Q: Critical_process_died?

I am using X270.it has came with windows 10 preloaded.in the time of work its automatically restarting and shows a blue screen Stop code-"critical process died".please help me how to solve this?

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.)

A: Critical_process_died?

can you look in the event log to see what critical process has failed?

Hello. I just bought a laptop, and i installed some programmes. When i opened one of them, the screen turned out blue and said critical process died and then restart. What should i do? Please help meee. T-T Thanks.

Your English is just fine!

You have a MediaTek MT7118 WiMAX USB Card - Win7 didn't like these devices, so I suspect that Win8 won't like them either. Here's my rant about these devices:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

The worst case scenario is to uninstall it's software and physically remove the device from the system in order to test 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! :

mtkwmptv_x64.sys Wed Jan 13 21:02:23 2010 (4B4E7B2F)
I believe that this belongs to your MediaTek MT7118 WiMAX USB Card

I have a Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 and ever since I got it, I've been getting a Critical_Process_Died BSOD and nothing I've tried will fix it. I used to just reinstall the OS every few months, and then the problem would come back, and I'd do it all over again.  But now, reinstalling the OS has no effect and I keep getting the error, even on a clean OS install. SFC does not work. Safe Mode also crashes.  Repairing the OS does nothing. This is definitely a hardare issue and I feel ripped off by Lenovo because this has been going on since day one and now this is out of warranty. Any ideas? Thanks  Running Win 10 64 bit, but the issue also happens on Win 8.

Ok so this bsod started happening a few days ago after an automatic (midnight) update. When the pc tries to boot i get the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED error and automatic recovery doesn't work.

I have tried booting in safe mode (results are the same as normal boot), startup recovery (doesn't work).
I tried reinstalling and recovering windows, both with no success.

chkdsk found problems with the filesystem, but running with /f says: "Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected".

diskpart fails to clear readonly attributes on disk 0 (but when i list the attributes everything is NO, so I'm guessing it isn't in readonly)

I have cleared readonly attributes on all volumes and nothing has changed.

Not sure if I'm in the right forum or not, but I have Windows 8.1 and just before it restarted it said to look up "Critical_Process_Died.

I've changed my motherboard and activated Windows 10 which had been successfully running without any problem. Now, however, I've been getting sudden critical_process_died in 95 % of the time. So I ran sfc /scannow which said that it could not fix many files . I've tried to upload CBS.log but it is not been accepted here, I don't know why since .log files are supposed to be accepted.
So I ran DISM. It gave error 0x800f081F (source file not found). I've tried to find out a windows repair program, but the best one I got resets the system, that is, it kills all my dozens of installed programs. I will not go in that direction. Somehow the original motherboard crash killed all restore options.
I have an old win10 bot disk (dated 2015-11) which could help me if it worked, but it does not; it only takes me to the reset option.
I'm, amazed. Windows 10 does not have a plain repair drive?

The BSOD: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED occurred while playing Spider Solitaire, which is by itself not a critical process. A BSOD was previously posted for this system, but while the system was using an SSD drive. I've returned to the original HDD to avoid the SSD-related BSODs.

Your analysis is greatly appreciated.

My Dell XPS 15 9550 laptop was just sitting there and all of a sudden the desktop background turned black, although the desktop icons and taskbar were still visible. A few seconds later, the system crashed giving me a BSOD message of "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED". It attempted to send MS a report, but after about 5 minutes, the percent counter was still at zero so I assumed it had frozen solid. No dumps were created and nothing showed up in the Event logs. If you review the Event logs, you will notice a consistent error concerning "IntelCpHDCPSvc.exe" crashing. This occurs each time I boot my system and appeared to have no other effect on it. This error has been happening ever since I installed an update to the Intel HD Graphics 530 driver about 5 days ago. A couple of hours before the crash I installed an update to my Realtek High Definition Audio driver. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached the appropriate "Collector Tool" files.

Hey folks,

I have an Acer Aspire TC-605 desktop computer running Windows 10 Home (x64 edition). It was recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 (I've first bought that computer back in June 2015).

