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.)

I am seeing issues sometimes when I close my lid and come back to my computer later. It restarts instead of resuming from where I left off. It's really annoying to lose my work setup. I had 93% battery left last time so it's not an issue with too low of a battery. Are there any known issues with resuming? Most of the times it works, but sometimes I open my computer and it starts from scratch without any of my previous windows or work there. Are there any recommended settings to check? I need to minimize this from happening. I opened the computer this morning (~7 AM) and it restarted instead of resumed. I'm pasting some Event Viewer logs here that seem relevant.

Hi all, After changing some settings in the BIOS (desactivation of some devices: WIFI, Camera, Ethernet, Fingerprint reader...) for troubleshooting a linux issue I had. The laptop now bootloops right after the Lenovo logo with the folowing message displayed for barely a second: "Configuration changed - Restart the system"...It's absolutely impossible to get to the BIOS, I can get to the boot menu via the F12 Key but any option I choose (BIOS, Diagnostics...) gets immediately the same message and it restarts.I got the laptop less than a month ago, it's my first Lenovo. I have to say, my confidence in the brand is not super high right now.Please help me figure this out!

See subject.  Ever since the BIOS upgrade, the dock no longer crashes.  Two days running now with no problems; prior to the upgrade it would crash routinely when connecting via USB-C.  I had to employ the unsavoury workaround of connecting the laptop to a charger and connecting it to the dock via the USB-A port using the USB-A to USB-C adaptor supplied.  Now I'm connecting via USB-C cable only. In fact, I'd given up on using the dock at all and had it just sitting there.  I decided to give it another go after reading that BIOS v1.19 fixed instances of BSODs occuring when connected to an external monitor (which I did experience now and again when connecting to an external monitor via HDMI i.e. not via dock).    Dock Type : 40AFX1E Type : 20MF

Hello, I've been using Thinkpad X1 Extreme for the past 1.5 months. And now speakers(or only right one I believe) started having an issue with crackled/noise sound on high frequencies. It's almost unusable to listen something with speakers because of how painfull it to the ears.  Is there anything possible to do with it to fix it? Or replace internal speaker. Recording with sound:https://www.dropbox.com/s/tjqzczipq45xyh1/video_2019-07-29_15-03-27.mp4?dl=0

Please help!

I'm at a loss as to what to try next. My system recently started performing unexpected shutdowns (BSOD reboots) seemingly at random, and always when under load.

First noticed when doing Handbrake rips to .m4v files. Sometimes generating a 3GB 720p file would go normally, then doing a 1.2GB 480p rip would case a reboot.

Tried the Windows memory tests -- always passes OK.

Tried the PassMark BurnIn Test 7.0 Standard with default settings and got a reboot within 15 minutes.

Have been monitoring temps via HWMonitor and nothing unusual -- all temps are OK.

Overclocking is all ASUS defaults. CPU-Z reports CPU at 3.34 GHz with 0.946 to 1.2 core voltage. Memory shows DRAM freq. of 800MHz, 9-9-9-27, and NB freq. of 3.3358GHz

Very few hours on this machine (I use this box infrequently -- intended mostly for video editing and After Effects work):

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate retail - clean install less than 6 months ago
24GB RAM -- Windows memory tests always end OK
i7 Bloomfield
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
Corsair Gold EX850 supply
Booting from 250GB RAID 1
Data on 1.4GB RAID 10

All drivers are up-to-date. Security Essentials runs in GB. Also regularly use WinASO, CCleaner and MalwareBytes

I'm attaching the contents of the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder as per instructions.

Thanks!

A:1st unexpected restart

Well, I don't know what the code means, but if you think you're having a memory issue then you might give Memtest86+ a try. You'll have to burn the ISO to a blank CD, and then reboot your computer with the burned CD inside. If you do not receive any red error messages at the bottom half of the video screen, you should allow the program to make seven complete passes (usually over night) . If you do receive red error messages at the bottom of the screen you can stop the program because you'll likely need to replace your memory. Sometimes a broken motherboard can cause the program to find memory faults when there are none. If the computer reboots or freezes while this program is running, you may have something more then just memory issues.

