    WIN10 - Event Tracing Fatal Error


    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if this is the right thread but I've read this error has been associated with BSOD; if not please move it and sorry.

    My mates computer is saying when it's turned on 'Event Tracing Fatal Error'. I've tried all the options to try and load it the windows up but everything I try it just says the same thing. Be it in safe mode, or anything. I'm not sure what caused this and he has no idea what happened previously. Is there anything I can do to find out that I can post here to help you guys or am I just going to have to re-image it?

    P.S: My mate has all his personal/company files on the laptop so if I do re-image with the option to keep my documents will it keep all the documents and just delete the programs or is it worth just taking it to a professional?

    Thanks.

    Your mate needs to backup any data he doesn't want to lose, that's the only way to be safe. Since there are company files there he should be doing regular backups anyway.

    I recommend using Macrium Reflect Free to do a image backups to an external USB hard drive (1TB or larger) $60 US.

    Also, oplease follow these instructions: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    How can anything be backed up if we have no access to the computer?

    Download Macrium to a different computer and install it. Start it and create the Macrium Rescue disc or flash drive.
    Boot the rescue disc or flash drive and create the image backup of the hard drive in the failing computer.

    If he just want files and folders, see here: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk from KYHI

    It allows you access to a non-working system - and provides a visual means to repair the system You would have to download the ISO and then burn it to USB or CD to create a bootable WinPE disk. Boot the WEinPE disc or flash drive and you can then access files and on the hard drive of the failing computer.