The desktop system features an dedicated AMD Radeon R7 200 GPU (graphics processing unit) and the desktop system itself has 8GB DDR3 RAM.

Whenever I started up my system and attempted to log in to the desktop, a blue screen suddenly popped up saying "Windows has stopped working". My computer then restarts.

Digging in towards the Event Viewer, I've looked at the one of the events written on the viewer. It contained the following (that had led me to the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED issue):

0x000000ef (0xffffe000ec3bb840, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

In the past, the folks at this board provided me a special tool for posting BSOD reports when I used to run Windows 7. For the purposes of running Windows 10, I've decided to perform that tool and uploaded all of the information that was compiled into a .zip file for you folks to analyze and review.

The issue that I'm suffering just happened today and I'm not if it will repeat again at some point in the future...

I've did an anti-malware/anti-spyware scan, but there was nothing found that caused the problem.

What can you suggest to me for this particular problem that I'm experiencing?




The bad thing about this BSOD error is that it could be just about anything critical to the operation of your computer: namely, your hard drive, your memory, or, if you’re especially unfortunate, your processor.
Start with updating your GPU driver Desktop
Diagnose the HDD, run Check Disk,
Go to Start/Search and type CMD, right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt, type chkdsk /R and press enter. Type a Y for Yes and restart your computer. Check Disk will go through 5 stages and it will take a while.
You can also download the ISO image for Memtest and burn it to CD using IMGBurn both in my signature or Use their own Auto Installer for USB
Remove all but one stick of RAM, boot off of the Memtest newly created Media and run the tests on each stick of RAM separately for at least 7 passes. If there are any errors in the lower pane (Red) that stick is bad and needs to be replaced.

Several times since Windows 10 has been updated (see attached file) I have received a "Critical_process_died" notification. Sometimes at startup & at least one time during normal browsing. Have talked with a local computer shop about various problems & he suggested a clean install. Attached is the dump file per your instructions.
Appreciate any suggestions.

I was on my laptop yesterday and it turned irresponsive, I waited for a few minutes and nothing seemed to happen, nothing would open so I did a force shutdown. When It was turning back on it came up with the BSOD and said it was collecting details for it. The error was CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, it was supposed to restart after collecting information, when it did it went to automatic repair, which couldn't solve anything, I tried running in safe mode to move all of my files and to find the error but that wouldn't work either.

I will probably end up formatting but I would like to save some of my files.

A:BSOD Critical_Process_Died

Ok an update on the situation, I was searching for a solution and someone suggested running in safe mode with command prompt, however safe mode doesn't seem to work(tried shift+f8 and troubleshooting>additional settings>safe mode with command prompt) but there is an option to run command prompt from that screen so I did and i did an sfc scan as suggested, the result said something on the lines of something was found corrupt and it was repaired, it then says restart for it to take affect, so i thought that would be the end, so I restarted and the BSOD came up again with the same result as earlier.

I have various BSOD Crashes. They occur during normal Browsing.

Firstly it was a "Unexpected Store Exception" in the help in another Forum at that time ( 2 weeks ago )

we managed to do a perfect SFC-Scan and a perfect DISM-Scan, which apparantly did not terminate the BSOD - Issue.

After the SFC and DISM - Scans the BSOD Crash did not show "Unexpected Store Exception" again.
It seems to remain at "Critical Process Died".

When I just restarted the Laptop, no Boot - Device was found, although I could select it in the BSOD - Start up.

I restarted again and the System runs smoothly. Dont know for how long.

Please help me!

