo softwareAny ideas on solving the problem? Could this be BIOS update related like the "no display" -cases seen here lately? Lenovo solution center reports everything being OK, except for the "stress test" from GTX 960M. Regards, Jarmo, Finland

Welcome to the forums.

I am not sure about the reason for your issue, hence my recommendation would be to contact Lenovo support by Phone and send in your laptop for a repair. You should explain things to them in detail about the Cold boot issue.

Since this is the first time I am hearing about this issue, It could be an impending GPU failure or just a loose connection, cannot be sure until the laptop is looked at.

Hello, I bought my Ideapad y700 about 2 weeks ago. Since then no problem until yesterday. I was playing Dragon Age while suddenly the screen went white and the game crashed with the following error :Nvidia display driver has stopped  responding and has recovered So I just launched the game again and then some graphical glitch started to appear at launch (like in my screenshot attached to this topic). I tried this things without success :1. Reinstall driver from nvidia website (clean install with DDR)2. Reinstall old driver form Lenovo website3. Used somme trick from the internet to toggle on/off some graphics settings in the game4. Finally reinstalled completely the system and still have issues5. Tested another games (GW2, Jedi Academy), same problem6. Tried to use Intel HD graphic instead, games launched with no problem I'm completely lost, Lenovo support answer me to reinstall the computer again...Can some one help me please ? Thanks, Aymeric

hi,i bought a new y700-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)  2 monthes ago, and less than a day trouble poped up. the main trouble is with freezing screen, smudged screen, black windows when i saved files in illustration.  the laptop went back to the store and they reinstalled drivers and win 10 and the problem kept going. than it went to lenovo lab and they reinstalled win 10 and again same problem, they say everything is ok but i insist that its not, and i have pictures and videos to prove that.  i demanded to replace the new laptop but got refused by the store and by lenovo (for now its in the hand of my lawyer). in lenovo solution center i get this warning for the GeForce GTX 960M: The test returns a warning. A thermal protection mechanism was triggered. Please be sure the case ventilation openings are not obstructed. can that be the problem and the solution for lenovo to finally replace the new laptop? i must say i'm really frustrated and not using the laptop at all for the main purpose which is my business as a designer companey. can you please solve my problem? thanks, oren.

Hi gummygam , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Similar to this thread discussed : 
 
"The "thermal protection mechanism was triggered. Please be sure the case ventilation openings are not obstructed" error means that the GPU reached its peak temperature and it was possibly throttled down to protect the GPU chip from overheating. " 
 
This would explain the display and freezing issue you are having . 
You may check on the warranty service you can avail from here and report this findings to the tech support team for them to provide needed repair .

Hi,I have y700 15ISK 80NW laptop which has Nvidia 960m and Intel HD graphics 530. My problem is I cannot run some games such as Fifa 16 Rocket League.  I get errors. I guess it is happening because my laptop is trying to run games with Intel graphics card. Sometimes restarting laptop or disabling and enabling nvidia card from device manager can solve the problem. But after some hours or the next day I am having the same issue again. I tried -Installing latest drivers from Lenovo's website.-Installing latest drivers from Nvidia's and Intel's websites.-Re-installed games and formatted/clean installed windows 10. Nothing has worked.   When I first bought this laptop Windows 10 home was installed then I clean installed original Windows 10 Enterprise. Can this cause problem? Do I need to try installing Win10 home? One last thing, I wonder am I the only one having issues with graphics card on this laptop?

Guys I messed up real bad... I saved up money for a year to buy this laptop and finally yesterday ordered it in ebay, and afterwards going through the details I noticed it didn't say that it had the gtx 960m video card but rather intel HD graphics built in. The price is the same as the other versions of the laptop with the gtx on eBay and I just happened to be a complete moron not checking twice as I should've and order this particular version http://www.ebay.com/itm/272181768757?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
My question is does it even exist? Dell 7559 without the gtx 960m? It's the same price as the ones with the gtx video card.
I don't even know what to do...

A:Is there a version of the Dell inspiron 7559 without the gtx 960m graphics card?

When you are buying from online Market, you have to double check you are getting an functional complete legit products, and read reviews from many sources before buying a specific products.
In your case, Dell Inspiron 15 7559 was an "Manufacture Refurbished" of returned Inspiron 15 to the factory according to the description.
Thus, read carefully next time, as refurbished are likely "tested" to function as intended. From the page on Ebay you have brought, it might have been a bad buy, so you got rip off for the wrong product if you did not get your refund. Ebay in my view is not too safe, it more of a trade market  versus places where you can buys computer officially. Thus this problem is between you and the seller.

PS: Yeah most I15 7559 model should have Geforce 960M graphic as detail here >http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-15-7559-laptop/pd?ref=PD_OC<.

A:cold boot problem

Answer Match 62.16%

I have an hp desktop with xp pro (sp2). When I start it up cold in the morning, it gets to the black screen with the xp logo and progress bar, and freezes. The appearance of the screen is also a little faded. When this problem first began, the progress bar would begin moving and then freeze, but now it never even moves. If I shut down the computer (holding power button) and then start again in a couple minutes, I get the black screen with startup options. From there it will start fine whether I choose "start normally" or "start using last known good configuration. If at some point during the day I restart the computer it will restart normally. A couple days ago AVG detected and removed "adamax.BEB." I have run malwarebytes with nothing found. Occasionally at random times I get and error message of "generic host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and has to close," but this has been going on for a long time. Another anecdote is that for about a year the mouse freezes upon startup, a problem I have been fixing by just unplugging and replugging in the mouse after startup, and then the mouse functions.

I am not aware of any new software downloaded recently that I haven't uninstalled. There is no new hardware. I did a system restore as far back in time as I could, with no change. I am considering downloading and running 360Amigo or RegScrubXP, and also doing an XP reinstall to fix errors. Any recommendations?

A:XP Pro (SP2) Cold Boot Problem

Forget the programs you mentioned...do a clean install and install all critical updates. SP2 does not reflect well over 100 critical updates which are deemed vital to system defense by microsoft.

Before doing a clean install...I would run the appropriate diagnostic on my hard drive...to ensure that the drive is not part of the problem.

System manufacturer and model?

Your potential probless...seem to extend beyond what your title suggests, IMO.

Hello all -

Recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit on my Gateway P-173XL FX laptop and had no problems. Only driver issue was with the nVidia 8800M GTS driver and after being in eMail contact with nVidia I was able to obtain a driver for the card that didn't cause the system to crash. All went well until the DVD burner failed and the system went in for repair. Before this I was having problems with the video card drivers loading on the *first boot * of the day and thought the burner replacement would stop the problem........it didn't.

