Debugging :: BSOD On Asus S400C - Incredibly Slow / Delayed Start Up
Sep 15, 2014
So last Sunday I woke up grabbed my computer which I had simply closed the night before, nothing unusual and the screen was all black so I just figured it was a random problem and manually shut down. When I powered back on initially I got zero response, just a black screen, no HD activity no fan spinning eventually (anywhere from 5-15 minutes) in a sort of delayed boot action it began booting but it took forever to boot into Windows 8.1 which I upgraded to months ago.
So my question is two-fold, I don't think the BSOD issue is related to the incredibly slow/delayed start up, because this happens before the OS even begins loading if I'm not mistaken.
The first part of my issue are the random BSODs which also started happening for a while I was getting a warning about Intel Rapid Storage that I never bothered to read, and eventually it just went away after I did updates.
But this computer has just randomly shut off while I was using it, not crashed, just lost power.
My laptop is never usually that slow but last night it was really slow and I restarted it but it took about 5-10 mins to get to the gateway loading logo an after awhile it said diagnosing but it didn't do anything, this morning I switched it on and it came on the login screen straight away but it took me like 5 mins to login cause it was being so slow but I finally log in and it takes like 10-20 seconds just to right click on something so I went on task manager to check if anything was full and disk was 99% full by things like system, AVG, service host, host process but I've never has a problem with avg.
I was perplexed about the slow logon process of Windows 8 considering the fact that it starts from an SSD.I have Fast-Boot disabled. The login windows comes up really quick, but after signing in it seemed annoyingly slow to me, like it was waiting intensionally 30 seconds for some cup of coffee before the desktop shows up.
I've googled a bit and found this, and old WIN7 bug still seems to be valid with Windows 8:The Welcome screen may be displayed for 30 seconds during the logon process after you set a solid color as the desktop background in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2
Even though I use a wallpaper background, the workaround with the registry hack solved my slow login times. Now logon is as fast as I expect it.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem create a new DWORD called DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout and set its value to 5.
It might take several boot up's to work, but after 4 times it worked for me.
I've been having the BSOD Issue for a week or two now. It takes forever to boot and then it gives me a blue screen with the Error Driver_Power_State_Failure. I tried going back restore points...that dint work.
I also tried Refreshing and Resetting the PC using those settings on Windows...Still same issues...And also because of this...my system is becoming very slow now as well.
only times that it happens is when using backup software.
I use Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14, and when running backups of drives the system crashes, with errors to ntoskrnl.exe and ntdll.sys. So I tried a couple of other backup software (Acronis True Image and Easeus ToDo Backup) and still the same thing happens. When using the inbuilt Windows 8.1 Image Backup the computer is very slow, cannot do anything else!
Searched my PC for the two files, no sign of ntdll.sys!
I have attached a screen shot of the ntoskrnl.exe files found.
Recently i've been getting the BSOD out of nowhere. It happens roughly every 30-40 minutes for the past few hours regardless of what im doing and my laptop has become rediculously slow. The blue screen says "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR".
im having some problems since i updated to windows 8.1, a month ago i had bsod regarding my bluetooth driver qualcomm atheros, I am attaching some minidumps
I dont know if there are any known issues with n550jv model running windows 8.1, something else, i changed my hdd into a ssd samsung evo and changed the 2x4 ram into a 2x8 ram, but it was like 3 months ago and this started like a month ago with windows 8.1
I have a Asus pc, that has been crashing all the time due to unknown reasons. I have experienced that as soon as it hangs due to some process that is taking some time, it usually ends with a BSOD. I can let the computer alone and when I come back it has crashed, apparently for no reason, since I have not been using it for anything.
It crashes and gives the BSOD for many different reasons, I don't have the complete overview of all the reason, but above two listed reasons are the most significant. I have been using WhoCrashed, but does seem to get anywhere with the information provided by this. The PC is a new laptop.
I have followed the instruction and I'm uploading the zip file created by SF Diagnostic Tool.
Bought a new laptop almost a year ago, i was never able to find the cause of the crashes.
Here some specs
- Intel i7-3537U CPU - Asus K56CB motherboard - NVIDIA GeForce GT 740m Dedicated GPU - Intel HD Graphics 4000 Integrated GPU - 4gb 1600 Ram, single stick - Windows 8.1 (had the same problem with win 8)
On every game i play i get random freezes, random crashes, random BSODs, some games do crash more frequently than others, I've tried older drivers, I've also formatted my pc but the problem is still there...I am not using any antivirus, windows defender is enough for me.
