So recently I have been getting a lot of random BSoD. At first everything seems normal. But after my Computer restarts it doesn't boot back to Windows, instead it shows me this.



Restarting the PC wouldn't do anything. I have to power off and on the PSU for it to boot to Windows. The annoying thing is I can't find the source of the problem.

Specs:

CPU: i5-4460
GPU: RX 470
RAM: 16gb
SSD: 128gb
HDD: 500gb
Motherboard: ASRock H81M-VG4
PSU: Super Flower 650 Watts

And just to answer in advance, no, I haven't used or installed Linux.

Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .
what make/model is ssd? I assume its windows drive?

One fix for Grub rescue is to run startup repair
  1. go to settings/update & security/recovery
  2. under advanced startup, click restart now button
  3. this restarts PC in a blue menu
  4. choose troubleshoot
  5. choose advanced
  6. choose startup repair
  7. this will scan PC and maybe fix this - will ask for logon info

I configured the Dump, I will wait till the next BSOD.

Login info for startup repair just isn't working for me, I typed in the correct password(I double checked on my phone), it just says that its incorrect, at first I thought it asks me for my PIN, but that didn't work aswell.

Startup repair rarely helps anyway.

see if this helps
right click start button

choose powershell (admin)

copy/paste this command into window:

Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth

and press enter

Then type SFC /scannow

and press enter


Restart PC if SFC fixes any files as some fixes require a restart to be implemented

First command repairs the files SFC uses to clean files, and SFC fixes system files

also, open command prompt (admin)
type chkdsk C: /f and press enter
2 paragraphs will pop up
agree to running at startup
restart PC and let it scan ssd

this last command similar in effect to startup repair.

So this is weird, I just got a BSOD, but after I booted back to windows there was no Minidump, I did notice that percentage(BSOD) stayed at 0%. So maybe it didn't even collect any data.

So basically it just stayed like this until it restarted:

So basically I still dont have a clue what might be the issue, i will probably just reinstall windows 10(i dont have important files on my disks anyways). Atleast then I will see if its happening because of hardware.