I received the system back, formatted the HD, reinstalled everything again and configured. Obtained yet a 4th driver from nVidia and all seemed to go well up until about a week ago when the laptop started - AGAIN - with this bootup issue. It seems to happen only when the system has been "cold" for a few hours, like overnight, and it either hangs completely at the "Welcome" splash screen or does boot up but without the video card and Synaptic touchpad drivers loaded (can see that in Device Manager). If I reboot they then load with everything else. While I am getting no BSOD this having to do hard shut-downs again and booting twice every morning is getting to be a hassle.

I've spent hours searching the Internet for these issues and Microsoft says they are are aware of the situation but that it causes no problems. Well it's a HASSLE to keep rebooting a system or having to do hard shut-downs becau... Read more

I'm having a problem with booting my laptop - but only when cold-booting.

Never heard about this problem before. I can reboot just fine, and if i acces the BIOS and just go straight on exiting, not changing anything - it too boots windows normally without any hitches.

How is booting different from cold-boot to rebooting or through BIOS? I've been toying around with EFI boots, but everything [should be] reverted and i used my windows disc to repair the boot sequence. After the BIOS splash it just lingers and the "starting windows" gui doesnt appear.

Edit and edit2: I've now tried for a couple of times to let it sit, and it does boot up after about 4 minutes consistently. It goes like this:
I press power on. After,
3 seconds the BIOS splash comes on.
7 seconds the screen goes black.
4 min 0 seconds the screen turns off, then immediately turns on again with a black screen.
4 min 3 seconds the BIOS splash reappears.
4 min 7 seconds the "windows starting" gui comes on.
4 min 25 secs windows is booted up and responsive.

So the Black screen is consistently just about 3 minutes and 53 seconds. All BIOS settings are properly set to boot from HDD. No external HDDs or FDDs connected. Even removed the excess drive letter assignments in windows to be safe.

WhoCrashed Report is below

My thoughts were that it was a video driver issue, but uninstalling and reinstalling the video drvers and ati catalyst 13.1 have not fixed the issue. I also ran Memtest 86+ v4.20 to check for bad memory but 8 passes show no errors. This problem didn't happen when I was running win xp, only began when I installed windows 8 on 1/13. Any help would be appreciated, because I'm lost at this point.

Thanks,

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

All these products were bought from Newegg.com except for the hard drive and OS

Heres the problem. The install of Windows went fine. Everything works good except when I cold boot the system (leave it off overnight and then turn it on). For some reason what happens is Windows loads with the logo then appears as if its going to the log in screen. it shows the cursor for about 10 seconds and then the system restarts. however, all i have to do to fix this cold boot problem is remove the memory and replace it in the slots. It works good until the next time i have to cold boot.

Here's my strange problem:

I have a 120gb Seagate HDD that I use for backup storage. I have been using the drive for about 5 months now without a problem. One day I booted it up and realized that BIOS did not detect it. It is currently SECONDARY SLAVE. The strange part is, once I get into winxp, it sees the drive - albeit in PIO ONLY mode instead of DMA. Once I do a reboot (NOT A COMPLETE SHUTDOWN), BIOS sees the drive and it functions normally again - winxp sees the drive as correctly functioning and in DMA mode.

What's strange is that once I start up the computer from a cold boot, go into BIOS, and check what devices are where, BIOS does not see anything in secondary slave at first. Once, I do an "auto detect" it picks up the info on my HDD and it works fine.

I've tried flashing the BIOS and the problem persists. HOWEVER, the drive works fine as secondary MASTER. I swapped my sec. slave and master and the setup works fine. The device that I put into slave (a liteon 811s dvd writer) detects correctly and works fine in windows. I just have no idea why the seagate drive does not detect at first boot.

Here are my specs:
pentium 4 2.4
EliteGroup L4S8A2 mobo latest 1.0E BIOS
PRIMARY MASTER: maxtor 80gb
PRIMARY SLAVE: seagate 80gb
SECONDARY MASTER: liteon 811s
SECONDARY SLAVE: seagate 120gb (problem drive)
OS: WinXP Pro SP1

Please provide any feedback, this is driving me crazy!
 

A:VERY strange Seagate HDD problem - cannot detect on cold boot, but detects on reboot

A big drive like that 120G requires an 80-wire IDE flat-cable. It will run on a 40-wire cable but only at a reduced rate. Being on the same cable as a CD, reduces the HD to the DMA/PIO level of that CD.
The CD-drive only needs a 40-wire and will probably not even function with an 80-wire cable.
So unless you get another PCI-IDE controller, you will have some speed and/or compatibility problems.
Make that 120GB master and run that CD as slave, since that works (as you say).

Hello i bought my computer a month and a half ago. Since then my has been doing fine not perfect but fine. It sometimes makes a small vibrating sound which goes away when i give a gentle tap on the computer.  However today i wanted to move my user from my ssd to my seagate after that everything went south. I needed to start fresh again so i started recovery which worked until a while later when it said the recovery didnt work. After that i clicked to proceed to windows. When it restarted i got a bios message saying "Configuration change was requested to clear this computer's TPM(Trusted Platform Module)WARNING: Clearing erases information stored on the TPM. You will loose all created data encrypted by these keys.Press F12 to clear the TPMPress ESC to reject this change request and continue" I pressed F12 because i wanted to recover my computer or it wont recover(in my knowledge).

Computer: Dell Inspiron 1525, 320 GB HD with about 2 GB of free space left, 4 MB memory, running Vista Home Premium 32-Bit, SP1, updates current. Just lately, booting from off, Windows will not load, but instead gives me a \Boot\BCD error (0xc00000f)--an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. I have repaired this error with my Dell-supplied OS disc repeatedly, and each time I turn off the computer it has the same error at startup. I have read that I may have to rebuild the BCD, but I don't know how to do that. Before I check with Dell, who I suspect will just tell me to reload Windows, I need to know how approach fixing my boot configuration data. The computer has had no new software installations, just routine Windows and Trend Micro Internet Security updates, I checked the disc for errors, and a few files were missing or incorrect, and defragmentation has also been performed routinely. Dell PC checkup finds no issues. How should I proceed?

I have a dual boot installation with Windows XP and Windows 7 on the same drive with two partitions. Both work just fine.

However most times that I boot from a cold boot, I get NO Boot options menu, just a blank screen and the hard drive light glows red, but it doesn't really seem to be doing anything.

If I press the reset switch, everything works just fine, the computer reboots, I get a boot options menu for selecting the operating system and either one boots up just fine.

If I shutdown the machine for any period of time, I'll get the blank screen until I do a hard reset.

