Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

I've tried running MemTest. I ran it for a couple of hours (~10 tests) and it passed all of them. But right after that during the Windows boot I received this BSOD:

I found out that dtsoftbus01.sys is related to Daemon Tools so I booted up in Safe Mode, uninstalled the thing - no more BSOD. But as soon as chose to login using the fingerprint reader the computer got stuck again. I reboot, choose to enter the username manually, type in the details and the OS gets frozen again on the Welcome Screen.


After running sfc /scannow and chkdisk in Safe Mode I didn't know what to do but restore to defaults using Rescue & Recovery (but that would totally wipe the thing out destroying my PostgreSQL database which would kind of suck). So I gave it another chance and tried the option of starting Windows with last known good configuration that worked. And what do you know - it did boot up and I finally got to logon, although I don't know if my system is now stable or not..


Here's the report from WhoCrashed:

Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

That bluescreen is definately caused by a bug in the Daemon Tools virtual device driver. The same bug could have also caused 10-minute freezes. Do you have any additional problems? If not, I would attribute the problem to Daemon Tools and consider it solved.

Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

I have completely got rid of the Daemon Tools and still had the freeze ...

I'ts really starting to annoy me. I'll probably go for the R&R restore thing and see if that happens with the freshly reinstalled OS.

 

I have one question about R&R. Will it wipe out both partition or just the root partition which is C:\? I'm gonna move some files to partition D:\ and then restore my fresh Windows installation.

Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

I'm not sure about the R&R thing. I've heard of people who have had trouble with R&R when there were multiple partitions on the hard drive though.

Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

I ended up completely reinstalling the Windows (I purchased my ThinkPad with DOS only, since I had the license key from my old laptop, which I kind of regret now because it didn't have the hidden recovery partition..). I opened up the System Update and it found a whole bunch of drivers that weren't install at first (last time it mostly was utilities and the nVidia Optmus driver, now there was a ton more system drivers etc.)

 

So I guess the instability of my system came from incompletely installed drivers and missing apps (mostly Intel stuff). So far so good, the system has been running very stable and I think that the battery life is way much better now than it was before (Before the reinstall it was about 1-1.5hrs on Max. Performance and now it's almost 3hrs).

 

So anyone experienced these freezes, make sure the System Update downloads all the necessary drivers (it should be 20+ something). If it doesn't go to the Lenovo Support site, detect your system and download them manually (especially these Intel AMT ones, chipset and HDD thingies).

Re: OS freeze and force shutdown

I have had several issues with company laptops freezing and removing Lenovo Power Management software (not the driver) seemed to fix it.

That license can only legally be used on your old laptop. Not too smart to admit to breaking the law on a public forum.
