  1. I’d only use Sleep mode if I had HDD, as I’d understand that cold booting into Windows can take some time and if I had some important apps opened or some work that I needed to do but need to go to sleep at night.
  2. Unlikely but it could be a GPU driver problem? Did you try re-installing GPU drivers?
  3. I would recommend installing chipset drivers, gpu drivers, network drivers, audio drivers from the motherboard manufacturer site, from there, manually search each driver up (for example if we're installing audio driver for onboard audio, and you've installed it from the motherboard manufacturer's website, search it up on google to see if you can find the latest one.) I had that same BSOD many times, and for me it was always driver incompatibility. Always avoid driver updater software if you use them.
  4. So this is kind of destroying my brain cells at the moment. The problem is this: My computer crashes, BSOD shows up, however it's always stuck at 0% Completed, no matter if I changed what type of dump it is, like Kernel Memory Dump, Complete Memory Dump, Active Memory Dump, IT WOULD NOT RESTART (very few times it does, quick restart after showing the BSOD for a splitsecond), so I have to manually restart it (my PC case has a small reset button.). Now, in some case, after pressing the reset button, the PC will shut down, then boot back up, in most cases it would restart as normal, without shutting down (you can tell it shuts down because the fans dies out and all the LED fades out then booms back in). Windows loaded as normal, going to event viewer states the following: Dump file creation failed due to error during dump creation. Event ID: 161 (Always the same). Now, I do overclock, and yes there were some BSODs related to that and putting XMP profile on when CPU overclocking (oddly most time it works without issue, few times when playing intense poorly optimised games like Black Ops 4 will initiate crashes related to RAM like memory_management). My Pagefile is set on a WHOOPING 64GB right now. You ask why? It's to be sure it ain't Pagefile issue. So I had another BSOD, this time with the following: IRQL_UNEXPECTED_VALUE Caused By: ndis.sys? Apparently it is a windows network driver. ^This might have been fixed, not sure yet. But crash dump creating issue hasn't been fixed. I swapped motherboard from the old gigabyte z97 gaming 3 (regardless, it was going to be swapped out due to it being busted, to msi z97 gaming 5, I swapped out the 4tb sshd which got busted, then used 8tb hdd which turned out to be SMR *facepalm*, now I'm using Samsung Evo 860 1TB SSD, using the latest firmware for the SSD. But still not a single difference it made to the problem. The reason why I need the crash dumps is because if there's a BSOD that I don't know what could be causing it, crash dumps helps a lot. This problem has persisted since the build of this PC till now. My PC Specs: Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.8GHz (w/ H100i Liquid Cooler) GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 32GB G-Skill & Corsair Vengeance 2400MHz DDR3 (Currently running 1600MHz) MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard AeroCool X99 Predator Gold 1000w PSU (Heard some bad things about this PSU) Samsung Evo 860 1TB Sound Blaster Z NXZT Hue+ Things I've tried: -SFC /Scannow - Nothing has been violated. -CHKDSK - Drive is healthy. -DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth - Successful but no help to the issue. -Changing dump type from all options like Automatic Memory Dump, Kernel Memory Dump, etc. -Changing the pagefile size from system managed to 64gb. -Set BIOS to default and used WhoCrashed to purposely initiate a BSOD.
  5. Exactly what I did, as Microsoft Support suggested to do that but it made no difference except this time around the screen doesn't flash before the BSOD appears. Maybe it's my sound card (Sound Blaster Z) isn't compatible with the latest build or is trying to mess the sound card up, as I heard that the newer build causes issues with Intel HD audio. But then a question comes into my mind to as why did I receive this update if a hardware isn't compatible with the latest Windows 10 build. Hmmm... might have to try that but as far as I know, my CPU, RAM & GPU (even reset them all back to default clocks) is all fine (except CPU still have thermal issues when being utilised more, but isn't as much as it was before). Yes, there is, however it doesn't detect anything wrong.
  6. Hmmm.... did no effect. The odd thing about this is the first BSOD that happens when the working on update stay stuck at 30%, then 43% on the second reboot then it undo any changes to the computer.
  7. Sorry for the long wait for my reply. I left my PC on overnight, it seemed to pass without any errors. When I went back to windows 10 settings app, I see the update once again started to download again . Yeah I’m guessing it’s windows 10 update, as I never had this issue before with any of these feature updates. And yes I was planning on going back to Windows 7 as with Windows 10 when my PC sleeps or hibernate it’ll doesn’t actually goes into any of those modes, everything still get powered, and I cannot wake the PC up till I press the power button.