When I got up this morning I found that my system had restarted itself. I thought it was because of an update. I didn't find anything to indicate an update had been installed.

I decided to check the system event logs to see if there was anything there. There was. Critical error, Event 41. This is power related. I have the BIOS setting for a power interruption set to "Stay Off." However, this was not external.

This is the second time since I installed Windows 10. Windows 7 never did this. Both times I was running a number crunching console application which makes heavy use of the GPU. The CPU drops to around 1.5 GHz when there is no load and this process doesn't use it.

So, I am wondering what the deal is. There is no way to monitor the internal output of the PSU. I can monitor the input line voltage/amperage going into the PSU with a device I have. The input load only rises 20 watts when I am running this process. In a normal transformer system, wattage is a constant. However, a PSU is probably a different story.

I am looking for ideas as to where to start searching for an issue which might cause this.

This happens to me about twice a week. My computer will just automatically restart, and when it comes back up, I get a message that says this:

Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown. Microsoft Windows detected a possible device failure.

The driver for the display device was unable to complte a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver update.

Please tell Microsoft about this.

The display driver for Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller seems to be responsible for the system instability.

Then you can choose to either "Send Error Report", or "Don't Send".

This doesn't happen when I have a lot of things running, or anything. I might only have 1-2 windows open, and it will still happen. I don't know what's causing it......anyone have any suggestions???? Thanks for any help you can give me!!!!!

A:Unexpected Restart - HELP!

Make sure all your drivers are up-to-date especially the video.
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df/Product_Filter.asp?ProductID=798

Also, for future reference and troubleshooting.
First you need to get the machine to stop restarting on errors so that you can get a BSOD and error message.
Go to system properties (right click MyComputer > properties) > Advanced tab > under startup and recovery click settings > under System failure make sure "Write an event to the system log" is checked AND that "Automatically restart" is UNchecked. Click "OK" and reboot.

When you get your next BSOD, write down the entire STOP message.
You can post it here for help and/or check it at this resource.

A:Unexpected Restart

Hello joshescue18 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

For this type of problem it could prove to be any number of things such as a failing power supply getting pulled down from a weak cap, the cpu is getting a bit too warm during a gaming session, a drive is showing signs of wear, or if this may be a bug in the game if this is a mod you downloaded by chance from the moddb.com site for Steam?

I tend to suspect it could hardware related however for seeing it cause a full restart over simply freezing up solid on you which would be more typical with mods from the site there as well as with anything Steam driven! For this type of problem where you have provided the information from the Event Viewer I can point you to the appropiate Forum: BSOD Crashes and Debugging however. That will let the crash specialists here at TenF have a go at it!

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to view my post.

I just inserted a stick of Samsung DDR400 PC3200 RAM today and also a new 80 GB WD 7200 IDE HD. I restarted the PC after I installed the RAM and viewed the POST results and I was able to detect the memory.

I then installed the new Hard Drive as a Secondary, restarted and before it was able to go into the XP login screen, it restarted. I was able to go into windows after the first restart and once I logged in, it gave me this message:


BCCode : 1000000a BCP1 : CFDFF120 BCP2 : 0000001C BCP3 : 00000001
BCP4 : 804E7861 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

Does anybody know what these error codes mean? It may be hardware related. I have restarted since and have not had any problems.

In the future, will I experience any unexpected shutdowns?

Thanks!

When it comes back up it asks you if you want to start windows normally. I have downloaded core temp it never gets above 45. I updated my bios, and did a scan for viruses with malwarebytes and it didn't find anything. I checked for windows updates but it doesn't need any. Before it was doing it 3 or 4 times an hour. Since I have updated some stuff it does it about once every 30 to 45 minutes. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Thanks for the help.

Hello, I'm undergoing an issue with my computer, Windows 8.1 OS, and I wanted to get a second opinion before I opt to buy new hardware. Currently I think the issue lays with my Video/Graphics Card.
 
