Critical Process Died

Q: Critical Process Died

I have a desktop build (on my profile) That a ran an older version of Win 7. I decided to up grade to Win 10. The download seemed to be OK and then I started to get the first page, then log in page and then a Critical Process Died, we need to collect information then we will restart page. It goes to 100% then restarts and the whole process starts again. I cannot get the start button and the Mobo is UEFI.
I don't know what the critical process is. I have tried to reinstall Win 7 with no luck. I have been to several other forums and this seems to be a big problem.
Anybody know what to do? MS is not a good source, one person recorded a call from an MS tech who wanted money to fix the problem...like extortion...

Preferred Solution: Critical Process Died

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, again.

I bought this laptop 2 days ago, and yesterday I was thinking about installing Windows 7 or 8, I ended up installing Windows 8, eventhough I don't like it, I installed a bunch of those programs that make it look like Windows 7, and everything was fine, I installed a bunch more software from my old computer and I was just downloading a couple games over-night so I could test how good it really is during today, there was no problem yesterday, at all, and I made it auto-shutdown when the downloads were completed.

Today I start the computer and it starts scanning the disk, I'm like: "Brand new laptop, should be fine", nope, stopped at like 10% (can't be sure) and restarted, when it restarted it went into this blue screen with a "" and saying something like this: "Look for help with this report: "Critical Process Died"".

I researched on the problem and looks like no one is sure about it, some say it's a HD problem, and others say it's something to do with Avast! (which I did install).

One thing is for sure, I won't be keeping Windows 8 aftet this ._. .

Honestly you may want to copy/paste this post to the win 8 forum.

It's largely the same crowd as here but you're more likely to get the guys with actual first hand experience using win 8 there.

My computer won't start up at all (even in safe mode), it constantly restarts with a BSoD saying, "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED" I can't do anything to fix it. I have spent the last hours searching for a solution but nothing is helping as I can't get to my desktop. Every startup attempt just crashes and is really frustrating me. Please help.

Hello guys!
All right?

I set up a new computer recently, I performed a clean installation of Windows 10 (Original), but I have had some BSOD's from time to time, sometimes a 7 or 8 during startup itself, sometimes while running OS without be running anything heavy or different than I usually do normally.

Today it happened. Restarted socinho and then appeared some BSOD's windows before getting up correctly.

I've tried passing the SFC / SCANNOW, but did not solve the problem.

Attached is the minidump today:

Important Note: The only components that did not realize was upgrade my HD's (2x500TB Seagate / Samsung) + (1x1TB Seagate) and source (C3Tech 500W).

Hello guys, I have an Alienware x51 and it's been working great for me for ages until I tried to start it up last week. I got a blue screen and an error cod 2000-0511 and a message saying critical process has died. So I had a quick look online and someone suggested doing "eSPA" and seeing what devices fail. After doing this I've found that my Sys fan is not rotating and fails. But upon inspecting my x51 it doesn't seem to have one. I did get this PC second hand but it's been working absolutely fine for a year when I got it. Anyone got any suggestions or tips on what I should do it would be really helpful.

Cheers Luke.

Hi Guys

I need help. As computers go I am 7 out of 10 a far as knowledge goes so not completely dumb. However, in the last week my computer as far as I am aware has not done any updating apart fro Kaspersky updates. I run windows 8 and for some reason I have had this message Critical process Died and my desktop has completely changed. When windows tries to boot it takes for ever, then once logged in I get 'preparing windows' When I eventually get to a screen it says I am logged in only with a temporary profile and anything I add will be lost when I turn it of. My desktop is totally different?? Its totally useless as it is, I have tried to boot with boot disk nothing happens, I have tried to update windows updates, many drivers all are up to date, I thus think its not HD corruption as I can see files, I can surf etc..once its up and running. so not hardware is it? Any ideas what I can try?

If you want log files please explain what you need and how and I will try and get them to you asap.

Again thanks in advance for any help

A:Critical Process Died

For starters:





At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).



Be sure that you run the malware scans in case something has slipped by your Kaspersky.
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (even though you're not reporting BSOD's): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Hello people,

I sure hope someone can help me, because I've spent days on this and I'm very frustrated. I have done lots of searching, and it seems like others with this problem have not found answers either. Or maybe I'm a bad searcher, which I'm not ruling out. My Toshiba laptop with Windows 8 won't run unless it's in Safe Mode. I don't know exactly how or when it started, but it completely freezes shortly after boot. Exactly when it freezes varies, but it's usually within the first 5 minutes. And by freezing, I mean it's 100% nonfunctional. The only way to shut down is by removing the battery, so now I just keep it out.

