    Screen goes blank, then reboots after 15 secs.


    Hello all,

    I have this stability problem with my rig:

    Every few days, the screen goes blank but I can still hear background sounds, then after maybe 15 seconds, the computer reboots but the reboot process takes a few minutes instead of a few seconds as usual when that happens.

    This can happen anytime (playing WoW, browsing the web, or sitting idle).

    I have noticed that before the computer crashes, I have a dozen Event ID 4101 "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered"

    Then the really slow reboot comes from a critical Event ID 100 with extremely long BootUserProfileProcessingTime
    For example:

    EventData
    BootTsVersion 2
    BootStartTime 2016-10-01T22:42:36.683475900Z
    BootEndTime 2016-10-01T22:47:38.211820700Z

    SessionInitOtherDuration 2014
    WinLogonStartTimeMS 9193
    OtherLogonInitActivityDuration 189
    UserLogonWaitDuration 6461


    If someone could help me squash the bug, that would be great!

    Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 10 tutorial.
    Code:
    Event[5396]:
      Log Name: System
      Source: volmgr
      Date: 2016-10-01T18:42:38.292
      Event ID: 46
      Task: N/A
      Level: Error
      Opcode: N/A
      Keyword: Classic
      User: N/A
      User Name: N/A
      Computer: REDBOX
      Description: 
    Crash dump initialization failed!

    Please check your SSD for firmware updates.

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

    1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
    2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
      • Double click the executable to open it
      • Click on the button shown below




    If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window.


    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial for the installation part NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Minidump: configured, but I had a message that says that Windows cannot do a dump when the Virtual Memory is disabled. (Enabled Virtual Memory)

    SSD Firmware: already at the latest firmware

    Deamon Tools: Uninstalled
    SPTD: Was already uninstalled with the above

    DDU: Done, but when the system restarted, I had a slow boot like described in my first post.
    Nvidia Driver: Did ask you asked (Graphics driver + PhysX only) but now my Oculus Rift doesn't work anymore!!! ( I had to reinstall the driver with everything checked except Geforce Experience to make the Oculus Rift work again)

    I will report back in a week (or earlier if the system crashes again!)

    If the system is stable again then I would focus on other problems, that's what I'm doing with my system

    The rig crashed again last night (sitting idle) but now that I have re-enabled virtual memory, we now have a crash dump and a bugcheck 0x116 (VIDEO_TDR_ERROR).

    Here are the new logs:

    I don't understand.... I have already done this step exactly as you instructed (see reply #3), the only difference is that I need the 3D vision drivers installed, otherwise my Oculus Rift will not work at all.

    The 0x116 is a GPU driver reset problem crash (drivers didn't respond, reset didn't work, etc.), that and below is why I posted it again.

    It is necessary that you follow the instructions exactly, without exception for anything as it is not yet known if what you want to make an exception for causes problems or not.

    I think I nailed it down! This afternoon I had another crash while I was away with a 0x1a bug check. So I went ahead and did a memory test and it found errors. So I spent the rest of the day doing many memory tests with each ram sticks individually and 1 of them failed the test twice.

    I'll run my system for another week with only 16gb of ram and post again as solved (hopefully!) if there are no more crashes.

    Well, it looks like removing the faulty ram stick did not solve the bugcheck 0x116 problem
    I'm now at your mercy Axe0!
    I removed the nvidia drivers using DDU, redownloaded the nvidia drivers (nvidia has newer drivers now) and installed only Graphics Driver and PhysX modules with the clean install box checked.