It seems like the boot loader is not finding the ini file with the options, but only on a cold boot? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

So, I just got a Y700 w.o. operating system. I installed Windows 10 on the machine (and disabled driver updates). The problem is: Installing a driver for the graphics card (GTX 960m) causes problems with the operating system. I can't access the nVidia control panel (does not open), and as soon some program tries to interact with the card, the driver crashes. After a while, Windows crashes with a bluescreen (VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERAL_ERROR). I tried all sorts of drivers - the recommended ones from the Lenovo drivers page, newer ones directly from nVidia as well as several older ones. Of course I wiped the drivers in safe mode in between. Any help?

Yesterday Windows Explorer began to stop responding fairly frequently, but would restart itself without issue and continue to run fine. Today, Windows now freezes completely every 45ish minutes - usually a random program stops responding followed by everything, the mouse gets stuck, CTRL+ALT+DELETE does nothing, and it stays frozen this way. I've had one BSOD happen right after this occurs (I couldn't get the error code with auto-reboot but I just turned that off). The most recent freeze I got a "The logon process was unable to display security and logon options when CTRL+ALT+DELETE was pressed" message, and Windows just stayed frozen that way with nothing responding.

Upon hitting Restart button on my case or following the BSOD auto-reboot, my OS drive (a Crucial M4) it isn't detected in the BIOS, leading to a "Disk Boot Failure" message. Oddly, if I do a cold boot from this point and power back on, the Crucial M4 is detected and Windows starts normally. I can also boot normally after shutting down and restarting from within Windows. But no matter what, around 45 minutes later Windows then freezes again in the exact same way, repeating the cycle. I'm totally at a loss, please help!

I'm new here and have searched the web but can't seem to find similar symptoms.
I've noticed after performing various updates (either to whatever programs or Windows itself - any ones that require a re-start) that when I re-start my laptop and when the Alienware logo appears, booting basically freezes. I'm only having issues when I restart...even when there are no pending updates to anything. 
I tested today and booting actually continues on its own, but VERY slowly.  If I get stuck at this screen and I press my power button, the laptop immediately turns off.  Pressing the power button again boots the machine (to what I consider) normally.  It basically whizzes by the Alienware logo screen and into Windows without issue.  If I fully shutdown, then use the power button to boot up, everything goes normally too.  Re-starting (anytime) is when my issue occurs.

Hello,  I have the Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) which I received as a replacement for my last Lenovo which could not be fixed by Lenovo Support. Since I received this as a replacement, my warranty only lasted a month (the residual from my initial warranty). Now, I have only had it for a few months and it has had many instances of the blue screen of death with my computer suddenly needing a restart. I do not have warranty anymore so I am reaching out to you all. The hardware scan says the Mathmatical Operations Test on my Intel (HD) Graphics 550 card failed. I got the result code: WVC007002-UL7VFK. I could not find any information about this code online.  Through the Lenovo website I tried to update my Intel driver by downloading the one the website recommended for my computer after I entered my Serial # (I think it was Intel VGA) and after it downloaded I got a warning saying: "Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit." Regarding the blue screen of death, there have been several different error messages, but the one that comes the most often is "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". The most recent blue screen message was "Stop Code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION; What failed: igdkmd64.sys" I am not sure if these problems are related, but it seems the most important issue is the graphics driver since I use a lot o...

There's a computer adage. Problems when the system is cold are related to connections. These go away when the system warms up and things expand. So for starters double check all connections concerning the hard drive and where the IDE cable attaches to the motherboard.

Have you guys ever had a PC take itself out of the domain after a cold boot?

in a warm boot/restart the pc will stay on the domain and all the trusts work fine you can connect to it, it can connect to others but if you shut down, wait and then turn the power back on you can't log on to the domain again?!?!? you get the error " the system cannot log you on to this domain because the systems computer account in it's primary domain is missing or the password on that account is incorrect"

the only way to get back on is to log on to the local machine, put it on a workgroup, reboot, put it back on the domain, reboot and then I can log back on to the domain...

Hi Guys,

3 weeks ago I upgraded my Vista ultimate x64 to Windows 7 ultimate 64.
And now I have a strange problem.
Sometimes when I start the computer (cold boot) I get an BSOD with CNG.sys
It keeps remaining everytime I reboot.
When I start the recovery option and let the system restore the pc the problem is solved and Windows 7 starts perfect. Sometimes when I boot the pc it goes without a problem and othertimes I get the BSOD and need to do a recovery.

I thought that VMWare Workstation could be the problem and uninstalled the software but it didnt help. Even the driver updates by windows update didnt solve it.
Im thinking now about a reinstall with a clean install but maybe any1 has an other option.

Hi there, about a month ago I decided to get myself a new rig. I ordered the parts online and put them together myself. At first everything worked fine, I got Windows 7 up and running and drivers were installed without error. Then I decided to try and overclock my i5 2500k, since I have little experience with overclocking in general I googled a little and read up on a few step-by-step tutorials on how to go about with this. I'm not sure wether or not it's something I've meddled with that caused this problem, but in the middle of clicking around in my BIOS my computer suddenly dies. On reboot it halts and crashes after a few seconds only to reboot again before it even gets to the initial boot screen. It keeps going like this for 3-4 consecutive crashes until I pull the power. I open up my case and since my motherboard has a "mem-ok!" button which, according to the manual is used to reset BIOS and allow a safe boot. I press and hold for 5 seconds and it boots correctly and lets me undo any changes I've done to the BIOS. Everything seemed to be in working order, but now whenever I do a cold boot it still halts and crashes once or twice before it does a succesful boot. The problem has persisted for a few weeks now and it's bugging me because it means there's a problem somewhere. I'm clueless as to where exactly, though. Anyone with experience or input that have ran into similar issues? Feel free to share your thoughts.

A:Crash on cold boot

Hello SamohT, welcome to SF!

Do I understand correctly it crashes way before it gets to a W7 boot?
If so... check all connections in the case... sounds like a bad power or bus connection.
Does it act identical whether the boot is literally cold as in temperature, vs a shutdown and reboot when warm?

If you think it also crashes in W7 itself, please upload as in this tut:

IDE Channel 0 Master : None
IDE Channel 0 Slave : None
IDE Channel 1 Master : None
IDE Channel 1 Slave : None
SATA3 : None
SATA4 : None
SATA1 : None

Thus (with no devices detected) I'm stuck in a daily manner on either the black screen (as seen in the SS below) or (if I entered BIOS settings even though I realize it doesn't do anything) a completely blank screen with a single underscore blinking at the top left corner.

Also combinations of killing the power via the power supply button and opening it back, instant or delayed booting after that, etc., nada.
Repeated warm or cold boots (once over an hour) do not work.