I was playing Diablo 3 and sat idly for about a minute when my monitor went blank and didn't show anything on the screen for a while. I have my computer hooked up via VGA cable to a samsung monitor (secondary) and via HDMI cable for my television (main). I had made no changes to any hardware components to this computer before. I had tried to restart the computer multiple times by power shutting and unplugging the power source. Unfortunately this didn't help and my computer isn't showing up on either monitor. I made sure all cables were connected properly and also tried different cables to see if it might be a faulty line. To no avail the computer will not display on either of the monitors. I am assuming that my graphics card was unable to handle Diablo 3 (not sure why since I've played it countless times before) and that I should get a new graphics card to fix the issue. I don't want to spend my money without having to do so otherwise (college student on a budget), and I wanted to see if anyone else had come across this issue before and steps you took to resolve your issue.
 
Thank you for your help

Hi all,
I am using winxp sp2, ie 7,but I regulary find that systenm sutsdown and restarts unexpectedly,I have scanned for virus,malware,spyware, all clean any answers ?

A:Unexpected Shutdown Restart

In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. An alternative is to turn off the automatic reboot feature so you can actually see the error code/STOP Message (which is also known as the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)).

To change the recovery settings and Disable Automatic Rebooting, right-click on My Computer and select Properties > Advanced tab. Under "Startup and Recovery", click on the "Settings" button and go to "System failure". Make sure that "Write an event to the system log" is checked and that "Automatically restart" is unchecked. Click "OK" and reboot for the changes to take effect.

This will not cure your problem but instead of crashing and restarting you will get a blue diagnostic screen with information displayed that will allow you to better trace your problem. Next time your computer crashes copy down the entire error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here.

I purchased an X1 Extreme (4K) a few months ago. I have run into a few issues and was hoping I could get some advice. For reference, I have observed these issues across multiple different Windows versions, GeForce driver versions, and Lenovo BiOS versions. I am happy to answer any follow-up questions in the comments. 1.When I have hybrid graphics enabled, I have observed significant stutter when scrolling in applications such as Google Chrome, Spotify, and more, especially when opening PDFs in Chrome. Turning off hybrid graphics resolves fixes this, but I was wondering if there was another option I had other than compromising my battery life by disabling hybrid graphics.2.When I keep the TrackPoint enabled, it occasionally begins moving the cursor on its own and keeps going for a few seconds, with no apparent way to regain control until it stops. While I can fix this by just turning off the TrackPoint, I enjoy using it and would like to know if there is a different solution to this issue. Thank you in advance!

A greeting to the community.Can someone tell me if the Samsung 970 Pro m.2 PCIe NVMe 1 Tb SSD to be installed on the second slot is compatible with X1 Extreme?I ask because a Samsung P951 SSD caused a blue screen and did not start the PCThank you all

A:Installing a second SSD on The ThinkPad X1 Extreme

docet,I assume the BSOD issue could be caused by RAID settings. In this case both drives must be the same type and have the same capacity.

 My new X1 Extreme hangs every few days. It locks up HARD, so that the only way to restart is to hold the power button down until it turns off.I've updated all the drivers, but one:The U630 Intel video driver will not install. It complains that it can't install on this operating system (Windows 10). Has anyone else had this problem & found a solution? (more concerned about the lock-ups than the Intel driver) I also updated the BIOS recently, but that didn't help.

Hi everyone, I've just add a RAM module (ballistix sport lt bls16g4s26bfsd) to my X1 Extreme laptop and I have a 'problem' with the frequency of the RAM.Its a 2666 Mhz capable RAM module but it shows as a 2400 Mhz in the task manager.I've read that I have to use xmp profile in the Bios to set the frequency of the RAM module but I can't see option for that in the Bios..Any idea on how to set the frequency of the RAMat 2666 Mhz ? Many Thanks Narek

On my new Thinkpad X1 Extreme, I can't activate Bitlocker "automatic mode" as it should be with Windows 10 Pro 1809.I have a fully operational TPM 2.0: But as shown in system information, it's due to "Un-allowed DMA capable bus/devices(s) detected": With Vantage, I made a full update of the system, so I belive BIOS and everything is up to date. Is there a way to correct what Windows thinks is a DMA threat ? Somethink else to update ? Thank you.