My Windows 10 installation just corrupted recently and gave me the error "Critical_Process_Died". It just went BSOD and now, I cannot get into windows as it just gets stuck with the error repeatedly.
I was thinking of doing and sfc /scannow from within another windows installation (laptop) but I keep running into the error "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation". I also tried to use a flash drive W10 but, I got the same error as well. The command Iine I was using was:
"sfc /scannow /offbootdir=E:\ /offwindir=F:\Windows".
"E" being the reserved partition and "F" being the busted W10 installation location.
Is there a way around this that I can run another windows 10 install to repair the corrupted install? Also do I have the proper command line?
I was also thinking about running DISM but I don't know how to use it for an external windows install.
Misc things I tried was auto repair, chkdsk, and safe mode but, none of them repaired it. Also, I cannot get into the desktop even when invoking safe mode.
I'm up for other solutions if you have any other solutions.
Thanks for your time.

A:Windows 10 BSOD "Critical_Process_Died"

What are your reasons for wanting to get into the Desktop?
- fixing it completely may not be possible
- are you concerned about recovering your data
- if you recover your data, would you be satisfied with reinstalling Windows "clean"?
Here's my canned speech about repairs (I'm not familiar with how to run SFC/DISM from a command prompt in Startup Repair):

here's some recovery/restore options (in this order):
- System Restore to a point before this started happening.
- DISM/SFC repair
     Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.
    From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx
    You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.
- RESET using the "Keep My Files" option (W8 calls this a REFRESH; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)
- Repair install of the OS (Thanks to FreeBooter!):

Over the past few weeks, I've been facing many, many blue screens a day. They're mostly KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERRORs, but occasionally a CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED will pop up.
I've tried many of the solutions suggested online - I've updated everything I could, I've system restored, I've refreshed my system, I've run CHKDSK C: /r /f, I've run SFC /scannow. I've also tried running my antivirus program, but to no avail.

Does anyone have any idea? I would really appreciate anyone's help; I really need my laptop right now (and it's my only computer) and I am a little nervous about this!

Thank you kindly


Hi, some reasons for blue screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
Download BlueScreenView
Download link at the bottom of the page.

Download > install.
Once it has scanned > Click on Edit > Select All > File > Save Selected Item
It will open in Notepad - or save to Notepad > Copy > Paste and Post the last 5 minidump files from the scan.

Check this link first
Run a Mem Test.
Scroll down to 'Download (Pre-built & ISOs)'
'Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)'

Download the ISO file from one of the links above to your desktop.
Then burn the ISO to a Cd.
Start the Pc using the Cd and run the memory test overnight or for at least 8 passes.

It is best to run a full scan on individual Ram sticks if you can.
Or run the test but if any errors are shown - then remove all sticks of Ram and test each Ram stick one at a time.

I’ve read many topics about this message but couldn’t find a similar case to mine.
My laptop randomly shows the BSOD with "critical process died" message.
        When it trying to restart, after this message, it seems like the HDD is not detected, because it tries to boot from other drives and sometimes shows this message “A disk read error occurred, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart”
When I go to the BIOS, most of the time I find that the HDD is not detected (but sometimes it’s detected and shown in the BIOS but the laptop doesn’t restart)
I tried loading the default settings in BIOS, but unsuccessfully.
      I took the drive and plugged it to another computer via a USB adapter as an external drive; it works properly!
After some time (it varies from an hour to 3 or 4 hours) the laptop runs normally again and there is no specific reason for this behaviour!!.
This happens randomly with no previous sign, nearly once or twice a week.
I am really confused, because i don’t know what to do, so please help me.
I bought the laptop since 5 months, and this problem started to occur since more than one month.
Laptop: LENOVO G500
System: Windows 8.1 64x

A:CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED message windows 8.1

Hi batman If the laptop is still on the guarantee, I would suggest you to return it for another one. You don't deserve to use a laptop that have issues when you buy it if it's still on the guarantee. If it's not possible for you to do so, we'll troubleshoot these BSODs and see what we can learn on them.

I have just got a new laptop, the Dell Inspiron 15, and I have been installing a few programs on it etc. A couple of times it closed down with an error that said DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(Smb_driver_Intel.sys). It then proceeded to restart.

However, it has done just this a few hours ago, and when loading up it came up with another BSOD that said CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. Then it proceeds to reboot itself and have the same error!