Hello once again,
Ever since I bought my GIGABYTE GTX 660 I have been having problems with it. As of now, there is only one big issue with it. Whenever I boot up my computer, performance is poor. I'm talking 30-40 FPS in a game like MW2, while 90 is normal. The only way I can manage to fix this, is by rebooting. And I mean actually clicking the "reboot" button in windows. Just shutting down and then powering on again straight away does not help at all.

I have actually upgraded my PSU and memory. Problem occurred before and after system changes. I was thinking about RMA'ing this SOB, but first I'd try it in my dads computer. The card worked absolutely fine without any sort of inconsistent performance on benchmark.
I have also done a full system reinstall quite a while ago, but the problem persisted.
Only thing I can think of now is a BIOS update, but I don't want to if I don't have to. If I will update I will let you know if it helped.
Thanks

Some concrete results:
Furmark 1280x720, no AA:

Hello everyone, having BSOD at every cold boot.
This is happening on my desktop (first build I made), hardware is:
MB: Asus Maximus VIII Gene
CPU: Intel i5-6600k
RAM: 2x 8GB Crucial Ballistix
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition
Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Hoping this is some driver problem but seems to me more like RAM or (hope really not) something on the MB.
Only remember it happening, maybe, after installing every driver manually for de CPU, iGPU and MB drivers.
GPU only installed it a week later, so has nothing to do with it. After installing the GPU I have uninstalled the iGPU drivers (although only the PCI-E slot is active for GPU part in the MB).
I have testes the RAM with memtest+ and no erros, stress tested CPU and no problem there either.

Maybe it's a hardware problem but want to know what the BSOD dumps say.

Dump files are in the attachments.

A:BSOD on cold boot

The Asus P5 series of boards had memory issues with early installations of Win7. I dunno if this applies to Win8, but I'd suggest trying to set your memory timings/settings/voltages according to the RAM manufacturer's specifications (NOT using the Auto setting in the BIOS).

NTStatus of 0xc0000001 is "Operation failed" (which we know already!)

Both BSOD's are listed as probably being caused by HssDrv.sys - a component of HotSpotShield
HotSpotShield is known to cause issues on some Win7 systems, so it's reasonable to assume that it's causing similar issues on Win8. To add to this, your HotSpotShield drivers date from 2009 and may not even be compatible with Win7.

To test this, please uninstall HotSpotShield and see if the BSOD's stop.

Another likely cause of the BSOD's is the 2005 version of the ASACPI.sys (Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver). Please update to the latest version available from your motherboard's driver download page at Asus' website. Also, please note that Asus doesn't support Win7 or Win8 for this mobo, so finding compatible drivers will be difficult for you.

Download from here (select Vista 64 bit as the OS): http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5K/#download
In this case, DO NOT use the driver listed under the ATK section (this driver dates from 2007 and isn't Win7 compatible)
Instead, expand the Utilities section. The first entry will be "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista... Read more

Hello,
so i have installed windows 7 on my computer about a year ago. ive never had any blue screens due to it crashing, never had any problems to the point where i would need to re install the OS, however, ive noticed that on cold boots the system runs painfully slow, it will boot up fairly fast on a normal restart tho, like 20-35 seconds. on a cold boot it can take about 1-2 minutes to load in windows, and then once that happens its not so much it going slow as that there is a point during which i cannot click anything or else it will take forever to accomplish. what i mean by this is, it will load to my desktop and for a period of about 3 more minutes i will try to right click on the desktop and it will do the circle thing for like 20 seconds before giving me the drop down menu. if i right click again right after, it shows up instantly.
same with trying to open up a file within those first couple of minutes. it will take like 45 seconds to open a picture. its weird..
I have tweaked my windows 7 to startup only necessary drivers and turned off search index along with Aero.
My HDD isn't fragmented and ive got about 120gbs out of 450 available. so its not that bad.

Now some of you may say, well its just loading the processes. but i only have catalyst control center loading up as a startup item lol. and even after it loads. it goes through a wierd 3-4 minute phase in which everything is slow as hell. then works perfectly fine.
any help?

A:Slow Cold Boot

One difference between a warm boot and a cold boot is that in a cold boot the component devices are initialized. So it could be a failing component. Any clues in the Device Manager or the Event Viewer?

Another difference is RAM addressing. Cold boot maps the RAM, warm boot does not.
You could run Memtest86+ to test your RAM.

Another difference is simply warming up. Power supplies and spinning hard drives, if they are failing, can have issues when starting up from a dead stop, but work fine when warmed up. I think video cards can have a issue too.

I'm just throwing some things out here - brainstorming.

How does it do going into Safe Mode?

I have system stability problems for a long time. I always thought it was my TV tuner card, but now that I have it removed, the problems still persist.

Problem:
The system can run fine for some days (in which I boot up every morning), and suddenly be heaviliy instable on some days: black screen during bios boot, Windows crashes or reboots during boot, or the blue bios setup freezes, or a reboot in the blue bios setup. During these problems, I have to remove power from the PC a number of times, wait, try again etc. Or simply leave it off for some hours and then try it again. The problems seem to be called "cold boot problems" in by some users in similar cases.

Specs:
-CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.20 GHz (normal speed) (temperature around 42 degrees celsius)
-RAM: 4 GB total, Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/4G (kit of 2 modules)
-MoBo: Asus M4A79XTD EVO (Chipset: AMD 790X / SB750)
-GPU: Club3D HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E (passive cooled by default) (ATI Radeon HD 5750 chipset)
-PSU: Seasonic M12 II Bronze 620W (previous PSU: Seasonic S12-430, 430W had similar problems, if I'm correct)
-OS: Windows 7 64bit
-BIOS: set to default, except: serial port disabled, firewire disabled, and AHCI mode instead of IDE mode.

Memtest runs without problems for at least 8 hours during a test. Maybe it won't run normal when the system is instable, although a quick test using Win7 memtest, didn't show any problems on a single run.

Is there an Asus program for your MB that monitors voltages and temps?

A:Cold boot BSoDs and more

The discrepancies in how your memtests are showing could be caused by a faulty power supply, which can fluctuate in its power output and cause unexpected hardware problems. The motherboard could also contribute to this.

Have you swapped sticks and tested them all on each solitary slot? You may have a bad memory slot or two, in which case it'd be the motherboard that would need replacing. If you want my honest opinion, though, I'd say the power supply is to blame.

Do you have your system overclocked? If so, reset to factory defaults. In addition, check for any BIOS updates, and also check the website for your motherboard manufacturer to confirm if the RAM you have present is compatible with that mobo.

Hi everyone, new to the forums so go easy on me . I have read about a half dozen similar threads and still have yet to find a solution.

I've been an avid computer person who puts together systems in his spare time, and have never seen this problem before.

What is happening is each cold boot of the computer, I will ALWAYS BSOD within the first few minutes, after the mouse starts to lag really bad and skip around. If i IMMEDIATELY restart the computer, it will literally run for weeks without a hiccup.