At this point I won't list all the things I've tried, or tell you all about my computer and OS. I will be more than happy to find any information you may need to help solve this riddle. For now though, I'd like to just tell you the error codes that have come up, with the hope that someone is familiar wit... Read more

Meanwhile, please try following.
Following will give an indication of software or hardware problems, I normally get it from the files but then still advice to try a clean boot as this crash usually is caused by something that is present in the boot process.


Diagnostics Test

 Clean boot

Please try the following:
Open taskmanager
Go to the tab startupdisable everythingSearch msconfig and open it
Go to the tab servicesCheck 'hide microsoft services'Uncheck all other servicesClick apply and click okReboot if asked
See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.
If the problem still persist, try booting in safe mode and see if the problem still persist

Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Hey, as who ever read this all ready know, I got a BSOD issue. I have a "critical process died" error whenever I start my computer. I have tried starting the computer in safe mode without any success and I have also tried to reinstall windows 10, but under the installation I get a massages saying somethinig went wrong, no changes was made and I will be kicked back. So as it is now, I have no idea what I am suppose to do. And I really dont wanna wipe my SSD to fix this if it is anotherway, cause I have some videos and pictures and some other personal stuff that I really wanna keep.
Another think that could be wurf saying is that I did do a windows 10 install some hours before this issue happend. I did the reinstall cause of a problem with a freezing. What happend was that the computer froze, and I just pressed the power button until the computer turned off. Then I started the computer as normal. When I came to my desktop starting to open programms, all the programs I open froze. I couldn't press the start button or anything. So I decided I should reinstall windows. And after the reinstall, everything semed fine. I starting to download my different programs from the web. And at the end, I installed my driver for my gpu. I restarted the pc, and there it was. The BSOS, aka "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED" error. So if any of u have any idea what I can do to fix this, I will be more then happy!
Btw, if you need more information, just ask and I will fix it !

1.Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.

Okay so I was using IMVU, Firefox, skype and Utorrent and all of a sudden my Firefox became unresponsive, and a few seconds later I was greeted with the BSOD with the error "Critical Process Died". It had happened earlier in the day as well right after I logged into my PC, so obviously this alerted me, especially because it wasnt even 5 hours after the first time it happened (though I generally consider two BSODs in one day to be alarming.) I looked up the error, even though this isnt the first time Ive encountered it but it happens at least once every 3-4months, sometimes I go longer than that though. Well anyway, I looked it up and someone suggested to boot into safe mode with command prompt and use the command "sfc /scannow" so I did and when it was done it told me that there were some corrupt files and that it couldnt fix all of them. Im wondering as to why that is and also wanted someone to analyze my CBS log because I have pretty much no clue what its saying.

Hi, I've been wrestling with this problem for last 2 days and I don't seem to be able to find an answer anywhere hence I'm posting here.

Automatic Repair - doesn't work. txt file in srt folder says the OS version is not compatible even if I use the Windows 10 usb.2. chkdsk /f /r - it fixed a bunch of things, there seemed to be a lot of problems but now it says that there is no problems and no further action is required.3.

Hey guys I'm here because there is a really strange issue going on with my desktop. I've been encountering BSOD Critical_process_died twice in 2 days. What is making me scratch my head is that this issue occur when there is a loud humming noise in my tower/cpu (what ever you call it). Tried searching the source of the noise but it doesn't seem to be the cpu fan or the gpu fan. Also this loud humming noise happens randomly and when it does, my computer starts to hang/lags before the BSOD takes place. Besides that, after a couple of restarts the loud humming noise seems to disappear and the computer works fine again. I do hope someone can help me out or give any ideas as to why there is this strange humming noise and how to fix it.

Hello Everyone!

Recently, my computer started freezing up at startup. It BSODs with the error in the title before making it to the login screen. Up to this point, I have run chkdsk /r /x which took two days and reported no errors and have attempted to run SFC /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=e:\windows\ which gave me the "windows resource protection could not start the repair service". I don't know how to get the scan to work and have already tried to manually start the trustedinstaller service.

The system is Windows 8.1 on a 2tb raid array (mirror)

A:BSOD Critical Process Died

Hi Mrk3767 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I apologize for the late reply but there aren't many people who analyze the BSODs. Anyways, could you please follow the instructions over here and post your latest generated SF Diagnostic ZIP File?