I cannot, for the life of me, find a way to boot the computer! Any help please?

Thanks in advance!


A:CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED and windows 8 won't boot!

What USB devices do you have connected?

Disconnect them all

If no reboot, force your way into safemode with networking

You can wail on the [F8] button while its booting, if it moves too fast then [F2] while it booting then exit bios then wail on [F8] again

Once in safemode with networking, download your chipset drivers and uninstall your video drivers

reboot, if all ok, then install all windows updates before any video drivers

If all not ok, then we need to disable all startup programs

I am a technical support engineer having a look at a U300S for a client, who got the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED BSOD.  I have:Backed up all her data Done tests with Lenovo Diagnostics - SSD is fine, hardware is fine.Tried to Reset the systemTried to do a factory default settings  restore with One Key Recovery, both of these said there was a problem, although it couldn't tell me what it was! So I have decided to reinstall.From the license.rtf file in C:\Windows\System32, looked up with a Rescue CD, the operating system is 6.3, which according to a forum is Windows 8.1, but the properties on oskrnl32, and Version, says it is W10, so it must have been upgraded.The confusion lies in the sticker underneath, which contains a product key for W7! I have asked both my client and Lenovo, they are not sure!Because the keys are stored in UEFI these days, why would it have a product key on the sticker?Which OS do you think I should install?

Dell Venue 7140, Core-M, 4GB, 128GB

I'm having major problems with any of the RS2 Insider builds. I've been an Insider since pre-RTM and never had this type of issue. After installing the build I end up with an endless "Critical_Process_Died" blue-screen loop. Sometimes this will happen immediately after the install, other times after updating a driver. I've tried all of the usual tricks (system restore, sfc, dism, safe-mode, etc with no luck. What's interesting is that the boot process is actually working; it's something that happens right at the end of the boot that's causing the fault.

I've been down this road several times and have never been able to recover. Always re-installed the public release. Does anyone know what could be causing this or how to fix it? Yes, I know I could stop installing the Insider builds but feel like this is fixable.

For a few weeks now I have been getting blue screen errors while gaming, searching he web, or while doing absolutely nothing.  I have searched countless forums yet still haven't found a solution.  The blue screen error is: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED.  I downloaded bluescreenview and it says the cause is from ntoskrnl.exe.  Also I don't know if this is important or not but the cause address is ntoskrnl.exe+142760 and im running windows 10.  I am sick and tired of this blue screen crap and I just want to go back to having a normal functioning computer.  Please help...

I have had an on-going problem with my computer...

Computer Specs:
Asus Sabertooth Z77
120 GB SSD (OS / A Few Apps / No Page File)
600 WD Raptor (Main Progam Drive / Page File)
Defrag Turned Off
Windows Defender turned off through group policy
16 GB RAM (1600 MHz)
950 Watt PSU

The problem I have been having is the computer just slowly starts locking up and explorer windows won't close or open and the computer just generally hangs. Task manager won't open either and after a few seconds it will eventually BSOD with "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED". This happens at random. Sometimes it will go several hours and the next time, it happens at boot. Blue screen view gives driver ntoskrnl.exe as the culprit. I really don't know what I am reading here but this has been an on-going problem. I even did a clean install to see if it would fix it. This problem was there before I installed the SSD as well. I have tried sfc /scannow but it returns that there are 1 problems but it can't be fixed. I tried all the solutions to fix the windows store but nothing worked. Something to do with opencl.dll. I've read somewhere that nvidia drivers could the cause of this.

When it self-restarts after it's collected it's information, 9 times out of 10, the SSD will disappear from the BIOS unless I manually shut it off and then turn it back on.

I keep getting a bsod error that says "critical_process_died". I don't know too much about bsod errors so I'm not really sure on how to fix this. I've ran the sfc.exe/scannow command and it said it found corrupted files, but couldn't fix them. I then ran the dism...restore health command and that didn't work at all either. If anyone can help me with this I'd really appreciate it, thanks. I've included my dump files here as well. I tried to do a system restore to see if that would work, but every time I tried to restore it would cause this bsod error before it could finish.