I have replaced nearly every part of my rig minus the CPU and Memory. I've put in a new MOBO, SSD/SATA drives, Video card, Power supply. Flashed the BIOS with the latest version. The only thing left is the CPU.

I've recently ran the windows memory diagnostics everything passed fine, but I've bought new memory just in case - will try that tonight.

I have attached the files as requested by the forum. If I need anything else please let me know.

I am at wits end with this rig, i've dumped a lot of money, and having to restart it right after boot up seems silly!

Thx in advance,

I've been getting a weird BSOD everytime I cold boot in the morning. However, unlike the other cold boot BSOD's I've read about on the site, my comp doesn't blue screen until after i've passed the loading screen, and I log into my desktop.

It's really weird, but I always have enough time to log in, load msn and do stuff. Then, while i'm in the middle of surfing the net (basically, not very high demanding stuff), the computer would BSOD, and restart. Then there would be absolutely no problems until the next time i turn off my computer and turn it on the next morning.

I've already run memtest (I previously had BSOD problems, fixed with a clean reformat and reinstallation of windows 7) and there are no problems with my ram.

Yesterday, I tried to hibernate and see if there would be a change. There was not. I attached the minidump for this bluescreen. Let me know if I need to provide additional details. Thanks for your help!

A:Cold Boot BSOD....I believe...

Don't happen to have G.Skill ram do you? Im having the exact same problem, and hear that it could either be a power supply problem, or particularly G.Skill ram problem. The next time you go to switch your PC on, instead of booting into windows, run a memtest.

Good Luck

I'm not sure why it does this. But if i start the computer up while its been off for a while, it gets to the POST screen and gets hung on "locating IDE connections", but if i hit the restart button it finds them instantly.

Any ideas why this would happen?

Hi
Every morning my WXP Pro freezes on the moving bar seek screen.

I have to press the reset button then all OK all day with all fresh log ins (unless the PC is off for quite a few hours).

A:cold boot freeze

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm sorry to hear you're having problems, but let's see if we can find a remedy.
Have you tried running check disc? If not click "Start", "RUN" and type in "chkdsk /r" without the quotes. You'll see a command prompt window stating that "Chkdsk cannot be run because the volume is in use by another process". Type Y and enter to have it run on the next reboot. Then reboot your system.
This will scan you hard drive for errors and attepmt to fix any that is found.

As for the page file, I don't think that would cause your system to lock on a cold boot. The page file is known as virtual memory and basically uses hard space as memory when the system needs it. The settings can be found in "System Properties" under "Advanced", Performance "settings", "Advanced" tab again, on the bottom of the page you'll see the page file size. Normally windows sets the page file so you shouldn't need to change the setting.

As w/many posters, I have had the BSOD w/a cold boot recurring for several weeks. It does not occur w/a warm reboot. I haven't installed any new hardware and this issue seems to have arisen spontaneously (something I'm sure you've heard many times before). Per your instructions, I am attaching the zip file w/info re my specific status - at least, I hope I'm sending the right information.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me w/this frustrating problem.

I have a problem with a D-Link DGE-530T NIC. On a Windows XP Pro SP2 PC, it will not get properly detected on a cold boot--Windows XP detects it as an Ethernet Controller and does not accept the downloaded drivers for the DGE-530T. If I restart, Windows XP detects the DGE-530T and automatically installs drivers. However, on the next cold boot, the problem reoccurs.

Also, I have two of these NICs, and swapping them produces the same problem in the same PC while either NIC works fine in another Windows XP PC. I've cleaned the registry, checked for bad entries in Device Manager, and have nothing further to go on. Help please!

A:NIC Not Detected on Cold Boot

I might as well post some of the other things I've tried.

I've suspected that it's actually a BIOS issue, although I don't have much to base that on. The way it fails to properly detect from a cold boot but then gets it right on a warm restart reminds me of older hard drives that wouldn't spin up in time before the BIOS moved on and would fail to be detected; BIOS manufacturers used to insert an optional delay that solved this problem. I looked in the BIOS of this ECS Nforce3A (1.0A) for that option but I didn't find it. Instead, I tried disabling quick boot testing in the hopes that it would accomplish the same thing, but it didn't have an effect other than making boot take forever--it takes a long time to test 2GB of RAM three times.

I'm going to see if my BIOS is updated to the latest version. Other than that, I'm not sure what else it could be. Something to do with the PCI slots themselves? I've tried each of them on this board, so if it is related it's a problem with how all of them are managed. I tried emailing D-Link about it but the "tech" read my email and sent me a link to the drivers. It was an effort to be polite when repeating my issue again, only to be asked to call tech support: classic "pass-the-buck" behavior.

Hi,

every time I do a cold boot, my computer crashes with bluescreen at exactly the same time, the Win7 loading screen. After this, I turn the computer off, than i turn off the power supply and a few seconds later, I turn it on again. If I now start the computer, it will boot without any problems as well as running high performance applications. I never had a bluescreen after this annyoing procedure.
EDIT: This error occurs since I've set up the computer.

I tried ram timings from G.Skill support forum, but it doesn't change anything.

So i decided to install Microsofts debugging tool, to analyze the BSOD, and guess what! I really need your help now, because I have no conception of analyzing bluescreens and stuff which comes with it.

My system configuration should be viewable in my profile details.

Excuse my bad English, I tried my best

I have a new 20 gb drive on the primary ide controller of an ASUS p4S533 motherboard with a 1.5 gh CPU running Windows XP Pro. It has a 400 watt power supply. When I turn on the computer the first time each day, it won't detect the hard drive (I get a non-system disk error). It does detect the cdrom drive on the secondary IDE controller both are in the master position). If I wait 20 minutes and then do a soft boot, it finds it, and it finds it the rest of the day. I am wondering whether this is a drive problem or a board problem. The problem has gotten worse since it got cold, and the computer is kept in a cold room, but it oesn't seem to matter if I heat the room or not.

This is what I've tried so far: I've put the drive settings in the bios manually; I've changed out the IDE cable, I've moved the drive to a different power connector, and I've updated the motherboard BIOS. This weekend, I followed some suggestions from people online and tried a few more things:
I tried the WD drive on the secondary controller; the same thing happened. I tried booting up with a different hard drive (an old 2 gb Windows 95 drive) and that drive booted fine. When I reconnected the WD drive, I got the same error (sometimes the BIOS detects the drive but says it failed). I ran Western Digital's diagnostic program (extended version) and it reported no errors on the drive.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Hello all,

I recently built an HTPC for my brother. Almost immediately after getting it up and running, we started getting BSODs. The crazy thing is that it always happens from a cold boot, and will happen over and over again. But once the machine has been running for 5 to 10 minutes or so, the boot will go through, and the machine works fine after that.