What gets on my nerves the most is that even on old games like quake live do crash and sometime it also gives me BSODs, the fps are constant and quite high but i randomly get freezes (about 0,5 - 1 second long)...
another example, im playing SMITE, i get 80-150 fps but the game crashes every 2-5 mins, this game rarely gives me BSODs, when im lucky the game wont crash for 20-30min, but its very rare. the gpu can reach 80-85C. With "crash" i mean black screen with a window saying "Game.exe has stopped working"
There are other odds things happening on this notebook, for example i cant access to the bios while booting, i can only access to it once i log to my windows account, another strange thing is when i left click any file sometime it takes 10-15 seconds to get the "open, open with, copy, paste, cut etc.. window opened". I've also noticed that sometime while gaming my disk usage get to 100% for an instant and when that happens i get a lag spike/freeze...
If no way to find the source of my problems ill build a desktop and than ill keep sending the notebook to warranty until they fix it . I've still got 1 year of warranty, I've also sent it once already but they only changed the hard disk, and it didn't solve the problem too ...
-Ram-TEST lasted nine hours and successfully completed -Change the motherboard (ASUS Sabertooth 990FX From R2.0 to MSI 890FX-GD70, the latter shall use at this time, the other I sold it) -Changed video card (ATI 6870 Updated NVIDIA 760) -Replaced SSD where the system resides, had a value SMART wrong, incorrectly replaced by Samsung (EVO 250GB) -Analyzed by-DUMP bluescreenanalizer and semrpe the same file with the same bug tails -Windows-formatted 3 times already
The temperatures are good .. I also have a Corsair H100i and a fairly spacious case that allows good ventilation (CM Storm Trooper) This is my components: CPU: AMD FX8350 RAM: 16GB (4 x 4) G SKILL 1866 MHz CAS 8 SSD: 250GB Samsung EVO Video Card: Zotac 760 amp edition! HDD: 3TB WD, 250GB WD Motherboard: MSI 890FX-GD70 Sound Card: Asus Xonar Phoebus ONLY Case: CM Storm Trooper Black Win 8.1 x64 Original I repeat that I do not overclock, the frequencies are those of series
Now I'll explain when I turn on my pc at COLD (the day after practically) happens to me .. and not always! However, if you reboot immediately after work PERFECTLY, and for hours and hours! without presenting problems or other, and even under stress. The next day, however, having been off the night it happens it happens .. this blue screen without doing anything specific! Coincidentally, sometimes even if I do nothing on windows just turned on, or a complete on the internet, or other, causally!
Most of the time i turn the pc on and i get the bsod with this message and it tryed to auto fix but to no avail. It was only doing it when I played games but I am lucky if I can get the pc to run for 10 mins without it going black screen then restarting.
gpu geforce gtx 560 ti cpu amd fx(tm) 8150 eight core processor memory 8.00gb ram (7.98 usable) resolution 1920 x 1080 60hz driver version 335.23 os windows 8 pro
When I start up my computer, go into windows, it takes a while to load then I get bsod and it restarts then works perfect, so now if I run it cold, I reset it immediately after switching it on, then it works. WTF?!
Plus now, it has started getting really slow and it lags. Like if I play music off my hard-drive, my 2tb storage, then open up chrome or do anything it gives me this electrical sounding lag. What can I do?
So recently bought a new PSU, Motherboard and 8GB of more RAM. I thought the BSOD's in the past were caused by a crap PSU however I bought an 80+ Corsair one and upgraded to a Z77 MPOWER motherboard. Have 4 crash dumps and only turned it on yesterday!
Last night my laptop (lenovo z400 ideapad, running windows 8 - i never updated to 8.1) went to a blue screen with a "kernel data inpage error" message. Tried to boot it back up, but once i entered my password and logged in, the screen looked wrong. The windows homepage had no apps and the background pattern was not the one i normally had. I couldn't click on anything, so i shut it back down and went to sleep. This morning, i turned it back on, and this time it looked normal when i logged in. However, after about a minute, it froze and would not unfreeze. Thats where i am now. I can open the computer in safe mode and it works fine, and through that i can access the event viewer and command prompt, etc. I did a disc repair, no luck, and a system restore failed. Like i said, computer only works in safe mode, so i dont know if I'll be able to do the right procedure to upload the dump file from the BSOD, but i can try. Lots of interesting things in the event viewer. I'm on my phone but i can sample them later.