Is there any other steps I can take, to help resolve this issue? It's very frustrating having my computer crash at random times throughout the day...

Will someone please help me with these constant bsod crashes..... I can't do a system restore, boot into safe mode or into advanced startup because they also cause my critical process died bsod error... this is EXTREMELY frustrating and I have no clue on what I can do from here to fix this huge problem.........

A:BSOD ERROR - Critical_Process_Died

Seems like you have tried everything to solve the issue but have you tried to update/download proper Drivers for your Devices?

Do this if you have not done it already.
Goto Device manager and look for any yellow triangle if you can find... If you find one then you will need to update that driver if update is available or simply uninstall and click on check for hardware changes. It will automatically install the drivers.
Most of the time Reinstalling drivers work.

Hi, I just built a gaming rig and I have Windows 8 64bit installed. After stress testing my system to ensure it was stable and running well, I jumped into a few games on Steam. During anything else, like Unigine Heaven or any other benchmarking software, it runs like a dream. However, while gaming, my screen locks up and my sound starts stuttering over time, sometimes recovering back into the game, others not at all, and often resulting in a Critical Process Died BSOD with a reference to ntoskrnl.exe. I'm a bit perplexed at this issue, as this is all brand new, high end hardware on a 2-day install of Windows.

I am currently running at stock speeds on an i5 4670K, although I was stable at 4.5 to 4.6GHz before setting back to defaults in BIOS to see if I could narrow down the problem.

Well just got my new XPS 15 9550 with the 4K display, 256GB SSD and 960m GPU. Now as I use it for web surfing, etc. I have been getting these BSOD's where the display would freeze for about 10 or so seconds and BSOD displaying the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED error. I have reinstalled Windows 10 with default BIOS settings where the SATA controller is set to RAID. All drivers from dell have been installed and the error still shows its face multiple times a day. I have even tried running the latest nVidia driver (364.51) rather then the stock one (358.94) with the same issues. I'm running out of ideas why this is happening. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tom.

I've had my laptop about 8 months. It's a Toshiba Satellite S55-A5257, Intel I7, 8GB Ram.

It's occasionally crashed with a Kernal_Data_Page_error, however, recently it frequently crashes with a Critical_Process_Died Error (can happen multiple times in an hour).

I've tried two full system refreshes. Both of them seemed to temporarily solve the problem, but it started a week or two later again.

I've attached the Dump files.

Please help,

Is there any particular reason that you haven't updated to Win8.1 (it's free). I ask in case you had troubles with it. DO NOT install it now - wait until we've stabilized the system.

Only 56 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 160 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Memory dumps are suggestive of an error in the disk hardware. Please run these free hardware diagnostics (starting with the hard drive tests): Hardware Diagnostics
If having difficulties running the bootable tests, try running Seagate SeaTools for Windows (from within Windows).

If you haven't made recovery media yet, now is the time to try (before the hard drive dies). Otherwise you'll have to purchase it from Toshiba (link here: Order Recovery Discs (USA) )

- Checked driver updates.
- Reinstalled system.
What I suspect and hope it is not:

- SSD hardware malfunction.
- Windows needs a good beating.
I have included the Dxdiag.text file and the CBS.log file.

A:Critical_process_died sfc corrupted, no idea, Halp

The best thing to do would be to return it to wherever you purchased it and have them fix or replace it. That is what I would do. A new computer should not have these kinds of problems.

If you're not willing to do that then start by removing half of your ram. Should leave you with 4GB. Test and see what happens. If still same problems then swap ram and test more. If still same problem then it's not rem (memory).

Look in C:\Windows\minidump. If there are dumps (.dmp files) there, zip up the last 5 or so then upload the zip file here in a reply to this thread.

About a week ago, noticed that my wireless Keyboard and mouse were acting up. Media Controls went first. It's a new-ish Logitech keyboard. Tried removing the original keyboard (coffee ruined it) using Change PC settings and each time got a BAD_POOL_CALLER.

