    BSOD "NMI_hardware_failure" when booting the pc

    I am a newbie, not so technical and seeks assiatnce. I have been having the BSOD problem when turning on my pc with "NIM_hardware_failure" error without an error code.
    This happens after the machine went into the windows logo but before starting up. I did not install any new software and/or hardware and the drivers seem to be fine/updated.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    The Event log has many, many errors like this:

    So I'd say you have a bad hard drive.

    Run HDTune to

    • check the health,
    • scan for errors, not quick scan but full scan
    • run a benchmark.

    You can also try the various options available with chkdsk.

    Also, trhere were no dumps with the zip file you uploaded. Are you running any programs to cleanup your hard drive, like CCleaner. If so, stop using it until this problem is resolved so we don't lose any dumps that are created.

    Rule 4
    No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc) - it is forum policy that no help shall be given to people who knowingly steal software or services.

    One of the main reasons for this is that the act of pirating the software will inevitably change the working of the software and make investigation and repair impossible. Please install a legitimate copy of the software and if you are still experiencing the issue we will be please to assist - No further assistance will be provided until we are satisfied that the software is genuine.

    Theres a tool which is used to bypass the activation of microsoft products. If you are sure you did not use a tool like this, maybe a friend or store tech did it without your knowledge.

    There are entries in the hosts.txt to bypass the activation of Adobe products.
