    BSOD even after Windows 10 reset, 0x000000e


    (Note: I've also posted my question to the microsoft forums because I'm really desperate at this point).

    Windows Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363

    Hello guys, I'm coming to you as my last resort. I have no idea what's wrong with my computer, and I don't know how to fix it. Ever since I upgraded to the newest Windows 10 build, I've been running into BSODs constantly. It's too late for me to revert back to my previous version of windows 10. A piece of this error is that while I'm using the PC, randomly I'll get a BSOD. The Stopcodes have varied, I've gotten:

    SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
    KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
    UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION
    CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

    And other codenames. What's consistent about them is that it says "Collecting data", but it never actually does that. The percentage hangs at 0% and then my computer will restart. Once restarted, I get a blue screen that tells me:

    "Your PC/Device needs to be repaired.

    The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.

    File:\WINDOWS\System32\winload.efi

    Error code: 0xc000000e

    You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media, contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer."

    This screen has 4 options. I press enter to try again and it doesn't do anything. I can't access Startup Settings. I can only go into the recovery environment or UEFI Firmware Settings.

    I've tried system restore and it hasn't worked. I've tried different cmds like "sfc /scannow" and it says there are no errors. Eventually I get to a point where I can "Continue into Windows 10" (from the Recovery Environment), and it usually boots like normal and then lets me into Windows 10 again, only for it to crash either shortly after or a few hours after, and then I'm back into the loop again. I got fed up of it earlier today and I decided to reset my pc, but I kept all of my files (because I can't afford to lose them). For a while, everything was working the way that it was supposed to and I started to reinstall my programs, only for me to eventually run into the BSOD again, despite this being a new install.

    I don't know what's going on and I'm really worried because I use this desktop for work and for fun. I should also mention that I built this myself in 2017, but I don't know if it's hardware related because I haven't changed the hardware since then and everything appears to be working fine. Please let me know what I should do, and I hope that I don't have to completely wipe everything because I can't afford to right now. Thanks in advance.

    I was able to get into my desktop between crashes (it's now having wifi problems) and I've attached the crash file too.

    Hello DownRoad and welcome to TenForums BSOD section

    The first thing I would try is to reduce the clock speed of your memory. Currently it is running at 2400MHz which is too fast for the spec of the processor you are using. The Intel i5-6600K is recommended to work with memory at a maximum speed of 2133MHz.

    Reduce the Memory clock speed in the BIOS settings and see if this makes a difference.

    Hi and thanks for the quick reply!

    I hadn't noticed this. I went into BIOS and switched it to 2133MHz. So far so good but I'm waiting if another crash happens.

    Hi DownRoad,

    Welcome to the TF BSOD forum.

    The logs displayed BSOD however there were no dump files.


    The opening post did not mention the use of tools to cause BSOD.
    The logs displayed the current use of Windows driver verifier.
    When was the tool started?
    Which reference was viewed to run the tool?

    What is the overclocking history?

    Turn off Windows driver verifier.
    The tool may be used later in the thread.


    1) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    4) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    5) sfc /scannow
    6) chkdsk /scan
    7) wmic recoveros set autoreboot = false
    8) wmic recoveros set DebugInfoType = 7
    9) wmic recoveros get autoreboot
    10) wmic recoveros get DebugInfoType
    11) bcdedit /enum {badmemory}

    12) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    13) Make sure that there is no over clocking while troubleshooting

    14) In the left lower corner search type: system or system control > open system control panel > on the left pane click advanced system settings

    a) > on the advanced tab under startup and recovery > click settings > post an image of the startup and recovery window into the thread

    b) > on the advanced tab under performance > click on settings > on the performance options window > click on the advanced tab > under virtual memory > click on change > post an image of the virtual memory window into the thread

    15) Run HD Tune (free version) (all drives)
    HD Tune website
    Post images into the thread for results on these tabs:
    a) Health
    b) Benchmark
    c) Full error scan


    16) Run Sea Tools for Windows
    long generic test
    Post an image of the test result into the thread
    SeaTools for Windows |
    Seagate

    How to use SeaTools for Windows | Seagate Support US

    17) The RAM is overclocked for the Intel CPU.
    Philc43 had commented on the overclock.
    Intel(R) Core™ i5-6600K Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz) Product Specifications
    DDR4-1866/2133
    Speed: 2400

    18) The BIOS is out of date (missed seven upgrades)

    You are welcome. I think this should be the answer.

    Do make sure you turn Driver Verifier off (as pointed out by zbook) because this will slow down you system and should only be used for short periods of testing (no more than 48hrs).

    @zbook,

    So after limiting my memory speed my desktop hasn't crashed yet, but I still went through all of these things in anticipation for a crash.

    I think I started the Driver Verifier tool yesterday, but I've since turned it off on your guys' recomendations.

    I used to overclock, but as of right now I haven't overclocked since at least last November.

    I'm going to update the BIOS now, but I've done all of the rest of the work that you've prescribed and I'm attaching the screenshots to this thread. Note that I technically have 3 drives (2 internal SSDs and 1 HDD attached via a 3.0USB drive), but the tools only let me check/test the SSDs. The Sandisk SSD is my boot drive.

    The CMD prompt info is below:

    Is the drive detected by disk management or Mini Tool?


    Open disk management > by default some columns are compressed > widen each Status and Volume > make sure the contents within the parenthesis are in full view and that none of the characters are cutoff > view disk 0 > widen this row as needed so that all of the characters are in full view > post an image into the thread

    @zbook @philc43 So I have bad news. In the middle of collecting data about my external drive (And yes, the computer does recognize it as a drive, but maybe because it's connected by a USB and not a SATA it's missing from the other applications?), I got another BSOD. It says

    CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

    It says the "We're just collecting some error info, then you can restart" but it's been stuck at 0% for 10 minutes now. This is after I did everything in @zbook 's initial post and I just finished updating the BIOS to the latest version.

    After the Bios update did you check the memory clock speeds were correct and not set too high again.

    1) Power off and on
    2) Upload a new V2 into the thread
    3) Plan to run overnight RAM testing

    4) For any BSOD:

    a) run the V2 log collector to collect new log files

    b) open file explorer> this PC > C: > in the right upper corner search for: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
    > if the file size is < 1.5 GB then zip > post a separate share link into the thread using one drive, drop box, or google drive


    5) Run Memtest86 version 8.3 (or newer version if available) for four passes.
    Repeat the test so that eight passes are performed.

    MemTest86 - Official Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

    Use a camera or smart phone camera to take pictures and post images into the thread.
    In case there are any problems uploading images use share links (one drive, drop box, or google drive)

    Memtest86 has a feature to produce a text report.
    Please post this in addition to the images.

    6) Make a new restore point:
