    Critical_process_died


    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.

    What options do you have in the BIOS?

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Under bios setup there are 3 tabs: File, security and system configuration.
    These are the options at system config.

    1. Device configurations

    • Usb legacy support
    • parallel port mode (ecp, standard, bidirectional, epp)
    • fan always on while on AC power

    • max sata speed (3 or 6)
    • sata device mode( ide, ahci, raid)
    • ctrl i prompt
    • usb charging port
    • wake on usb
    • secondary battery fast charge
    • vtx
    • numlock on at boot
    • express card link speed (gen 1, gen 2)
    • smart card reader power setting( always on, if card is present)
    • deep sleep( off, on, auto)


    2. boot options

    • audio alerts during boot
    • custom logo
    • display diagnostic url
    • custom help and url messgage
    • require acknowledgment of battery errors
    • fast boot
    • cd-rom boot
    • sd boot
    • floppy boot
    • pxe internal nic boot
    • pxe internal ipv4 boot
    • pxe internal ipv6 boot
    • usb boot
    • upgrade bay hard drive boot
    • esata boot
    • hp application
    • customized boot
    • (unselecatable) secureboot config
    • boot mode(legacy, uefi hybrid, uefi native)



    3. built-in device options
    buttons, wifi, bluetooth, keyboard, backlight...


    4. port options
    enable/disable external ports.



    5. set security level
    Theres a ton of stuff in here examples:

    • Lan controller (change, view, hide)
    • hyperthreading (change, view, hide)
    • sata device mode (change, view, hide)


    6. restore defaults

    Please make sure your BIOS is loaded for optimal default settings.

    What does the bolt text mean?

    I suspected that, but it doesn't 100% completely make sence to me (doesn't matter actually)