I think this is a simple question but no amount of research I have done in the forums has provided a clear explanation....is the Active Pen 2 just the next generation of the Thinkpad Pen Pro or is something else going on here. Trying to figure out which pen to spec with a couple of X1 Extreme's and I just want to confirm that the Active Pen 2 would be the latest and greatest??

Getting all the possible BSOD errors on my NEW (replaced) X1 Extreme. That's disgusting considering I've paid around 3000 for the top configuration. I had this as a replacement because the previous one had screen issues, WiFi card non working etc  I'm totally sending this in for refund this time and I'm probably going for a different brand this time!

I have a thinkpad X1 Extreme with the i78850h, 32gb ram and 1tb storage(Samsung MZVLB1T0HALR-000lL7). I'm thinking about purchasing the Samsung 970 Evo 2tb pcie nvme sdd to replace the 1tb the system came with, but I'm wondering if 1tb is the maximum the system will recognize or will it be able to recognize a 2tb ssd? Thank you, Clay

A:Unexpected Shut Down and Restart frequently

Probably a hardware issue. BCCode 116 is typicly GPU issues. Download the latest gpu drivers for your model. Reset clock settings if you are overclocking. Also, for good measure, run MemTest to check if you have memory issues.

Yesterday my computer froze and restarted itself, for what reason I am not sure (I had a lot going on at the time, it could have been anything). Now, when I try to boot up, I get a BSOD with a

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF7489872, 0xF6D69598, 0xF6D69294)

SCSIPORT.SYS - Address F7489872 base at F7485000

After booting in safe mode I replaced the specified driver with the one from my laptop, with the same result, so I presume the problem is not with the driver. I'm able to boot up in safe mode and safe mode with command prompt, but not safe mode with networking, suggesting to me that the issue is with my network controller.

Any idea what's up?

Hi there,
I had help here from "pancake" a couple of weeks back and he managed to clear my rig of malware etc. but now I am getting crashes and error messages quite a few times every day. I am not for one moment suggesting that it has anything to do with the repair job as it is no way connected to that at all.

I am running windows XP service pack 2 on an AMD Athlon 1800+; 80GB HD; 512MB RAM rig.

My machine just out of the blue decides to shut down and restart and on restart I get a message saying that it recovered from a serious error. When I send the error report to Microsoft the reply says that the fault is with my anti virus software. I have Avast and it is set to update regularly and does so every day periodically, if missed I take in updates manually.

My Event Viewer, under "Antivirus" in Administrative Tools shows that I have -Event ID 90- source Avast with the following message:
Internal error has occurred in module aswar scan function failed!, function A000010E.

Under "System" in Event Viewer I get a warning of Event ID 51 with the following message:
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.
Also under "System" I have Event ID 7 with this message:
The device, \Device\Harddisk1\D, has a bad block.


The machine seems to run OK until I put a CD Rom in my Rom drive and that is when it decides to restart.

Any help would be very much obliged.
All the best
weewend

A:unexpected restart and serious error message

Hi weewend !

Problem is caused by a bad cluster on the drive. I'm not 100% sure but I guess \Device\Harddisk1\D refers to drive D:. Is it a secondary hard drive ?

Go to start => run and type chkdsk D: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer and the scan will run at startup.

Would be a good idea to run the manufacturer's diagnostic utility on the drive, what's its brand and model ?

I just bought a Thinkpad X1 Extreme 4k, and I'm looking for a portable monitor to expand screen space for work while traveling.  Does anyone have any suggestions on a portable monitor?  I was looking at the Asus Zenscreen MB16AC, but was wondering if there would be a drastic difference in screen display?  I assume with this monitor I wouldn't need any other devices (I could plug the USB-C directly into the Thinkpad and that would be the power source). Thanks in advance!
