Windows 10 sometimes won't boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Well, there is a problem with my PC. Sometimes it won't boot, Windows seems to crash at spinning circles animation (they spin couple of times, freeze and after few seconds PC reboots). After 3 attempts it goes to automatic repair, which says it cannot repair it. Sometimes it boots fine the first time. There seems to be no rule behind it. When it runs there are no stability issues under load. No crashes, BSOD's, nothing.

 

Specs (kinda vintage, I know):

- OS: Windows 10 x64 (2004)

- PSU: Thermaltake Smart SE 530W

- MOBO: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4

- CPU: Intel i7 2600K (@stock for now, but he's a good boi, can do 4.8GHz on air easily :) )

- 4 sticks of DDR3 PC3-12800 4GB RAM

- GPU: Gigabyte GTX1070

- 240GB SSD by Samsung for system and 2TB Seagate drive for memes

 

What I've tried (on system drive):

- sfc /scannow

- dism (all possible configurations, never finds corruption in store)

- chkdsk

- disabling intel rapid storage/smart connect and Hyper-V in BIOS

- updating GPU drivers

 

Any ideas? Maybe someone faced similar problem?

Booting under UEFI or Legacy BIOS?

Does Memtest86 come clean?

UEFI.

Memtest86 + couple hours in Prime95 -  no stability problems.

Try booting Hiren's BootCD PE multiple times. If that shows no issues, I'd suspect the drive or installation.

Is the SMART data of your boot drive OK?