(I should say that my brother also reports BSODs while he's watching movies sometimes or doing various other tasks, but I haven't seen them and he removed the logs with CCleaner so I can't check)

So far I re-formatted and removed the RAID setup, switched hard drives from the Gigabyte SATA2 Controller to the Intel P55 controller, Switched RAM positions, ran Memtest and checkdisk several times over..... I'm just about out of ideas.

Below are the systems specs, and attached is a zip of the minidump contents, the memory dump file (nevermind, too big), the checkdisk output, and a subfolder with files created after getting crashes using Verifier.
I should note that the crashes while using Verifier were not BSODS, and probably unrelated to the problem at hand, but since I can't figure it out I don't want to leave anything out.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Been dealing with this ever since I built this PC...Cannot seem to find out what is causing it. First here is what I have experienced thus far. First (this problem has been absolutely persistent. If the machine has been shut off for a few hours (cold boot) I will get a BSOD immediately after logging in. This is typically a memory management however there has been irql not less or equal. The next issue: About 3 months ago both my keyboard and mouse (both USB) lost power at the (Starting Windows) screen. They would not work in safe mode either...however ps2 did work...I got pissed enough about this that I went bought a new hard drive and completely did a clean install of windows. That fixed the problem (other than now I have a 1tb hrd drive sitting in a drawer that isnt being used). The next problem arose about 2 weeks ago. Upon getting to the Login screen there is only 1 user listed (the last user to login to windows) the other opening just says other user and to login to that account you must type both the user name and the password. I have not lost any data other than when I replaced the HDD. I just want a solution to the problem and there hasnt been anyone that has had a clue yet. Test that i have ran include: extended HDD diagnostics from Wester Digital which was on my old HDD (it passed). Memtest for 7 passes...with 0 errors. Windows memory diagnostics with zero errors. PrimeTime CPU: maxed my cpu out for around an hr with zero problems. Here are my specs:

A:Cold Boot BSOD

Drivers are referencing what looks like valid memory addresses, but careful scrutiny makes it appear that they lost their contents, and what was valid is no longer. I also noticed a bit flip in one of the crashdumps. Bit flips are caused by PSU, Mobo, CPU or RAM problems. All these symptoms plus the fact that practically all of them are memory-related, gives me strong speculation that this is hardware-related.

First of all, ditch ever using Windows memory test. It isn't very thorough nor accurate. Memtest86+ is a better alternative. I personally have not tested PrimeTime, but Prime95 is the de facto standard for CPU testing.

Second, as you yourself noticed the PSU isn't all that grand. Understand that the PSU is probably the most crucial item to any computer setup as it is the heart that pumps the blood to the rest of the system. It is never a good idea to purchase a cheap power supply, as I can assure you that a good majority of people that come through these forums have had crashes resulting in using a poor brand PSU. On the off-chance this isn't PSU, then it can very well be motherboard, since both present similar behavior when bad.

If you are still determined to not make amends and purchase a suitable power supply for your system, you may (albeit possibly futile) continue with some hardware tests:

RAM: Memtest86+ (overnight)
CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Blend; overnight)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

Also make sure you aren't overclocking your system. Set... Read more

This is my first post on here, long time listener, first time caller etc so hello to everyone I have a annoying problem thats been bugging me for a few days now

I built a PC for my cousin last week but have had one very annoying problem:

- The first time i switch on the PC its perfectly fine, everything is normal, no temperature spikes nothing at all wrong.

- When i switch it off/shut down the pc and turn it on the second time the screen goes all funny and the display is all buggered and wonky and stuff.

- The wonkiness/glitchy screen happens on start up even before windows loads up and will continue to happen.

- The only way to fix this is to unplug/switch off the power at the source (wall socket or extension lead) where it will go back to normal.

Now i have tried it with another monitor and the same thing happens so can only assume it isn't the monitors problem, i was thinking more along the lines of faulty gfx card/motherboard or psu! but can't seem to narrow it down.

Specs are:
- MSI 6800GS 256MB GDDR3 TV + DVI PCI-E
- Asus A8N-E mobo
- Amd athlon 64 3700 San Diego (i think)
- PSU is a Hiper Type R 580W
- AOpen Nouveau Midi Tower Case
- Western Digital Caviar Special Edition 200GB
SATA-II 8MB Cache Hrad drive
- Windows XP Home editon

Any ideas on what else i can do to pinpoint this problem or what the problem could be? Any thoughts to help solve this problem would be much appreciated.

So my PC is dead again. Running windows 8.0

Things I tried:

Automatic repair - cannot detect problems
Refresh PC - "There was a problem refreshing your PC"
System restore - you need to enable drive protection
Safe mod - fail
command prompt - sfc /scannow fail

So I'm thinking of doing these steps and I need some advice from you guys if this will work:

1)Download the windows 8.1 enterprise trial
2)go to boot menu
3)Boot from pendrive
4)Do some changes to make windows in C:\ run again
5)change back to default stuff in boot menu
6)profit?

Regarding step 4, what do I need to do?

And why is windows 8 so fragile, my computer hanged and I got impatient so I press the power button 5 seconds to force it to shutdown and this happens.
When I was using windows xp and 7, this never happens and in the 5 years I've been using both, I had probably done this quite a number of times.

Thank you for reading.

PS:
And while I'm here, since when has SIW become so obnoxious?
I remember there was a free 2013 home version that runs on my machine fine.
I uninstalled that and installed the latest free version and it says it doesn't support windows 8 and it starts having ads about buying paid versions, which I remember never happens in the old one, no ads nothing.

Oh and it was me trying to run it in compatability settings that got my system hanged and no unbootable.

Hello, I'm new to this forum. But I work on computers as a hobby and a way to get some extra money, but I've ran into a problem I cannot fix, I have an HP desktop computer with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
When starting the computer I get HP logo, windows logo, then a blank screen.
If I keep trying. It eventually works fine and continues to work fine (starts up, no crashes errors etc.)
But then if it's been turned off for five or ten minutes, back to blank screen. With a mouse curser.
I've tried:
Sfc scan
Chkdsk scan
Malware bytes
Adw cleaner
Resetting the BIOS settings
Event log comes back fine too.
I have no idea what more to do, the owner of the PC said she tried a system restore, but there was no luck.

A:BSOD only on cold boot HP

Hello and welcome DS mate some specs would be good System Info - See Your System Specs

Now I usually start with the very basic stuff as you have and then move onto more basic stuff read my ditty and post back a pic of what you get - if you can.

Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 -Download < download the right bit version andclose the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power sectionwhere you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. Now the section you want will be labelled - fpr example Asus boards usually have "Nuvoton" an d Gigabyte boards "ITE" in any case the section you want will have Vbatt or VBAT in it (dead give away)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for thatbut for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main lefthand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in andthen click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in theright hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds andother essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Now the volts must be within 5% +/- of the required value see this

When I turn off the system and power on again, I am able to boot into windows with no problem. I can power the system on and reboot with no problem. I will come in the next day and power on the system and the bluescreen will happen again. This time rather than turning the system off, i hit the reset button and nothing changes. Just a continuous loop. It will be fine when i turn the system off for a minute and power on and boots into Windows. I've had this system for over a week and this is almost driving me nuts.

I recently upgraded a Toshiba A300 laptop (2009 model) from Win7 to Win10. I use a 125GB Kingston SSD as primary and a 280GB Hitachi as a secondary internal hard disk, in place of DVD drive, inside a craddle. This is a single OS installation, no dual boot. When I cold boot (from power on) and after the Bios logo, the "MBR Error 1" appears on screen and stops booting. To bypass I do a warm restart (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and the second (warm) boot loads Win 10. Also booting is ok from a Restart. Again error message appears only after a cold boot.
As a teaser I have to mention that, whenever I remove the craddle with the secondary Hitachi hard disk, the error does not appear during cold boot !!!. That is the error message appeares only if the second hard disk is installed. Does anybody have any suggestion on what might cause it and a possible solution??
This is an annoying situation only and does not affect any other operation, except booting.
Thanks in advance

A:BSOD on Cold Boot (Please Help)

Only 59 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 66 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

You have 4 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Gigabyte ET6 (EasyTune6) is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (the driver is GVTDrv64.sys). Please uninstall it. Also uninstall the Easy Saver software (gdrv.sys) as it can cause the same issues.

All of the BSOD's blame Alpham164.sys - a driver component of your Ideazon ZBoard/Ideazon Fang. These drivers date from 2007 and are likely not compatible with Win8. Please download and install the latest, Win8 compatible drivers for this device. If there are no Win8 compatible drivers, please uninstall it from your systems and physically remove the device in order to test and see if it's causing the BSOD's.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Hello,
I have been many places on the web looking to discover how to trace a cold boot.  I have an 8 minute cold boot and a 1+ minute restart.  From what I read about xbootmgr it just does restarts.  I don't want to trace a boot that is part
of a restart.
Also, I have tried many things and none have helped.  For example, cold boots into Safe mode are almost 8 minutes.  Cold boots to a very minimal operating system take almost 8 minutes.
I would very much appreciate it if a knowledgeable person would tell me how to do it, or if it is not possible, to tell me that so I can stop looking.  In the case where it is not possible I would very much like to learn why that is so.  It seems
like a very sensible, basic capability.
Thank you

Hi,

Reboot after BSOD (start Windows normally) is typically successful.

A:BSOD After cold boot

So apparently you are having this issue over years.

Some HP bloatware are causing the issue, as the crash dumps report. It is called the HP Mobile Data Protection System Disk Filter.

Code:
hpdskflt HP Filter c:\windows\system32\drivers\hpdskflt.sys Kernel Driver Yes Boot Running OK Normal No Yes
I'd recommend you to Clean Up Factory Bloatware, with a special reference to Point #13





Quote:
13. Consider a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is often better than getting a new computer considering how pre-installed bloatware can corrupt Windows 7 even if it's completely cleaned up.

Turned pc off at night time and in the morning the same thing and it has been like that for 4 days.
Thursday i backed up the sata hard drive to a 80gb ide hard drive and then took out the sata drive and put in a 40gb ide drive and reinstalled home premium. It seemed ok but when i went to turn on the pc on Friday morning the same thing happen and the same today.

Virtually all of them are caused by memory corruption. Probably caused by a driver.

Please run memtest and driver verifier

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Hey everyone, this has been a problem thats really been bothering me.

So far this hasnt led to any long term damage, but recently (it seems to have started ever since one night i updated windows on shutdown) When ever i turn my computer on in the morning, is has a bsod on me. Im never there when it happens, I useally turn it on and go take a shower, when i come back though ive noticed it says it recovered from and unexpected shut down.
I used blue screen veiwer and it says that its being caused by the dxgkrnl.sys and the bug check code is 0x00000116.

its really frustrating me, i hope its not a hardware issue but it seems like it is, my motherboard is pretty old (atleast 5 or 4 years) and i have it running the best video card and CPU it can run. Im not quite sure how to check my specs and im not sure if theres a certain format im supposed to post like in this forum.

I have looked around and a lot of the fixes have been updating their drivers but all mine are fully upgraded.

EDIT- I forgot to mention, after the blue screen occurs i can restart as much as i want. its useally occurs when i have the pc off for about 5 hours. I turn it on in the morning, get the bsod, then it works perfectly fine. then i turn it off and head to school. when i get home the same thing useally occurs. Im never there when it happens and it doesnt stop me from using my computer and gaming or browsing the internet. im just worried my computer is going to get worse.

Thanks in advance, Andrew

My PC has been very difficult to start, especially in the morning. I need to press the 'on' button like 15 to 20 times (each time nothing happens), until, suddenly, the 'on' light appears on the casing, and it goes through the usual procedure of booting up. I liken it to trying to light up a damp disposable lighter.

Once it's up and running, it's rock solid - no problems at all.

The motherboard, RAM, CPU and video card are about a year old. Thinking it might be the on switch on the PC casing (about 3-4 yrs old), I moved everything, including the 3-4 yr old power supply, into a new PC casing last year. At first, it booted up fine fine every time - so I thought it was the old casing. Now it's started acting up again.

I changed the power cord and the CMOS battery earlier, but no use.

Could it be the power supply? I'm thinking it's either that or the motherboard..

Anyone gone through something similar? Advice?

System Crashes Description
BSOD AT STARTUP. Whenever I do a "cold boot" (the computer has been shutdown at least three hours) there is a random blue screen stop either (a) just before the Welcome Screen or (b) less than two minutes after the desktop has loaded. At some rare cases, the system freezes before the BIOS post screen, and the motherboard LED:s indicate an issue with the memory.

The BSOD only and always occurs at cold boot. Otherwise, the computer is seemingly stable, no matter if I am gaming or surfing.

THE RAM GETS FRIED. Apart from the first week after the build, I have been running no more than 2 sticks of RAM simultaneously. Although I started out on SPD speeds, I have tinkered with RAM speeds to try to get a stable mode. I have never raised any voltages manually, and the DRAM voltage has never been set to above 1.65V (XMP).

Nevertheless, two out of the three sticks in the kit are now unusable due to visibly fried contacts. Both fried sticks have been running in the same slot (B1).

