    MULTI BSOD and crashes even after full DISK recovery!


    Hello, I am new to these forums so excuse me if I accidentally missed a step in the rules.

    Now my computer is a Lenovo Y500 with windows 8. A few weeks ago I heard a friend of mine was having BSOD problems and that his computer stopped booting completely. At firsts I thought that his problem would be fixed shortly and everything would be back to normal soon.

    WRONG.

    I brought my computer over and had a nice time, we were attempting to fix his computer by switching the hard drive out and changing his computer form windows 8 to windows 7. A USB device was used for that step. The USB device was not fully working so it was tested on the BSOD computer AND my fully working computer. His computer was fixed shortly after and began running again.

    I took my computer back home and immediately noticed a slow down so I reformatted my computer.....it still seemed really choppy and laggy and froze alot. A day later I begin to get blue screens out the A$$ and eventually it comes to a Automatic repair loop. I had to order a recovery disk because my one key recovery no longer worked. I Ordered the recovery disk and bam my computer seemed to be working again after a long recovery process.

    Foolishly I took my computer back to the place it seemed to work fine. Upon coming home again. I begin to notice problems and bam my computer tells me that It is in danger back up files or you may possibly lose them.

    Another friend buys a new computer and he takes it to the BSOD house. Guess what he got? The BSOD he was using the flash drive used to add windows 7 to a friends computer to add windows 7 to his new laptop when it happened 6 times in a row. He recovered his computer and it seems to be working fine for now.

    However my computer isn't; even after recovering it. While yes, it is moving fast and working great. The computer STILL gives me the warning that i must back up my files and what not. I also tried the CHKDSK in command prompt and it froze on 27% so I stopped it. I checked the D: and C: drives from my computer and going to properties but it said there are no problems.

    The program that DOES let me know the problem still persists is the constant reminder telling me that their is a problem with the Device. Also my Intel rapid story device places an exclamation point on the HDD and says that one or more events, and data may be at risk. I do not know what to do...I feel that it is either a virus from the flash drive or possibly a Hardware problem caused by a surge in his house, but if that was true 2 of my other friends laptops would be fried as well.

    Note: It seems that this slowly happens over time each time I recover my HDD. The blue screens barely come. Its when I notice Games, and programs malfunction that the blue screen begins to show its ugly Mug again.

    Hello Huntsman9,

    Please check here Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions for BSOD posting instructions. You've included a lot of information but there are no .dmp files.

    From your hotfix.txt file you seem to only have 5 updates installed. You should have many more than that - I have 110. Go to windows update and install everything. You may have to do this several times to get everything. It would be a good start.

    ahh the problem with only 5 updates installed is that I just freshly recovered the computer. If my computer hasn't blue screened just yet can I still get the .dmp files? I am using the grab all button on SF diagnostic tool. I Forgot to do that..

    Edit: when doing this it says No Dump found. Collection still in progress.

    If there is no dump found there are only 2 reasons I can think of.
    1. You have disabled the pagefile - if you have please re-enable it and make it 400MB minimum. You could look here but you would know if you changed it How to determine the appropriate page file size for 64-bit versions of Windows
    2. Your computer didn't actually crash.

    Windows 8 doesn't bluescreen (at least in my experience - I've not seen the actual blue screen since NT). What it does is just reboots when it hits a stop error. You should (assuming that you haven't disabled the page file) see a file ending in xxxx.dmp in the Windows/MiniDump directory or just Windows/MEMORY.dmp. It might be elsewhere - you can choose another location if you want but lets not get into that yet. You can search for.dmp files and if you don't have any you'll have to wait until it happens again as refresh replaces you Windows directory. They might still be there in Windows.old but it isn't worth looking into that yet today. We will if we have to.

    Don't run CCleaner or disk cleanup as these generally delete them.

    Almost always (well usually, I don't want to overstate it) stop errors are because of drivers. You say you have yellow triangle for some - you need to fix that.

    Can you update everything in windows update and then (if you can) fix everything in device manager and we'll take it from there.

    Let me know if I'm not being clear,

    cheers,

    Adam
