    What is a good amount of space to dedicate to system restore? Is ten gigs enough? That would only be 1% according to this menu.

    Also I apologize, I went to do some reading for university that is due tonight at 12.

    It is not necessary to run ccleaner.

    There were no dump files for the 8 BSOD.
    Ccleaner can clean dump files so this step is to prevent deletion when the files are properly created.


    The computer has no restore points and no backup image.

    Create a new restore point:
    Create System Restore Point in Windows 10

    Create a backup image using Macrium:

    Read these links on Windows driver verifier: (do not use the tool until it is communicated in the thread)

    So im confused. I think this section (on right) says that I need an outside drive (external or removable storage). So I have this relatively large external portable hard drive that I use for all my art work (am a i designer). Two things:

    1. This is the only drive I have that I can use for something like this, so if I use it, am i risking losing anything on the disk?
    2. Reflect says that the disk is full and unformatted, that is for sure not the case (see below). What is going on??? Can I still select that disk as the target save location?

    Macrium is widely used in Ten Forums.
    See if you can post larger images (the side by side above).
    The E: drive was not in the disk management image.
    And it was not present when V2 or diskpart were ran.

    Once you have a reliable backup image you can use the minimum space for restore points.
    System restore may be needed when using Windows driver verifier.
    So create several restore points over the next few days before using the tool.

    Please post a new disk management image with it attached.

    Yea the E: drive is not a part of this pc, it is a drive i carry back and forth to school and work with me. It has nothing to do with this pc which is why it was not attached earlier.

    The trouble shooters where not really helpful at all. Here are the screen shots.

    It had me do a few things but then this was the last screen it showed me.

    Its a desktop computer plugged into the wall so being on high performance should not be an issue? The only recommended action was to set a sleep timer.

    This is a good time to check E: too with all of the current tools:
    HD Sentinel, HD Tune, Sea Tools, and chkdsk.
    The chkdsk switches will be added to run later in the thread.
    Run the chkdsk commands overnight on hard drives.

    The Bluetooth driver may have been the cause of the BSOD.

    Ok I will run those tools on my portable drive when we get this stuff all resolved! (good idea thanks for the suggestion)



    I dont understand this comment "The chkdsk switches will be added to run later in the thread." Unless you are just meaning that you are going to at some point later give instruction to run something else?




    "Run the chkdsk commands overnight on hard drives." I dont see instructions here on how to do this in our posts here, but a quick google search reveals this: chkdsk Guide for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 Is that the correct process you want me to run? It looks like i can only do one at a time, is this correct?


    And the blutooth drivers have been giving me issues so much since i got this pc, I tried to resolve them for so long but could not figure it out so i gave up.

    The logs had many entries related to bluetooth problems.
    The BSOD were recent.
    The troubleshooter corrected a driver problem and misbehaving drivers are common causes of BSOD.

    The tools are checking the drive hardware.
    Once all of the drive hardware has been tested the drive file system will be tested with chkdsk /r /v

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    chkdsk /r /v
    This may take hours to run so plan to run overnight.
    Run on all drives using the syntax: chkdsk /r /v C: or chkdsk /r /v D: changing the drive letter to the applicable drive.

    C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk /r /v
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock current drive.

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Type: Y
    reboot


    Use the information in this link to find the chkdsk report in the event viewer. Copy and paste into notepad > save to desktop > post into the thread using one drive or drop box share link:
    Read Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer in Windows 10 Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials
    Read Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer in Windows 10


    Please complete Sea Tools long generic, and Samsung Magician before running the chkdsk commands.

    In post #2 with the reported boot problems Bree had you turn off hibernation.
    He did not know that the computer was having BSOD.
    In order to create dump files the computer will need to have a page file on the Windows drive.

    Open administrative command prompt and type:
    Powercfg -h on
    shutdown /r

    Indicate in the thread if you were or were not able to reboot normally.
    If you were not able to reboot normally then remove disk 0 or detach the cable and reboot.
    Then report into the thread whether there was any change.

    After turning hibernation on with the above command followed by a reboot, post an image for virtual memory / page file as was done in post #25.

    im just finishing up the disk image from Reflect. Then I am going to restart my pc to finalize an update that windows wants to install as a result of the blutooth troubleshooter.

    Then im going to try the instruction from post #37

    Then i will do the check disk stuff before going to bed.


    I have a few questions regarding some things

    1. So i can only run one disk at a time and i select the one i want to run with chkdsk /r /v [C:] where the thing in the bracket is the disk i want?

    2. If i try and do C: (my boot) and it does that lock disk thing and schedule for next time boot, wont i have issue getting it to do that if to get my pc to beoot i have to restart many times like i described earlier?

    3. Regarding the BSODs, I didnt think that the bluetooth troubleshoot did anything since it says "not fixed" on both?

    4. You mentioned earlier that i should read about driver verify process, but specifically stated not to do it yet till you said so. Then now you mention "
    nce you have a reliable backup image you can use the minimum space for restore points. System restore may be needed when using Windows driver verifier. So create several restore points over the next few days before using the tool" Does this mean you would like me to use the tool now?


    To clarify some things:

    You say my pc reports it had some BSODS, I honestly am terrible confused because it has not actually shown me a blue screen or any visible signs of crashing? It has frozen a few times while playing specifically Fallout 76, which im sure you know is a buggy mess so i just chocked it up to that.