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

If you are not able to get through the normal Windows, try running it through safe mode.

Let me know how it goes ^_^.

Recently while using the internet my computer experienced a BSOD which listed the Critical Process Died as the error. Before this happened my computer kept popping up with a message I believe was saying that the display adapter driver crashed and then was recovered. It should also be mentioned that I recently upgraded my system with a new graphics card, after my old one died, and with a new case. That was my first time ever doing something like that, so I wouldn't be surprised if that could be a problem.

Well 2 days ago i got critical process died error screen, so the main problem is i cant get in my desktop. I also cant get in safe mode because it also gets the error

The error occured when i was recovering my system to a day before but instead of completing or idk what, i got the error and it keeps looping.

I cannot enter the desktop so i cant send dumpfiles or use softwares.

I also put win 8 on cd and usb i even made a windows xp cd but nothing works. Its like my pc cant recognize the usb or the cd on startup. I also changed
My boot order but nothing works.

I also gotta say the pc is like 1 year old.

Here is a video i made showing the problem and the specs are in the description.

A:BSOD Critical Process Died

Hi Justrandomk & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

According to the video, it seems to BSOD when the Windows is loading up the files. Did you make the Windows 8 BOOTABLE so that it could be recognized correctly?

As soon as the computer starts up, start pressing F8 real fast so that you get the option of Safe mode. What options do you get there? Do you see an option of "Last Known Good Configuration"? If so, then see if you are able to use that option.

Let me know how it goes ^_^

In the last two weeks my laptop has started intermittently crashing with no clear pattern. I used SFC to replace a corrupted file from an .iso, but I'm still getting crashes and can't make sense of the error codes. I had a secondary HD die on me last month (it had been overheating and crashing the machine while it was running Windows 7), but that was replaced. The primary drive is a 120GB Intel SSD. If some of your could take a look at my .zip file of the dumps I'd appreciate it.NAEARLE-PC-Mon_01_11_2016_222455_85.zip

I have been having issues with my computer since the day one. When I powered up the computer for the first time Polish (Machine was set to have Polish language for somewhat reason) BSOD with message MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION greeted me. I restarted the computer and everything seemed to be fine. However, an hour later another BSOD with message saying CRITICAL PROCESS DIED was displayed. I updated the bios and re-installed Windows to make sure this is not a software related issue. That did not help. I am still getting BSOD's with MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION, CRITICAL PROCESS DIED or UNEXPECTED STORE EXCEPTION. The progress counter stays at 0% and I waited for two hours for it to load. I have noticed that one occasion when errors occur are when I plug in my machine for charging. But, it can also throw an error with nothing specific going on. I ran Lenovo diagnostics tool(Check the attachment) everything seems to be fine. I contacted the seller (they claim to be Lenovo Platinum PC Parter) and they offered to send the laptop for diagnostics. They were not able to find the issue and as a consequence of that I had to pay for the shipping and diagnostics and the problem still remains. I contacted the seller one more time and they offered me to send the laptop for diagnostics again. I asked them to replace the unit, but they refuse to do it because computer "works fine". At the end of the day I have a computer that I cannot use and I have no idea how to solve this problem.

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 Critical Process Died

Welcome to the forum.
 
Sorry to hear about this experience. This should not happen with a new system.
 
From what you have described this system did not work out of the box. It is not your job to debug new PCs. It seems to me that you should contact Lenovo in Lithuania, explain your experience with this Platinum PC Parter and request a new system.

Hi all

I recently installed a new ssd into my laptop and installed a fresh installation of windows 10 onto it. When it started up after the install and reached the screen where you setup a user and password the computer froze and I got the message "Critical Process Died". It then did its thing collecting info and restarted and I managed to get into windows. I thought it may have fixed it but then when I started to load up files and software I kept getting the error screen again.

Now I have done another fresh install on windows on the drive and the same thing happened, Right at the user setup screen the error message appeared again.


I have checked the ssd with sfc scannow but it didn't find any errors.

Could someone help me out as I need the laptop for work on Monday!


Thanks in advance

Hello All

While attempting a system restore (back to a week ago) on 8.1 I've encountered a Critical Process Died

When I try to access System Restore in 'Advanced Options' or 'Refresh your PC' I need to enter my password... but receive a message "The password is incorrect. Try again."

The password I'm using IS correct.

