    BSOD ERROR: Critical_Process_Died (windows not booting)


    Hi I am new here. I have read from the instructions that I am supposed to post dump files but the problem is that my pc cant even boot into windows anymore.

    The error came about as I were reinstalling my driver for nvidia graphics card because a game I recently installed could not find PhysX even when it was already installed in my system. During the driver installation, my computer suddenly crashed and now windows would not boot anymore. It just gives the BSOD with the following error after flashing the windows 8 logo: Critical_Process_Died. Dump reaches but gets stuck at 100% and pc wont even restart after. I haven't created a recovery media beforehand and now I do not know what to do.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    How did you install Win8? If it came installed on the system, do you know someone with a Win8 system that can create a System Repair Disc for you? If not, please contact Asus support for a set of recovery disks.

    Post back if you're able to access another Win8 system and we'll see what we can work from there.
