    I always get a BSOD on boot, caused by ntoskrnl.exe


    Hey everyone, after checking these forums for some time now, I decided to finally post my problems and get some help.

    I got my pc about 2 weeks ago, and ever since I got it, almost always there is a BSOD on boot, but after that I am able to use it just fine.. it has just gotten sort of frustrating. I even did a system reset, but that did not work at all.

    I would gladly appreciate it if somebody could help me out, and if I forgot to include anything else, please tell me

    0x0000000A error is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I saw that you had multiple dump files; I checked the more recent ones. You must check that your computer is compatible with Windows.

    I would advise you to run sfc /scannow; I don't really know much about BSODs, but that command is very helpful for problems related to software.

    Well, I think that software is the problem here; try the command I gave you and see what will happen. Most likely you have a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS. If this is the case, press F8 while Windows is booting. This will show you the Advanced Boot Options menu. Select "Last Known Good Configuration".

    In case you have an incompatible device driver, system service, virus scanner, or backup tool, run the system diagnostics of your computer manufacturer (especially the memory one). For details on these procedures, see the owner's manual for your computer. If your system has small computer system interface (SCSI) adapters, contact the adapter manufacturer to obtain updated Windows drivers. Try disabling sync negotiation in the SCSI BIOS, checking the cabling and the SCSI IDs of each device, and confirming proper termination. For integrated device electronics (IDE) devices, define the onboard IDE port as Primary only. Also, check each IDE device for the proper master/subordinate/stand-alone setting. Try removing all IDE devices except for hard disks.

    If your computer is fine, let us know. If it is not, we will try to give you as much help as we can.

    These solutions are for 0x0000000A BSODs.

    Hi, I appreciate the reply
    I updated my drivers yesterday, but still nothing. I got another blue screen today(I will post the dump files)
    I ran the sfc scan, but I was presented with: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" what should I do now?

    1. Open Memory Diagnostics Tool by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type Memory, and then click Diagnose your computer's memory problems.* If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. Choose when to run the tool.

      Since the culprit must be the memory, you have to test it with this tool.
      As for sfc /scannow, it won't fix your memory problems.
      Try the bundled-with-Windows memory diagnostics tool and let me know what happened.

    I ran the Memory diagnostic, and there were no errors.. I am kind of giving up at this point in trying to solve the issue :/

    The only thing I can tell you to do now is System Restore to a point in which these BSODs never occured. Otherwise the other steps I can give you is debugging, but I haven't tried it, so I don't know what it will do to your computer. You can also check System Log in Event Viewer,should you have any incompatible device driver,virus scanner, backup tool or system service.