Tried the obvious (caps lock, keyboard layout) and no go.

I'd really appreciate any advice on where to go from here...

Extra info:
- 8.1was installed via update... no disc.
- 'Restore' takes me to the logo screen (stuck there)
- 'Restart' in 'Advanced Options' loops back to the "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC", with a choice of Shut Down or Advanced Options. Log file: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt
- Computer is an Acer Aspire V5-571P

A:Critical Process Died - won't accept password

Forgot to add... I'm definitely an administrator.

Hi,

I recently bought a new computer (3 weeks ago). The specs are as follows:





PSU: Corsair RM850X 850W
CPU: i5 -6400
Motherboard: Asus B150M-C
Ram: Crucial DDR4 2133Mhz 16gb (2x8gb)
GPU: Zotac Geforce GTX 970 4GB
SSD: Corsair SSD Force Series LE 240GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
'OS: Windows 10 home



The bluescreen happens quite randomly (or seemingly so). I might be playing wow or browsing youtube..or just browsing email. However, the message is always the same "Critical process died".

So far I have tested the following:
- memtest86+ - 10 passes, no errors
- BurnInTest - no errors and no overheating
- Furmark - ran it for 15-20 mins until the GPU went to like 85C at which point I decided to back off.
- Heaven Benchmark - same as Furmark
- Corsair Toolbox and SSD Life - the SSD was reported as being healthy
- hot cpu tester - no errors found

I must admit..I am quite lost as to what can possibly be the problem here. I did some performance tests with Geekbench3 and UserBenchmark. Both of those tests went pretty well, and I didn't see any parts underperforming. Edit: oh and yes, all drivers are up to date, BIOS is up to date and windows is up to date.

I have attached the BSOD-related zip as per the BSOD-posting guide. Hope that one of you might be able to clue me in here.

Hello, raj402. Sounds like a hardware problem to me if you fresh installed and still having problems? Yes? Do you overclock to cause heat problems? How old is it? Does the case need to be cleaned of dust? Did you run memory and HD tests?

Hi all,I have a serious issue with my T570. After several minutes of usage and sometimes during the boot I have a BSOD with the error code "Critical Process Died".I run Lenovo Diagnostic Tool, and all is fine. I formatted the PC, reinstalled widows, and installed all the new drivers and the BSOD continues. The BSOD is not happening when I have the T570 connected to the Docking Station with an external monitor. Maybe is it a fault of the graphic driver? As I told you, I first re-instlled all the drivers, then formatted the PC but the problem is still here. Any solutions? The issue is serious because I can't use the pc without the Docking Station.

Hi all,

I've been having problems recently with my laptop (Samsung 7 series) freezing. I then get a pop up saying "windows has stopped working", and it either unfreeze after a few minutes or I need to force close it.

This happened again yesterday, and wouldn't unfreeze so I force turned it off. Upon restarting, I got a BSOD with the message "critical_process_died", and the laptop restarted itself, only to BSOD again. Now when I turn it on it goes straight into disk repair for C:, saying it is scanning for and repairing errors. However, even after running overnight it never progressed beyond 9% on this, and now I cannot exit the loop without force closing the laptop - but when I reboot it goes straight back into disk checking.

Obviously I have no clue what has caused this. A recent AVG scan was clean, and I cannot recall an update that happened yesterday. Unfortunately. Unfortunately I cannot load up the laptop to even check anything. Hopefully this is a software issue and I can get it fixed at a tech store, but I'm worried it could be a hardware problem (Internet suggested there was some memory corruption?). Any help would be very much appreciated, I'm a bit panicked about it as I rely on my laptop for all my work!

Thanks in advance..

Memtest came back good. No errors. Also thought I should mention temps are just fine, nothing going above 50C.

(I was running 8.1 before the reinstall) So randomly about a week ago my computer started to bsod out of nowhere saying Critical Prcoess died. Then I started getting Kernal data inpage error. I, of course, googled the issue and there seems to be no solid fix for them. After some fiddlig I seemed to make the bsods stop (could have been luck) and then I was only getting hard locks. No bsod, but everything, including the cursor, was frozen. No ctrl alt del could fix it, it was stuck and required a hard reset. Some thought it was registry errors, others thought it was hardware.



I think I have ruled out software after a reinstall, and still having the issue.


If anyone has any insight to this issue, any input would be great thanks! I've pretty much figured it's something hardware, but I just can't figure out what it is.