Swapped out for a USB keyboard and problem seemed to go away.

Before I could get to 8.1, I got a CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

Main Issue/General
When I boot my computer, it gets to the screen at which I see the Windows 8 Logo and a load indicator spins below it. About 3 spins in, the spin freezes and I get a BSOD - the BSOD is not fit to my monitors resolution as well, I cannot see a part of it, but I can make out "Critical_Process_Died" at least. It then restarts and loops this.I am decently skilled when it comes to repairing computers so I did make some attempts my self, so I tried to fix it and failed miserably and wasted 30 hours of my life.
Attempts to Fix
This loops infinitely so I had no choice but to fix it. So at first I was unable to get it to boot, so what I did was put my Windows 8 Install disc in, and tried to do System Restore.
System Restore has failed entirely. I tried Repairing/Refreshing it with all the options available, none of them will work. When trying to Refresh the drive the reason it does not work is it tells me "Disk is Locked, please Unlock disk and try again" I DO NOT WANT TO FORMAT AND LOSE ALL OF MY INFORMATION - I want to fix the operating system since I have access to the drive. Note my situation is a bit complex.

Current Situation
I am currently on the computer, on a dual boot partition I created after this happened so I could fix it, it is running Windows 8 Pro, I have not updated it since I am using is for recovery purposes. So I am unsure of if the diagnostic tools will give you appropriate information, since I am not logged on to that oper... Read more

A:BSOD - Critical_Process_Died, can't boot, limited options

Since you're unable to boot into the problem OS (and because the current OS isn't updated) the reports aren't a whole lot of use to us at this point.

Please go to the problem installation and locate the memory dump files for that installation. They'll be in the Windows\Minidump directory. Zip them up and then upload them with your next post.

We'll run the memory dumps and will come up with a plan to try and fix this OS (if possible).
As you have access to your hard drive, I'd suggest backing up your data now - this will keep the data safe in case something goes wrong while you're attempting to fix it.

In most cases you just copy the "Users" folder to another drive and that will preserve your data.
You'll notice that the AppData folder in each profile is very large. This contains (among other things) some internet browser bookmarks and some email program data files. If that's not needed, you can save some space by not copying the AppData folders over.

Hi guys, im brand new to this forum and although i see my self as good with computers i am currently at a dead end with this.... and just before people ask, It bsod's and sticks at 0% and creates no minidump file.

Sorry if this has been talked about before, but after a lot of searching on the WWW, i believe this to be a strange case.

So, I keep getting random BSOD's in windows 8 and 8.1 (after update). With the Error message CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED & sometimes KERNAL_INPAGE_ERROR.

This is what i have done so far to attempt to fix the problem (to no avail)

Attempted to update to 8.1 from 8, (failed during) - so i reinstalled 8 from the disc and completely wiped my system HDD, Then updated to 8.1 before adding any new programs and it updated great. then a day later the BSOD's started again randomly (same error).

So i scan all HDD's (i have 5) for malware, virus's, spyware, everything. in safe mode, with the network cables unplugged. Scanned by USB drive. (i read this in my PC pro mag) - no bad stuff found, (still errors)

I started to unplug HDD's for a day at a time to see if they were erroring, even though Chkdisc and error checking said they were all fine. i tried replacing sata cables also. (same error).

So then i try taking out RAM cards 1 by 1, at 1 a day. (i have 4x 2GB), after removing 1 so down to 6GB, it stopped BSOD for a day and i thought woohoo, then it bsod'ed.

So any help will be amazing because i am pulling my hair out.

I am having BSOD's again. I am getting the above error on the blue screen. It's worse now though because it never makes it past the "collecting data" it just freezes at 0%.

After I shut it down and restart it manually, it gives me a black screen with white letters only and says that it couldn't read boot device. I need to turn it off and on multiple times before it recognizes the hard drive. I think one time it worked when I unplugged everything (mouse, external cooling fan, phone, power cord).