  8. Alright I’ll do memtest right now and I forgot to mention I did use Seatools to test the hard drives and it came clean.
  9. So the new build for windows 10 appeared to be downloading in the settings app, I wanted to install it so I can just continue with using my computer as normal without being interrupted. Everything went fine till the PC restarted, it displayed working on updates which went slow and actually progressed but till a certain point. When it reaches 30% it’ll crash but it’ll instantly turn off on its own without me seeing what appeared. When I turn my pc back on it goes back to the working on updates screen again, only this time it goes to 43% before crashing but this time it remains on the screen without it going off. There are two BSODs error strings appeared: Driver_unloaded_without_cancelling_pending_operations caused by wpprecorder.sys page_fault_in_nonpaged_area caused by nwifi.sys Microsoft support is BS they did everything what I did, any new person who I need support about this issue from Microsoft always want remote access even when I clean installed Windows as the previous guy suggested me to, which is absolutely ridiculous. Otherwise they don’t even help. So I’m stuck with this update continuously downloading, using the previous build works perfectly without any issues at all, when I go back to the desktop I get a error message saying installation failed at first_boot phase and gives me an error code of 0xC1900101 - 0x30018. So what I can do regarding with this irritating issue? My Specs: Intel Core i7 4790K 4.4GHz 32GB Corsair vengeance & g-skull 2400mhz GTX 1080 g1 gaming msi z79 gaming 5 latest bios ver. What I tried: -Clean installing (didn’t work except it doesn’t display any BSOD error string like memory_management) -SFC didn’t find any issues with any system files. -Reset BIOS settings and removed any form of OC. -I used seatools to see if the hard drives (I have two in total) is showing signs of failure but it came out clean.
  10. Sorry for triple posting, the new motherboard works, it doesn’t have the issue that I was experiencing but this mobo has 2 issues. 1. The usb 3.0 cable that allows front USB ports to work doesn’t fit, the pins seems to not fit into it, 2. When turning on the PC, both iGPU and GTX 1080 doesn’t seem to receive any video output on the screen, but the computer remains on. EDIT: It FINALLY works, I did this to fix this issue with the no signal/video output. 1. Turn off PC 2. Switch the PSU off 3. Remove RAM sticks 4. Turn on the PSU switch but leave the PC off for 10 minutes 5. Insert all RAM sticks 6. Turn on PC then BOOM! It works! Now come to think of it, maybe the BIOS was corrupted from the old mobo... but it had DualBIOS feature, or the CPU connector was damaged. Thanks for all the help guys!
  11. Hey guys, I got a new mobo today thankfully with debug code embedded onto it, I'm going to put the CPU, PSU cables, cpu cooler & RAM to see if it's working or giving an error code. I'm using MSI Z97 Gaming 5 mobo
  12. Just an update; I've decided to buy MSI Z97 Gaming 5 mobo, I sent an email on Monday but I didn't get any reply from them EDIT: I think imo it's the motherboard, I remember when putting the RAM sticks at 2400MHz (Both XMP & manual timings) the PC just turns off, then turns on again instead of staying on, but restarting, then a BIOS message appeared saying that there was an unexpected boot failure and that optimised defaults settings were applied. This happened couple of months ago, I didn't do anything with the motherboard, it just one day the BIOS error message appeared, but sometimes eventually when it does boot into Windows, BSOD occurs randomly, or it just hangs, till I put the memory frequency at 2200MHz which sorted it out.
  13. Could be your GPU, see if clean installing the drivers do your GPU helps. Download DDU from here: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html When downloaded, extract to desktop then run into safe mode, open DDU, uninstall the graphics driver. Once that’s done you should reboot which should automatically reboot you to normal state, Windows most likely will download and install your GPU drivers automatically. See if playing a game causes a bsod again.
  14. Xenia is an Xbox 360 Emulator but just started a year ago I guess, although the progress is REALLY SLOW, RPCS3 is PS3 emulator, which seems to be doing really great. At this time PCSX2 (PS2 Emulator) only supports running disc PS2 games off from your Optical drive (if the disc of cause is in your optical drive). Plus I think Xbox 360 + Xbox One games are encrypted, you can't read the contents off from Windows unless I think you need a Blu-ray drive which needs to be flashed.
  15. I still got my PS2 games that I usually shove in to my PC to play them on the emulators (even today). Which is another good thing to have optical drives.
