Windows 10: BSOD on cold start up
BSOD on cold start up
The BSOD, that happens on a cold start up (when the computer has been turned off overnight) has been happening on random occasions ever since I built the computer. I've reinstalled windows, twice. I had thought it might be a hardware issue and have checked each stick of memory with memcheck for about 5 hours each - no errors. Overclocked my i7-6700K to 4.4Ghz and ran prime95 (only for a few minutes though) and no errors (although errors at 4.5Ghz but no BSOD). Back now to defaults.
I have recently reset the bios and thinking this may have resolved the problem, seemed to be running fine so I deleted previous dmp files.
Many thanks in advance.
Welcome to the 10forums and apologies for the delay.
Are you still in need of help?
No problem, there must plenty of requests for help. At the moment all seems ok. But these BSOD only occur on startup from cold... and might not see one for a few days then will get 2 or 3 on consecutive days. Did the dmp file show anything? I read on a forum that someone enabled secure boot and that seemed to solve the problem.

Before I do, windows is installed on a Samsung nvme m.2 SSD. Is it ok to run these test on that drive. Also got 2 HDDs for storage.
Ok, just read HD tune can be used on SSDs but not seatools.
SeaTools is specifically made for HDDs, though it doesn't support all HDD models. All other tests can be used on all storage types
Still at work. I'll test when I get home or tomorrow morning.
