    BSOD Critical Process Died


    Well 2 days ago i got critical process died error screen, so the main problem is i cant get in my desktop. I also cant get in safe mode because it also gets the error

    The error occured when i was recovering my system to a day before but instead of completing or idk what, i got the error and it keeps looping.

    I cannot enter the desktop so i cant send dumpfiles or use softwares.

    I also put win 8 on cd and usb i even made a windows xp cd but nothing works. Its like my pc cant recognize the usb or the cd on startup. I also changed
    My boot order but nothing works.

    I also gotta say the pc is like 1 year old.

    Here is a video i made showing the problem and the specs are in the description.

    Hi Justrandomk & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    According to the video, it seems to BSOD when the Windows is loading up the files. Did you make the Windows 8 BOOTABLE so that it could be recognized correctly?

    As soon as the computer starts up, start pressing F8 real fast so that you get the option of Safe mode. What options do you get there? Do you see an option of "Last Known Good Configuration"? If so, then see if you are able to use that option.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^

    Thx for the quick answer but i get the same error when booting in safe mode and last known configuration does not show up.

    And yea i made the cd with imgburn so it should be bootable.

    And usb doesnt work at all i also made it bootable.

    Oh yea and before i got this error, sometimes i had service exeption error but not that much, not sure it will help.

    Are you able to get into the BIOS Settings?

    Kindly follow the below Hardware Diagnostics (Only, MEMTEST and HDD Diagnostics) -
    Hardware Diagnostics

    If there are no errors in the above tests, kindly see if you can perform the Hardware Stripdown to make sure that it is no hardware component trying to cause a problem?
    Hardware Stripdown Troubleshooting

    Also, did you try creating a Bootable Windows 8 USB drive and see if it is able to boot the system up?

    Yes i can get in bios, but im not sure if i can run those tests since i already tried bootable usb and cd.

    nothing works well i tried windows 7 cd, did not try 8 because i dont have it.

    What was the result of the Hardware Stripdown troubleshooting I suggested in my previous install?