Attachments and Notes
Some Crash Dumps and other material for analysis is included in the attached file. Unfortunately, I have a Swedish install of Windows. The warnings included in the health report concerns the network settings (I have recently disabled all microsoft network cards and the homegroup services).

NOTE: I have swapped the PSU and video card with my three-year-old computer running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. The older computer has experienced... Read more

A:BSOD at Cold Boot Win 7 Pro x64

Crud!!! I lost the long post that I just made!!!

Oh well, here's the gist of it:

8 memory dumps from 12 May 2010 to the present (4 days)
5 different STOP errors, with 6 different causes blamed
Due to the number of different errors, this is most likely a hardware problem.

I suspect that there are issues with both the motherboard/memory and the D-Link device. To test this, please uninstall the D-Link software/drivers and remove the D-Link device from your system temporarily.

Then run Memtest on that one good stick in each slot (save the B1 slot for last).
Then run Memtest on that one good stick in the B1 slot (it may fry the stick - but we need to test that slot to make sure it's the issue).

If it's proven that the B1 slot is bad (or any other slot for that matter), you'll have to get a new motherboard (if it's still under warranty, contact the seller for an RMA authorization). There's no sense in using a motherboard with problems - as this may cause further problems in the future.

Once that problem is remedied, then we can work on the D-Link device. We have seen a lot of issues with USB network devices using Vista drivers on Windows 7 systems.

I, personally, recommend using an internal wifi card (rather than a USB device) - they are more reliable and more likely to be compatible with Win7.

So, please let us know if you've used Windows 7 drivers for you D-Link device.

Hi,

The BSODs started 4 months after purchase. I replaced RAM with new sticks, which did not do anything. Replaced them with other brand RAM and that still did not solve the issue. Replaced motherboard 2 times and then with an other brand and that still did not work. Reinstalling windows does not solve it.

Now I have different RAM and a different motherboard and the symptoms are still BSODs at cold boot startup: Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, Memory_management, Attempted_write_to_readonly_memory. When I replaced motherboard, I immediately got BSOD at startup even without windows 7 installed.

I have let my pc get checked and they said it was the motherboard although it did not solve the issue.

I am getting a BSOD when booting up first time on cold start, seems to be only happening that one time as when I restart the computer it boots up fine the next time. I caught a glimpse of the filename and seems to be the nvidia card. Though not sure of whats the cause.

Its been awhile since I have posted here, hello to all

gerry

A:BSOD on boot up from cold boot

Hi bullfights.

The BSOD is caused by the display driver, apparently; and a 0x3B is usually occurs by driver configuration.

Your installed version of the driver is not the latest. The latest one is 9.18.13.3221 and your one is 9.18.13.3182 (as per device manager, driver version, not forceware).

So you need to update it. But I would suggest you to first download the latest version. Then disconnect from internet. Then uninstall the present driver, all the components, and then reinstall the downloaded latest version.

Let us know the results.

Hello,
Last week 2 memory slots in my PC quite working. While trying to determine if it was the RAM or the slots (suppose memory controller is more correct) I Cleared CMOS, swapped memory modules & right about then the PC quite restarting. Click on restart & windows shuts down, monitor goes blank but the PSU never powers off. Before I would hear the PSU power cycle just before the PC restarted. At least I think it was the PSU, a mechanical restart with a fan. There's only one case FAN & the heatsink fan, but I don't think that's it. I suppose it could be the case fan.

It does however shutdown just fine. Click shutdown & Windows shuts down & powers the PC (PSU) off.

Since the memory slots were toast I purchased a new MB, that did correct the memory issue - all RAM is now accounted for in Windows. However the restart condition persists. I updated the BIOS, cleared CMOS again & removed/replaced the battery. I made triple sure that all connections are secure.

Power scheme is set to balanced & I have never enabled hibernation on this PC.
In the BIOS Remote Wakeup & Auto Power On are disabled. ACPI mode is S3 & AC recovery is OFF.
A little research on Shutdown vs. Restart indicates a Shutdown results in a Cold Boot whereas a Restart results in a Warm Boot:
For a shutdown and start the last thing is turning off power to the system board. When the system is turned on the CPU boots and passes control to the bios. For a restart the la... Read more

A:PC will Cold Boot but won't Warm boot?

Mate try this I think you have a PSU issue.
PSU- Jump Start

for a reference
PowerSupply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies as you will seethere is a +/- 5% variance that can make all the difference so 11.4v is way toolow and 12.6v way too high.

Plus remember correct bolts do not mean correct current (amps - in turn watts)

Now while you are reading the second ref in section 2 there is a Power_Good text now if you do not get any or very low volts at pin 8 (grey cable) then there is something wrong with the PSU because that lead tells the timer chip to start the machine if and only if the self test in the PSU comes up good.

Hi guys,

I am posting here in hope of help in solving this weird problem. First, let me start by saying that I am not a noob and I actually study Computer Engineering, but this problem has stumped me.

If the power cable is ever unplugged from the PSU, the next time it is plugged in, the PC will refuse to start up when the power button is pressed. If you press the power button 2 or 3 more times then the computer will automatically boot after 3 minutes. That's 3 minutes for the power LED to light up and the POST beep to be heard.

This problem will not happen if the power cable was NOT unplugged after the last shutdown.

Another related problem is that if the computer is on and someone sets it to sleep, then it will not wake properly. The fans wake up, power light becomes solid, but no display is seen on the screen.

OS: Vista 64bit
MB: Asus P5B Deluxe
CPU: C2D (can't remmember the model)
vid card: ATi 4870

Thanks,

First BSOD i've had with this hardware.

If someone could point me in the right direction as to what is causing this, I would be greatly appreciative.

This crash was probably caused by your Avastsvc.sys (part of your avast anti virus). If it doesnt happen again I would simply forget about it

If it does I would find a different AV app.

Since the actual errrors were memory related I would also download memtestx86 and run it for 5 passes to test .

Hi,

When I start my computer after its been turned off for a couple hours (from shutdown, power at wall still on) there is about a 10s delay before anything happens (no lights, fan doesn't spin, nothing.)

When I restart my computer or start after only being off for a few minutes its instant (fan lights, fan spinning, post single beep etc).

This has only been occurring for a few weeks and isn't consistent, sometimes it is instant from cold.

I'm experiencing no other issues, boot is extremely quick after post, no crashes or blue screens, etc.

Does any know what would cause this to be happening and how to fix it?
 

A:Cold boot 10s delay before post

My first thought would be the pw supply. Seasonic makes fine pw supplies however even Cadillacs sometimes fail.
Test your voltages under a load ie running prime95 or IBT [both free downloads] Post the results here along with temps while fully loaded.
