    Fresh install of Windows 10 64bit and now getting BSOD.


    So I upgraded my system. Bought a new motherboard, CPU, CPU Cooler, RAM, PSU & SSD.

    Installed windows 10, worked fine for the first week.

    Now when I start my PC in the morning or from when I get in from work, I get a BSOD when the PC Boots first time.

    When it restarts, it loads windows fine without issues.

    I've never had a BSOD happen while in the O/S, however did once have a funky issue where once it loaded my desktop, it started to flicker, as if Explorer.exe was continuously restarting (On this occasion, I held the hard reset button in and once restarted was fine)

    Not sure cause...

    I am running:

    Windows 10 64bit,
    Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
    MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
    Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
    750watt Corsair PSU
    (The only 'old' thing is my GFX Card, which I bought in 2012).

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hi RedArrow,

    Welcome to the 10forums and I am sorry for the delay.

    I've been a little busy past few days as you might notice when looking at other threads.

    Please turn off fast startup and let me know how it goes :)

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Yes, I understand you are busy and no worries regarding the delay- After all, you are helping people for free and in your own time.

    I have done as you asked, and updated my 'PC Spec'.

    I will restart, and post back soon with regards to how my pc is doing after changing the boot from fast.

    Many thanks. :)

    Hi Axe0,

    Many thanks for your help with my issue.

    It seems, since my last post- My issue has been fixed! I disabled the fastboot as suggested, and haven't had a single BSOD since doing so!

    I'm over joyed, that something so annoying was fixed as simply as that!

    Still curious as to why it'd cause the BSOD's though.. considering, Microsoft have it enabled by default?

    Anyhow, just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your help! It's very appreciated!

    Marking this as solved now!

    It is turned on by default yes, the reason is a faster boot.
    However, sometimes it doesn't save the image of Windows and drivers proper what causes problems.
    Fast startup (aka: hiberboot, hybrid boot, or hybrid shutdown) is turned on by default in Windows and is a setting that helps your PC start up faster after shutdown. Even faster than hibernate. Windows does this by saving an image of the Windows kernel and loaded drivers to the hiberfile (C:\hiberfil.sys) upon shutdown so when you start your PC again, Windows simply loads the hiberfile (C:\hiberfil.sys) into memory to resume your PC instead of restarting it.
    In case you missed it, below is an image displaying how it works.

    Glad to hear your problem is solved :)