I just got a new ASUS ultrabook (this week) that should be quite fast given the config (see config at the bottom). It is very fast indeed for internet browsing, video games etc, except all windows related tasks. Main examples:
- Opening a new folder can take 10 to 20 seconds - Opening windows settings takes approx 15 seconds - Opening a picture (!) takes approx 15 seconds and can make the computer freeze for a while
Something else I noticed: when I want to check windows updates, it doesn't seem to find any, but it doesn't tell me this; instead it just keeps looking for updates without ever ending.
Also as I said everything not windows related is very fast, I can open 30 tabs on chrome without any problem etc.
My suspects :
- A virus (after a week only??) - Some of the stuff ASUS installs by default on their machines
My config: Brand: ASUS Zenbook UX302LG OS: Windows 8 Pro Processor: Intel Core i7 4500U Processor Memory: DDR3L 1600 MHz SDRAM, 8 G Graphic: NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M 2GB DDR3 VRAM Storage: 750GB HDD With 16G SSD Antivirus: McAfee (installed by default, will change it asap)
BSOD error. I've read through some posts with similar errors and I've done my best to try some of the basic solutions for this (i.e., update drivers) but can't seem to pin down the actual problem.
I woke up this morning and I had a Driver Power State Failure message on my computer. I've spent all day trying to get it fixed and I'm about to throw this 3 month old laptop through the window (I'm running a Lenovo Y510P with Windows 8.1).
In addition to the BSOD when I try to shut down my computer it never actually shuts down. The screen will go black for about 5 minutes but the light on the power button stays on and the computer starts back up again on its own. However it never actually gets to the desktop. The circle of dots just keeps going and going and after I force it to shut down twice the Automatic Repair kicks in but it says it couldn't fix the issue. When I enter the advanced options and do a system restore I can finally get to the desktop. When I try doing a system restore from the desktop it will get to the end and I get an error message saying it didn't work.
When I get to the desktop some things just don't work right. Right click on a folder, clicking on the file explorer pinned to the taskbar, etc. locks explorer up for a minute then nothing happens.
I've also ran SFC and a it said some files were corrupt and couldn't be repaired. Attached are my log files.
my laptop (Asus A45V) is only 7 months old, this was originally from my father but since he isn't using it anymore he gave it to me. The problem goes like this, after he gave the laptop to me, i reformatted the laptop (reset to factory settings) then i noticed even after the reformat the laptop is slow. I tried to update every drivers and BIOS but the problem still persists. Sometimes it even hangs up and i can't do anything but to wait. And also i downloaded a game (which i truly believe the laptop can handle it since the requirements isn't that high end, the game's Heroes of Newerth) I can't even play it normally even on low settings the game runs very slow. The question is, what could be the problem? i posted my laptop's specs below:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. K45VD BIOS: 231 Total Memory: 2.00GB Usable: 1.88GB HDD: WDC WD7500BPVT-80HXZT3 Sound Card: (1) Intel(R) Display Audio (2) Bluetooth Audio Device (3) Realtek High Definition Audio (4) NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM) Graphics Card: (1) NVIDIA GeForce 610M (2) Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 OS: Microsoft Windows 8 Single Language 64-bit 9200 Multiprocessor Free
We have a computer that went BSOD this morning on startup. (Windows 8.1 PRO 64 bit) From what we can tell, nothing has changed since last Tuesday/Wednesday. It was shut down every night and restarted everyday for the last 5 days.
This morning, it starts up through normal boot process, shows Windows 8 icon, we hear the start up tune and then it goes black and then BSOD.
I made a recovery USB stick with another computer running Windows 8.1 PRO 64 bit. The problem computer then boots up the USB and we run the repair options and nothing worked.
We went through the command prompt bootrec /fixmbr and associated steps. No go.
We are getting stuck at what to do and are looking at reinstalling. We have a Windows 8.0 license, so Windows 8.1 upgrade is not refreshable or reinstallable at this point. When I went to reinstall Windows 8.0, of course Windows 8.1 is locked.....
Since last night, I've had this Automatic Maintenance notification randomly pop up in Action Center which simply refuses to go away:
I've already run the maintenance multiple times, and it seems to complete just fine, but the notification never goes away and it always tells me the maintenance was delayed after it supposedly finished:
I've also gone into Task Scheduler and manually run the Regular Maintenance task per the solution here, but no dice. Also rebooted the system many times.
