    BSOD Critical Process Died

    Hello Everyone!

    Recently, my computer started freezing up at startup. It BSODs with the error in the title before making it to the login screen. Up to this point, I have run chkdsk /r /x which took two days and reported no errors and have attempted to run SFC /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=e:\windows\ which gave me the "windows resource protection could not start the repair service". I don't know how to get the scan to work and have already tried to manually start the trustedinstaller service.

    The system is Windows 8.1 on a 2tb raid array (mirror)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Here is all the debugging information I have from the memory dump:

    Hi Mrk3767 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I apologize for the late reply but there aren't many people who analyze the BSODs. Anyways, could you please follow the instructions over here and post your latest generated SF Diagnostic ZIP File?

    Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    If you are not able to get through the normal Windows, try running it through safe mode.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^.

    Hi mrk3767,

    Did you try a refresh of the system? Are you able to start the System Repair/ System Restore from the Installation disc?

    Keep me updated ^_^.
